Participate in Worship
Music is a vital part of worship at RPC. All members of the church take part in our music ministry: singing hymns, chants, and spirituals as a congregation. RPC Choirs offer a chance to become more deeply involved in the worship experience, share the joys of Christian fellowship, and serve the church and community. Children ages 5-13 can participate in the Riverside Singers and the Riverside Ringers. Adults choirs include the acaBELLA Ringers-a handbell choir, and our chancel choir. More information about opportunities to participate can be found on the Music page.
The Liturgist leads the Congregation in worship and may be any member, junior high or older.
The Acolyte brings in the light of Christ, brings forward the Sunday School offering, and takes out the light of Christ. Youth from fourth grade and older are encouraged to participate in this role.
Ushers welcome those attending church, provide them with bulletins, and assist them in finding seats.
Flowers for Worship
We welcome your gift of flowers to enhance worship. Flowers may be donated in memory of a loved one, in remembrance of a special occasion, to the glory of God or for a celebration you wish to recognize. A sign up poster is outside the main office where you may sign up for a particular Sunday, or you may contact the church office. There are two arrangements and you may take one or both home with you, or the deacons will deliver the bouquets to sick members, shut-ins and to families with new babies. The cost for the flowers is $50.
