Make yourself at home, here at Pasco Riverview.

What to Expect
We invite you to join us for Bible study and worship any Saturday morning. Don't fel like you need to dress up, just wear whatever is most comfortable for you.
When you arrive at church on a Saturday morning, you might be greeted with a hearty, "Happy Sabbath!" That's a traditional Seventh-day Adventist greeting expressing our appreciation for your presence, and our gratitude for the sabbath rest this day contains.
Visiting on a Saturday Morning
Sabbath School Classes
Our Bible study time on Saturday morning begins at 9:30 AM and is called “Sabbath School.”
If you have a child, ask a greeter where the appropriate children’s class is meeting. Once you’ve dropped off your child, you can join the adults who gather for a few minutes in the sanctuary for the Sabbath School class there.
Most of our adult Sabbath School classes use a 13-week study guide published four times a year, called the Sabbath School Quarterly. If you don’t have your own copy of the quarterly, please tell the greeter or Sabbath School teacher and we’ll get you a complimentary copy.
Sabbath School ends at 10:30 AM, with a short break prior to the worship service at 10:45 AM. This is the time to go pick up your child, then make your way back to the sanctuary.
At our worship service, we sing, pray, and hear God’s word. Our music is typically hymns and praise choruses, accompanied by organ or piano. The sermon typically lasts 30 minutes or so, and we wrap up by 12:15 PM.
If you’d like to connect with someone for prayer or conversation, stick around after the service. Stay seated for a few minutes after the service and we'll have an "Ask the Pastor" time where you can ask the pastor any question about the Bible or the church or life in general. We do this every week except on Sabbath's when we have a fellowship lunch.
The first Sabbath of each month we have a fellowship lunch. You are invited, even if you can't bring a dish yourself. Our lunches feature delicious vegetarian food made by some of the best cooks in Pasco, Washington.
