Our Church

Welcome to Patterson SDA Church

Patterson Avenue SDA Church is a warm, family-oriented, multi-ethnic congregation of approximately 250 members. PASDA is part of the worldwide church of Seventh-day Adventists, a Protestant Christian denomination with over 19 million baptized members. Seventh-day Adventist Christians are joyful because we believe we are saved from the penalty of sin by the grace of Jesus Christ.

We seek to show our love and gratitude to God by the way we live, in accordance with Bible teachings. This is a lifelong process of growing in our relationship with Jesus.

We seek to nurture this relationship with Jesus Christ through personal and congregational worship, Bible study, prayer, and service to our community and beyond.

To this end, PASDA supports a Health Ministry and a Women’s Ministry that provides quarterly healthy cooking classes, an annual 5K walk/run-a-thon, blood drives and other healthy, happy family activities. We also support Richmond Academy, a local Seventh-day Adventist Pre-K to 12th grade school that provides a top quality, accredited education in a wholesome Christian atmosphere.

Our worship service is on Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m. followed by Bible Study at 11:30. Bible study classes are provided for all ages. A free, vegetarian potluck lunch often follows our Bible Study time.

If you are looking for a new church family, we invite you to come worship and serve with us. We are looking forward to meeting you.
