Home Groups

Home Groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where a relational environment and better support for one another can take place. Considering that the early church worshipped in large settings in the synagogues as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one-another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church. Thus, we intentionally strive toward community through home groups.

why relational discipleship?

We have been created to live in community and not in isolation. Physically, we do live in a community, but spiritually, socially, and relationally we often live our lives in isolation. We find ourselves with no one to turn to when we have a major issue that has just surfaced in our life. Living in community affords us the opportunity to more wholly experience God through close relationships as we live life together, as we encourage and help one another, and as we study and live out God’s word together.

“We will create Biblical disciples in relational environments.”

MATTHEW 28:19-20


Riverbend's Definition of a Disciple 

And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19. We believe a disciple is someone who is committed to Following Jesus, who is committed to Being Changed by Jesus, and who is committed to Joining the Mission of Jesus.
