What to Expect
The ultimate goal of our worship services, classes, and everything else we do is to put the glory of Jesus Christ on display. You will meet broken sinners who have been transformed by the gospel gathering together to be built up by the preaching of God’s Word, to share life together through genuine fellowship, to pray together, and to encourage one another.
Please note that in response to COVID-19, we have made some temporary adjustments for the duration of the summer:
- There will be no elementary kids classes until the fall of 2020, but we will continue to offer childcare for babies through pre-k (4-year-olds). Elementary-aged children (5 and up) are welcome to join their parents in the main worship services. Please make sure your children remain with you at all times while in the Worship Center.
- There will be no Sunday school classes for students (7th-12th grade) or adults until the fall of 2020.
- We will not provide refreshments at the Welcome Center.
At NCC you will see people who dress casually for church and others who like to dress up. Feel free to wear whatever makes you comfortable.
Plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the service. We have designated guest parking for you in the west and the north parking lots. There are also senior and disabled parking spots available.
Friendly people are available at our Welcome Center who would love to answer any questions you have, as well as escort you anywhere you wish to visit on campus. Follow the signs located around the campus to find the Welcome Center. Oh, and there are refreshments too!
Expository preaching is the proclamation of the real and central meaning of a passage of Scripture as it was intended by the original author. If the preacher is not saying what the original author was saying, he is not preaching expositorily.
Expository preaching is vitally important to the life and growth of God’s church. First, God’s people can understand Him and discern His will; they can trace God’s plan for His people in the past and what awaits them in the future. Exposition also unearths God’s framework for local church ministry, as well as God’s requirements for those who would lead His church. Finally, it is God’s primary method to change the lives of His people. As people listen to expository sermons, the Holy Spirit uses His Word to inform their minds, affect their hearts, and move their wills.
God-centered, Christ-exalting music plays a necessary part in corporate worship. Songs that rehearse the character of God and His gracious redemptive acts inform our minds, stir our hearts, and provide a platform for us to lift our voices in engaging worship.
Although it may be surprising to some, biblical preaching also holds a central role in Christian worship. Surprised? Don’t be. When we sing, we address God. When God’s Word is preached, God addresses us! When the preacher is faithful to proclaim the biblical message, the voice of God can be heard speaking from the pages of Scripture. Worship continues as God’s message is given to a people who hear it and respond in humble obedience.
