This is what you can expect at First Riverview

First off, welcome home.

We're a contemporary baptist church in Riverview, FL with a heart for Christ. Regardless of where you've been or where you are, we want you to feel known and valued at First Baptist Riverview. You can expect to find people who love Christ, and live out the Gospel in their actions and words. You can also expect to find an authentic community, where we're honest about brokenness and sin and how the transforming power of the Gospel sets us free from brokenness. Whether you've recently come to faith, have been a Christian since you were a kid, or have never had an encounter with Christ, we want you to feel welcome at First Riverview. Below are a few FAQ's and some specifics related to visiting our church, but be sure to check out the rest of our website for more information.

Frequently asked questions:

Where do I go?

We're located on 301 in Riverview, FL (8626 US Highway 301 South, to be specific). When you pull into our parking lot, you'll find some spaces reserved for guests, right up near the front. Feel free to park in those! The main worship center is toward the front left of the parking lot. It's the big, white building with glass, storefront windows (don't worry, it's not easy to miss). Head that way, and our greeters will welcome you.
Pro tip: don't forget to grab a free cup of coffee on your way in!

How do I dress?

Don't worry, we don't have a dress code. We care about you, not what you're wearing. In fact, our pastors usually wear jeans or casual pants, so don't worry about being underdressed. Whether you're in shorts, jeans or business casual, you'll feel comfortable.

What is worship like?

Our worship services start at 9:30 and 11:00AM. We start with dynamic worship (led by our contemporary worship band), then engage with God's Word through a message from Pastor Keith, and end with a closing song. Then, head out to the atrium to meet a few people, pick up your kids, and maybe even go to lunch! Most LifeGroups meet at 9:30AM and go to worship at 11:00AM, but we have options for both hours.

Where do my kids go?

We have activities for your kids, from infants-5th grade! Check out KidsView in detail here, but here's the gist of it. PreView (infants-4K) offers LifeGroups and childcare at 9:30 and 11:00AM. Kid's LifeGroups meet at 9:30AM in our education building, and KidsView Worship starts at 11:00AM. Your child will need to be registered in our security system before being dropped off, so head to the KidsView desk when you arrive (front-left corner of the worship center atrium) to get them checked in.

Where do my teenagers go?

We have a great student ministry (6th-12th grade) at First Riverview! InView Student Ministry meets for LifeGroups on the third floor of our education building at 9:30AM. Talk to one of our greeters in the worship center, and they'll show you where to go.
