What's Happening at NCC?
Easter week is the center of the Christian year because the resurrection of Jesus Christ is at the center of our faith. Jesus' defeat of death is our defeat of death! His new life promises ours! Join us as we celebrate not only the historical events of the first Easter, but more importantly, the hope that is ours because of it.
Palm Sunday: We begin our journey to the cross and the empty tomb at 9 and 11 a.m.
Walk with Jesus: On Good Friday, families can follow Jesus from His triumphal entry into Jerusalem to His resurrection through five interactive stations. Each station will have a hands-on activity and thought-provoking questions. Groups will begin the “walk” every 20 minutes from noon-2 p.m. The experience takes about one hour.
Communion Service: These services provide quiet Communion and an intimate worship experience, culminating in a fresh appreciation for the cross. Identical services will be held on Wednesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. Childcare is available through age 3 on both nights
Time of Contemplation: On Good Friday, the Worship Center is open from noon-3 p.m. for a time of quiet contemplation. This is a personal, experiential interaction as you progress at your own pace through five stations of the cross. Childcare will not be offered.
Easter Sunday: Our Easter morning services, at 9 and 11 a.m., are filled with joy as we celebrate the hope of the empty tomb! Childcare is available through age 3, while older children are invited to worship together with their families. Parents, we will have Easter activity books and crayons available as you enter.
In anticipation of large crowds for Easter, we will be providing a simulcast of the service in the first-floor Commons. We will offer snacks and coffee downstairs as well as access to a classroom for children to play if they become restless. No matter what time you arrive, we will have a seat for you!
April 28, from 12:15-1:30 p.m. — 1st-Floor
There is a mental health crisis in our culture. There is a proliferation of anxiety, depression, and other illnesses of the mind. Many of us and/or members of our families are suffering with issues related to mental health and are often unable to find help and resources. At times Christians inadvertently send the message to people suffering that they don’t have enough faith. We want to think about how we can engage with others in our communities on the topic of mental health in a way that allows the light of Jesus to shine through.
- How can the church help you better understand mental health issues?
- How can the church equip you to deal with a mental health issue either personally or with a loved one?
It’s very important for us here at NCC to hear your voice so we can understand the issues you face in your life. We hope you’ll join us so we can hear from you. Lunch will be provided, so please RSVP online.
