About us

Riviera United Methodist Church was chartered in 1966 and has seen more than 50 years of ministry to the St. Petersburg area and beyond. We are a multi-generational church with a vibrant worship every week in our newly renovated Sanctuary. The campus here on 62nd Avenue is home to a number of ministries including Riviera Day School, Boys & Girls Scouts Troop 261, Al-Anon meetings and more. We are grateful to serve our community through missions programs like partnering with Wesley UMC Food Pantry, the Doug Brown Homeless ministry and more.

Our senior pastor, Rev. Augustus Allen (Pastor Augie) joined us in the summer of 2022. He, his wife and four kids have served in ministry for the past seven years in the Florida Annual Conference and they are excited to join Riviera in this next chapter.

We would love to share more about our church! Come visit us for worship @ 10am each Sunday and be sure to stop by and say "Hello!" to one of our friendly hospitality members. Be sure to check out our Facebook page where we stream live each Sunday and post more about upcoming events and ways to connect.

Riviera is a member of the Florida Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. More info about the United Methodist Church and our connection in the Florida Conference can be found here: www.flumc.org
