How We Do Church


We're glad you're here!

The roots of Riverside Church extend all the way back to the early 1930's when a C&MA pastor came to the area with a dream to plant a church and reach people for Jesus. From the founding families of that time, to the church family we celebrate today, Riverside began as, and continues to be, a place where searching and hurting people discover there is a God who loves them and can change their life.

Every week people are impacted by that truth - families are being strengthened, relationships are being restored, and transformation takes place as each of us live out Riverside's core values of Experiencing Grace, Growing in Love, and Giving of Ourselves.

It's all about relationship; most importantly with Christ, but also in community with others. We are passionate about three key ideas: providing teaching, music and environments which are REAL and RELEVANT to our people and our culture, helping people experience LIFE CHANGE, and giving people the opportunity to take OWNERSHIP of their faith.

If you're just getting to know us, or you've been here awhile and are ready to take your next step to get involved, you're part of something significant. This is an exciting time in your life and in the life of this church.

Because of Jesus, Pastor Tom Lundeen

EXPERIENCE GRACE FROM GOD & OTHERS

Come Every Sunday

Creating environments for you to receive, live & share God's grace.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."  EPHESIANS 2:8-10

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from  yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."  Ephesians 2:8-10

Saying "YES!" to Jesus can change your life forever, and God welcomes us to ask questions and discover for ourselves His plan to bring us back into relationship with Him through His Son. Trusting Him to lead and direct your life is the most important decision you will ever make!
