GEt Connected Through serving & life groups!

Want to be part of something truly epic? There is definitely SPACE FOR YOU as New River works hard to transform our community with the love of Jesus.  We'd LOVE for you to join us!  If you'd like to join a life group or are interested in serving in one of our ministries, leave your info here and one of our leaders will get in touch with you! (No worries, it's secure and we're the only ones who see it.)

Check out meeting times of current Life Groups here!

Discipleship partners

To help you get the most out of our Bible study this season, we are encouraging you to link up with a discipleship partner.  By this, we mean that you and one or two friends agree to meet together weekly to go over the materials that we are studying in our Sunday celebrations.  If you are part of a Life Group, it is ideal if you connect with someone in your group.  However, you do not need to be part of a group to do this.  Once you have figured out who your partner will be, please let us know by filling in the information at this link so that we can encourage you in the journey. 

Eyes on Jesus!
