Worship

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” – Colossians 3:15-17 ESV

“He who sings prays twice.” – St. Augustine of Hippo


Worship – telling God how much He is worth – is essential to the Christian life and music is an essential element of worship.

Worship at Riverside includes a variety of musical styles, utilizing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs as mentioned in the Scripture above. Riverside is blessed with several musicians, vocalists and instrumentalists, who lead us in worship each Sunday.

In addition to music, worship at Riverside includes prayer, confessions of faith, Scripture readings and Biblical teaching.

Our goal in worship: “Whatever we do in word or deed, we do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” 


The Spirit of God works the Word of God so the people of God become like the Son of God
