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.
For summer 2019, we have all ages (k-90) meet in the fellowship hall upstairs in order to lay or solidify our foundational beliefs through the New City Catechism. We learn the catechisms together through song, table discussions, lecture, and a sprinkling of activities. If you’d like to see more about the New City Catechism, feel free to check it out at this link.

Your Word Is Truth (High School, Grades 9-12)
The goal of this study is that, through the work of the Holy Spirit, the authoritative Truth of the Bible might be understood and embraced so students may see and interpret all of life through the Truth of Scripture.
Our hope is that students would not be conformed to the thinking of this world, but be transformed by the renewal of their minds, that by testing they might discern what is good and acceptable (Romans 12:2). Finally, as the students grow in their own love and delight of the Truth, we want to encourage and equip them to stand firm in an increasingly hostile culture, boldly and humbly proclaiming the triumphant Truth of the Gospel.
How Majestic Is Your Name
(Middle School, Grades 5-8)
The names of God in the Bible are a reflection of His character, which is so glorious that He cannot be described by a single name. His character is communicated in hundreds of names progressively revealed in the Bible. But the focus of How Majestic Is Your Name is not the many names, titles and references to God. These are merely the structure to show the greatness of our God. Each lesson presents glorious truths about God and encourages students to see and rejoice in His goodness and greatness.

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.
