Violins and Blessings at Riverbend

Lucas, Rebecca, and Diane at Riverbend

We offer a time of spiritual and musical nourishment at the Residence at Riverbend, on the first and fourth Thursdays of each month at 2pm. Called “Violins and Blessings,” it’s a half-hour of music, scripture, and prayer from Rev. Rebecca, Diane, and other musicians. Invite your loved ones at Riverbend to join, and come sit with them.
