Our Services

What are services like?
Come as you are Feel free to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in, whether a t-shirt and jeans, or a button-down and slacks. Come a few minutes early if you want, so we can meet you and chat. During the gathering When you arrive, grab a cup of coffee and a complimentary light breakfast. We'll start our gathering with a song, next we'll share some quick announcements, then the band will come up and lead us in about 25 minutes of modern worship music. Afterwards, a pastor will share an easy to understand, relevant lesson from the Bible. We'll end our gathering by giving you an opportunity to receive some one-on-one prayer if you want, or need it. The whole service lasts about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Clear River Kids Church We provide nursery care and an exciting, fun-filled Kids Church program for children during our Sunday morning gatherings. Kids 5th grade and older are welcome to join the adults in our main gatherings

What is the community like?
Small groups are the foundation of our church community. It's all about doing life together. Small Groups are made up of about 6-12 people that meet on weeknights in peoples' homes and apartments. The main priorities of our Small Groups are to provide a casual, personal setting where people can build relationships with others, learn about the Bible and how it applies to our daily lives, and pray for one another.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We would love to have you join us!


Tony Ranvestel

Tony, our Lead Pastor, started our church in the summer of 2006 with a team of 13 people who moved to Lafayette from Champaign, IL. He has been married to his wife, Sarah, since 2002 and they have four kids, Raya, Brooks, Max and Jude. Before he became a pastor, he was planning on becoming a Tropical Biologist and spent several months living and doing research in the jungles of Latin America. Tony enjoys backpacking, fishing for smallmouth bass in the creeks around Lafayette, reading pop-science books and rooting for the Chicago Bears (even though he lives in Colts Country now). Tony’s responsibilities at Clear River include teaching, leader development and overseeing other pastors and staff.
