NEw River Cares

Our deacons run a ministry that provides for the physical needs of people.  Whether it's helping to pay a bill, or putting food on the table, or baking cookies for someone who has been stuck inside for awhile, our deacons lead our church in caring for others.  If you have a need, you can contact our church office 860.648.2970 and we will direct you to the right help.  You are loved!

Good Samaritan Fund

The Good Samaritan Fund (GSF) is NRC's benevolent fund. From the generosity of the NRC community, the funds are made available to people who find themselves in a tight financial situation. If you or someone you know has a need, the GSF may be able to help. The GSF is used to meet various types of needs such as: rent, utilities, oil, food, etc. Checks are written to meet such needs and never to "cash" or the requestor directly. The GSF is available to anyone. Requests are handled confidentially and the account is maintained by the deacons. Should you have a request, please contact the deacons directly.  Please consider contributing to the GSF as part of your regular offering.  

Food Pantry

We stock a food pantry that is open Tuesday through Friday from 9am-3pm.  Donated items can also be brought into the pantry during this time or on Sunday mornings.  The Food Pantry is open to anyone in need. There is no formal request to make or any forms to complete. In addition, if you know someone who is in need, you can also feel free to come and fill up a bag to deliver to them.
