What Is Baptism and Why Do We Do It?

We’ve just celebrated Easter, but how do we respond to God’s saving work through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ? When we read the story of the early Christians, they got baptized… so what is baptism and why do we do it?

Worship Gathering Director Jake Epley teaches from Acts 2 on the biblical practice of baptism and publicly declaring faith in Jesus.

Forward with Boldness (FORWARD #4)

According to Barna, Americans pray for their family, for guidance, for health and wellness, and even to express thanks. But one thing they don’t pray for – boldness.

Maybe it’s because we are already bold. But more likely, we don’t pray for boldness because we like our lives safe and comfortable.

But if Riverwood is going to be a church after God’s heart, we need to take a page out of the early church’s book and pray for boldness. If you are curious about what this looks like, or how one even begins to pray a “bold” prayer like this, listen in as Pastor Erin Bird walks us through a story found in Acts chapters 3 & 4.

Forward with Generosity (FORWARD #3)

Money. (Yep, we went there!) Why do churches seem to always talk about money?

Well, we can’t tell you why other churches talk about money so much. But at Riverwood, we don’t talk about it as much as we probably should, but when we do, we look at not what we can get FROM you as much as what God wants FOR you. And we believe  God wants you to be generous like Him.

So listen in as Pastor Erin Bird teaches from the book of Acts about the joy that can be found through generosity.
