Riverside Announcements:

Steve Best of MissioServe Presenting Ministry at Riverside

Today, Steve Best, Executive Director of MissioServe (formerly, Bible Basic International, website: https://missioserve.org), will preach during our worship service and present the MissioServe ministry which seeks to “extend the worship of God by serving the senders and the sent, mobilizing workers with the Word, and advancing the Gospel to the unreached and unengaged.”

Foundations of Membership Class, April 23rd 

For those interested in learning more about membership at Riverside Baptist Church, there will be a Foundations of Membership Class on Friday, April 23rd from 6:45 pm – 9 pm. Currently, we have three couples signed up to attend. Please contact Pastor Joe Earle if you are interested in attending.

Members’ Meeting: Sunday, April 25th

We will have a Members’ Meeting on Sunday, April 25th following the worship service. A meal will be provided (more details to come).

One VERY IMPORTANT agenda item will be the vote to affirm Drew Regan as our next elder. Drew answered many questions at the recent Q&A night, but if there are additional questions to ask him (or any concerns you’d like to address to Drew or the other elders) please do so ahead of this meeting.


Please continue to prayerfully give to Riverside through our ONLINE GIVING LINK (please select “ACH Bank Transfer”), through our offering box (back of auditorium), or by mailing your offerings to the church: 6219 River Road New Port Richey, FL 34652.

As always, we trust God to continue to provide for the needs of our congregation.

Today’s Worship

Call to Worship: Psalm 8:1-9
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. 2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. 3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? 5    Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, 7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, 8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Worship in Song:
How Great Thou Art
Saved My Soul

Corporate Confession & Gospel Affirmation: Psalm 6:2-4
Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing; heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled. 3 My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O LORD—how long? 4 Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.

Worship in Song:
O Lord, My Rock and My Redeemer
All to Us (I Surrender All)

Pastoral Prayer

Worship in Song:
Have Thine Own Way, Lord

Worship with the Word: Ephesians 3:7-13
Sermon Title: “One New Man for One Eternal Purpose”

(See Text and Notes Below)

Worship in Song:
I Will Follow

Benediction: 2 Thessalonians 3:16
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.

Passage: Ephesians 3:7-13

Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s grace, which was given me by the working of his power. 8 To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9 and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things, 10 so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. 11 This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him. 13 So I ask you not to lose heart over what I am suffering for you, which is your glory.
