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.

Psalm 42 (Summer of Psalms #2)

This will be our first Sunday back for in-person gatherings! While we are excited to be together again, most of us have undoubtedly been through some turbulent times. To some extent, we’ve all encountered loss, grief, frustration, and suffering within the span of these last few months.

In this week’s message, Worship Leader Jake Epley will walk us through Psalm 42, a lament that teaches us that in the midst of depression and discouragement, our only hope is found in God alone who truly satisfies.

The Gospel and Work (The Everyday Gospel #13)

Our culture is very work-centered. When we meet someone for the first time, we often ask, “So what do you do for a living?” If someone is in college, we ask, “What’s your major and what do you hope to do with it?”

But did you know the story of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection changes our approach to work? This week at Riverwood Church, Worship Leader Jake Epley teaches from the book of Colossians about The Gospel and Work.
