“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you teach, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12
Youth at Riverdale Baptist Church include grades 8-12, with the exception of the Sunday School class which is grades 6-9.
During our Sunday morning worship service, youth are welcome to be part of the youth Sunday School class, to serve in one of the church’s ministries, or to remain in the service. About half way through the service, after the children’s special time, the youth are dismissed to the downstairs Youth Room for their Sunday School class to share and grow in faith together. The Sunday School class meets each week except for Communion Sundays – the first Sunday of each month – when youth are encouraged to remain in the service. 
YOUTH GROUP (grades 8-12)
Due to COVID-19 meeting restrictions, youth now meet via Zoom videoconferencing Friday nights from 7:30-9:30PM. They play a group game, have a devotional and small group discussions. To learn more, visit our “Riverdale Baptist Youth Group 2019/2020” Facebook page.
When youth were allowed to freely meet, Youth Group involved nights filled with fun including big community adventures, to low-key games nights in the church’s basement. Youth Group is a place where youth can have honest and open conversations about God and the Bible with caring leaders. We welcome youth of our church and community together in an accepting environment. We hope to love, have a ton of fun and dive into the Bible to find truths of who God is. We cannot wait to meet you at our next youth event!
