What an amazing month we've had!
We started with Celebration Sunday - stopping to remember and celebrate all that God has done over this last year. If you missed the video highlights of the year, then do check it out HERE. We gathered together to celebrate, to baptise some people and eat ice cream. The kids even had an amazing Super Hero party, hosted by our very own Incredible Hulk and Wonder Woman, and their amazing team.
And we continued our series on Risk Takers. We've heard some incredible stories of what God has been doing on our streets, in our services and with the kids. One week some of our children and youth even led our services and led us in worship as we explored how we can take a risk with the next generation. Listen back to all the talks HERE and be encouraged by some of the stories from Riverside that are being shared across the Vineyard movement:
It might be the summer, but there are still plenty of things going on…
