Welcome to the Evangelical Covenant Church of Riverside (ECC Riverside)

We welcome you to come and join with our community of faith. We are a mix of ages, professions, church backgrounds and worship styles. Together we are becoming active disciples who are reaching and serving our community for Christ and we would love for you join us on this journey of faith.

A Note from Our Pastor

Welcome to the Evangelical Covenant Church of Riverside’s little corner of the web. I hope that you find all the information you need on this site.
At ECC Riverside, we believe that all of humanity is on a journey of faith and we welcome all who would join with us on that journey. We believe this journey needs to be centered in and directed by Jesus Christ. We realize that not everyone shares this conviction. Therefore, the only thing we ask of you as you join with us is that you would be willing to consider the words and call of Christ. In other words, you don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not. We welcome you as you are and invite you to walk with us. We are convinced that if you do, you will discover that you are loved by God more than you could possibly imagine and that there is a great call on your life to be a blessing to our world.

What can you expect if you visit? We gather for a time of prayer, worship and learning each Sunday at 9:30am. You’ll find that our “dress code” runs the spectrum from casual to Sunday best, so you can be confident that you’ll fit in either way.  On most Sundays, our children participate with the entire congregation for the first part of our gathering which includes songs, hymns and prayers and then are invited to a time of Sunday School. After the children are dismissed there will be scripture readings and a sermon.  Our expectation is that the sermon will both stimulate and challenge you.  One the first Sunday of each month, our children stay with us for the whole service. The sermon on these “Intergenerational” Sundays is a little shorter and contains an interactive element for our children that keeps them engaged throughout.

We would love for you to join us, journey with us, get to know us and allow us to get to know you. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you soon!
