The creed and confession prepared by Dr. Luther for a possible council in Mantua, the Smalcald Articles represent a summary of the most important Lutheran doctrines. Written with the intent to bring a broken church back together the Smalcald Articles are a wonderful summary of the core of Lutheran teaching.

01/22/2021 Friday Women's Bible Study at 10am in Strickert Hall

The Friday morning Women’s Bible Study will begin a study on prayer beginning Friday, January 15, 2021, from 10:00 to 11:30 A.M.  We will be examining both the practical aspects and Biblical truths of prayer as we delve into scripture and God’s gift to us of the Lord’s Prayer.  While there is no one book or text we will use, it will be necessary for each person to bring her Bible to each class.  I am looking forward to this class and reuniting with former study friends but also invite those who wish to grow further in their prayer life.  God’s blessings on each of you.

01/20/2021 Wednesday Womens' Bible Study via Zoom at 7pm

Chocolate. Sweet. Rich. Satisfying. Can you imagine life without it? But what does it mean to live a chocolate life? It means experiencing everything from bitter nuggets of pain to sweet morsels of joy, from dark and lumpy to light and smooth. Whatever the shape, flavor, or texture of your days, you can live in the rich and endless supply of the grace that is ours because of Jesus. Are you ready for a treat? The eight chocolate-inspired lessons in this study focus on different aspects of life as a Christian woman, reminding you that you are wrapped in God’s love. Each lesson includes a recipe for a chocolate dessert, a Bible verse to memorize, chocolate fun facts, a suggested group activity, encouragement for life application, and a prayer. Please contact Theresa Frerking (678-793-2462) to sign up and get a book (cost $5). 

1/28/21 Senior Bible Class Resumes at 10:00am in Strickert Hall

This study group will meet on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. The first study will be on The Creeds and will begin  JANUARY 28th at 10:00 am. In order to allow plenty of space for required social distancing, the location will be Strickert Hall in building B. Don’t forget your mask. We are blessed to welcome recently retired Pastor Joe Lecke as the study leader. He and his wife, Karen, moved to Atlanta and joined the Rivercliff family last Fall. Mark your calendars for the 28th and plan to reconnect with friends, meet the Lecke’s, and dive into God’s word together!

Our Services

Traditional Worship Service

Our Traditional worship service is liturgical in nature, meaning that we follow an intentional and carefully planned arrangement for the service. In our case, this is typically drawn from The Lutheran Service Book. The music in our Traditional worship services encompasses traditional Lutheran hymns and is accompanied by an organ and, often, a choir.

Contemporary Worship Service

Our Contemporary worship service is similar in structure to the Traditional service but incorporates more contemporary music and a more relaxed atmosphere. There is no bulletin or hymnal used; rather, the spoken words and lyrics to the songs are projected on a screen at the front of the sanctuary.

Sacrament of Holy Communion

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is offered on alternate Sundays. On the first and third Sunday of the month, communion is offered at the early services, and it is offered at the late service on the second and fourth Sunday of each month. When there is a fifth Sunday in a month, we offer Holy Communion at BOTH services.
