HOW LONG DOES THE SERVICE LAST?
Our services are designed to be between 45 and 60 minutes. We understand that your time is precious, so we desire to fit everything we can into that time slot.
CAN MY KIDS SIT WITH ME IN THE SERVICE?
Your children are more than welcome to join you in the services, but we want you to know that one of the things we are most proud of is our Riverbend Kid’s Ministry
Unapologetically, we believe we have the best Children's Ministry Program in town. Our only fear of your kids sitting in the service is that they'd miss the time of their lives in RiverKIDS!
Children are welcome in our RiverKIDS program as early as 6 weeks old.
