H ere at Riverview we understand the importance of connecting and building relationships with others within the church body. In so doing, we also believe that the most effective way to achieve this is to become part of a small group community we call Sunday School. Our Adult Sunday School classes are supportive communities developing, and equipping people to build the Body of Christ.

Sunday School / Bible Studies

Our Sunday School Classes begin at 9:30 a.m.  Class age ranges are only suggestions.  Please feel free to attend the class you feel the most comfortable in.  If you’re a guest please feel free to visit the Welcome Center in the main hallway for assistance finding a class.

The book of Revelation: many folks consider it so mysterious and incomprehensible they won’t even read it.  Some think they have it all figured out and can name the day of Jesus’ second coming or the Rapture.  We can be certain God included it in the Bible for good reason and with the intent that we read it, study it and learn from it.  We are using John MacArthur’s study book, “Revelation – the Christian’s Ultimate Victory” to guide us through this fascinating final book of the Bible.  Come join us!

Sunday Mornings we meet at 9:30 at the FRAT House to study God’s word together, the discussion is definitely worth coming for!

Monday nights we meet for Board Games, Card games, snacks, and meaningful Christ-centered conversations.

We offer Precept studies in a small group setting with the goal of discipling people by establishing them in God’s word.  We do that by using the inductive Bible study method and materials to show you how to:

  • Discover truth for yourself
  • Know your God
  • Become a disciple of Jesus ChristAs you study with us you will learn to observe and discover what scripture says, interpret it accurately, and apply it practically.

You will find the experience fulfilling, convicting, very practical and, a lot of the time, just plain fun as the Bible comes to life before your eyes.  Come join us!
