We enjoy the divine in everyone…including the homeless. We recently helped 10 homeless folks get into their new apartment. Click here for pictures of our God’s Work, Our Hands” event.

For the past several years we’ve held a Christmas party for about 30 homeless individuals and give each of them either a good winter coat or boots. This year we were joined by The Living Beatitudes Community who furnished a delicious turkey dinner.


Our Little Free Library on Maplelawn Avenue is open to serve children of the neighborhood. Feel free to borrow a book and enjoy it. Bring it back and get another. For more information: Click Hlittle-library-5576-2ere

“Before coming to North Riverdale, we never realized what we were missing!”
                                                                        – A new member who recently joined NRLC.

“This congregation models how people accept and serve others. I’m now less judgmental and I’m a better person.”
– Another new member who has jumped into the serving mode at North Riverdale.

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, North Riverdale Lutheran Church invites you to visit our church family and experience one of the friendliest churches in Dayton.  We are a loving and affirming community that believes God delights in the uniqueness of each of us.  In welcoming everyone, we share celebrations and sorrow; rejoicing and recovery; wholeness and renewal.  Come, see how you can enjoy exploring, serving, and growing.
