Welcome to Riverbend

We understand that visiting a church can be awkward and intimidating, but Riverbend was created for people who are intimidated by church. We invite you to give us a try! Feel free to take your time, look around and get to know us. We hope to see you soon!


Riverbend Student Ministry exists to teach students about God, equip them to make disciples and prepare them for a life of faith 

Parents! As a staff we strive to keep you up to date on all that is happening in our student ministry on a weekly basis.  If you are NOT receiving weekly emails from us and you would like to, please email Samantha Cooper at
