Sunday Services:
Sunday, June 28th at 9:00 & 10:45 am
We are continuing to hold services in the church! We are very excited to be able to regather and we want to keep everyone safe and healthy! Due to state guidelines, we have a limited capacity in the sanctuary. We will be providing a Sign Up Genius to allow families to sign up for service (either in the sanctuary or in the overflow Commons area). There will be no formal children’s ministry programming for now; children will sit with their families and will be given activity bags. Sign up here:
Summer Family Picnics!
We will be doing monthly family picnics this summer! Join us after the 10:45 service on the front lawn of the church. Bring your own lunch, drinks, and chairs/blankets. Everyone is welcome!
Upcoming Picnic Dates:
Sunday, July 26th after 10:45 service
Sunday, August 30th after 10:45 service (please note the date change). We will follow this picnic with our annual baptism! More info to come.
Please be prepared for the church to look a bit different! We will be directing traffic in and out, providing hand sanitizer upon entry to the building, releasing people in limited numbers, and limiting the number of people in the restrooms at one time. Masks are recommended, but not required;  Riverwood volunteers and staff will be wearing masks and gloves. We would ask for grace and patience as we navigate this challenging season and do our best to keep everyone safe. We will have volunteers and signage posted all around the building to make things easier!
If the sign up gets filled, don’t worry! Services will continue to be streamed online. We would ask that if you or anyone in your household is ill to please stay home.
Riverwood is offering Virtual Small Groups! This is another way we can continue meeting together. Click here to see the available groups and sign up!

Updated Hours:
Monday 3:30-7:30 pm
Tuesday, 9:30-11:30 am
Here is some info on what to expect:

We are moving to a CURBSIDE model of service. Both existing and new clients are being asked to park along the curb on Main Street in front of the food shelf – please be sure to begin the line of vehicles all the way down to the four-way stop and WAIT in your vehicle until a volunteer brings a shopping list of available foods. Additional instructions will be given at this time. If you do not have a vehicle please wait on the green bench outside our front door and we will assist you. Please note that NO clients will be served inside the food shelf at this time.

If you are sick please DO NOT come to the food shelf – send an adult to get food on your behalf or call and we will do our best to make arrangements.

We will keep our Facebook page and our phone message (763-477-6098) current with any updates in food service.

Thank you for your patience as we understand that this is a different way of doing business at the food shelf. It will allow us to follow CDC guidelines while serving clients in a safe and orderly way and provide food with love for every table!
