Visiting a church for the first time can be a little unnerving. You don’t know what to expect, how you will be received, and what will be required of you.
When you enter the doors of NCBC, you will be greeted by dedicated members who want to make you feel comfortable, welcomed, and informed.
If you have small children, they can either sit with you during worship or we have a nursery staffed by members of NCBC for children up to kindergarten. All of our children’s workers are screened by the leadership including a background check.
After the singing portion of our worship, children from Kindergarten to 4th grade are dismissed for their own worship time. Most church’s call it “children’s church”, we call it “Kid’s Caravan” where kids join in with each other on a journey to discover more about God’s work in the world and our lives.
Our worship begins at 10:30 and ends around 12 noon. We take time to sing, pray, and hear the word of God preached.
NCBC’s approach to worship is simple and comprised of 4 elements: Preaching of the Word, music, giving of tithes and offerings, and prayer. Our music is a blend of contemporary choruses and great hymns of the faith. We typically stand when we sing, but it is not required.
The messages are about 40 minutes in length and expository in nature. Expository sermons differ from topical sermons in that the text of the Bible drives the topic presented. Rather than different topics week after week, we study entire books of the Bible or passages of scripture from start to finish. For larger books, we take a section or key theme. We also move from New Testament to Old Testament with the goal of a balanced study of Biblical content.
The pastor and elders are always available for prayer and encouragement after each worship service.
