Let's Do Our Part!
Invite Someone to Church!
Hello brothers and sisters, this is Pastor Hewlett. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Riverview will be closed until further notice. However, we will be reviewing the status of our closing regularly, and based on the current situation in our country, our closing could extend well pass the month of April. With the coming of this virus we are navigating in uncharted waters, but we will get through this because God is with us. I know that's true because I know God, and God has already shown us that God has us covered. None of us is in this alone. That's why we will keep in touch with you through various means of acceptable contact, such as phone calls, conference calls, live streaming and other means of communication.
We will continue to be the Church, and we will continue to be the Riverview family. Our Sunday morning church service, Sunday school, Bible study and ministry meetings will continue the same way, through live streaming and conference calls, at the regularly scheduled times. Our prayer line is open and you can call in from 1-1:30, if you need prayer. Please continue to support Riverview by way of your monetary giving. The church office will be open for your convenience, and you can mail your tithes and offerings to 2604 Idlewood Avenue, Richmond, 23220, or drop them in the mail slot in the door, or you can use the Givelify app. If you have not downloaded the app yet, please go to the Playstore on your smartphone and you can do so there. Let us continue to pray together and God will see us through all things. God bless us and keep us all till we meet again at Riverview.
