Revival at Riverside: Rev. Leah D. Jackson, ESQ

August 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This summer, Riverside is going into revival! For four Sundays, in the spirit of old-time church revivals, we will feature guest preachers and special music during our morning worship services.

Revivals are a time for the church to gather in worship, be refreshed, restored, renewed, and revived. They offer encouragement and spiritual strength, enabling us to engage in ministry with fresh eyes and new energy.
