Riverview Youth Ministry
the goal of Riverview's student ministries is to come alongside parents as they seek to build a biblical worldview in their children as they grow into God-glorifying young adults.

Open My Eyes (High School, Grades 9-12)
Treasures are not for the fainthearted, and Bible study is hard work. But prayer, careful reading, and meditation, combined with good Bible study skills, produce a bountiful harvest of truth and understanding. Open My Eyes is a curriculum for senior high youth on how to study the Bible. It focuses on the different genres of biblical literature and the process of inductive Bible study, and provides opportunities to practice the skills of observation, interpretation, and application. The end goal is that students might understand God’s Word as the biblical authors intended, and begin a life-long journey of learning to know and treasure God through studying and applying His Word to their everyday lives.
Teach Me Your Way
(Middle School, Grades 5-8)
This study encourages students to surrender to Jesus in salvation and submit their minds, hearts, and wills to His way in obedience. The first several lessons of the curriculum focus on the need for salvation, and on God’s work in making idolaters into worshipers of Himself. Then, students examine the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), focusing on the inward heart attitude of a person who is submitted to Christ and His ways. The lessons explore the human tendency to worship the creation rather than the Creator, and to pursue the temporal benefits of the world over the eternal value of knowing Christ.

The Gospel Project (grades 7-12)
The Gospel Project for Students is a Christ-centered, chronological study that will take your students on a journey through the storyline of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. Along the way, students will discover the big picture of what God has been doing throughout redemptive history, and what it means for them. With every session we want to promote gospel transformation (not simply behavioral modification) as they see how the Bible fits together and compels them to live for Christ every day. Also, as every age group in the church covers the same passage each week, families will be encouraged to discuss at home the same passage they had studied separately at church.
Events & Service Projects
Riverview's youth regularly participate in special events and service projects that build relationships among teenagers and show them what it means to love, follow, and serve Jesus. See the Calendar page for upcoming youth events and service projects.
