Small group meetings are found in the Methodist tradition as a way of extending the community of faith.  During fall and the Lenten season, Riverside offers the opportunity to participate in a four-week session with your friends, neighbors and fellow Riverside members.  The purpose of the series is to:
  • Connect with others
  • Learn the strength and comfort that comes from a burden shared and a joy celebrated
  • Grow spiritually in the grace, knowledge and love of Christ
