Events at Riverside

FASTING & FEASTING You are encouraged to engage in a time of both fasting and feasting during Lent. Together, we will seek to “fast” from actions or habits that distract, numb, or in other ways pull us from the life giving ways of God and “feast” upon practices or habits that draws us closer to God’s ways of compassion and justice. So that we might support and inspire one another, you are invited to share your “feastings” and “fastings” on the sapling sculpture in the back of the sanctuary.



LENTEN CROSS You are invited to bring your prayers & place them on the cross. They may be written (slips of paper in the front of the sanctuary) or in the form of a photo, newspaper clipping or other image.
