  Join Us For An Old Fashioned Tent Revial in Riverside       What’s really cool about this revival is the fact that it is put on by 5 local churches.         This year each of these pastors will invite a guest preacher to team preach with them for their night!               Supper is served at 5:30 and it is inexpensive. For only $2.50 per plate you will enjoy an entree, a drink AND dessert!               Then at 6 p.m. there will be congregational singing followed by some great preaching.       This year we’re starting off Camp Meeting with a bang! By that, I mean that Brother Jim Parrish drew opening night. (Monday, April 15, 2013)   Brother Jim Parrish is from Burning Hope in Trinity, Texas and he will get the crowd on fire for Jesus and ready for a revival.       On Tuesday night, ...

    Tent Raisers Needed in Riverside This Saturday     It’s tent raising time again at Riverside Adventures in beautiful Riverside, Texas! What’s the tent for?   I’m glad you asked! The tent is for Camp Meeting 2013 which is an old fashioned tent revival.         What’s really cool about this revival is the fact that it is put on by 5 local churches. But there will be more about the revival later this week. FIRST.... before we can have a revival, we must have a tent!!     So.... we need volunteers to come out and help raise the tent. Show up at Riverside Adventures, just north of the Trinity River Bridge on State Highway 19 in Riverside, at 9 AM THIS Saturday, April 13, 2013.     Be there or be square!!     Camp Meeting 2013

    Area residents and parishioners from multiple churches celebrated Easter Sunrise Services together at 7 AM at the Riverside United Methodist Church prayer gardens. Brother Jim Newton of Riverside Baptist Church welcomed us. Brother Ural Massey from Broyles Chapel opened us up in prayer, and Reverend Warren Austin brought the message.   We enjoyed coffee and donuts before heading off to our respective churches for the regular morning services.   I love being part of a small community that enjoys worshiping together! God is so good! ALL the time!!

  The 2013 Easter EGGstravaganza Was Awesome The kids had their face painted, bounced around in the castles, hunted eggs, and played games. We ate hot dogs, guessed how many jelly beans were in a jar, gave away easter baskets, and took pictures!     The Easter EGGstravaganza is sponsored by Broyles Chapel, Riverside Baptist Church, and Riverside United Methodist Church as a community outreach. It is a wonderful way to interact with the community and get people out among their neighbors.        If you missed this year's Easter EGGstravaganza, don't worry. There are ample opportunities to get to know your neighbors near Riverside. Stay tuned for the Thomas Lake Road Community Boat Parade, Thomas Lake Road Community Golf Cart Parade, the Community Thanksgiving Supper, and the Riverside Chr...

  I wish that I had my regular camera to shoot this, but all I had was my phone. The moon was so pretty tonight as we were heading home. I followed it (the moon) around to Bethy Creek Resort just to see how it looked over the water. As I shot my picture with my handy dandy call phone I noticed a photographer on their knees, using a tripod to catch a great shot of the moon over the water. Good for them!!

  Just Sold! 18 Walnut in Riverside Lakeland! I was the listing agent for this great home in Riverside Lakeland. It was my pleasure to work with Roberta Plant from Markham Realty. Roberta brought us buyers that were pre-approved with a trusted lender, Chuck Lynn, of Home Trust Home Loans. When I say that Chuck is a trusted lender, I mean it. In 2007, when my parents were purchasing their home in Riverside, I entrusted Chuck Lynn to assist them with their  home loan. Chuck is thorough in his explanations about the different loan programs available to buyers. I also appreciate the way he lays out the do’s and DONT’s for buyers to observe from the day of approval all the way through to closing day. Last but not least, Chuck is a man of integrity. This closing did have a couple of unexpecte...
