What is Compassion Day?
A unique opportunity to show the love of Christ in very tangible ways to our community by performing service projects for organizations and individuals. Projects are primarily designed to be two to three hours long. Some projects may take longer; an estimated time commitment will be provided at sign-up, so you know the expectation.
Why is NCC doing a Compassion Day?
We are called to be God's hands and feet on earth, reaching out to the "least of these." This is exactly how Christ transformed lives. He first met a physical need, and then showed a person the only way to salvation. We want everyone at NCC to not just go to church but BE the church!

Who participates in Compassion Day?
Everyone who attends NCC can participate as well as anyone you would like to invite to join you for this special day of serving. We send out teams to serve our communities, our mission partners, the general public, and the under-privileged. Most teams will be composed of 8 to 15 people.
What types of service projects will be available?
Typically, there is a wide variety of projects available appropriate for small children, those that require more skilled labor, and everything in between. Projects in the past have included repairs, landscaping, visiting with elderly, collecting furniture, handing out water bottles in North Park, preparing meals, and even washing fire trucks, just to name a few.
