2020 Annual Report

Many things changed in twenty-twenty, the rescue mission did not.

A Letter From Pastor Chris

Although 2020 was a very unique year, Jesus’ rescue mission continued to move forward! Instead of backing down from the challenges we faced, Riverbank Church stepped up and saw God move in incredible ways. 

Because of God’s goodness and your faithfulness, this year at Riverbank Church we consistently saw people give their lives to Jesus, take next steps in their faith by going public in baptism, serve, and engage in the rescue mission in unique ways.

Thank you for your faithful giving and participation.

Remember, even though it seems like it’s falling apart, it’s actually falling into place. God has a plan, and we can trust it.

Let’s make 2021 a year of refocusing on the things that matter most. This starts with Jesus and His rescue. I can’t wait to see how this work continues!!
