WHO WE ARE:  Riverside United Methodist Church is part of the Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.  We are a church of "Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors." To learn more about the Methodist Church, go to the United Methodist website, rethinkchurch.org

Riverside is located on Highway #71 North, Park Rapids, Minnesota, and was established in 1885.  In 1988, we moved to our current location which includes our beautiful Sanctuary, Fellowship Hall and Education wing.  In 2007 a Memorial Garden and Columbarium were added to the grounds.  We also have a picnic shelter and ball field available for use during appropriate weather conditions.

OUR VISION:  Here at Riverside UMC our vision is to "Cast the net of Christ's love to all through faith, action and compassion."  Our members are actively involved in ministry in our church, our community and around the world.  In addition to regular worship services on Sundays, there are many opportunities throughout the year to gather for special services, fellowship, education and fundraising. 

PASTORAL LEADERSHIP:  Pastor Scott Jakel leads the congregation in worship.  

HOW TO FIND US:  We're located at Highway 71 North (also 1005 Park Avenue North), Park Rapids, Minnesota. For driving directions, go to Mapquest.
