The Spring Men’s Retreat at Riverside has become a great annual retreat! You can expect great teaching, fellowship, worship, prayer, fun times, small groups, and a steak fry! The retreat is open to all men age 18 and over, or 14 and over if accompanied by a father, guardian, or grandfather. The weekend begins on Friday at 7pm and will conclude Saturday around 8pm.
