Planning to VIsit New River soon?

Where do you start?

We offer TWO Sunday Service Celebrations: 8:30am & 10:30am. 

Please dress casually.   We are a pretty relaxed group who takes God seriously, but we don't worry about what kind of clothes you wear.  

Our parking lot can fill up fast, so we encourage you to arrive at least 5 minutes early.

If you plan to visit with children, our Nursery, for newborns - age 2, is available during both services. Our Grow Zone for children 3 years old - grade 5 is available during our 10:30am service.  There are two classes in Grow Zone: 3 year old - Kindergarten and 1st grade - 5th grade.  Your children are welcome to sit with you during service or enjoy our Grow Zone.  (kids typically LOVE it!)  You will not need to worry about dressing up because our dress is casual.  Our celebrations typically last about 1 1/2 hours.  We enjoy great music and a teaching from God's Word.  

Then, if you like what you see, come back in the evening for our special newcomer's group.  It's a small group designed specifically for you and it meets every Sunday night at 6pm.  

We'd also like to invite you to sign up for one of our "basics" classes.  Each class is only one hour long, and by the time you complete these four classes, you will have a pretty good idea about who we are and what we are all about.  To get signed up, talk to a member of our hospitality team at the welcome kiosk.

That's really about it!

Christianity is a team sport.  We truly believe that we are better together than we are apart.  That is why we encourage everyone to get involved in two things:  First, we want you to get connected with at least one other Christian who will intentionally encourage you to grow in your friendship with Jesus.  This is called a "discipling relationship" and we all need at least one.  Second, we encourage you to plug into a ministry of New River where you can discover the thrill of being used by God to impact others.
