Member Outreach


ROC Encouragement

If you are a part of our River Oak Family, we want to serve your family and show the love to Christ in practical ways! 

  • Hospital Visits
    Our ministry leaders love to care for you and your loved ones by ministering through home, hospital and funeral visits. If you or someone in your family would like to request a visit, please contact Bill & Ebbie Bickford at Bill.Bickford@riveroakchurch.org.

  • Serving Spoons
    Serving Spoons is a care and outreach ministry that serves our families by providing meals during times of need. If you know of someone who attends ROC that could be ministered to in this way, please email info@riveroakchurch.org.

  • Member Care
    Our Lord warned that this world would often be hard and full of tribulations (Matt. 16:33). During these times of trials, we often feel lost, discouraged, or even weak and helpless. The Living Lord has called his church to graciously walk beside those experiencing such struggles, correcting, encouraging, and helping our brothers and sisters with all humility and patience (1 Thess. 5:14). The goal of our member encouragement ministry is to know and love others well; to become a community characterized by God’s grace. For more information, contact team coach, Floyd Powell at floyd.powell@riveroakchurch.org.

  • Vessels of Hope
    Vessels of Hope is a ministry made up of cancer survivors, caregivers, and those with a heart to serve cancer patients. If you or a loved one is currently battling cancer, we would love to encourage you through prayer, sending cards, and providing meals when needed. We hope to make your journey easier. This group meets the 1st Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm at River Oak Church. For more info, please contact Colleen Magness at vesselsofhope@riveroakchurch.org.

  • Military Ministry 
    With the strong military presence in the Hampton Roads area, it is our desire to ensure we are a welcoming church for active duty, reservist, veterans and retired military personnel and families. This ministry primarily focuses on Life Groups, prayer groups, and events and always offers support to families with deployed spouses. For more information, please contact Steve and Lynn Reeder at steve.reeder@riveroakchurch.org.
