Plan Your Visit
Here you will discover a warm group of real people dedicated to following our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
What to Expect on a Sunday
Dress: Come as you are! Which means there are all kinds of people dressed in all kinds of ways! It’s mostly pretty casual. Feel free to wear whatever you have, whether it’s jeans and T-shirts, dresses, shorts, dress pants and ties, khakis and polos, or whatever. It’s what’s on the inside that matters.
Entrance: As you enter the parking lot, you’ll see the main entrance on the far-right side of the building. As you enter the front doors, you will be greeted by friendly people welcoming you to church. If you let them know it’s your first visit to NHCN, they will help you find whatever you need:; restrooms, child care, or your way to the worship gathering. But if you just want to slip in, our worship space is straight ahead. There is a welcome center inside the main doors that can provide you with whatever information you’re looking for.
Worship Gathering: The worship time generally consists of music, prayer, preaching, and a time to respond to what we have heard. The music is usually interactive. In other words, everyone is invited to sing along together. The words are shown on a screen up front. You don’t have to sing out loud if you don’t want to, but we find (once you’re comfortable) it’s meaningful to participate. The style of the songs we sing together will probably remind you of what you would hear on an adult contemporary radio station. The lyrics might be a contemporary expression of praise to God, a centuries- old song of the church, or from ancient writings about God. Sometimes the music is presented by performers on the platform without singing along for you to enjoy and to help you think about God. We hope you will sense God’s presence as we worship together.
Prayer: Our prayer times vary in style and purpose. Occasionally, participants are directed to sit, stand, kneel, or whatever they feel best helps them to experience God. However, most of the time people remain in their seats while someone leads, as the rest of us follow along in our hearts and minds. Other times, the prayer time is completely silent for each participant to reflect. We like there to be real freedom while maintaining a sense of order.
Preaching: Each week, someone teaches from God’s Word. We try to think about how God’s Word applies to our lives. Sometimes we watch a video, look at pictures, use interactive exercises, or invite people to share their own stories about how God is real to them. The main emphasis is on how we respond to God’s Word. Sometimes we respond in a time of prayer, with a song, or by participating in communion.
It’s For Everyone: Make no mistake, our worship gatherings are all about Christ and are focused on Him. But we hope that no matter where you are in relationship to Jesus, you’ll come and enjoy experiencing God’s presence with us. We hope you connect both to God through worship and to others as you meet us here each week.
Length: Each service varies in length, as well as content and feel. However, most Sundays the services run from 60-70 minutes in length.
Café: There is a café located at the corner of the building closest to the driveway entrance. On Sunday morning’s there is free coffee. It’s also a great place to mingle with others and hang out for a while.
Happily, our parking lot isn’t complicated. There is one path to the main entrance. The main entrance is the furthest door from the entrance to our parking lot. If attending with children and infants, you can enter through the first door. Please be aware that the first doors lock in between services.

Grandparents Prayer Group
Grandparent’s Prayer meet first Wednesday of the month and is a time to pray for our grandchildren and the children who attend our church. They have prayer needs and opportunities their parents and grandparents didn’t have as children to confront. We care, share, and celebrate their journey through childhood while covering them in prayer. Come join us!
Wednesday Nights are fast paced, full of fun and a great way to let out energy mid week. While exploring different series every month children will be challenged to learn bible stories and memory verses while also playing games and having fun. During warmer weather we spend time outside, on our playgrounds and during cooler weather we have free play in the gym after our lesson.
Children Potty-Trained through 6th grade are invited to join us for Wednesday Night Activities.
