Mission Statement of Riverdale Church at University Park


A people gathered by Christ:

- Who express gratitude through praise,

- Who know the humility found through repentance,

- Who seek to practice the compassion of Jesus as God's very will!


To Bring our Mission Statement to Life:

- We invite and strive to provide a warm welcome to people of varied religious viewpoints, cultural backgrounds and personal lifestyles.

- We nurture children, youth and adults through a spirited ministry of Christian Education.

- We offer innovative programs in music and drama that add spirit to our Church and welcome to our surrounding neighborhood.

- We offer significant financial support to the mission of the Presbyterian Church (USA), as well as to a significant number of local mission organizations in Prince George's County.

- We open our doors to the homeless, to community service groups and for activities that enrich quality of life.

-Such ministry is performed by many volunteers, who are sustained by an energetic staff.


In all that we do we seek to be strong in the teaching and compassion of Jesus Christ!
