ONGOING MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
Sunday School: A time of fellowship, worship, and the study of God's Word. We believe the Holy Spirit changes people through the Word of God, so the Scriptures are at the forefront of all our teaching. Students are placed in classes based upon the grade they are in. Here is what each class is studying this Fall.
- 9th Grade: Confirmation led by Moose and Carrie Pierce and Andrew Shields: Students will be prepared and to encouraged to assume personal responsibility and individual accountability for their relationship with Jesus Christ and their commitment to His Church. They will offer a brief testimony of personal faith in Jesus Christ before the Session; and to stand before God and His people in corporate worship and publicly profess, with sincerity, their personal faith in Christ.
- 10th Grade: Apologetics led by Steve Mullen and Vance Pickard: Using Tim Keller’s Reason for God video series students will learn how to defend the Christian faith. Keller addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics and non-believers bring to religion. To true believers, he offers a solid platform on which to stand against the backlash toward religion spawned by the Age of Skepticism.
- 11th-12th Grade: Ecclesiastes led by Shane and Laura Whelan: Ecclesiastes was written to shake up our expectations and priorities for what it means to live “the good life.” Considering the reality of death helps us pay attention to our limitations as human beings and receive life as a wondrous gift from God—freeing us to live wisely, generously, and faithfully for God’s glory and the good of his world.
Sunday Night Live: SNL takes place during the school year and is a relational time of snacks, fun, and games. We believe the Holy Spirit changes people through the Word and relationships, so please come and enjoy spending time with each other. Please contact Shane Whelan for the schedule or you can view the church calendar.
Rivermont Fellowship Night: The Gospel of Mark led by Shane Whelan and team: Of the four Gospels, Mark is the shortest and also the fastest-paced Gospel account. Mark focuses on Jesus as the one who ushers in the kingdom of God. Through his life and teaching, but especially through his death and resurrection, Jesus fulfills all the Old Testament hopes and promises, bringing in the long-expected new age. RFN meets each Wednesday night through April 1. Dinner is at 5:45pm in the Fellowship Hall and Bible study begins at 6:30pm.
636: A time for high school boys to connect during the school year every other week from 6:36-7:16am at Biscuitville on Old Forest Rd. See the church calendar for exact dates.
No Walls Picnic: Join us the 2nd Saturday of every month at the Hunton-Randolph Center on 12th Street from 12:00-2:00pm for a meal and fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ from the No Walls ministry.
