Youth Ministry


Youth are a vital part of Riviera UMC! Middle School and High School are fun, challenging, and important years in all of our lives. At Riviera, we want to provide a safe place where teenagers can get together with friends for good times, good conversations and opportunities to grow in their faith. Through weekly programs, summer mission trips, retreats, music and worship, our goal is to support and guide our youth in building lives rooted in God’s love for them and for the world in which we live.  

Sunday Morning

On Sunday mornings our youth regularly participate in worship as acolytes, readers, ushers and musicians. For the musically inclined, the Riviera Youth Music Ensemble (RYME) rehearses weekly after church from 11:15 am to 12:00 noon, except on the second Sunday of the month. On that Sunday, RYME performs in the service.

All youth 6th - 12th grade are welcome each Sunday evening.
