At Riversgate Church
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another - John 13:35
We invite you to explore places where you can share your gifts with the body of Christ!! We know that people go through different seasons of life and have different amounts of time, resources and gifts to share with others! Please know we exist to help your gifts be discovered and used in ways that fill you and bless others!! To get more information on any of the areas or needs listed below, or to get involved just click on the SWIM button below and let us know what "river" you'd like to join!
As a family, we know each person is created uniquely. As followers of Christ, we believe He gives each of us gifts that are to be used to equip and encourage His church family. Our hope is that you would consider investing your times and talents in an area of our church family that will bring you joy, help encourage other members of our family and let people experience His love in a very tangible way!
Children and youth Ministry
Our first consideration for the children that come to experience Christ's love at Riversgate is that they have a safe, engaging space to learn how special and deeply loved they are by God. To that end, we ask that people interested in serving in our Children's Ministry first attend the church for 6 months before applying to serve.
Children's Ministry Needs:
Preschool Servants. This is a bustling class and many hands are needed! With 3-4 servants available, we can make sure that the love of the Lord is extended to each child the Lord brings into our midst! Your role can be crafted to include anything from being an extra set of hands for crafts, games and stories, to more of a teaching role as you feel led!
Gateway Servants. Our Kindergarten-1st grade class is full of God's gifts! We could use your help in assisting our primary teachers of this class by being an extra set of hands and smiling hearts upon the many children that God has brought into this space!
Gateway Lesson Presenter. Want to still be available for the sermon but looking for a way to serve the kids? The Gateway Lesson Presenter shares the overarching lesson for the day with the Gateway (K-5th grade) group. The dynamism and creativity of this role allow students to engage the concept before they break off into their age appropriate groups to further explore the lesson. Would you consider helping once a month in this up front position!?!
Toddler and Nursery Floater. Can't commit to a regular schedule of service, but would love to help as our needs and your timing allow? This is the role for you! Become part of our list of floating servants who step in as needed when your schedule allows! Bless our younger gifts from the Lord with your time, smiling heart and willingness to nurture these bundles of joy!
Youth Ministry Needs:
Middle School and High School Speakers. Can't make an ongoing commitment but want to encourage our students as they navigate their teenage years? Have the gift and passion of communicating truth? We would love to have you come speak at one of our gatherings sharing the Word and your experiences in navigating these challenging years!
Event Servants. Whether it be transporting students or participating in a single day event activity with the students, we are always looking for people that we can add to our list of servants that would love to share life in an event setting! You can help with everything from food, set-up, tear-down to actually participating with the students!
Female Small Group Leader. One of the greatest missional callings is to walk through life with teenagers. Often, students' communication with parents is strained during these years and the influence of a shepherding role model is needed and powerful. If you have an interest in journeying with a group of Middle School or High School female students, we have many opportunities for you to invest in their lives on a recurring basis!
Each Sunday, we ask family members to help serve at our information booth to help people InvestiGate how they might better get connected to our church family. If you are interested in serving as a greeter before service or in helping people get connected after service, please consider joining our team! Simply fill out the Swim form and indicate your desire to help in this way!
