Financial Support


Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp is blessed with countless donors with joyful, caring and generous hearts. Riverside’s funding comes from individuals and congregations that partner with us in providing Christ-centered camp experiences year around. How might God be calling you to partner with the life-changing ministry of Riverside through the gifts that He's given you?  A few ways you can consider giving financially to the ministry:


1. Give financially by cash, check, or online giving.  Your giving goes directly towards the ministry of Riverside that includes providing camperships for campers who cannot afford to come to camp, stewarding our grounds and facilities well for God's purposes, helping raise up leaders for the local church, and all other operations that help us carry out our mission.


2. Become a Riverside 12:1 Partner by giving a recurring, monthly gift. 

Hebrews 12:1-2 says, "Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us

also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race

set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that

was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God."  Your monthly giving helps us continue to provide experiences for thousands of people to 'fix their eyes on Jesus' for this year and years to come.  Click here to set this up online, or if you would like our office to help, contact us at 515-733-5271.


3. Consider Riverside in your Estate Giving.  If you'd like to talk more about how your estate giving can make an impact in the Kingdom ministry of Riverside, contact Chris at or 515-733-5271.
