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

Riverside Prepares Plans to Resume In-Person Worship Services July 18

What a Day of Rejoicing that Will Be!

For the past year, the staff, deacons, trustees, and lay leaders have been in conversation around when and how to regather for worship once more. Following the messages from the CDC, WHO, and Washington DC public health officials, every decision was made with our community’s health and safety in mind. 

With the vaccine rollout, we feel that we are able to begin planning for regathering for worship with July 18 as our first Sunday together since the pandemic began. This is a preliminary announcement that is subject to change – pending any additional information from the latest public health guidelines in the next several weeks.

Please read the additional information under “Regathering,” noting that we are asking everyone, even those who have been vaccinated, to always wear a mask inside the church. We know that things will be different, and we trust that you will understand that this plan has all who will be in church from the youngest to the no longer-the-youngest in mind. 

We thank you for your cooperation and we look forward seeing you in person and once again worshiping together in our sanctuary on July 18.

Please look for additional information as the date draws nearer.
