Pastoral Care Team and Support Groups

A Circle of Care

If you or someone you know is in need of care, please call the church office at (904)-355-4585 or email our Parish Associate, the Rev. Sunelle Stander Lays at [email protected]


The Deacon Ministry exists to surround both members and visitors with care during their time at Riverside. This begins with new member support, and continues throughout life's more difficult challenges. The focus of the ministry is service. Deacons are nominated and elected by the congregation. They are ordained and installed officers of the church.
