As a Para-Church ministry we are free to visit and worship in many traditional churches on Sunday. This morning several of us gathered up and headed to River Oak Church, in Chesapeake, VA. For those local to our ministry out of Moyock, NC, – River Oak is the large church on the right heading south on the Chesapeake Expressway (168). River Oak is currently building Phase Four of their expansive facility.
We attended the 9:30am service, but you can also attend the 8:00am or 11:15am service. If none of those work for you they have a 6:00pm service on Saturday evenings.
We arrived 15 minutes early and seats were already filling up. We were greeted with fresh coffee, and pastries and then headed to our seats. There were very few empty seats at the 9:30 service with hundreds in attendance. The new Phase Four Worship Center will seat over 1,200 per service.
Lead Pastor Heath Burris followed the worship music which was absolutely joyous to the Lord. Pastor Heath delivered a message that was Biblically sound and captivating. I have no doubt we will be back.
