Adult Programs


Description: We are a congenial group of readers who read and discuss both novels and religious books. We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15 in the Duff House. All members of the group are welcome to select books for discussion.



Marianne Montero will lead a Lectio Divina study. Lectio Divina (Latin for “Divine Reading”) is a traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God’s Word. It does not treat Scripture as texts to be studied, but as the Living Word. Traditionally, Lectio Divina has four separate steps: read; meditate; pray; contemplate.

When: Every Sunday morning, 9:30-10:30
Where: Large room at the end of the hall in the Sunday School (upstairs from the sactuary).

We’re Involved Creating Knitting Socializing. A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle; it needs a wick to shed light. Meet the WICKS at the Riverdale Presbyterian Church in Duff House every first and second Tuesday of the month to knit, crochet and craft. We also have the pleasure of socializing with friends from RPC and beyond during and after the meeting. All are welcome, do come and join our group when you can. It is a time to renew our faith and make new friendships. Refreshments are always welcome.

This year there are two main projects:

  • Lap afghans for residents at The Methodist Home. These can vary in size, however, they usually range from a minimum of 18 inches to a maximum of 36 inches. So – you could have – 30″X 36″ – or – 20″ X 30″ – or – 24″ X 24″ — or anything in between. They are usually, but not limited to, knitted or crocheted, and can be worked in one piece, strips, squares or ‘your choice’.
  • Items to be sold at our spring and winter events to benefit Riverdale Presbyterian Church programs. We have many talents in our group. so we have sold a variety of items – to mention a few: greeting cards, lovely baby items, potholders, head-bands, scarves and other items.
