Riverside Bible Camp

Elim has a longstanding relationship with Riverside Bible Camp, located just two miles from our church. We fully fund the tuition of children from our congregation who attend Riverside each summer and give to their mission, "to know Jesus Christ and make Christ known to all". Aside from summer camps, Riverside works year-round to serve families and individuals with various programming and events. Learn more about Riverside here.
