Riverwood Covenant Church began in the late 90’s because Plymouth Covenant Church Imagined what it would be like to have an impact in the Rockford/Greenfield area. That Imagined opportunity became reality in 2002, when Riverwood officially chartered as a congregation of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
The growing church began to Imagine what it would be like to be a body that connects with God and others, grows in Christ, and reaches the lost and hurting. We organized around those ideas, knowing that “the only thing that counts is faith, expressing itself in love” (Gal. 5:6).
Then we began to Imagine how we could impact the community, and in 2010 launched RiverWorks Community Development Organization, now serving hundreds each month in the area. Then the congregation Imagined having a place to call home, and built our first building in 2012. The congregation Imagined increasing in impact, and it grew to more than triple in size.
God has birthed new dreams, and now we are Imagining again. Over the next three years, we are raising funds and building ministry to bring this Imagining to reality!
We invite you to be part of this awesome, God-inspired opportunity!
