Fear & Anxiety

Many people globally are living with fear due to the coronavirus, while many Americans are living with anxiety over the upcoming Presidential election. And this doesn’t include the hard things happening in many people’s lives personally that are causing stress, worry, and more.

Thankfully, God’s Word speaks into our fear and anxiety, helping to bring peace. Listen in as one of Riverwood’s elders, Ed Pavelec, takes us to several passages in Scripture to bring encouragement during our troubled times.

Most of us would rather serve ourselves before others. This week, Pastor Erin Bird talks about the importance of serving.

Why Elders? (Elders #1)

There are SO many types of church governance out there in Christendom: deacons, councils, boards, dictatorships, church staffs, and more. So why is Riverwood choosing to move to an elder form of leadership?

In this first message in a three part series, Pastor Erin Bird explains why he believes Riverwood will benefit from installing elders to help continue the mission of inviting the spiritually disconnected to find and follow Jesus.

Prayer (Disciplined #4)

Ever felt like prayer is boring? Or have you felt like you couldn’t pray because of sin in your life and/or past? Or maybe you’re simply afraid to pray because it has just been so long since you’ve tried to talk with God and you fear He might be a bit upset that you’ve been ignoring Him?

In this masterful sermon on the spiritual discipline of prayer, guest teacher Patrick Ray walks us through Romans 8, showing us why we shouldn’t let shame or fear or boredom keep us from this God-given gift called prayer. So if you want to grow in your conversations with God, listen in to this fourth part of the Disciplined series.
