In today's world it is very hard to be still. We move at an ever increasing speed and often find ourselves stressed, exhausted, and worried about all of the things that need to be done. The last thing we believe we can do is be still.
Yet, God tells us to "be still . . . and know that I am God."
This Christmas season let's step out of the traffic. Slow down. Take a long look around . . . and find the hope, love, joy and peace we have been searching for.
Please join us at 9am or 10:45am every Sunday.
Sunday, December 1 - Hope (Luke 1:5-25)
Sunday, December 8 - Love (Luke 1:26-56)
Sunday, December 15 - Joy (Matthew 1:18-25)
One of the goals of the Riverside Leadership Team is to be transparent and open about our discernment and processes for addressing Riverside's future facility needs.
When we last gave you an update we mentioned that we had identified an existing facility that could potentially meet our current space needs and provide adequate room for future growth. Unfortunately, as we gathered more information about this property from the seller, the property's limitations and costs outweighed its benefits. We were ultimately unable to present it to you as a viable option.
