Planning to VIsit New River soon?

Where do you start?

Join us on Sunday mornings at 9am for our Celebration! You can plan to be with us for about an hour and a half. We enjoy worship, prayer, and a teaching from God's Word.


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 10 minutes early.


If you plan to visit with children, our Grow Zone is available for 3yrs olds - 5th grade (kids typically LOVE it!). Parents, check-in your children in the lobby on arrival. Your children will join you in the sanctuary, then will be dismissed to class after worship & prayer. At the end of the Celebration, you will pick up your child/children from their classroom. There is no Grow Zone on the first Sunday of the month when we celebrate Communion. Children remain in the sanctuary with their parents. The Nursery is available for newborns - age 3. Parents can drop their little ones off before the Celebration or at any time throughout.


 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. You can fill out an interest form here.
