To become a member of Riverwood Chapel a person must complete all three of the Discover Series Membership classes: Discover the Story - God's Plan for the World, Discover Riverwood - God's Plan for the Church and Discover Your Design - God's Plan for You. These classes are scheduled for October 7-8, 2017, January 20-21, 2018 and April 14-15, 2018. Class times and locations will be posted on our events pages three weeks before the scheduled class.
Membership in a local church is a formal act of affiliation. By becoming a member of Riverwood a person aligns themselves with our beliefs, attitudes, leadership, and mission. Of course someone can align themselves without becoming a member, and many choose to do so. Membership is, however, an additional step.
By becoming a member a person aligns themselves with Riverwood on a deeper level. As part of the process of membership a person covenants themselves to certain beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes. A member commits to Riverwood in gathering, giving, prayer, and service. By becoming a member a person is not only committing to these actions and attitudes, but they are also saying that they have become the spiritual responsibility of this local church. They are also saying they take responsibility for the health of this local church themselves.
