Riverside Church

What to Expect

We know visiting a new church can be intimidating, but it's our desire for you to be completely comfortable and relaxed while you're at RCC.

With that in mind we have provided answers on this page to some frequently asked questions. If you have any questions this page does not address, please feel free to contact us ahead of time or ask one of our volunteers at the Information Center in the lobby when you arrive.

When is your service?

We have a Sunday morning English speaking service at 10:00 a.m. (with pre-service prayer beginning at 9:00 a.m.) Plus one Spanish service at 2 p.m. with Pastora Joneida Garcia

How do I get to RCC?

Riverside Community Church is located right off of I-95 exit 80 in Harford County, Maryland.

From I-95, take exit 80 north toward Churchville. Make your second right onto Creswell Road. (The first right leads to a State Highway Administration area and is easy to miss.) After half a mile, turn left on Carsins Run Road. After about half a mile you will see RCC on your right.

Where should I park?

Our main parking lot is right at the end of the church's driveway. Turn your four-way flashers on as you approach and our parking lot attendants will guide you to a spot reserved just for you!

What is your music like?

We sing and worship to a diverse mix of music, from classic hymns in a contemporary style to modern praise and worship songs. We worship to music from artists of many different styles and backgrounds.

As a warning, our music can be on the loud side at times, especially during faster songs. It is not nearly as loud as a concert and so long as you do not have sensitive hearing you should not experience any discomfort. If you do have sensitive hearing, you may wish to sit closer to the back so you are further from the speakers.

Where do my children go?

We have a place for your children infant-aged through fifth grade.

In the lobby we have electronic sign in or "Child Check-In" to ensure your child's safety while they're in our care. After they are signed in, there are three classrooms. In the main building we have the Nursury or "The Joey's" and the Pre-K class right next to it. Behind the main building is where you will take your elementary school aged children... we call that "The Outback"!

Am I expected to put money in the offering?

If you are visiting with us, you are our guest, and we do not expect you to place any money in the offering. You are welcome to give if you would like, but we only really want to know who you are!

Will I be singled out during the service?

Absolutely not. However, we would like to give you prayer card and gift bag. On the card you can let us know who you are and make any prayer requests you may have.
