Easter is Coming!

April 9, 2020

by Erin Bird

In case you didn't know, this is Holy Week in the Christian calendar. Normally, liturgical churches are holding services almost every evening of the week, but the coronavirus has put most of those plans on hold.

However, the presence of a pandemic doesn't mean this can't still be a meaningful week. Here are some ideas to make this weekend full of worshipand connection with your God:

Just because you are cooped up inside doesn't mean this has to be a wasted weekend. Find ways to connect with Jesus and thank Him for what He did for you through the cross.Easter Sunday

We have a unique and memorable sermon planned for Easter Sunday as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Rather than watch me preach on video for 35 minutes like usual, we have turned this week's sermon into a short film. We want to encourage you to not only attend with your family, but to invite someone to attend "with" you for this unique experience.

To invite someone, all you need to do is send a friend a text, email, or direct message on their favorite social media platform. The link to share with them is https://online.weareriverwood.org.

We also encourage you to make a general invitation on your social media platforms. Riverwood is active on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, so go to the social media platforms you regularly use and share Riverwood's invitation which you can find in our feed.

Let's make this a memorable Easter, not simply because we were forced to participate online, but by truly worshiping Jesus and inviting others to hear the life-changing news of the gospel.

It doesn't matter to us if you:

  • are a Wartburg student or a grandparent,
  • vote Democrat or Republican,
  • are married, divorced, or single,
  • have gone to church for years or haven't been to church in years,
  • make $100,000/yr. or wonder how you're going to pay rent this month,
  • or fear your past mistakes make you unlovable to God or others.

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we want to help you become who God has created you to be.
