Riverside United Methodist Church is happy to partner with J.C. Sawyer Elementary School. Members volunteer weekly as tutors for a 3rd grade reading program. In 2014-2015, the church donated over 100 books, proctored end-of-grade testing, supplied snacks and clothing, and sustained a very healthy backpack ministry. At Christmas, the church celebrated “Undie Sunday” when underwear, mittens, and scarves were collected for needy students. Members look forward to expanding their support for the school even further. This is transformational ministry for the students, for the community, and for the great folks of Riverside UMC!
