Awaken Students!

The name of our student ministry is "Awaken".  We want to awaken students to a deep connection with God and help them discover the destiny with which He has created each one. 


We meet Thursday nights from 6:30-8:15pm at New River Church. Awaken is open to students entering 6th -12th grade.

Winter Retreat

Among the many events that our students enjoy, one of their favorites is the winter retreat.  In February we load the kids into a couple of vans and take them to Word of Life, Snow Camp in NY for a weekend retreat.  God has met many of our students on these life changing weekends!

the Hartford project

One of the other life changing events that our kids participate in is "The Hartford Project".  For one week each summer, our kids join students from many other churches and show God's love to the City of Hartford. They clean up playgrounds, serve food, and wash cars all to demonstrate God's love in practical ways.
