Welcome from Our Pastor
Dr. Robert Johnson
What does living in the real world mean for people of faith and good will?
What difference does belief in Jesus make in your daily life?
Have you been looking for a place to practice your faith that centers on the saving love of Jesus Christ and his call to serve the world?
Are you hoping to find a fellowship where you can be welcomed into a family of faith, whoever you are?
If these are your questions and your hopes, we think you will find your place with us at New Hanover Presbyterian Church. We are dedicated to finding thoughtful ways to understand and live out the teachings of Jesus. We do not insist on lock-step thinking or litmus-test living. We do believe that Christian faith will eventually lead us to heaven but leads us to others right now, and we seek to be a redemptive and beneficial member of our community now.
Interested? We hope you will join us for worship on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. or email me with your questions by clicking here.

As a mission project, members of New Hanover donated cleaning supplies and assembled them into buckets for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to give to refugee families being resettled into the Richmond area this year. New Hanover had learned from the IRC that some 30 refugee families would be resettled here during the balance of 2019, and that cleaning supplies are a truly critical start-up need for these families. So members assembled essential cleaning supplies into 30 buckets, along with mops, brooms and dustpans, for the IRC to give to those newly-arriving families.
Said Pastor Robert Johnson, "Our Missions Team wanted to find a practical way to make a difference in the lives of the families with limited resources as they are resettled here. This project was a meaningful way for our congregation to come together to show care and concern for families in real need."
