Sharing Life

New River is constantly hosting events and fellowships where everyone (members, regular attendees, visitors, and their friends) are invited to come and practice the ministry of “hanging out.”  Church softball games, ice cream socials, breakfasts before morning bible study, picnics, camp outs, and lots more.  These are times that are very unstructured and give us all plenty of time to really get to know one another and develop lasting friendships that will carry us through those difficult times in our lives where we really need each other.

  Another great tradition that dates back a long time at New River is that when a month contains a fifth Sunday, we all stay after the morning worship service, bring our favorite dish, and have a big meal together.  As you can see most fellowship at our church involves lots of food!
