First Time Guests

We Guarantee You Will Be Welcomed!


Parking is available on all sides of the church buildings, and you can even park in Coral Gables Parking Lot #19, nearby. When worship services are taking place, the most-frequently used parking is on the East and North sides of the building.

Enter the sanctuary by the front doors, and enter the Narthex – the welcome area. A greeter and/or an usher will meet you and answer any questions you may have. If you enter the building from the North parking area, please follow the arrows that say Worship Service.

The Sanctuary

If you are a first time visitor please fill out the Friendship pad. We use this information to send you a letter from the pastor and provide you with information that might answer any questions you may have.

Riviera follows a traditional worship style with a printed bulletin where you can follow the Order of Service and sing from the hymnals.

Got Kids?

If you have small children and would like for them to be in the extended nursery care during the worship service, please sit with them at the time of the Children’s Sermon and walk with them, if you wish, or have them follow the nursery caregiver, Josephine Gurri.

Our extended nursery is for children up to the age of 3. Josephine is CPR certified and has been our nursery caregiver for over 15 years. If you have older children, they are invited to attend the Children Sunday School Class appropriate for their age group or they may stay in worship with you.  There is an activity table in the back for children.


Communion at RPC is on the First Sunday of every month. Everyone is invited to the table.  However, don’t feel uncomfortable if you don’t wish to take Communion.

After Services

After the service, refreshments and goodies will be available either in the Narthex or in the courtyard. You may hear this time for extended mingling referred to as “Holy Grounds.” Please feel free to have refreshments and speak with our Pastor and members. Our members try to find people who may be new to our church and make them feel welcome. But we are human and sometimes we may miss you. Please introduce yourself to someone and tell them you are “new.”
