Events at Riverside

“OPENING TO THE SPIRIT: CONVERSATIONS THAT MATTER” All those seeking to reflect, connect and deepen their spiritual roots are invited to participate in a new adult education series. Throughout May, we will gather from 9:00-10:10 a.m. on Sunday mornings in the Ruth Wells room. Together, we will practice the art of “generous and generative” conversation, relying on the passions, interests and concerns of those gathered to identify themes. Each week will feature different topics and hosts, so come when you can.   The coffee will be brewing and meaningful conversation awaits! Questions?  Talk with Pastor Vicky.


Riverside Men’s Group will gather again on Saturday, May 19, at the church, 9:00-10:30AM (coffee and delicious, nutritious gluten-free, sugar-free cookies, at 9:00), in the Ruth Wells Room. These gatherings are open to all and it’s a come-when-you-can group. We will be kicking around a contentious issue of your choice during this gathering. We will do so in a civil manner, as gentlemen, even if those who know us best seldom refer to us using that term. Questions? Contact Doug Roof (, 541-436-4112) or John Boonstra (, 541-505-6282).
