Our Fate Lies Not in Our Hands

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.

Ephesian 1:3

Church, hear the good news of Christ’s blessings! Our fate is not in our own hands, but in God’s and it has already been determined for us. And God, in mercy and love, refuses to be limited by our inabilities or abilities. God refuses to be limited by our abilities to do harm, evil, and even produce death. As we begin this new year, may we count our blessings, may we be blessings to one another, and may we demonstrate to the world the hope that Jesus brings. Amen. Thank you,

Rev. Nick

Christ is the Reason for the Season

Dear Riverside,

As we conclude our Advent season and eagerly anticipate the coming of Christmas this week, it is my prayer you and your loved ones find hope, love, joy, and peace. I pray that during this time you are filled with warmth and contentment. This time of year can be difficult for many. Please know and feel the love of your Riverside family. If you are able, please join us Thursday at 7:00 pm for a Christmas Eve Lessons and Carols virtual service. The information is posted below and on the website.

Sincerely, 

Rev. Nick


Thursday, December 24, 7:00 pm: You are invited to a special live, virtual Lessons and Carols Christmas Eve service! Members of the choir and diaconate will lead us in Christmas carols and scripture readings as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.

You will not be asked to participate, simply come and enjoy our service. The Zoom link is here.

Righteousness and Praise

“To be a Christian is to live dangerously, honestly, freely – to step in the name of love as if you may land on nothing, yet to keep on stepping because the something that sustains you no empire can give you and no empire can take away.”

Cornel West

In light of this weekend’s events, Riverside Baptist Church wishes to state that we stand with and support our sisters and brothers of Asbury United Methodist Church and Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal. Riverside remains resolute in her commitment to justice, peace, and love. We will contest hate and prejudice at every corner while demonstrating the radical teachings and love of Jesus, whom we both celebrate and await during this Advent season. Love will overcome.
