Gathering during COVID

Creating new spaces for ways to connect

During this time of social distancing, we are staying connected to one another through Zoom Sunday School, hosting FUN & SAFE events and going small with Sonrise.

Sunday School is for elementary age students and their parents. It is a 30 minute time that lets Sunday School teachers and students connect over a bible story. We would love for you to join us and we have set it up to be easily accessible while safely monitored. If you would like to join us for Sunday school email us.

We like to have fun! Recently we hosted a Photo Scavenger Hunt for our families and their friends. We met in our parking lot and provided a list of items to photograph with a couple prizes at the end! The competition was real, the kids had a great time and it was socially distant and safe.



Children and Families growing in faith

Normally this time of year we would be in full swing preparing for Sonrise Camp. If you aren’t familar with Sonrise, it is our free Bible camp for Pre-K through 5th grade and it is BIG! Like 300 campers and 200 volunteers BIG!  Since we can’t be together this year in such a large setting, we have decided to go small with Backyard Sonrise and for parents who want to just host Sonrise for their own families, we have Sonrise Home Kits.

We know during this time of COVID, Children need ways to have some fun and something familar. Backyard Sonrise allows two of Riverside’s team to be in a Riverside Family’s backyard and host Sonrise for 5 to 7 kids. We currently have 10 Families/56 kids participating.

For those not ready to meet with others, you can have a Sonrise Home Kit. We have 20 families participating/51 kids taking these on vacation and road trips. They come with all the items you need

While we can’t be together all at one time for Sonrise, it is still wonderful to share Sonrise with our families!  Email us if you have questions?
