The Annual Riverside Pride Sunday Breakfast hosted by Maranatha
Maranatha, Riversiders for LGBTQ+ Concerns, a ministry of the Mission and Social Justice Commission, invites you to the annual Riverside Pride Sunday Breakfast. The event will kick off at 9:00 am with an opening prayer and hot breakfast served followed by a few songs from Riverside’s LGBTQ+ membership and an awards ceremony for LGBTQ students who have applied for either the Edgar Richards or the John Robeson music annual scholarship. The students will have an opportunity to give a short speech or sing a song. Our guest preacher Noami Leapheart will be in attendance.

Maranatha is the first ministry of its kind within a single congregation in the United States. Founded in the spring of 1978, it has grown from a small group meeting weekly for mutual support into an organization that sponsors a broad range of education, political and social activities. The name Maranatha is an Aramaic derivation that means “the Lord cometh” and served as a word of greeting and reassurance for early Christians at the time of their persecution by the Roman authorities. In this time of division and endless attacks on the LGBTQ+ community, we are so blessed and thankful to be able to gather together during Pride month.
