men's ministry

The Riverview Men's Ministry exists to facilitate the spiritual growth and development of our men as they serve Christ and make a positive impact for the Lord in the lives of others.  
Our Men of the Word, and Men's 33 meet every Thursday evening at 6:30pm.  We also have multiple small group Men's Studies that meet through out the week. We have two early morning groups that meet at Riverview as well as a Retired Men's group that meets weekly offsite.

Women's Ministry

The Women's Ministry offers various 7-10 week studies during the year that are offered in the morning and evening.  Studies will resume in the fall of 2024. Tasting Room offers two times a week to attend a group study. We have a Wednesday Morning at 9:30 am and an evening Group that meets on Thursdays at 6:30pm.  
The Coffee Break study provides women with the opportunity to investigate the Bible in a non-denominational, seeker-friendly, small group setting. There are 3 levels available.
Both Wednesday Morning studies offer FREE childcare.

Quilts are a tangible item that can bring comfort to people who have a special need or challenge in their lives. The idea of this ministry is to bring together those who love quilting to create quilts while praying for the folks who will be receiving them. The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday each month, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. They would love for you to join them! If you would like to request a quilt for someone, please contact Jeanette at the church office at 760-941-1430.

Refuge "12 Step" - The Twelve Steps are a set of biblical principles that outline a course of action for tackling problems such as drug and alcohol addiction, overeating, sex addiction, and more. As we work through the Twelve Steps, we find the path God has chosen and revealed in the Scriptures for the rescue and transformation of broken lives. We find hope and strength through walking with others, entrusting our lives to God, and   allowing Him to direct our decisions and plans. Meetings are Mondays @ 7:00 pm.
