VBS 2019 - July 22 - 26th.  VBS registration will open on Monday May 27th. 
Public registration started on Monday, May 27 2019.  So don’t delay! Register now for volunteers AND participants! We would love to have all the help we can to make this a “Roar-ing” success! Life is wild & God is good!

At Roar, kids discover that God is good even when life get wild! Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, make and devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Wild Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes with the Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned. Kids at Roar VBS will join in supporting a special African missions project.

VBS Up-date: God is so GOOD!
Thank you to everyone who registered their children and volunteered to lead and help at VBS this year.  It looks like we will have enough people to run both the Elementary VBS and the Preschool VBS, but we can still use more help, so if you are still interested, please sign up as a volunteer or speak to Kathy.   If you’d like to register your children (ages 4-12) or volunteer, please visit our church website and follow the links.

Music Programs– Music & Choir Rehearsals are taking a break until Fall. Thanks to all those musicians and choir members who took part in our Holy Week services! If you are interested in joining the RLC Choir in the fall, we are looking for anyone who is interested in singing, whether experienced in a choir setting or not. All are welcome! Stay tuned for more info coming at the end of the summer. 

Parking Stalls in back alley
Please leave the 2 parking stalls open, labelled Secretary & Pastor, on Sunday mornings, as it gives some of our less mobile parishioners easier access to the building. Thank you for your consideration and respect in this matter.

Please note that Riverbend Lutheran Church is trying to be a scent free environment.  Please keep this in mind as you prepare for worship on Sundays. Thank you.
