About Westside Venue

Our Westside Venue is right on the corner of St. Joe and Canal in West Lansing. We’re thankful to have a venue central to cities like Charlotte, Grand Ledge, Dewitt, and Eaton Rapids, for the Riv family to come and join together in worship.

If you’re bringing kiddos (infant-6th grade), be sure to check out RivKids! Enter through Door 3 and the desk will be on your right. One of our RivKids team members will be there to answer your questions and to register your kids if it’s your first time. 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. On your way you’ll pass our Info Center, if you have any questions about what we do here or how to get involved, we’d love for you to stop by and chat!

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.
