LIFE EVENTS

For All of Life's Events

Whether you are celebrating or mourning; taking a step in your faith journey, or wanting to grow in your marriage, we are here for you!

BAPTISM​

We believe baptism is an outward expression of the inward change that has taken place as a result of a choice to follow Christ. Baptism is available on a request basis at any time during the year. If you would like to take this meaningful next step in your faith, you can email baptism@riverwood.cc for more information.

PREMARITAL

Once a year we offer a 4 week course we call 
Prepared to Last. It includes teaching on different aspects of marriage and engaging discussions with a mentor couple that will help prepare you for a healthy dynamic marriage relationship. At the conclusion of the course there is also a private session with the mentor couple whom the engaged couple has gotten to know over the 4-week course.
 

The dates for Prepared to Last in 2020 are
Jan. 26, Feb. 2, Feb 9, & Feb 23 

 

To register for the course or for more information contact marriage@riverwood.cc.

WEDDINGS

If you are a regular attendee at Riverwood, the pastors here would be honored to perform your wedding ceremony. We desire for you and your future spouse to have a lifelong, fulfilling marriage and for this reason one of the requirements to be married by our pastors is that you participate in the “Prepared to Last” course. Once you register for the spring or fall course and are interested in requesting a Riverwood Pastor to officiate your wedding ceremony or to rent one of our venues, contact us at marriage@riverwood.cc.

CHILD DEDICATION

Baby or child dedication is a ceremony we have in our services where parents make a public commitment to do their part in nurturing their child spiritually in a home where faith will be a priority. It is also a celebration of the child’s life with an opportunity to pray a blessing over the child and his or her future.
Email us to schedule your Child Dedication.

MARRIAGE

Whether you are engaged, have been married for years, or are struggling in your marriage we would love to offer encouragement and opportunities to grow your relationship to be healthy and vibrant. During our 10 week Small Group experiences we host Marriage Small Groups to help couples build strong marriages and connect with other couples who are in similar life stages. For more information contact marriage@riverwood.cc.

FUNERALS

The death of someone you love ushers in a cascade of complex emotions, and planning a funeral or memorial service to honour, remember, and celebrate loved ones can feel overwhelming. We are here to provide support, comfort and to help you design a meaningful commemoration and celebration of your loved one’s life. To begin planning and to arrange for one of our pastors to lead the service, email Pastor Carolyn.
