Connect Group registration is open!!
What are Connect Groups at Riverwood? 
A group of people helping each other follow Jesus!  A Connect Group is simply a group of people who meet regularly to eat and pray together, help care for each other, and discuss their next steps in following Jesus.  It’s our hope that every person from Riverwood would be part of a Connect Group, because the way of Jesus can only be lived out with people, as they connect in community!
