Bible Study

bible_study2 We are committed to the study of God's Word as a church family. Each week there is an opportunity for adults and children to learn more about the Bible and how to apply it to our daily lives.

Our focus is to not just learning facts about the Bible, but to understand and live out our faith each week. We believe that our lives should look different as Christians, and that we are committed to helping each other grow and develop.

We study God's Word with all age of the church family. We are committed to taking the Word and applying it to our daily lives whether we find ourselves in school, at work our out in the community.

Women's Ministries

abcwomen The women of the church have a weekly Bible study each Tuesday at 5:00 PM. We are meeting using zoom, and will continue to do so as we have many women who live out of the Portland area who join us. This group includes all ages of women and provides support and prayer for one another as well as the greater church family. The women also attend American Baptist Women's activities in the American Baptist of Oregon region. Here is the link for the Bible study…

Men's Group

abc men The men of the church have a weekly Bible study each Monday at 5:00 PM. The men enjoy great fellowship time as well as studying God's Word to grow stronger in their faith. We have men joining with us from across the country, so this group also meets utilizing zoom. The men also meet during the year for work projects around the church or in the local community. The men also have attended American Baptist Men's activities in the American Baptist of Oregon region. Here is the link for the Bible study…

Children's Ministries

arrahwanna We have been blessed with some wonderful children in our church family. It is our hope and desire that they will grow up with hearts tender to the things of the Lord, and knowing how much their Heavenly Father loves them. One of our commitments is to provide each child the opportunity to attend camp each year at Camp Arrah Wanna, which is the American Baptist camp in Welches, Oregon, on the slopes of Mt. Hood. As a small church we also look for other partnerships and opportunities that will enrich our children's lives and help them grow and develop.

Community Garden

community_garden We have enjoyed watching the garden grow literally and change through the years. It has spaces that includes some of our Habitat for Humanity families along with individuals from the community. They have collaborated on crops, cultivating and fertilizing, and sharing the bounty with seniors and others in the local community who aren't able to grow their own produce.

Habitat For Humanity – Rivergate Commons

habitat This project has been the driving force behind the renewal at Rivergate Community Church. Out of our desire to make our building handicapped accessible, we decided to sell part of our property to raise the funds to pay for the project. We decided to sell to Habitat for Humanity and now there are 12 families living at what is now called Rivergate Commons. It has been a wonderful project for our little church to be able to provide affordable housing on part of our property that we had owned for over 50 years. We believe that the founders of the church would be thrilled with how their desire to reach the local community is now happening through this project.

With our building now accessible for all we also are able to host many community groups. We have those who use it for different events. Habitat for Humanity has been able to hold outreach events in the building, and we have hosted and served meals for several of their celebrations.
