On September 25th, Riverside Baptist Church  held a special service to mark its 165th anniversary. Members of the public who missed the celebration of this historic occasion can still walk into the church’s atrium and view their rotating history exhibit of photographs and artifacts that highlight milestones in the church’s history. Please contact the church to arrange a time during business hours (9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday thru Thursday) to visit. Their phone number is 202-554-4330 (option 1).
