Welcome to Riverside Covenant Church

Riverside Covenant Church is a community of people dedicated to becoming more like Jesus, sharing life together, and transforming the world. We believe that God is working in us, among us, and through us . . . and we want you to join us on our journey.

We then worship together at 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. each Sunday at 1850 Woodland Avenue, West Lafayette, Indiana 47906. The church is visible from the intersection of Salisbury and Lindberg.

Are You New?

I am glad you found our website and hope you are discovering more about us. We are diverse people at various stages in our spiritual journeys who are working together to love God, to love each other, and to love Tippecanoe County and beyond. If you are considering attending our Sunday worship service, I am confident that you will find friendly and authentic people, biblical teaching, and good coffee.

Our goal is to partner with God in planting seeds of faith, cultivating disciples of Jesus Christ, and producing life transformation and community change. Join us as we journey together.

Hosting International Students

We have the unique opportunity in a town like West Lafayette, with a University like Purdue, to host incoming international students in our homes for a few days before the Fall semester starts. Imagine moving to a new place without knowing anyone, without speaking the language as your first language, without knowing the culture you are entering. This is what international students face, especially if they haven’t located a place to live yet. If you are interested in helping an international student by giving them a bed to sleep in, some meals, and helping them learn the town, showing them around to grocery shop or setting up a bank account, please contact Rick Whitlock ([email protected]) and he will answer your questions and connect you with a student or two.

Welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God (Romans 15:7).

Multigenerational Worship

Riverside is committed to not simply being a church made up of multiple generations, but to being a community where multiple generations grow closer to Jesus together.  We want to create opportunities in our life together for the generations to learn and worship in community with one another.  We believe this was God's plan for the church and it is the most effective way to make disciples of Jesus whose faith "sticks."

In the past we have separated our children and youth from our adult congregation on Sundays, but we would now like to give our kids the opportunity to occasionally (a few times a year) worship with their family and other adults instead of being in Promiseland.  We remain very committed to age-appropriate Christian formation through Promiseland, but these occasional multigenerational worship opportunities will also give the kids of our congregation the opportunity to participate with us as we worship in song, prayer, scripture reading, and listening to the message. We believe it is not only important for our kids to see adults model these parts of Sunday morning worship but also for our children to learn to participate along side of adults. The hope is that our kids will gradually grow to want to celebrate and glorify God through worship, thus staying involved as they leave their homes to be on their own as adults.  We also hope that adults will learn from the process of worshiping alongside kids and exploring what it means to "receive the kingdom of God like a child."
