Riverside Music & Arts Program
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” Col 3:16
What is the Music & Arts Program?
The Riverside Music & Arts Program is designed to help improve the overall experience and praise offered at all of our Sunday services. It also serves as a source of great music to the Quad City area, bringing at least one monthly performances by professionals in the music industry to our church. The concert series program will include both sacred and secular music (within appropriate limits).
Music is one of the most powerful spiritual tools that shape the imaginative faculty of people. Through hymns and songs of praises, people are made to see life and God in a different light. It opens the eyes of believers to the wonders of the universe and its creator. Saint Augustine, “He who sings prays twice,” further underlines music’s ability to get us closer to the creator. The biblical David mostly communicated with God through music. Paul, the Apostle, also highlighted the divine connection ability of music in his various apostolic missions. Many Christians sing gospel songs to edify their spirit and cleanse their soul.
Childrens & Youth Music Education
Riverside if excited to announce the introduction of the Children's & Youth Music Education program. The education program will start with offering piano & voice lessons to children coming from financially disadvantaged children right here in the church. The lessons will be offered mostly at no set cost, other than a donation the family can choose to or not to give based on their financial capabilities. Piano & voice are the two instruments that will be just the start of the education program with future plans to expand to other instruments.
