Q: Is church cancelled?
A: Not at all! As we follow state guidelines of not meeting in large groups, we have decided to move our church online. Our services will be streamed on our Facebook page every Sunday at 10am (www.facebook.com/riverwaychurch/) and then you will be able to watch On Demand if you are not able to join live. You can visit our website at riverwaychurch.com to access that content.
Q: How long until we can meet together again in person?
A: We will continue to evaluate the appropriate time to resume gathering together and will adhere to the guidance from the federal, state and county officials. This is a very fluid situation and we will begin gathering as soon as it is safe for you and your family.
Q: What other ministries are impacted?
A: Every ministry at Riverway is impacted by this. All kids, youth, and adult ministries will not be meeting in person for the foreseeable future. However, our team is working on continuing to engage with you and your family digitally throughout this season. Please check the website and make sure you follow our social media pages to stay up to date on materials coming out.
Q: What about Small Groups and other off-campus gatherings?
A: All Small Groups will not meet in person during this season. However, we will be providing ways for groups to continue to connect digitally. Skype groups and Facebook groups will be set up for people to continue to connect. Please contact your group leader to find out how to access those groups.
Q: How are we ministering to our local communities?
A: In addition to offering all of our church content online, we are currently working on some service/volunteer options for people who want to help serve those in need. Please stay connected to us as we announce some of those opportunities.
Q: How can I give financially during this time?
A: Online giving is available at riverwaychurch.com/give. This provides you a secure and safe way to contribute to the ongoing ministry of Riverway. If you prefer to give by check you can mail it to the church office (P.O. Box 36, Champlin, MN 55316). We are grateful for your faithful and generous giving as we walk through this time of uncertainty together. While our meeting location may be online, our mission to connect people to Jesus remains the same.
Q: What if I have a need or suggestion?
A: If you have a need or any ideas or suggestions on how we can better minister to you or our community, please reach out to us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
