Riverwood Community Church started in 1995 by local community members who felt led to plant a new church. It is located just outside the city limits of Cannon Falls, MN near Lake Byllesby.  Riverwood’s congregation is made up of individuals of all ages and walks of life.  We have a strong community of younger families worshipping alongside mature adults and all ages in between.  Our smaller community affords us the opportunity to break generational lines in order to truly grow with Christ.  We pride ourselves on knowing each other and supporting one another in the joys and sorrows of life.  Additionally, we have many involved in leading and supporting the day to day operations of the church.  While we are led by an Elder Board that is composed of men, women are valued and hold leadership roles in many other areas of the church.  Our congregation has a “can do” attitude, and often comes together to serve others and the Lord.

The heart in everything we do is to bring people into a relationship with Jesus Christ and to help them grow in that relationship.  Our mission is to Go Up, Go Deep and Go Out.  Go Up toward the goal of knowing Christ fully through weekly worship, sermons, and prayer meetings.  Go Deep together in our walk with Christ through small groups, book clubs, bible studies, conferences, men’s and women’s ministries, and programming for our children and teens.  Finally, Go Out building relationship bridges in our community and world that lead people to Christ through summer community children’s programming, grief share, Cannon Falls food shelf, and local, national, and global missions.
