Christmas Service This Sunday!

9 AM AND 11 AM

We are excited about our special Christmas Service this Sunday! There will be two services (9 and 11 AM) and we will be featuring our kids choir, adult choir, orchestra, original songs, and dramatic presentation! 

Childcare will be offered at both services.

We are encouraging our Intown and Thrive Ministries and Northwest Communities to attend the 9 AM service in order to help with space and parking needs.

Security in the FLC

Dear Family, 
We would like to take a moment to share important information regarding our security policy at the Family Life Center (FLC) on Sundays. We aim to ensure a safe and secure environment for our children, members, and visitors. To achieve this, we have implemented a policy prohibiting anyone from entering the FLC before noon without a children's claim card. 
We appreciate your cooperation in following these guidelines. Our small security team works hard to ensure everyone is safe and secure. By complying with this request, we can make their job easier and more enjoyable as they serve our church community. 
If you need access to the FLC before noon, please text Sheila McPhilamy at 404-379-1125, and she will help you enter the building. For luncheons and other activities after service (food delivery, room setup, etc.), advance arrangements can be made by contacting
We thank you for your cooperation and understanding and look forward to seeing you on Sunday. 
Best regards, 
Melissa Tulloch

Thank You From YES!

Thank you, North River Family, for a powerful year of service closed with Family Meal Sharing and MUST Mobile Pantry Night this past week! Last night (Wednesday), 25 North River volunteers served 136 families at the MUST Neighborhood Pantry. Last Saturday, many North River teams delivered meals to families across Marietta to help them thrive over winter break. Other families were provided with gift cards you all gave generously through our HOPEww chapter's Angel Tree collection. 50 families were served, honored, and remembered with this support- thank you! Special thanks to our HOPEww chapter and Noelle Broyles for the facilitation of gift cards and deep care for the families. Check out pictures from our December service initiatives and the service highlights. We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year [of service]!
