Be Aware of Scam Text Messages

Riverside Baptist Church is aware someone claiming to be from our church is attempting to scam people. We have received a report of someone calling themselves “Pastor Tom” from Riverside Baptist Church sending out text messages telling people they had been selected to receive $2,000 from the “Riverside Baptist Church disaster/pandemic relief support.” All they asked was to send their bank details.

This is not related to any activities of this church. Be aware that Riverside Baptist Church will NEVER ask for your bank account details.

Service for Robert Nelson is Wednesday

Robert Henry Nelson

Please join the Riverside Baptist community for the funeral service for Robert Henry Nelson on Wednesday, November 10. Visitation will be at 10:00 am, with the service beginning at 11:00 am. A repast will follow in the multipurpose room. For those who are unable to attend in person, the funeral service will also be shared via Zoom. Join the virtual service by following this link.

Robert’s zest for life was undeniable, his laugh, easy and frequent. He enjoyed the company of friends, even the furry kind. He cherished moments with family. He was known to buy used cars to donate or gift to friends. His interests were varied and many; from concerts, to plays to a fine glass of wine. A reader and war history buff, he was well versed in the Civil and World Wars. When visiting a museum or historical site, he was one of those people who would stop to read every plaque and was always primed to contribute in a lively discussion on politics, current affairs and religion.

An avid fan of football and basketball, he had a love-hate relationship with the (now) Washington Football Team. When they were doing poorly, he would playfully announce that he was officially a Baltimore Ravens fan!

He had many nicknames over the years: Bob, Bobby, Buttermilk (the origin of that one is still unclear), and his grandchildren lovingly called him Poppy, perhaps the most endearing of them all.

Surrounded by family and friends at Providence Hospital in Washington, D.C., Robert entered into God’s eternal arms on November 1, 2021, following the path traversed by his sister Alice Leazer-Sharps, and brothers Cary and Oliver Nelson before him. His sisters, Judith Culberson and Gloria Nelson, brother, Kenneth Nelson, along with his daughters, grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends remain to carry his memory and continue his legacy.

Masks Will Be Required in the Church Starting August 1

To combat the rising prevalence of COVID cases in the area, the District of Columbia is requiring masks to be worn indoors beginning Saturday July 31. To be compliant, Riverside will require all attendants to church to wear a face mask during the entire service starting August 1.  Please be prepared to do so Sunday if you will be there in-person.

We will get through this together safely with the help from our Heavenly Father.

Sincerely,

Rev. Nick
