Personal Ministries
Updated: Jul 4, 2013
The purpose of Personal Ministries is to find God’s lost children and bring them home to the church and to eternal life. The North River church has the followiing ministries to accomplish this:

   Prison Ministry: To reach inmates in the Hamilton County Jail and other prison systems, the North River Church has a very active ministry of providing Bibles, Bible studies, and other written material. Working with the prison chaplain, contacts are made with inmates who are interested in knowing Jesus Christ in their lives.

  North River Bible School: Invitations to take Bible studies are distributed in various venues and personal contacts in North Chattanooga and Red Bank areas. When possible, each Bible student is personally visited. Native Indian Bible Studies are also offered.

  Bible Study and Prayer Meeting: Every Tuesday, Pastor Michael Pettengill holds an open question & answer session at 6:00 p.m. Prayer Meeting follows at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend. Meetings are located downstairs in the Community Room at the church.
