What's Happening

June Lunch & Learn


Thursday, June 15, 2017; 11 am-2 pm

Cost: $10; Lunch included. Limited to 14

The mission of Rethreaded is to unravel the effects of the sex trade by fighting business with business on a global and local level. They provide safe, viable and dignity-giving work to survivors of the sex trade allowing them to be who they were created to be. We will hear a survivor share a story of hope and empowerment. Lunch is followed with an exclusive tour of the warehouse and full Rethreaded shopping experience.

RBI - Returning Baseball to the Inner City

Registrations for Returning Baseball to the Inner City are now being accepted. This is a long standing program for Riverside area children between 8-13 years of age.

Registrations are available in the church office, or register on line for this FREE sandlot style baseball camp, that even includes lunch!

1. Recruit volunteers for the many jobs needed!
