The Caring Connection Team can help coordinate meals, visits, phone calls, cards, and rides to church and medical appointments.

North River is a community that deeply cares for each other’s needs. One of the ways we do this is by bringing together those in need with those who have items or services available—we call it Haves & Needs.
In the book of Acts, we see a Christ-following community that lived together, prayed together, and shared everything in common. Like the early church in Acts, at North River, we want to actively meet needs in our community. Our Haves & Needs listings help us to do just that by bringing together those who can provide a specific service or item with those who are in need.
If you are a regular participant in our North River community, we invite you to join our Haves & Needs Group to see current needs, find out what’s available, and respond as God leads you
