Every member of the Body of Christ has been blessed with unique skills and gifts. Part of being obedient to the Great Commission and continuing Christ’s work is actively serving in Christ’s Body whether it be in the church or in the local community. Here you will find some exciting volunteer opportunities at The River Alliance Church and in the community.
In The Church
Every child who enters our church deserves to be valued and loved; we offer childcare on Sunday mornings in order to bless both the children and their families. As part of the nursery team, you will be responsible for caring for infants and toddlers and have the opportunity to reflect Christ’s love to them and their families. If you are interested in helping with nursery, please email email@example.com.

Streams is our Sunday morning children’s church for kids from 2nd through 6th grade.

In The Community
Envision Twin Cities
The Twin Cities has become home to many displaced people groups. 1 out of 6 people in the Twin Cities are first or second-generation immigrants. In 2015 and 2016, refugees arrived in Minnesota from Somalia, Burma, Iraq, Ethiopia, Bhutan, Congo, Ukraine, Syria, Liberia, the former Soviet Union, and more. There are an estimated 77,000 Somali people in the Twin Cities—more than anywhere else in the country. St. Paul has the largest Hmong community in the United States. The Liberian population in the Twin Cities is some of the largest in America. St. Paul has a growing population of Karen, a minority group from Burma, currently the largest in the USA.
The purpose of Envision Twin Cities is to equip and to assist district churches in reaching out to the refugee and immigrant communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the goal of planting churches in the refugee and immigrant communities as people come to faith and are discipled. We want to help the local church in building relationships with refugees and other immigrants through meeting their basic needs.
