A Matter of Life and Death

Every Sunday at 9:15 am in the Fellowship Hall
Online Sundays at 10:00 am - Click here for lessons and a link to join the study.

Led by Pastor Wagner

As the Bible prepares us for eternal life, it has a lot to say about life and death issues. This study will seek to answer these and other questions: Who determines when life begins and when life ends? What is the purpose of our time on earth? What does the Bible say about abortion, euthanasia, and suicide? How do I prepare for my death or the death of someone I love? What do I say to someone dealing with a terminal illness? How does a Christian mourn as one who has hope?


Every Monday at 1:00 pm in the Church Library This Bible Study is currently suspended, due to the coronavirus.
Led by Pastor Belter

"Justification" has been called the doctrine by which the Church stands or falls. It is all about God's forgiveness. It is the vital truth about how a just and holy God can draw condemned sinners to himself in Jesus Christ. It is a beautiful truth of grace and peace and hope for all. Join us for this uplifting look at the heart of God for sinners. 


Jesus' "I AM" Statements

Third Saturday of Each Month at 6:30 pm This Bible Study is currently suspended, due to the coronavirus.
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.
