The Riverside Council oversees the activities of the church, the spiritual welfare of its members and provides assistance where needed. They meet once a month and council consists of six elders and four deacons. Elders by way of annual family visits connect with each member of the congregation. Deacons set up the offering schedule and are there to help all those in need.
The Riverside Praise Team is a mixed group that loves to sing and lead the congregation every Sunday morning in gathering songs. They form an integral part of our worship in not only leading our singing but also teaching new songs.
The Worship Committee oversees the planning of all special services throughout the Christian year, or any other service as requested by Council. This includes finding volunteers to help/participate in these special services. This committee at the beginning of each meeting, undertakes the study of worship through directed devotions or study material.
