Things to Come…….

Riverside Presbyterian Mother’s Group

In September, Riverside Presbyterian Church will form a Facebook Mother’s Group. This group will be an informal place to share information and encouragement with each other. The Director of Education will also share parenting thoughts, tips and articles. It will hopefully also be a place to share information about fun activities for children and parents.


Junior Church

Sundays in worship after Faith Sharing with Children

Junior Church is a new worship service for kids that will begin later this fall. Each week during the 11 am worship service, children ages K-3rd grade will be released from worship after Faith Sharing with Children. Children will meet in the sanctuary basement where they will have an age appropriate worship service and learn about different aspects of worship.
