For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

What are the Riverwood Care challenges?

Each month there will be a Care Challenge proposed for that month in the welfare section of our weekly ecclesial newsletter.

 

The challenge will outline a simple task to be performed in that month, with some suggestions, that everyone at Riverwood can engage in - from retiree to teen, from mums & dads to aunty  and uncles.

 

The benefits of these challenges will be magnified the more everyone joins in.

This initiative is designed to enhance a closer relationship with God, His Word and with each other. We are regularly exhorted to work on these relationships and love the ecclesia. Yet often, we wonder how to put this into everyday practice.

 

The aim of these challenges is to put these lofty principles into simple, edifying activities we can all do.

 

It will raise awareness of how everyday acts can cultivate these relationships and even nurture new ones. Who knows, you could be embracing your next new ‘good habit’ this month!


Rising to the Challenge of Care is everyone’s responsibility & privilege!


 Our Riverwood Care group welcomes your Care Challenge suggestions.

O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord
require of you
but to do justice, and to
LOVE KINDNESS
and to walk humbly with
your God?

CARE CHALLENGE

MAY 2021

This May call or send a message to three Riverwood members you haven’t caught up with since Covid began.
 

With personal connections beginning to re-ignite post restrictions, each of us can promote, enrich, and widen these personal connections in this simple way! Perhaps send a cheery text “hello, I’m wondering how you are?” or share an encouraging thought via Whatsapp, post a card or note or even place a heartening message in someone’s pigeonhole. Try your skills using some old-school cards or note paper provided in the foyer of the hall.
