Our church calendar is not full of meetings and programs. We value the time our members have to know and serve their neighbors in and around Atchison. We develop ministries to encourage stronger discipleship through the application of the gospel to every facet of our lives. We support various mission efforts because we want to see Jesus Christ treasured beyond our city and county. Come, participate and honor the Lord with us.
We believe that the Bible is God's Word and the source of truth that leads to Jesus Christ for salvation and guides every believer to live for Him. We encourage every Christian to delve deeply into the Scriptures personally and then engage others in discipleship through small group and one-on-one Bible study. We offer a variety of group studies. And we will meet with anyone who seeks to know what the Bible is all about.
Agros is a regional mission ministry that originated at Riverbend. The mission's aim is finding, training, & supporting small-town pastors in Northeast Kansas & Northwest Missouri.

We offer children's church for newborn - first grade. Each Sunday class includes biblical teaching and activities during the sermon.
Help & Hope Ministry
We seek to serve others, like yourself, in any way we can. We have members who can assist with a variety of challenges including filing taxes, developing a budget, or even helping a child who struggles with a subject at school. We also understand that everyone faces problems in life that leave us feeling hopeless. We want to help. We do not provide legal advice or licensed counseling. We do not charge for any service. We rely on God's Word to guide us as we live out the gospel among our Atchison neighbors. If you'd like to talk with someone about a difficulty you're facing, contact Pastor Bob using the link below. He will work to connect you with a friend to walk with you on the difficult path.
We cultivate partnerships with various missionaries who share a commitment to planting and strengthening gospel-loving, local churches. God has placed these servants in downtown Kansas City, Northern New England, the schemes of Scotland, and Asia. Each week we highlight one of them during our pastoral prayer time. The best way to learn more about them is to come and pray for them with us.
