Riverview Bible Studies

 

Seeking the Straying and Welcoming the Wandering

Every Sunday at 9:15 am in the Fellowship Hall
Led by Pastor Wagner
 
All of us know someone who has wandered from the spiritual fold. How can we encourage them to come back? And how will we treat them when they return, so that they keep coming back to hear God's Word and worship and serve our Lord with us?

Galatians and Justification

Every Monday at 1:00 pm in the Church Library
Led by Pastor Belter
 
St. Paul wrote in Galatians 1:8: “Even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!” The gospel was under attack in Galatia, as it is in our world today. In this study, we are studying the book of Galatians, with its important focus on that precious gospel

Jesus' "I AM" Statements

Third Saturday of Each Month at 6:30 pm
Hosted in the Homes of Riverview Members
Led by Riverview Pastors
 
Borrowing a significant phrase from God's covenant relationship with Israel, Jesus often used the words, "I AM..." to compare himself to a familiar person or object. We will examine these profound words Jesus used to describe himself and their significance for our faith and life. 
 

Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?

First Tuesday of Each Month (beginning October 1) at 6:30 pm
Led by Pastor Wagner

Participants will purchase a copy of the book and read a designated section to discuss each month. Here is a preview of the book we will be studying in the coming months: 

When’s the last time you stepped up to the counter and ordered one medium-size Jesus, extra generous, and heavy on the bling? Or maybe you like your Jesus supersized! No? Perhaps you prefer yours extra small, and hold the onion please.
Here’s the same question: When’s the last time you took a hammer and a chisel to the Jesus of the Bible and formed Him into your own personal Jesus?
Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?, by Matthew Richard, not only reminds us who the real Jesus of the Bible is, but it also reveals to us twelve false christs who are embraced, loved, promoted, and revered—even by well-meaning Christians.

Participants may order the book themselves (in paperback or Kindle format) from CPH.org, Amazon.com, or another bookseller. Interested participants who would like Riverview to order the paperback version may sign up in the church entryway or by clicking here.
 


High school & Middle School

Bible Studies

Every Sunday at 9:15 am
High School Bible Study Led by Mr. Witte in the School Library
Middle School Bible Study Led by Various Teachers in Mr. Witte's Classroom
 
Our High School (Gr 9-12) and Middle School (Gr 6-8) Bible Studies strive to give young people a setting to dig into the Scriptures and discuss how they provide comfort, guidance, strength, and encouragement for the ups and downs that Christians face from youth into adulthood.
 

Bible Basics classes

 
These classes offer a review of the Christian faith for long-time members and an introduction to the faith for those who are interested in membership or simply curious about what we believe and teach. They are scheduled at various times throughout the year. New classes will begin in mid to late September. If you are interested in participating, contact Pastor Wagner or Pastor Belter.
