What to expect at Riverview Christian

At Riverview, you'll be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by people who are excited to see you. We want you to have an idea of what to expect when you arrive at a Riverview Christian. All you have to do from here is come as you are and find out more for yourself!

When are your services?

Our service is at 10:30a.m. every Sunday and each service lasts about an hour and a half.

What should I wear?

At Riverview Christian, our focus is on worshipping God, not on what you wear. Don't feel like you have to dress up. Most people wear casual attire, but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable.

What is your worship like?

Our congregation worships in a contemporary style. You may see people with their hands up or down, eyes open or closed; but worship at Riverview Christian is all about honoring and giving praise to our Lord and Heavenly Father. So please feel free to worship in the way that you feel led! However, worship is more than just singing. Worship involves all that we do together as the body of believers before our Lord. At Riverview Christian, you will also see us worshipping God through reading the Bible; listening to the preaching of God's Word; sharing in an offering of our gifts and tithes; and spending time in community before and after the service.

Do you expect me to give to the offering?

We expect visitors to Riverview Christian to give to our offering only if they feel led to do so. Visitors should not feel any expectations to contribute to the ministries and mission of our church, nor will they be thought of any differently if they choose to not participate in the offering. We believe that God has called all believers to give a portion of their time and money to Him, as all that we have belongs to our Eternal Father. However, how much or what a person gives is between that person and God.

What programs do you offer for children?

Infants up to age 2 may be dropped off in our "Infant 1" room and children age 2 - 4 in our "Toddler 2" room 15 minutes before the service. Children age 6 - 12 are dismissed during the service.

How do I know that my children will be safe?

Anyone who works with children in our Sunday Kingdom Kids program or in our Early Learning Center has completed 3 background checks.

I'd like to talk more about what I heard during this service. Who can I talk to?

We'd love to talk to you! After the service, feel free to approach the pastor. During the week, if you would like to schedule a time to talk with the pastor, please call the church office at 610-921-8998 ext. 200 to schedule a meeting.
