The Gospel Project

For Riverwood's Children's Ministry, it is all about Jesus. That is why we use The Gospel Project curriculum to teach our children the stories and truths found in God's word. The Gospel Project is a three-year journey through the entirety of Scripture, showing that every story centers around the cross.

For more information about The Gospel Project, check out:

"It's Just a Phase" Project

We believe that understanding the phase of life that each child is in will help families and Children's Ministry volunteers communicate God's truth in a way that each child can understand and respond to.

Download It's Just a Phase Booklet

That is why we use the It’s Just a Phase: So Don’t Miss It project by Reggie Joiner and Kristen Ivy to inform how we do Children’s Ministry at Riverwood. Each phase of a child’s life presents opportunities for the gospel and love of Jesus Christ to be made known. Click the image below to see how Riverwood aims to partner with parents in each phase.
