“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord.”

— LUKE 2:11 (NIV)

I loved getting to know other people and seeing the kids run through the maze. Sitting beside the fire pit is just so amazing when it's soo cold. Looking forward to seeing a lot of people & to connect

My highlight was seeing people write on the cards in the stable that they prayed the prayer to invite Jesus into their lives.

What I have experienced with serving at RLOW is that there is so much magic in the experience for those who serve as well as those who attend. Whether its your 1st time coming or you have been every year. People light up and become almost child like again. I love watching people be filled with joy over and over again. No matter what they faced that day or that week or even what may lay ahead for them.

What a fun but humbling experience. I absolutely love the smiles on the children's faces when they see the colorful lights and displays. It brings me back to my childhood when my father and mother would drive thru neighbor hoods looking for lights and displays of Christmas. Then the story of Jesus makes your heart melt, and you really want to know him on a personal level. It's like a candle thats been lit and you can feel the warmth inside you.

Riverside Lights has given us an opportunity to connect and share with new people. It has given us the opportunity to serve as a family. Thank you Riverside

I don’t get to talk to people very often after going through the River Lights, but looking back on the hayride and seeing people in tears as we drive through or families with their arms around eachother enjoying the Christmas story is always a joy. Just that happiness or the closeness it brings to people is what keeps me coming back.

“Serving with people around Christmas time is always extra special. Also meeting new folks as well!”

“I was blown away by the excellence and the level of professionalism of this free event. It was truly a highlight of our Christmas.”

“It’s more than I can even say!”

“Spending Christmas Eve huddled in our pickup truck, driving through the lights display, listening to the Christmas story as a family! This is a family tradition that can’t be duplicated!”

“I had so much fun taking my toddler boys on the horse drawn hayride to the laughter of the Christmas characters. As we took on the beautiful backdrop of the lights reflecting off the river, we enjoyed butter cookies and hot cocoa. After that we sat by the fire.”

“Very engaging and family friendly! Just like a Hallmark movie with it’s beauty and inviting atmosphere! Met a lot of new and great people and also got closer to the people I already know!”
