In years past, River Road Church held a series of classes for new and prospective members that we titled Adult Orientation.  The idea behind the series was to help folks connect with this church family, in part by educating them about our church (history, ministries, structure, personnel, etc.) and also by identifying places of service and opportunities for growth in their discipleship.

If you are interested in attending, please call the Church Office (804-288-1131) or email Sheryl Johnson ( to make your reservation no later than Wednesday, January 29.  Should demand outpace our capacity, we will hold a second orientation in conjunction with the Deacons Dinner the first Monday of April.  When making your reservation, please indicate if childcare is needed so that we may plan accordingly.
