Kids are important to Jesus and they’re important to us here at Riverside too. “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.’” (Matt. 19:14). Our desire is to help kids learn the Word of God and have fun doing so.
With this in mind we have Kids Church during our 10 am & 11:30 am Sunday services where kids gather for worship together and then split off into Sunday school classes by age groups. If you are a new family planning to visit Calvary Kids, please complete this form beforehand to save time at check-in.
Classrooms available at the 10 am service:
- Nursery for ages 0-2
- Pre-K (age 3) – Kindergarten
- Grade 1-2
- Grade 3-5
Classrooms available at the 11:30 am service:
- Nursery for ages 0-2
- Kid’s Church (Pre-K (age 3) – Grade 5)

We at Riverside know that hard times come, and we want to do our best at helping in those times. Our Food Pantry Ministry allows anyone to donate items so people can take what they need when they need it. The pantry is located in the Foyer of the Sanctuary building. If you would like to donate non-perishable foods and/or toiletry items feel free to put them on the shelf. If you are in need of items feel free to stop by the pantry on Sunday during our services, or during office hours on weekdays.
We at Riverside want to be there for people who are needing assistance. We have an annual budget in place to help with those financially in need. If you are in need of assistance, please fill out our Benevolence Form at this link.
