Parish Care

We aim to create beloved community by providing our members and community with opportunities for fellowship, pastoral care for every step of life’s journey, and social services for those in crisis.

We offer many opportunities for fellowship in large and small group settings, including study groups, special programs for persons 65+, spiritual retreats, and a variety of support groups. We also provide pastoral care, spiritual guidance, funerals and other services.

Office Hours & Pastoral Care

The Parish Care Ministry has designated hours for any member who may need or wish to meet for pastoral counseling. In addition, there are upcoming events/activities specifically designed to promote healing during these days of challenge and uncertainty. These activities are important to our physical, emotional, and spiritual health, and we would love as many Riverside members as possible to attend. If there is an activity you have a particular interest in and it does not fit within your schedule, please contact the Parish Care office and we will attempt to make additional arrangements.

Clergy on Call

Pastoral Care is pleased to offer Clergy on Call when there is a life event or crisis which creates a need for pastoral care outside of regular office hours. Congregants may reach Clergy on Call by calling 212.870.6712, and a member of the clergy will respond as soon as possible.

Clergy on Call is specifically designated for Riverside members experiencing an emergency such as illness, death, accident, or hospitalization, as well as those who urgently require prayer. Please be aware that financial assistance and other social service related calls will not be responded to by Clergy on Call.

For pastoral emergencies during regular office hours, you may contact the Parish Care office at 212.870.6963.
