Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get there?
We are located right on the gateway from the Carolina’s as you enter into Danville Virginia, Virginia’s first city on the North Carolina – Virginia border. Our address is 120 River Oak Blvd., Danville VA, 24541.
Where do I park?
We have convenient guest parking waiting for you directly in front of the main entrance and also near entrances on either side of the church and in the rear of the church.
What do I wear?
No matter what your personal style, you’ll be comfortable at RiverOak Church of God. If you prefer dressy, business, or casual attire, there will be others dressed much like you no matter when you visit. Sure, Sunday mornings are a time when many prefer to dress up a bit, but even if jeans are more your style, you’ll be right at home and warmly welcomed with us. Naturally, Wednesday evenings are more casual than Sunday morning, but dress up for these if you prefer.

Preschoolers and children learn while they play. We encourage hands on play so that children are learning through all their senses. Painting and other “messy” activities are also encouraged, so use your own judgment about how dressed up your child is while at church.

Our Middle and High School students usually dress casually on Wednesday evenings because games and sporting events are often held and sometimes involve getting messy.

Where do my kids go?
We have children’s ministry for newborns through 5th grade on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. We also have Youth Ministry for 6th through 12th grade on Wednesday Nights.

Children newborn through 3 years old begin in their classrooms, while 4 year olds through 5th grade are taken to the RiverOak Kids located in the gymnasium. If you prefer to keep your children in the adult worship service with you until you feel more comfortable, please feel free to do so. For more information about our children’s ministries, please visit our page.

Can I meet the pastor and staff?

Absolutely! They love to meet new people! Before and after Sunday and Wednesday services they regularly greet our guests. In fact, they have a special gift waiting just for you at the Welcome Center. So please go by after service, turn in your guest registration, pick up your gift, and meet the pastor and others. If the pastor and staff are ministering in the altars, please know you are important to them and they’d love to meet and visit with you, so please contact the office to schedule a possible meal with them.

How do I meet other new people?

We believe God has led you to RiverOak Church of God and we will be so excited and honored to meet you. There are several great ways to meet new people.

First, we encourage those who are new to RiverOak Church of God to attend the Discipleship Groups on Sunday mornings at 10am. This will give you and your family an opportunity to connect with the church family very quickly. You will meet new people, and receive information about the church, our vision, our history, our leaders, ministry opportunities, and when our small group social times are.

Secondly, our Wednesday “Family Night” is a great time to interact with the church family outside the 10:30am worship celebration, and in a much smaller intimate format. There is also Sunday School and Small Groups at 9:30am.
