Riverside's Youth Ministry
Since meeting in the fall of 2016, Riverside Youth Group is committed to making an
impact on teenagers in Lynchburg through serving and engaging through the love of God (1
John 4:7). We follow the encouraging example of young Timothy as he was willing to proclaim
the Word of God despite others looking down on him in his young age. We are called to be a
light and example for others to follow despite our age, background, or difference we may have
(1 Timothy 4:12).
Riverside youth group meets every Wednesday night from 7-8:45 p.m. at our ‘Meeting
Place’ in Wyndhurst (105B Tradewynd Dr. Lynchburg, VA 24502). During that time, we will
enjoy snacks, play fun group games, spend time studying God’s Word and growing closer to
Him together as a group, and reflect on it with a little bit of time at the end with small groups. If
you are interested in getting more information about our youth ministry, feel free to connect
with us on social media (Facebook: Riverside Youth Group and Instagram: @riversidelyhyouth).
If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to email the leader of our youth
ministries, Caleb Simpson, via email @email@example.com
Riverside Discipleship Ministry
We offer a thoughtful approach for considering the truths of God’s Word, which is our source for walking with the Lord, and then walking out these truths in community as we connect and serve together. We want you to find a place to consider the Word of God, which is your source, and a place to connect with others in order to serve.
Being intentional about the depth and breadth of our lives and encouraging others to embrace this priority is the hallmark of our community. Spending time together with the purpose of considering the Word of God and related topical studies, and taking time to connect in small groups, building friendships and serving one another is the centerpiece of Riverside Discipleship.
Opportunities for discipleship are provided through FOCUS Groups and LIFE Groups throughout the week.
FOCUS Study Groups
The Purpose of our FOCUS Studies is to teach the Word of God in a clear, understandable and livable way through our children, student, college and adult groups. We accomplish this through short term directive studies as we use other teaching tools to thoroughly explore the in depth knowledge of living the Christian life.
Consider the Word of God
Consider: to fix the mind on with a view to a careful examination; to think on with care; to ponder; to study
The purpose of our Bible Study is to view attentively the Word of God.
FOCUS Groups offer Biblical unit studies, topical, and personal discipleship training.

Our LIFE groups meet on an ongoing basis throughout the week and give us an opportunity to connect and build relationships.
