Together we serve the community, by the power of the Holy Spirit, ministering to families and individuals the lost and the found for the Glory of God.
“What is the greatest commandment?” Jesus summed up the commandments into two main categories: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and love your neighbor as yourself. At Riverside Community Church our goal is to obey Jesus’ command to love God and love others.
We express our love to God through our weekly worship service and prayer service. We come together as a community of faith to sing and tell the praises of our God and Savior. We cry out to him in prayer, assured that he listens and responds to the cry of his people. We stop to listen and hear from God as we study his Word, which comes to us via the scriptures.
When we come together as the church of Jesus Christ our goal is to:
Celebrate God through enthusiastic God-pleasing contemporary worship.
Relate to one another in compassionate love.
Cultivate our God given gifts for ministry and service to the community.
Communicate Christ and the good news forgiveness and grace to our culture and the world.
Demonstrate a practical concern for the community through service, ministry and compassion.
Educate people in the truth and word of God.
The mission of our Children’s Ministry is to give children a solid biblical education so that they can apply the Word of God to their lives (at school, in their homes, on their teams) and grow in relationship with Christ. We seek to equip and disciple students so that they can use the Word on their own and continue to grow in faith into their adult life.
Nursery and Toddlers
Childcare is available for these age groups at the 10:30 AM Worship Service.
In addition to nursery care, the Children’s Church offers a program of worship and Bible teaching for children ages 1st through 6th grade. Periodically the children also provide special music during the worship service.
This ministry exists to introduce teenagers to Christ, to help them increase in their knowledge of the Christian faith, to help them invest in a deeper relationship with one another and with God and to develop their abilities to have a greater impact in the world by living their faith out loud. It is our prayer that we can provide them with the tools to help them meet today¹s challenges of being a teenager and an adult.
We believe that God hears our prayers and answers with power. The effectiveness of any church is based on the prayers of God’s people. We have numerous opportunities to pray during the week but we come together corporately on Wednesday evenings to cry out to God, lift up prayer requests and intercede for our community and families.
Small groups meet during the week in homes or at the church for the purpose of Bible study, worship and fellowship. Our goal is to help all people, both the spiritually lost and the believer, build a close relationship with Christ through the process of Friendship—demonstrating Christ through relationships with each other; Discipleship—building a relationship with Jesus Christ by mentoring, teaching and study; Worship—growing spiritually through corporate time as the body of Christ; and Prayer – growing in faith as we approach the throne of grace in confidence and experiencing God’s response.
Our Small Groups meet several days of the week in various locations. For more information see our church bulletin or contact the church office.
