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 (first Thursdays only in July and August). 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.
