Growth Path is North River’s process to help people become fully developed worshippers and servants of Christ. Each class is designed to take next steps in your relationship with Jesus. Classes 101, 201 and 301 include some preparation on your own (viewing presentations at your convenience), and then a Zoom discussion and Q&A time with facilitators. Classes can be taken in sequence or at your preference following the completion of Belong-101.
The Belong-101 class is a basic introduction to our church family. People come to us from a wide array of church backgrounds, and this interactive class provides an opportunity to get a clear understanding of North River Church. You will learn about our unique calling as a church, including our history, purpose, beliefs and structure. You will also learn what it means to be a Christian, and what it means to be a member of North River. This class is a prerequisite for becoming a member.
The next Belong-101 class will be held soon. Please check back.
The Bless-301 class takes you on a journey of discovering how God has uniquely designed you for serving ministry. The bible teaches every member is a minister, and equipped with God-given Spiritual Gifts, Personality and God Energized Passions. You will discover where and how you can make a difference in life and ministry, for your good and God’s glory. Belong-101 is a prerequisite to taking this class. .
The next Bless-301 class is TBD.
The Become-201 class will provide you with foundational skills helpful in growing in your relationship with Jesus.

Download the Bible App
One of the best ways we can grow spiritually is to spend time reading God’s Word (the Bible) regularly. The Bible App is an easy way to get the Bible into your hands through all your devices so you can read the Bible whenever or wherever you are.
Small Groups–church is a place to belong, not just a place to go.
Small Groups are gatherings of 3-12 people who meet regularly. Some groups meet at the church, others in homes. There are groups for women, men, or mixed – some focusing on family, others on Bible study, and some are activity-centered. They provide a place to fit in and build relationships. They encourage and support each other, laugh and listen, discuss challenges and pray about them, and grow together in their understanding of God. They’re friends who “do life” together.
