At Riverside we're working hard to bring the ‘merry’ back in to your holidays!  We have special events all season long, including our free production of A Christmas Carol, Christmas Week services, and an opportunity for anyone interested to participate in a special Christmas Offering to bless our community.

A Christmas Carol

From "Bah Humbug!" to "Merry Christmas!" Experience Charles Dickens' classic 'A Christmas Carol' like never before. Much like Scrooge, the twists and turns of life often change us, sometimes turning us into someone we never intended to become. And maybe that's your story. But we don't have to stay where we are. Enjoy our Production this Christmas season either in person or online for a new look at a timeless favorite, featuring contemporary music and drama, and witness the story of transformed life.

Attending in person?  We're hosting our production five times over three days at our Big Lake campus; request your FREE (required) tickets using the link.
