Like many church plants, Riverwood Church in Waverly, IA has been in temporary rental facilities since church planter Erin Bird launched it in 2014. Currently meeting at the county fairgrounds, they only have access on Sundays, with two or three Sundays not having any access due to the fair and other rental groups.
In May 2020, Converge North Central was the epicenter of all that has come from George Floyd's death. Amid that devastation, God's Spirit poured out as people came to Christ and were baptized. Converge from across the country supported the Rebuild Relief fund with donations totaling over $25,000. Thank You!
These gifts from God have been redistributed and initially were used for some short term clean-up and meeting needs from the neighborhoods. As additional funds came in, God continues to use His resources and people toward long-term Kingdom building flowing directly out of that initial turmoil. God is at work! Converge North Central is thankful for our many Pastors and churches who stepped up and demonstrated mercy, grace, and being the hands and feet of Jesus through this challenging time.
