About REO Town Venue

Our REO Town Venue is right in the heart of REO Town in downtown Lansing. If you’re driving to a service, you’ll find parking around back off the alley, as well as some designated lots in the area. You can also grab a ride from CATA and you’ll be dropped off right outside. However you get here, on your way in you’ll walk past a few local restaurants and shops, we recommend checking them out after service!

When you’re ready to come inside, one of our Welcome Team members will grab the door and help you find your way. If this is your first time, or if you have any questions about what we do here or how to get involved, we’d love for you to stop by our Info Center!

If you’re bringing kiddos (infant-6th grade), be sure to check out RivKids! It’ll be on your left when you walk in, and getting registered is a quick process. Pre-registration is currently required and opens at 10am Thursday mornings; you can register here. After dropping them in their classrooms, you’ll head down the hallway to our main auditorium for service.

11.21.21 | From Faith to Faith

Pleased To Be Obligated

As followers of Jesus we have all been invested in and impacted by others. How has your faith in Jesus changed or challenged your life path? Pastor Noel Jesse Heikkinen reminds us that we give because we’re obligated and indebted to what Jesus has done and what He does through our local church. At Riv we have a passion for the Bible, a passion for engaging culture, and a passion for telling people about Jesus.

Our RivKids volunteers serve kiddos ages infant – 6th grade on Sunday mornings. We provide all the materials you’ll need, just come a bit early on Sunday and play, sing, and learn with Riv’s kiddos.

The Production Team seeks to facilitate a culturally engaging environment for worship and proclamation of the Gospel through excellent execution of planned sound, video, and lighting elements. We get to the venue early each week to set up for services and then run all elements of production for service.
