Volunteers are indispensable at Riverside! It is through their support and service that the church’s vital programs of outreach get accomplished.
Volunteer positions are open to all individuals who meet the qualifications for each volunteer position without reference to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or condition of handicap. Most volunteer areas require a minimum of three and one-half hours per week during program hours.
There are many opportunities available to offer your time and talent at Riverside and in whatever area you meet the qualifications. We have listed only a few possibilities where you can help others and receive the blessing of new friends.
You may want to volunteer only occasionally or on a more consistent basis.
