No Apologies Series (June-Aug 2018)

This Sunday marks the beginning of our summer series at NCC. We will be taking 10 Sundays to discuss some of the biggest objections to Christianity, or what has classically been called apologetics. We hope you join us to either strengthen your faith, or to break down barriers you might have to faith in Jesus Christ.

Here is the schedule of topics:
6/10/2018 Why Apologetics? (Rob Tucker)

6/17/2018 The Problem of Evil (Rob Tucker)

6/24/2018 Can we trust the Bible? (Rob Tucker) 

7/1/2018 Is it ok that I still have doubts? (Eric Lowe) 

7/8/2018 Is Jesus really God? (Rob Tucker) 

7/15/2018 Does God kill innocent children? (Tim Chappell)  

7/22/2018 How did the world begin? (Rob Tucker)

8/5/2018 The problem of miracles (Rob Tucker) 

8/12/2018 Is Jesus the only way to God? (Dustin McCrea) 

Who do you know that would enjoy engaging in one of these topics? Who will you invite? Perhaps you could follow up with a conversation over coffee or lunch as we strive to become a compelling presence for Christ!

Coast Guard A-School five.16

Here we go, Church!  It’s our next opportunity to love our community together!

Thanks to your generosity this past Christmas via our Giving-It-All-Away offering, we’re serving our U.S. Coast Guard A-School Students in Elizabeth City again!  We want everyone involved in this awesome event, showing encouragement, love and support to students God led here.  You can sign-up below or stop by our Information Center on Sunday morning.   Here are details on ways you can serve!

Thursday, May 17th, we’ll need people to serve at the Hangar 7 building located on the Elizabeth City base.  The following are time slots and needs to cover: 4-5pm set-up, 5-6pm serve dinner, 6-7pm serve dinner and 7-7:30pm clean-up.  During the 5pm and 6pm shifts, we hope for as many NCC people as possible to visit with the students, sharing kindness and encouragement during an often-difficult season in their lives.

If you are unable to serve on base, or are interested in a different way to be involved, we have that too!  We need: 8 people to make crockpot macaroni and cheese, 4 people to prepare green beans, and a crew to prepare individual dessert items.  Our Giving-It-All-Away fund will provide all ingredients needed, so no worries on cost to you!  We are looking for people to help us provide a “home-cooked” meal for those away from their homes and loved ones during school.

Please let us know how YOU want to serve with us, reflecting the love of Christ to awesome men and women in our community!

 

 

Swipe Right Series (April-May 2018)

This Sunday, we begin a new 4-part series called Swipe Right, based on the book by Levi Lusko. This series will look at what the Bible has to say about sexuality and relationships. It is geared for both married and single people.

Here are 5 reasons NOT to attend the Swipe Right series this Sunday at NCC!

1. Don’t attend this series if you don’t want to see how ancient biblical texts can come alive for your life today. For example, week 1 will explore what the story of Jacob and Esau has to do with sexuality.

2. Don’t attend this series if you have never had any struggles in the area of sexuality. If you have never lusted or had an impure thought, you definitely get a pass. In fact, would you like to speak on week 3?

3. Don’t attend this series if you think our culture is getting sexuality right. Instead, just take your cues from television sitcoms. Or Netflix.

4. Don’t attend this series if you don’t want to see our worship director give his first sermon (week 2). Feel free to heckle.

5. And finally, don’t attend this series if you dislike authentic worship. Fact is, we plan on having a lot of it!

We really do hope to see you there!
