What to Expect


Our GATHERINGS

Whether you’ve attended church your whole life or have never been at all, visiting a church for the first time can be a

little intimidating. We want your experience at Riverside to be the best possible. 


Here is what you can expect on any given Sunday:


A Casual and Welcoming Atmosphere


Please relax and make yourself at home. Our hospitality team members will be glad to assist you with any of your questions or needs.


A Kid-Friendly Environment


Your kids, newborn through sixth grade, may take part in exciting activities in safe environments with dedicated caring leaders.


Singing


We love expressing ourselves to God through music. Our worship team hopes you will feel comfortable singing along or just enjoying the music and thinking about the words. You may see people clapping, raising their hands, kneeling or bowing their heads in quiet reflection. 


A Message


One of our communicators will share a clear message from the Bible that applies to your daily life. We hope you will be inspired, challenged and equipped to follow Jesus.


Times of Prayer


You may see people go to the front of the room to talk to God on their own or to pray with others. Feel free to participate.


An Opportunity To Respond


Please let us know of your visit by completing the tear-off Connection Card in the bulletin and drop it in the offering bucket. Feel free to introduce yourself to one of the pastors after the gathering.
