We are here to help you get connected in a small group that will fit you best.

Small Groups

At Riverside, we have many different Small Groups, but not all of our Small Groups meet on Sunday mornings. When searching for the best group for you, you’ll find we offer a variety of groups, meeting locations and times. We can help you find the group that works best for you, your family and your schedule.

We encourage you to make involvement in our Small Groups a priority for you and your family. They are for people of all ages...from the youngest preschool child to the oldest senior adult. It is the kind of place where friendships are built; where ministry and discipleship happen; and most importantly, it is where life-change takes place! You can see a list of our small groups below.

Just fill out the form below or give us a call at (303) 433.8665 so we can get you connected!
