On-Campus Serving Opportunities

Working together to make the lives of others better

Here at Riverbend Church we believe that God has blessed us so that we may be a blessing to others in our community and the world. Serving is a great way to be a blessing to others. Whether you have a few hours on Sundays, or have several days a year for a mission trip, you can make a significant impact in the lives of others through your service. 

We encourage and support our members to find ways to use their talents and abilities to serve and make other’s lives better. 



Where can I serve?

Here are a handful of ways you can get involved:

Frontline Ministries



Welcome & Info

Kids, Students, Adult Ministries


Unsure where to serve?

If you are unsure about how God can use you, we encourage you to attend the Discovering My Spiritual Gifts class and learn how God has uniquely wired you to be a blessing.

Global Outreach

Global serving opportunities

We approach outreach with a practical application that Christ gives us in Acts 1:8 

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” ACTS 1:8

This is a guide for us to care for our neighborhoods, our city, and the world. Riverbend has been helping in El Salvador for years and has been very successful in our partnership.

We are beginning to venture out into new areas of the globe to care for those in need, and to share Gods love with people who need a message of hope. If you would like to join these teams as we go and serve across borders please join the groups for more information.

El Salvador

We partner with Iglesia Bautista Siloe Church (Siloe for short) in San Salvador, El Salvador. It supports and operates a Christian school for almost 300 preschool to 9th grade students in the impoverished Santa Lucia colonia. Siloe provides an education, one hot meal per day and after school care. Because the neighborhood it serves is a relatively poor area where there is little financial support for the school and church, we are committed to assisting Siloe in becoming self-sustaining spiritually, economically and socially.
