Some area pastors got together to discuss our nation and our needs; they discussed 2 Chronicles 7:14:
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
With this in mind, it was decided that every 2 weeks there should be a prayer meeting—alternating between meeting on Saturdays at 8 a.m. and Mondays at 6 p.m.—at the Veterans Park in Abingdon. At the first Prayer Meeting, there was nothing said except a reminder to social distance and wear masks if you are near anyone. Everyone went to pray alone, under trees, at picnic tables, in the pavilion, at the swings, everywhere. (Please check back later—in case there is a change in the schedule and for updates.)

This "new church" was originally built in 1895 and has recently been remodeled--it is a beautiful house of worship. The first service was Wednesday, August 7, 2019, with a combined Prayer Service of Greendale Chapel Church and Riverview Community Church. The first song was Victory in Jesus. On Wednesday, August 14th, Beulah Baptist will be at Riverview Community Church. Please continue to pray for our friends and their New community church.
UPDATE: Riverview Community Church has a pastor and will now be having services twice on Sundays and a service on Wednesday evenings! We pray that God blesses Riverview Community Church beyond measure with many souls getting saved and Christians encouraged in their walk with Christ.
