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.

Joy in the Journey (Genuine Joy #9)

All of us are on a journey. On our journey through life, we encounter difficulties, struggles, obstacles, and even our own mistakes. How do we make it through the journey of life, and to do it with joy? Ed Pavelec, one of Riverwood’s elders, walks us through Philippians 3:12-4:1, showing us the encouragement the Apostle Paul gave his original readers so they might find joy in the journey.

Supplication (ACTS of Prayer #4)

If you are like most people, you don’t want to be seen as a bothersome pest, whether at work, home, or in your relationship with God. And yet, Jesus invites His followers to persist in prayer, almost to the point of seeming like a spiritual pest to God.

In this last message in the ACTS of Prayer sermon series, Pastor Erin Bird helps us see why persistent prayer isn’t bothersome to God, but rather honoring and glorifying. So listen in to learn the importance and power of proper supplication.

Perseverance (Disciplined #8)

For many Jesus-followers, engagement with the spiritual disciplines can be tiring, frustrating, and difficult. Whether it is prayer, Bible reading, fasting, or something else, they find themselves drifting toward comfort and disengagement, eventually quitting the spiritual discipline altogether.

But what if your best days are found on the other side of your spiritual funk?

In this final message in the Disciplined series, Pastor Erin Bird teaches from James 1:2-4 about the power of perseverance, and how your greatest days and spiritual maturity will be found through the struggle of the disciplines.
