At Riverside we strive to REVERE God through a life of worship, CONNECT with others in authentic caring community, and CONTRIBUTE to the needs around us both near and far. We believe that when we follow Jesus, we will live at the intersection of these three core values.


We revere God as we gather together weekly in larger environments to celebrate all He is doing in our lives personally and in our church family corporately. We sing, pray and study the Bible together. We listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying, and we apply what we learn.


We want you to feel at home, have a place where you can find support, encouragement, and fellowship, and be able to develop significant relationships. That’s why we have developed groups that will help you connect with others to build meaningful relationships and grow together in an atmosphere which promotes interaction with others, God’s Word, and His Spirit. Find Connect Groups linked above.


God has shaped and equipped you to serve Him, and we want you to have the opportunity to contribute to the needs of others. That’s why we offer groups that will help you use your time, talents and treasure to invest in the ministries and outreaches that will help to bless children, students, young adults and adults throughout our communities. These groups focus on ways you can serve and add value to others. Find Contribute Groups linked above.
