We want to see people come encounter and experience Jesus during our Sunday morning Gatherings. It doesn’t matter where you are in your story, we believe God wants you to experience Him and connect with others who are looking to do the same. We also know it can be awkward if its your first time at a new church. So take a look below to find out what to expect from your time at a Riverbend Sunday Gathering.
Timing: Our Sunday Gatherings start at 10:30 AM and last about an hour and five minutes.
Parking: We have off street parking and a designated area for visitors. There is also handicap accessability.
Entrance: Our main entrance is located in the central area of our building (795 Roble Rd, Allentown), and is marked by signs right off of the parking lot. We should have somebody there to welcome you and point you to where to go.
Cafe: In our cafe area, feel free to hang out, grab some coffee, tea, water or food (all free) that you can take into the Gathering with you (if you want). We also have an information table where you can get a welcome bag/gift, you can check your kids into our secure kids check in system, or talk to somebody to be prayed for if you need!
Kids Area (Foundations): We have a special area for Kids during the Gathering (6 months through 5th Grade), you can check your kids in through our secure check in system -- but at all times, kids and families are welcome into the Gathering together.
Gathering: During the Gathering we sing songs with a full band (normally), we hear from the Bible about how we can live by God's design in a way that is relevant to todays culture, we have a chance to respond to the message through giving and singing (do not feel obligated to give towards the mission if you are just checking Riverbend out), Then people will normally hang out in the cafe area and talk.
Other Questions: If you have any other questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to help you out!
