Here are some of the many ways you can get involved in ministry here at Riverside. For more information on any of the opportunities listed below, email us or click on one of the links to the left or in the body of this page.
Riverside often organizes events where childcare is offered for children of participants. Volunteers are needed so that we may reliably provide this service. If you are over 21 and have a love for children, we would love it if you would consider serving in this area.
Child Development Center
Our Child Development Center ministers to and teaches children ages Infants through PK4. It is Riverside's largest ministry, reaching over 100 families each year.
Do you have a passion for worship? Do you love to sing? The choir provides an opportunity to sing, worship Christ and lead others in worshiping Christ. We need passionate voices for Christ every week and special seasonal events like Easter and Christmas.
Technology continues to grow at Riverside. Each week volunteers operate our sound and projection systems that provide valuable support to the worship services. Also, we have immediate needs for graphic design and web maintenance. If you have these technical skills or want to learn, let us know.
Our Couples Ministry exists to reinforce the covenant of marriage. Married and engaged couples are ministered to through classes, seminars, social events and much more. Building and maintaining strong, healthy marriages is the central theme of this ministry.
Drama and Puppet Ministry/Outreach
No Strings Attached drama, and puppet ministry is an ongoing ministry that strives to share the gospel of Christ through the art of puppetry, mime, singing, comedy, and drama. We teach you the skills. The Puppet and Drama Ministry are presently being reorganized and are not meeting at this time.
Hospitality & Solace
As needed, we depend on each other to help organize church celebrations, meals, and events and also to work supportively with those who are grieving. Let us know if God has gifted you in this area.
We want visitors and everyone to feel welcomed when they enter the Riverside facility. An atmosphere conducive to corporate worship starts in the parking lot and continues throughout the facility. Would you like to extend a hand? Let us know.
Sometimes we need to learn how to take better care of our bodies. Sometimes there may even be a health emergency during our services. Our health ministry helps to promote healthy habits, and also offer assistance to individuals if they have a health emergency while here at church. If you are a health professional, we could use your help.
Heart and Hands
This ministry prepares crafts for mission outreach. They gather one morning per week to make crafts and items that are used for outreach in missions, medical sites, prisons, and more. You are welcome to join us for a few hours of working fellowship, joining hearts and hands to work for the Kingdom.
The purpose of this ministry is to disciple men to be fully devoted followers of Christ and to equip them to lead in their homes and the church. Join us for prayer, Bible Study, fellowship, support, and encouragement. This ministry is for men 18 and older and meets on a weekly basis.
Riverside Park Children - Connect Groups*
Join us at Riverside Park where children are taught God's word from infants to fifth grade. Would you like to join others in volunteering to serve our children’s needs, weekly, monthly or occasionally.
Riverside Park - Children In Action
Boys and Girls, ages 3 through Fifth grade, learn about Missions, learning about those who serve around the world and locally and how they can one day become missionaries.
Adults staff our student program who volunteer to build relationships with teens (6th-12th graders) and young adult (college) students where this is a great need in this community. Is God calling you to serve in this way?
Riverside Young Adult Outreach
Miami Dade College is right next door to our church facility. We want to connect with that community of students and share the Good News relationally. Would you like to help in this ministry of work and play?
Senior Adult Support
Riverside reaches out to senior adults in several ways. If you have the heart to help our seniors through visitation, or just a helping hand, we can help you serve in this way.
Stephen Ministers are trained to be companion listeners. This ministry is available to those in our family of faith who are going through challenges and difficulties. Stephen Ministers walk alongside such persons and help them through their valleys. No one should have to struggle alone.
Vacation Bible School*
One week each summer we reach out to our neighborhood children - hundreds of them. During that week Riverside devotes itself to teaching these young lives biblical truths based on a chosen theme through song, crafts, games, and worship. There are many opportunities for service for adults and students. Join us!
We look for ways to let visitors know they are welcomed and loved at Riverside. We show hospitality - offer a cup of coffee and some pastries - and help them find their way around the facility. Would you like to join this team and extend a hand?
The purpose of this ministry is for women, ages 18 and older, to have a place to fellowship, be inspired and grow in their faith. It provides an environment for women to invite friends, neighbors, and co-workers to fellowship together, hear an inspiring message and be around loving Christians. Our Women's Ministry meets sporadically throughout the year.
