Riverbend Church was birthed out of a deep sense of need for a missional, neighborhood based expression of Jesus’ Church on Bend’s west side. Since launching as a group of friends praying together for the Kingdom in Bend as in Heaven, Riverbend has flourished into a family that is living out the way of Jesus together.
By God’s grace, tons of prayer, and the generosity of a hundred year old church, Riverbend recently inherited one of the most iconic church buildings in Bend. As a result, Riverbend is anchored in the community, and is stepping into the Church’s ancient calling to be a redemptive witness of Jesus’ Kingdom to the city.
