Kids Hope develops one-on-one relationships through the creation of church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk kids in supportive, mentoring relationships.
Kids Hope mentors spend just one hour per week, reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed.
At Riv, we take Jesus’ command to “go” and share His compassion with the world seriously. Most of the time, this takes place in everyday occurrences — over coffee with a friend, at our kids’ baseball games, or while trying to meet a deadline at work. But we also have the opportunity to share Jesus’ love with orphaned and abandoned children through a partnership with Back2Back Ministries.
Riverview has a rich history of planting churches. It is our desire to recapture that spirit in a way that reflects both what God has done through Riv historically and what we believe God is doing through us now. Because of our strategic location near Michigan’s capitol city of Lansing, we focus the majority of our efforts within our state.
