Financial Ministry

God wants us to have financial peace freedom whether in crisis, great abundance or somewhere in between. Our Financial Ministry strives to help you by providing financial education opportunities, one-on-one counsel, key resources, and engaging you in discussions about estate planning and giving.

The Bible is clear that we are stewards; we are managing everything for the owner, God.  Riverbend’s Financial Ministry goal is to help you discover and follow God’s wisdom regarding personal finances in such a way that it transforms personal financial behaviors, fosters more fruitful lives and leads us to exist not just for ourselves but for Christ and the world. The desired outcome will be a closer relationship with Christ, freedom from debt and consumerism, healthier relationships and the joy of generous living.

Financial education opportunities

Throughout the year, we offer various classes / seminars including:

  • PocketWatch – Financial Fitness Classes

  • Everybody Needs One – Estate Planning Seminar

  • Unlocking Social Security – Taking the Mystery out of Social Security

  • Financial Peace University – Handling Your Money Classes

Financial coaching

Sessions with a trained financial coach are available to give direction to
members or regular attendees. One-on-one coaching provides an
opportunity to receive personal and confidential guidance. Sessions are
in a grace-filled environment whether you are in a crisis, reducing financial
stress or desiring godly financial management skills.

Gift and estate planning

If God has blessed you with abundance, we would like to help you steward that well.  Please contact us to discuss charitable planning alternatives and special ways to give.
