Events at Riverside


E-Bike raffle tickets will be available now! Drawing for the winner will be held July 15. Tickets are $10.00 for one, or 11 tickets for $100.

Here is your chance to help the church raise money for its social justice and outreach programs and to win a really cool electric bike. The E-bike was graciously donated to the church, is brand-new, and retails for around $2,000. See Donna McCoy or Kim Vogel in the Pioneer Room during coffee time after service.
