You are invited to come and explore opportunities for all ages.

At Riviera Presbyterian Church, we believe service is one of the ways people connect to Jesus Christ. We also believe that we are called to be servants to mission as we give our time and resources – both in the church, our city, and the world.

Below are descriptions of your church committees. Serving roles vary in time commitment and experience. We encourage you to serve, there’s a place for you. Our goal is to have every church member, friend, and child involved.

Please read and prayerfully consider where your gifts and passion lie, fill out, and submit your Faith Commitment.

If you have an idea that you would like to discuss with Melanie or a committee chair, please send them an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
