How We Come Together
We meet in-person in the Riverside sanctuary for morning worship, each Sunday at 10:30. Directly after service, we gather for coffee and connection in the Riverview Room. We welcome you to join us!
Hospitality Teams In Action!
We thank all those who help provide hospitality after worship and special thanks to those who serve as hospitality team captains. With many hands, the load is lightened.
With a team captain approach, many people are able to share and help out each month. Our hope is that each active participant can support the life of Riverside and assist with hospitality on one or two Sundays each year.
Lost track of which team you belong to? Here is a link to the complete hospitality list. Hospitality Teams 2023 And if you don’t see your name and would like to help, please the church office at 541.386.1412.

Meet New Friends
Read, quilt, gather and talk: Riversiders come together to build and serve community and each other. Here are a few ways you can join in:
Art and Spirit Circle
Art and Spirit Circle: When we can meet together, we create art, such as family altars, crowns, mandalas. Like so many things at Riverside, no experience required! For more information on upcoming Art and Spirit Circles (when we can circle together again) contact Karen Harding.
Our book group meets once a month to discuss a book. Currently, the group is meeting via Zoom and in person, at the same time, so that those who can’t meet in person, and those who want to meet in person, can all meet together. Contact Karen Roof to learn what’s on everyone’s nightstand this month, and when the group meets next for discussion.
One Saturday morning a month Riverside men get together to figure out what it all means.
Hilarity often ensues, as does the “word of the month” and reflections on life.
Usually, they destroy a coffee cake or a box of donuts and regularly meets once a month in the Riverview Room.
Contact Doug Roof for information about the next meeting.
Prayer shawl group
It’s a comfort to draw a warm crocheted or knitted blanket around the shoulders of someone grieving, or a new mother. Join this group to help create shawls to be given as gifts by Pastor Vicky. To learn more, contact Nancy Pavlenko.
We have a Riverside tradition of creating a personalized quilt for each graduating high school senior.
Sewers are needed, but so are those who can simply iron and organize quilt pieces.
