We have had a tumultuous two and half years of ministry. From very early on, we struggled and persevered through cancer, miscarriage, death, depression, trying to stay faithful both to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to one another. But unfortunately, this past month we have received news that we could not simply soldier past, that we are losing our funding from our denomination. And because we are not large enough of a church to support ourselves, we will be forced to close our doors at the end of January.
This is a difficult decision for all of us, and we will be using the month of January to mourn the closing of our church, but also to celebrate the good memories that have shared, and the good God we have seen evidenced through it all. I encourage you to join us from now until January 22nd, 2012, as we close the Riverside and begin a new chapter in each of our lives.
With the deepest thanks,
Pastor Peter Chin
