Riverbend Lutheran Church Sermon Podcasts Online




Engaging Grace is a weekly podcast of sermons by Reverend Sye Van Maanen at Riverbend Lutheran Church, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Pastor Sye is an engaging and compelling preacher, delivering sermons consistent with the Lutheran teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a member congregation of Lutheran Church Canada, we believe, teach and confess that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant word of God and that the Book of Concord is an accurate formulation of our beliefs as Lutherans.

March 15th, 2020, we released our 500th podcast!
For what will be 10 years this September, we have been podcasting Pastor Sye’s Sunday sermons under the title “Engaging Grace”.

Why this title?
Our goal is to make the podcast easily accessible to individuals seeking faithful Christian messages.
To that end, we believe it is important to make the podcast distinctly recognizable. The “Engaging Grace” brand and album art are intended to reflect Lutheran doctrine as well as the character of Pastor Sye and his preaching.

We began podcasting in September 2010, and as we approach our 10th anniversary, the podcast has surpassed 75,000 downloads.

In celebration of this milestone, we have expanded from podcasting on iTunes, to now include both Google Play and Spotify.
Sermons are available on these platforms under the “Engaging Grace” title or can be accessed directly on this page

Congratulations, Riverbend, on making this milestone possible through your support of this ministry!
