Serving Opportunities on Sunday mornings

Working together to make the lives of others better

Here at Riverbend Church we believe that God blesses us so that we can be a blessing to others at Riverbend, around Austin, and across borders.

We encourage everyone who calls Riverbend home to find ways to use their time, talents, and abilities to serve and make other’s lives better — you can make a significant impact on our visitors through your service.




Step 1: Find the team that you’re most interested in

The Connect Team

The volunteers who serve on our Connect Team are a vital part of our Sunday morning ministry here at Riverbend Church — they’re the first point of contact for our attenders on Sunday mornings.
