|It is my JOY to welcome visitors and members alike...|
Mildred Martinez: Hospitality Leader
Ever since I was a little girl, I was curious about Jesus Christ. I had heard about Him, but I didn't know Him. I couldn't understand why He would die for me. Why does He love me? I have always been a very quiet and shy person. I know what it's like to feel like an outcast, unworthy and unaccepted. One of my biggest fears in visiting a new church was the uneasiness of being a newcomer, the staring eyes, the whispers, the judgments, etc. This was until several years ago that my youngest sister invited me to Riverside. To God be the glory! Here at Riverside I found my extended family. I found acceptance, and most of all I met my Savior! My dear friends, today I am honored and humbled to be a part of the Hospitality Ministry; to welcome visitors and members alike with the same caring, loving and warm smile I was welcomed with years ago!
