Our mission spirit manifests itself in many ways, both loally and on a global basis.
After 150 years the Riverside Moravian Church remains here on the corner serving God, our
church, and our community. We look forward to the future as we continue to be part of the
Riverside family. Our Fishes and Loaves has served the community since 1994. The need has
increased quite a bit since that time. A Hospitality Breakfast is also available for the clients.
This past year, Christmas Gifts were collected for the children in the Riverside Schools. In the
Fall, we collected school supplies. Our VBS program began over 20 years ago drawing as many
as 130 kids from the community.
OPENING OUR DOORS TO THE COMMUNITY

Keeping with the Moravian spirit of mission, members of our congregation have gone to serve in
other parts of the world and within the USA. Following disasters, members have served in
Mississippi, Indiana and the Jersey Shore. Some of us have traveled to Labrador, Honduras and
other mission fields. The VBS program we use always suggests a mission project. This year we
chose to collect for our churches in Nepal. We raised $260.70 thanks to the generosity of many.
Our congregation has adopted a village in Tanzania called Mlogolo, specifically to provide care
for children who are orphaned by AIDS or other disaster. For $25 a year, per child, we help
supply food, bedding, school uniforms, school supplies and basic medical care.
