As you begin (or renew) your spiritual quest, our Riverside family wants to support you in your journey. The first step is to get to KNOW God. We want to know what He is really like - His character of love, His thoughts about us, and His plan for our lives. God is most clearly revealed to us through Jesus Christ, and we can see Jesus best through Bible study. By spending time in daily Bible study and prayer, we intentionally pursue a relationship with Jesus, where we learn about His plan of salvation, His principles, and His promises. Joining a KNOW class will help you to develop this daily habit, lead you to KNOW God, and prepare you to GROW in God.
Second, as we come to KNOW God, we want to GROW in God. At Riverside we believe that people grow best in relationships with one another. In Christian community we receive spiritual support and are accountable to each other as we apply God’s Word to our lives. We invite you to connect with a small group which will serve as your spiritual family, enabling you to enjoy the benefits of Christian fellowship, help you to GROW in God, and prepare you to SOW God's love to those you meet.
Finally, what starts on the inside can't help but shine through the outside. As we come to KNOW God, and GROW in GOD, there is a natural desire to want to share - or SOW - God's love to others. Every day we come in contact with people who need to be touched and transformed by the love of God. We become ministry partners with God in His mission to reach the world as we SOW God's Love through Planned Acts of Christian Kindness.
