WHAT TO EXPECT
We know that coming to a new church for the first time can be intimidating. When you first walk through the doors of Riverside Church we want you to feel at ease and comfortable. You'll be greeted warmly by one of our Ushers or a member of our Hospitality team. They can help you find a seat and answer any questions you may have. Join us after service for a cup of coffee on us!
Riverside Kids join us for worship each Sunday. Before we dismiss them to their classrooms, they are prayed for. A member of our Kids team will meet them in the hallway and will ensure they get to their classrooms upstairs safely.
We have age-specific lessons to ensure that your child has fun as they learn about Jesus. Our Riverside Kids team is committed to providing an environment that is safe, clean, and fun for your children while you enjoy the service.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
We truly believe in the phrase "come as you are". You'll see all kinds of attire on a typical Sunday morning, from jeans and sneakers, to suits and ties. What you wear is really not important to us. All that matters is that you're there!
YOUR FIRST VISIT
Riverside is a multicultural, diverse body of believers. Every one is welcomed!
Upon entering the building, you'll be greeted by a member of our Ushers team or Hospitality team who will be there to assist you in getting around and answering any questions you may have.
Our worship service typically lasts 30 minutes and is then followed by a brief time where we greet and welcome one another. Announcements are made and offering is taken. The message will be delivered by our Pastor and lasts about 30 minutes.
WILL YOU ASK FOR MONEY?
Never. While we do have a time for receiving tithes and offerings, giving is a personal matter. If it's your first time visiting, please do not feel obligated to give in any way.
However, if you'd like to give no one will stop you. Your generosity helps us to take care of our building and serve the community in big and small ways.
WHERE DO I PARK?
We have a parking lot right next to the church where you can feel free to park. If however there is no space in the lot, you should be able to find street parking directly on 3rd Street or any of the surrounding streets.
We ask that you pay careful attention to any signs posted in regards to street parking.
IS THERE SOMETHING FOR MY KIDS?
Yes! On Sunday mornings, we have a nursery room for children ages 18 months to 3 years old We also have a kids service for ages 4-10 years old. Each week, our kids learn about God in an age specific environment that is both safe and fun.
