Many of us have a deep sense that the world is not as it should be and most of us ache for a better world. The Good News is that Jesus came to restore the world and everything in it. One of the ways that Riverside proclaims this Good News of Jesus is by partnering with God to restore our community to the way God intended it to be. We go where brokenness is and work to restore our community spiritually, emotionally, physically, economically, and socially.
Our Community Outreach Ministry is how we work together to be the hands and feet of Jesus in Tippecanoe County.
Riverside currently partners with Lafayette Transitional Housing Center, Family Promise, Lafayette Urban Ministry, Oakland High School, Jefferson High School, International Friendship Program, and many other Tippecanoe organizations to meet our community’s needs. We serve meals, collect and distribute food, help house homeless, give away Christmas gifts, mentor, teach job skills, host international students and generally meet needs as they arise. Riverside also has a benevolence fund that provides for the immediate financial needs of Riverside attendees and others within our local community.
