Our Community

Rivermont joins God where he already is at work in the community, in person or financially, or both. Here are agencies the church supports:

Community Kitchen

Chattanooga’s homeless population is swelling. During COVID, volunteers make sandwiches at home and bring them to the church on the final Monday of each month. In non-viral times, a group meets at the Kitchen and prepares lunch on the final Friday each month. Each year, the congregation participates in the Kitchen’s Fast Day fundraiser.

Habitat for Humanity

Rivermont has built 18 houses on its own, and participated with other groups and volunteers to build many more. 

Hope House

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) students find radical hospitality at 808 Vine Street, just off campus. Food insecurity is a stark reality for many students, and some lack suitable housing. Rivermont Presbyterian Women provide lunch each Tuesday in February and November, plus desserts for the Hope House coffeeshop.

Family Promise

Twice a year, Rivermont hosts families without homes for a week at a time. Scads of volunteers provide meals and companionship.

Bethlehem Center

Rivermont financially supports this 101-year-old inner city agency that provides safe space and programs for children, youth and adults.The Beth offers community gardens, virtual labs, reading labs, and many other resources for people in Chattanooga.

Northside Neighborhood House 

You can support NNH by donating money, clothing or household items or by volunteering at the Thrift Store or working with one of the children's programs or at Santa’s House during the holidays.
