Riverside Presbyterian Church, Wellsville, Ohio

A member of the Presbyterian Church USA
The Synod of the Trinity
And Upper Ohio Valley Presbytery

Overlooking the Ohio River, the church at 525 Riverside Avenue has been a constant companion to the mighty Ohio since 1831.

Should that make a difference to anyone?  Only if you are willing to accept a life-changing challenge to serve community and church.

Riverside Presbyterian Church is old enough to appreciate the excitement of blending past history and present traditions, to meet tomorrow's opportunities.

And yet, we are young enough to care about children, and sponsor a quality Preschool as part of commitment to the future of church and community.

Our church family invites you to share our hospitality.  Sunday School at 9:45 a.m. and Celebration of Faith at 11 a.m. each Sunday.

Join us in worshipping, and working together, for a common goal in a strong Christian atmosphere.

We strive to be a bridge from God to the world

through worship, prayer and service.
