Join us at the church building Sunday mornings at 9am & 11am for our Celebrations!  In person prayer begins at 10:30 in classroom 3.

  • Grow Zone for children 3yrs old through 5th grade is offered at the 9am celebration (Check-in children on arrival in the lobby). Children join their parents in service until they are dismissed to Grow Zone after worship and prayer. On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate communion and the Grow Zone children are dismissed to class after communion.
  • The Nursery for little ones up to age 3 is available during both celebrations Sunday morning (parents can drop off before they enter the sanctuary or at anytime throughout the Celebration).
  • The 9am Celebration will stream live on Facebook, YouTube, and the Live Stream page of this website for those who wish join in from home.

go sunday

Our goal is to serve Manchester and the surrounding areas as we carry the presence, power, and compassion of the Spirit of Christ. The plan is to gather at the church at 9 AM, pray, and break out into service groups that will mobilize to different assignments. After serving, we will return to the church for a time of prayer, worship, and a cookout celebration. This is going to be amazing! Sign ups will be available in the church common area beginning Sunday, July 17th.

New River church is celebrating 25 years!

We invite you to visit the 25th Anniversary Page to see how we are celebrating and to reserve your spot for the banquet to be held on Saturday, September 24th.
