The vision of what was to become Riverwood church began in the Fall of 1993 as a small group of people met together with the support of Cornerstone Church in Redwing, MN and Chapel Hill Church in Eagan. In May of 1995, Pastor Jay Barr was called to be the first pastor-leader. The church was launched on October 12th, 1995, and began holding services in the Cannon Falls Elementary School. Land was purchased in September of 2003. Nine years later, the construction on our current building was completed and we moved in on Easter Sunday of 2012.
We are affiliated with a denominational group called Converge North Central which is part of Converge Worldwide. You can go to www.convergenorthcentral.org to learn more.
There are three important ways that we live out our mission:
Go Up together toward the goal of knowing Christ fully. (see Philippians 3:13-14)
Go Deep together in our walk with Christ. (see Ephesians 4:11-13)
Go Out together building relationship bridges in our community and world that lead people to Christ. (see Matthew 5:16)
