A Note from the Pastor

Dear Parents:

Welcome to Riverside Baptist Church’s preschool program. We consider it a privilege that you have entrusted to our care your greatest treasure – your child. Our goal is to provide a safe place for all our children in which they can learn and be prepared for their future education. I believe that you will find our faculty and staff to be second to none and our facilities to be conducive to the development of your child.

Riverside Baptist Church is a church on a journey. We are on a journey with Jesus to learn from Him what God desires for our lives. Our prayer is that as your child progresses in our school that they will come to know Jesus and begin a lifelong journey with Him. In Matthew 19:14 Jesus says, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”Jesus desires for all children to know Him and learn from Him and that is why our Child Development Center exists.

Because this is our main purpose, I want to extend to you a personal invitation to take part in the programs our church offers your family. Listed below are some of the programs offered by Riverside:

  • Adult Bible Studies
  • College Ministry
  • Youth Ministry
  • Children’s Ministry (Preschool/Grades)
  • Sunday Worship
  • Music Ministry
  • Men and Women’s Ministries

If you would like additional information on any of the above Bible Study classes or worship opportunities please feel free to contact the CDC Office (305-279-3637) or Church Office (305-595-0542). We encourage you to take full advantage of these programs as they will provide an environment for your family that will benefit your son or daughter.

Once again, thank you for your trust and I hope to meet you at church.


Otto Fernandez
Senior Pastor
