calls us each and all to “bloom where we’re planted,” bringing glory to God in
our daily lives—in our work and recreation; at home and around our
neighbourhoods, city, and world. Reaching Out is for every individual and every

Rather than having outreach done only by a separate mission team, we believe that every individual, family, and ministry at River Park Church participates in our vision to “Reach Out, Draw In, and Create Community”. As a result, we intend to train and equip individuals, families, and ministries at River Park Church to find their place and role as one part of the mosaic whole.
The Global Missions Team is committed to encouraging missions around the world by supporting those involved in mission and cross-cultural work, educating the church in terms of needs and opportunities, and challenging the church to look outward and be globally minded Christians.
We support a number of people working in Calgary and around the world and encourage a variety of short term mission projects for individuals.

Deacons actively provide opportunities for our church to express their gratefulness to God with offerings of wealth, time and ability. Deacons meet monthly to pray, report on activities, assess the needs of our church and community and develop programs of assistance as necessary. In between meetings we visit those in need and serve where necessary.
