A Movement for Reconciliation: Connecting with Community


Sunday, August 26

Riverside Presbyterian Church is excited to begin a new program year. Rally Day is full of activities to help us kick this year off. This fall much of our programming and ministry will be centered around our church's mission of reconciliation with a focus on our own community and neighborhood. We will participate in projects that reach out to our neighbors; have a viewing of the new Mr. Rogers documentary, Won't You Be My Neighbor; invite neighbors to speak such as police, business and non-profit leaders, principals at our neighborhood schools, and much more.

This service will include the wonderful music of Lisa Kelly/JB Scott Jazz Sextet who will perform inspirational jazz interpretations of well-loved religious songs. They will welcome us with a heartfelt musical invitation and send us out feeling uplifted.


11:00 am-Noon     Potluck Lunch

Join us for a church-wide potluck lunch and great fellowship. We will continue to learn about ways to recommit ourselves to the mission and ministry of the church.
