In the late 1800's millions of immigrants began arriving in New York City by steamship.  Many of these newcomers had no money and no family as they stepped of the boat.  Fortunately, Alma Matthews and members of the Women's Home Missionary Society were there to greet young women and guide them to safety.  Alma Matthews spent 40 years meeting boats and making sure these new Americans had clothing, a meal, and a bed to sleep in.  Learn more about this Methodist woman who followed her faith and changed history.

Cancelled temporarily due to the Covid-19 safety measures.  It is being conducted and can be viewed on the Riverside United Methodist Church Facebook page.
