Connect and Grow with Us


The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.

2 Corinthians 13.13:

At First Congregational Church Riverside, we celebrate our diversity. Sunday mornings find a wide variety of people from all walks of life.

Likewise, we have a wide variety of interests. Because of this, small groups of people gather together to pursue unique and common interests. That is what these Affinity Groups are about. And if you have an interest you would like to explore within the community of the church, let us know.


“Reason is the natural order of truth; but imagination is the organ of meaning.”

– C.S. Lewis

We are always growing in our understanding.  At FCC, we provide opportunities for individuals of all ages to study, engage, reason, and imagine in order to further understand our faith in this world.

All are welcome here.
