Annual Report | Riverbank Church

6 Years ago Riverbank Church launched with a clear, God-given vision - A RESCUE MISSION,
to reach Vermont and New Hampshire for Jesus.

As I look back on 2016, this vision is literally
becoming a reality! Not only did we move into our equipping and sending worship center, BUT we saw hundreds say yes to Jesus and go public in water baptism!

We literally see this RESCUE MISSION play out day after day and week after week - in Groups, Riverbank Kids, Students, Celebrate Recovery and of course on the weekends. It humbles me and reminds me that we are a part of a MOVEMENT OF GOD!

“I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “HERE I AM. SEND ME.” -Isaiah 6:8

As we look FORWARD in 2017, I believe that more people will be ALL IN for this RESCUE MISSION. ALL IN with people taking their next faith step. ALL IN by serving others. ALL IN by loving our community. As we go ALL IN together, HE will grow HIS church! Twenty-seventeen will be the best year yet at Riverbank Church. I hope and pray that you are ready to be ALL IN.

-Pastor Chris Goeppner
