Angels Afoot Christmas Gift Drive

CHRISTMAS GIFT DRIVE FOR CHILDREN

Each November the members and friends of Riverbend purchase gifts for thousands of underserved children located throughout the greater Austin area and beyond.  These kids are in foster care, shelters, and other very difficult situations. Together we make Christmas a little better over 2,500 children across Austin including the Rundberg, Travis Heights, and East Austin areas.

HOW IT WORKS: COLLECTING TAGS, SORTING, & DELIVERING GIFTS

Select a a tag (or several) before or after the worship service. Select a gift from the suggestions on the label, or an age-appropriate gift. Gifts should be new, not used.Gifts should cost no more than $35-40, so that all children, some of whom may be in a group setting, will receive gifts of the same approximate value. If you feel more generous, please take additional gifts instead.Follow the instructions - some gifts are wrapped and others are not. Return your gift(s) to the Home for Hope by noon Sunday, NOV 25.

For questions or more information, please email Krista Ross.

2018 Men's Summit

Mens-Summit_1920x692.jpg

You were designed for a purpose

FEB 22–24, 2019 | Mo-Ranch, Hunt Tx

The Men’s Summit is for YOU!  It is a weekend built for guys to unplug from their daily responsibilities in order to connect with God and other men.  When you take the time to do this you will find that God really does show up!

Join us for the weekend at Mo-Ranch Christian Conference Center.

  • SPEAKER: DAN LANCE

  • SPECIAL GUEST: TOM LANDIS

  • WORSHIP LEADER: CASEY MCPHERSON

This is not one more thing to “do”. This is a time to “be”. To be with other men. To be encouraged and refreshed. To be blessed. I hope you will join me and the other men and come to our 2019 Men’s Summit. I promise you an opportunity to find “more”!

- PASTOR HANEY


Featured Speaker: Dan Lance

Lance.jpg

Dan’s an entrepreneur, a restaurant owner, and a pastor. He currently owns two restaurants in Longmont, Colorado (outside Boulder), that helps to fund their non-profit called The Rooster Party – an organization that helps couples with the high cost of funding adoptions. 

Dan will help us learn about the specific purpose that God has designed each of us for at this stage of our lives. Not only will we be challenged, but we’ll get to wrestle with this topic with the men at our table groups after each session! 

Dan was born and raised in Riverside, CA. He has been married to his wife Alyssa for 20 years and they have 3 kids: Ezekiel – 15, Sofia – 12, and Moses – 10. He’s been a church planter, lead pastor, worship leader, and executive pastor for fourteen years at two different churches in California. He’s also a close friend of our Outreach Pastor, Aaron Foor.

After opening their non-profit, in 2013 Dan and Alyssa moved to Colorado where they opened two restaurants. Dan is currently an elder at Cornerstone Church in Boulder, CO, where he also serves as a worship leader and leads their men’s ministry. He believes in saying YES to Jesus and living a life of risk.


Special Guest: Tom Landis

On Saturday afternoon, Tom Landis will share an amazing story. Tom is the founder of Howdy Homemade, the first for-profit restaurant that employs people with special needs. While opening 13 restaurants over past two decades, Tom leads by prioritizing God, family, the other employees, customers and self. 

He’s received many honors, including the Ryan Albers’ Lifetime Achievement Award, The Governor of Texas’ Lex Friedan Award for Best Small Business, The Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and his first franchise won Best Ice Cream in the State of Utah for 2018.  

He currently has more than 50 people that want to franchise, and has an exclusive partnership with Dr Pepper to make and produce Dr Pepper flavored ice cream. Tom believes the best way to know business is to know people … the best way to know people is the Bible … and the best way to know the Bible is DTS. Which is sort of weird because he only went there for a semester and was drunk before, during and after most classes. 

Landis was led to Jesus by Dr. Haney, and Jesus helped Landis with alcoholism and so many other issues. Landis lives in Dallas with his wife and two kids, but wishes he lived in Austin.


Worship Leader: Casey McPherson

McPherson.jpg

One of Austin’s most accomplished singer songwriters, he and his band Alpha Rev have toured extensively through the US and internationally. A recovering alcoholic and drug addict, Casey has a remarkable story of Christ’s intervention in his life through the music ministry of Riverbend Church. Casey is the worship leader at Riverbend for the Resonate service, lives in Austin, and is the proud father of two young girls.

Casey believes that God shows up when we get together to worship Him. So the band encourages the men to come with some expectation! He and his band will lead them in times of worship throughout the weekend, helping set the table for the men to encounter the living God, providing a platform to hear what He might say to them.


Scholarships

Scholarships are available for men who cannot afford to attend the Summit.
