Adults are looking to make the most of their marriages and families as well as leaving a lasting impression on this world. The Men’s and Women’s Ministries are an avenue to meeting these needs. Our Prayer Ministry is active and growing. They have a real heart for people and desire to meet needs through their faith in God to answer prayers requested on the behalf of others. Community Involvement is another priority in the heart and purpose of River Bend Baptist Church. We reach out to our community several times a year in various ways.
The men of River Bend grow in Christ and in their friendship with others through Bible Studies, prayer groups, and activites such as:
- Golf tournaments
- Skeet shooting
- Bible Studies
We encourage each other and search for wisdom from the Bible to help us become better fathers, honor our commitments to our marriages and careers, as well as other aspects of our lives. Call John Boaz and get connected at 281-620-0739.
The Women’s Ministry’s purpose is to develop and strengthen relationships while helping women grow closer to the Lord. We accomplish this through activities such as:
- Bible Studies
- Discussion groups
- Social opportunities like Table Top
- International relationships
“Table Top – What’s that?” you ask.
This is a letter of explanation.
“Table Top” is an annual event sponsored by the RBBC Women’s Ministry open to all women of the church, their friends, and the community. The evening includes entertainment and food. A delicious meal is caterered and the men of the church serve as waiters (bow ties provided). Save the date now so you don’t miss out on this fun evening ~ Tuesday, September 29 at 7:00 PM. Childcare is available by reservation for children ages birth to grade 5.
Women in the church agree to decorate a table (hence the name, Table Top) and act as hostess for that table. The decorated tables, prepared the night before, reflect a Bible verse or thought and are designed to bring you joy. It is a real treat to be surrounded by all the beauty of the vastly different tables, and to bond with other women enjoying the same beauty, which in a small way replicates the unlimited beauty our God has created with the words of his mouth. Each hostess prepares a special gift in keeping with her table theme for each of her guests to take home as a memento of the evening.
Door prizes from local people and businesses are also given. To be included in the drawing, fill out the back of your ticket and drop it in the door prize basket when you arrive.

Prayer is a foundational element in the life of River Bend Baptist Church. The prayer ministry encourages us to allow God to work when we are worried and other Christians to intercede in times of need on our behalf. Prayer requests are sent out weekly to the prayer team. This group is dedicated to praying over the specific reqeusts and needs. If you have a prayer need, e-mail Pray@RiverBendBC.org.
We are actively involved in the lives of those in our church, but the community is another area where we want to show God’s love. Throughout the year we invest our energies into activities that benefit the community such as:
- Sponsoring local children’s sports teams
- City of Fulshear events
- Bike for Mike
