It is the intention of this body of believers to provide a place for worship, training, and service. We accomplish this by "worshiping in spirit and in truth," by using God's Word as our authority, by sharing the love of Christ with everyone we come into contact with, and by encouraging all believers to become active in God's Army. We trust that you will find Christian fellowship and the presence of God when you join us for Sunday morning Worship Service and Sunday school. Jesus said His House is a House of Prayer; let us enter with thanksgiving, worship joyfully, and depart with the blessing of His Peace which passes all understanding. This congregation maintains a cooperative fellowship and is actively involved with the Pittsburgh Baptist Association and the American Baptist Churches/USA. Now in our 104th year, our services are held in a beautifully restored building, complete with stained glass windows.
WORSHIP SERVICE is at 11:00 AM. Our service is a traditional service that includes the time-honored hymns of our faith, contemporary worship songs, and special music that prepares us to receive the Word of God presented by Pastor Bruce Moses.
THE RIVERVIEW BAPTIST CHOIR welcomes interested members. Practice for Sunday Morning Worship Service and special music is on Monday evenings at 6:30.
CHILDREN'S CHURCH begins in the Worship service where the youth experience the congregational music, prayer and offering. Ages 3 to 5th Grade come together for a Bible lesson, a snack, and an activity which changes from week to week. Everyone is asked to uphold the youth in prayer.
The NURSERY is available on Sundays for families with children. We have a staff to care for your children, and you are welcome to check on your little one at any time. You will be contacted immediately should your child need you.
SUNDAY SCHOOL YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL A Bible based curriculum taught by dedicated Christians is available for Pre-school through 12th Grade. Group opening for the YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL begins at 9:45 AM with a time of singing and prayer. The youth divide into classes at 10:00 AM for 4 & 5 year old children, 1st and 2nd grade, and 3rd and 4th grade. Our Middle School class is for the 7th to 9th graders, and there is also a class especially for those in High School grades 10 - 12.
The Youth take on special projects during the year, such as packing hygiene kits and providing school scholarships for Haiti, and sending shoe boxes filled with gifts through Operation Christmas Child. Students perform in the Christmas Musical each year, the CHILDREN'S BELL CHOIR, and occasionally sing as a group in the worship service. The Youth Leaders make sure that fun and fellowship can be enjoyed throughout the year!
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES We have four adult classes to choose from. You are welcome to try each one to find your preference.
WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY AND PRAYER MEETING is held at 7:00 PM. Bring your Bible and your prayer requests for inspirational teaching by Pastor Bruce Moses. We are currently in the Gospel of John.
The AMERICAN BAPTIST WOMEN'S MISSION CIRCLE is part of the National Organization of American Baptist Women's Ministries.
