GROWING DEEP.
REACHING WIDE.

Welcome

RVCF is a place where people can meet Jesus, engage in life-giving community, and everyone is welcome. We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts and use them for God's glory. Join us for our Sunday services!

Service Times

Sundays at 8:30, 10:00, & 11:00AM.

We've got a place for you.

Each Sunday morning service provides the same contemporary music played by a worship band and a sermon from the Bible in two different locations on the same campus.
The North Venue is the original sanctuary featuring pew seating, a beautiful wooden beam structure with a more traditional feel.
The South Venue, built in 2013, is a more intimate, informal setting with a contemporary feel. Give both a try and see what fits your worship experience best.

Understanding Advent 

Throughout the Bible, God promised The Advent or coming of his son, Jesus. This is one of the most important events in all of human history — the almighty, eternal, creator of the universe becoming human, living among us, and suffering on our behalf in order to give us life.

The Old Testament looked expectantly for The Advent of God's forever king, the anointed one who would bring peace to his people.  Isaiah 9:6 anticipates and declares, "For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.


For centuries, Christians around the world have used the four weeks leading up to Christmas to prepare themselves for the celebration of Jesus’ birth. It’s a time when we observe his first coming while we also look forward to his second coming.

Each of the four weeks leading up to Advent is focused on hope, peace, joy, and love respectively. Hope can be described as an eager expectation for good. It carries the connotation of waiting. Peace, in the Bible, is not just the absence of conflict but the presence of something much more significant.

"Peace" is a very common word in English, that means different things
to different people. It's also a very important word in the Bible that refers
not only to the absence of conflict but also to the presence of something
else. In this video, we'll explore the core meaning of biblical
peace and how it all leads to Jesus.

In the Bible people who have hope are very different from optimists! In this video, we’ll explore how biblical hope looks to God’s character alone as a basis for trusting that the future will be better than the present.

According to the latest census, there are 60,000 residents of Kankakee County disconnected from the local church. Broken families, suicide, rising heroin use, and racial tensions demonstrate the need for the Gospel. Our community is in need of renewal.
