A 40-day journey in jesus' school of prayer

When Jesus ascended into Heaven, He left behind a group of bewildered disciples who did not know what to do.  Jesus gave them a simple command: "Wait". These first disciples spent the next ten days praying together and waiting. On the Day of Pentecost, God's Spirit baptized these believers in a mighty way and the world has not been the same since. (You can read about it in Acts 2.). 


This global pandemic has left all of us feeling stunned. What do we do next? "Wait". Here at New River Church we believe God is asking us to pray for a season before we begin Sunday services again. Psalm 27:8 says, "My heart says of You, 'Seek His face!' Your face, Lord, will I seek."  


Some of us will choose to stay home for a while longer, others will be meeting at the church building, but we can all be in prayer together. One way that we can do that is by following this little 40-Day prayer guide. Taken from Jesus' teaching, we think it will bless you.

Mobile Foodshare

The Mobile Foodshare truck visits the New River Church parking lot every other Wednesday from 12pm - 12:30pm. This mobile pantry provides fruits & vegetables to those in need.


In response to COVID-19 we will not serve snacks and coffee in the lobby before the truck's arrival until further notice. Please do not enter the building.

Per Foodshare policy, we will hand out disposable paper numbers which will be available beginning at 11am. No need to line up as we will call each number one at a time to approach the truck to receive two pre-filled bags of food. Please practice social distancing while you wait.

Thank you for your understanding during this time!
