Meals Team

On an as-needed basis.

Do you enjoy cooking and sharing your food with others? Did you know RCC has an opportunity to both bless through and be blessed by the cooking gifts of the Meals Team members? The Meals Team provides prayers and meals to Riverside family members who are ill, recovering from surgery, celebrating a new baby, or experiencing some other life change that creates a temporary need. Members sign up to cook and deliver meals as they are able, and enjoy the opportunity to demonstrate their passion for Jesus through their passion for cooking. Our hope is to bring comfort through the use of our gifts and to remind the meal recipients that they are not alone during their times of need.
