We’re so excited that you're interested in RVCC GROUPS! We believe that following Jesus, and growing in that journey, happens best doing life alongside others. Finding a group for this next season of life is a great way to learn, make friends, and grow.

On this page you will find 20 groups, including Community Groups, Bible Studies, and Support Groups. You are invited to pick a group and jump in for ten weeks (unless otherwise noted). At the end of ten weeks, you can choose to stay with that group or give another group a try next quarter.
Joining a group is not a lifetime commitment, though we have some groups that have been together for a long time. You’ve been warned – doing life together is amazing and you may decide you really like it. As a matter of fact, we think you’ll love it!
