Couples Ministry BBQ Potluck

The Couples Ministry invite all married and engaged couples to a Barbecue Potluck on Saturday, June 3rd, 7:00 PM at Riverside's Fellowship Hall. We are requesting potluck items such as BBQ Chicken, Ribs, Burgers, Hot Dogs, Cole Slaw, Corn, Baked Beans, Potato Salad, etc. No desserts, please! For additional information call the church office.

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

 VBS is June 12th-16th, 9:00 AM - Noon, and is for children ages 4 (by September  1st, 2017) through completed 5th grade.

As Galactic Starveyors, kids will search the skies and God's Word to uncover God's truth etched in His handiwork. They will discover that the God who created everything there is--the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible--wants a relationship with them! And from the very beginning, God had a plan to restore the relationship He knew we would break. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our Savior and His Holy Spirit to be our Helper. From the very beginning to the furthest reaches of space (and beyond), nothing is outside God's control or beyond His grasp. God loves us and will never leave us.

Vacation Bible School Training: Saturday, June 3rd, 9:00 AM-Noon and Friday, June 9th, 7:00 PM.

During the week of Vacation Bible School, June 12-16th,  all regularly scheduled events are canceled.
