You may join River Road Presbyterian Church in one of the following ways:

1) If you are currently a member of another church, you may join by transfer of membership; or

2) If you have professed your faith before and joined a church, but it has been a while or there is no membership to transfer, you may join by reaffirmation of your faith in Jesus Christ; or

3) If you have never professed your faith in Jesus Christ and never joined a church, you may join by profession of faith in Jesus Christ.  If you have never been baptized, we will join with you in the celebration of your baptism into the family of God!
When Can I Join?
We welcome new members into the life of our church every Sunday morning. Our pastor and a group of elders meet prior to the 11:00 a.m. worship service for the purpose of welcoming you into our family. You may find them each and every Sunday in the Bride's Room.
Membership is open to anyone who professes faith in Jesus Christ as Savior, accepts his Lordship in all of life, and who desires to worship, grow and serve with us.  The Session (the governing body of elders and ministers of the church) receives new members upon their transfer of membership from another church, reaffirmation of faith, profession of faith, or profession of faith and baptism.
New and prospective member classes for adults are held regularly.  The Newcomers Class is designed especially for visitors, folks considering membership, and our newest members.  This class will give us an opportunity to be intentional about our life-long journey of faith.  These classes will include time for fellowship, faith-sharing, and lively discussions that will cover the following topics:

  • Knowledge of self and God
  • Knowledge of God in our lives
  • Knowledge of God in the life of the church
  • Knowledge of God in the world
During these gatherings, you will meet others new to River Road, many of our leaders, and our ministers.  We believe you will benefit from attending these classes and our ongoing quest for an enriching faith.  Please call or e-mail the church office at 804-740-7083 or  to sign up for these classes.  Childcare will be available if needed.
We are happy that you have been worshipping with us.  If you have any questions or would like more information, please the church office at 804-740-7083 or
