Senior Adults

Connecting, growing, and serving through implementing God's word

Come be a part of what God is doing in and through the lives of our Senior Adults at Riverland Hills!

We are committed to walking together as we follow Christ, demonstrating His love for us by loving one another.  

“And this is His commandment: ‘We must believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.'”

1 John 3:23

Connect!

Riverland Hills is a welcoming community that takes the Lord’s command to “love one another” seriously!  The best way to begin to do this is to connect with one another by checking out our activities below.  All our activities are intended to make getting to know one another fun and easy. Come connect with us!

Grow!

We are fully committed to growing in our Christian faith by the study and implementation of God’s Word.  We believe in engaging with the entirety of Scripture.  Intellectual knowledge is a good first step, but actually being “doers of the Word” is our primary goal as followers of Christ. Come grow with us!

Serve!

We are dedicated to using our gifts and abilities to build God’s Kingdom. We do this by serving each other, serving our community, and serving around the world.  Come serve with us!
