Hello Riverbend Family,
I am excited about what is going on around the Bend. God brought us to Riverbend about four years ago. With no clear direction as to where God wanted us to serve and seeing that I had been in youth ministry since 2001; I thought it would be fitting to try helping in the youth group, but God had other plans. So as I continued to look and pray, I found myself in 4:12 (our 5-6 grade ministry). Once there God started moving on my heart about ministering to younger students, which in the past has been way out of my comfort zone. God has shown me in the past couple of years the extreme need for children’s ministry. So for the past four years as I have been here just helping and waiting God has been orchestrating everything out for such a time as this. Just as Proverbs 20:24 states, “God ordains our steps”. God provides and directs us to His best plan.
