40th Anniversary Party

40th_GRACE_1920x692.jpg

Riverbend Church is turning 40, and we’d like you to celebrate with us!

AUGUST 25, 2019: Immediately following our 9:45 & 11:15AM services

History.png

In July of 1979, a trail-blazing Pastor and a handful of courageous families had a vision to start a church like no other: a community where anyone — from aspiring saint to cynical skeptic — is welcome to come experience the grace that God has to offer.

40 years later, that vision hasn’t changed, and we think that’s something worth celebrating.

Arts.png

Join us August 25 after our 9:45 and 11:15AM services for our 40th Anniversary party. We’ll bring the food, fun, and memories. All you need to bring is you ... and maybe a friend!


Want to win some Riverbend swag?

Participate in our Selfie Scavenger Hunt if you want to experience everything we have to offer at our 40th Anniversary Celebration! You can find instructions and clues for the scavenger hunt on the Riverbend App or by downloading the guide.

NOV 10 | 5:30PM | 7000 Cameron Rd, Austin, TX 78752

Give thanks this year by serving one of our mission partners, East Austin Neighborhood Development Center (EANDC).

We're looking for volunteers to serve along side our Community Groups on NOV 10, 5:30PM for the Thanksgiving Feast at our Proyecto Esperanza Neighborhood Development Center (NDC). This is a great opportunity for anyone to jump in and serve an amazing community at home here in Austin.

Pradeep Thorat has been busy making connections and training more than 200 people in English classes. He has invited us to participate with him by helping him host a Thanksgiving dinner for all the families who have gone through the program.

This is a time to serve people who usually do all the serving, and it is a time to share the reason why we come together to give thanks.

There will be around 250 people learning from us what our Thanksgiving celebration is all about. Please consider joining in to serve good food, eat good food, and make new friends with those who are wanting to practice their English.
