Baby Dedication Celebration​

On Sunday, April 22nd as part of our services, we will be hosting a Baby Dedication Celebration.

Our Baby Dedication Celebrations are a time for parents to publicly commit to raising their child in a way that glorifies God, and for the church to commit to partnering with those families through that process.

If your family is interested, you can pick up a Baby Dedication packet from the Kidz Community check-in desk. Packets need to be completed by Sunday, April 15th.

For more information, you can contact Tim Chappell at or 252-335-0015.

The Time is Now: Compelling Parents Conference 2018

Parenting is hard.

It’s easy to feel like you’re not doing a good enough job, worn out and defeated because no one else seems to have the struggles you do.  Or, perhaps you’re frustrated because the ideal picture of what your family would be when you grew up looks anything but that “perfect” image?

Despite these tough feelings (and so many more!), we are called to be a compelling presence, right there in our messy living rooms, crowded minivans and noisy dinner tables.  Amongst the extracurricular activities, sick days, cell phone arguments and peer interactions…we are to be compelling for our kids.

But what does a “compelling presence”  even look like, and is it a reality, with kids?

Good news…YES.

Mark your calendars and join us for our very first Compelling Parents Conference on Saturday, April 14th from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM.  This year’s theme, “The Time is Now”, will help us focus on intentional parenting.  We’ll have breakout sessions on parenting sons and daughters, helping children cope with loss and grief, and the unique challenges of being a military family.

The Compelling Parents Conference is a day for you to engage in practical teaching and talk with other parents just like you!  Invite your parent friends!  Lunch and childcare are provided for all registered.

To register for the conference, please visit the Information Center on Sundays or register online anytime! Looking forward to having you here with us!  The time is now.

Amber Seneres will be joining us.

NCC safety

Part of our goal at NCC is to promote a safe environment for our children, our congregation, our volunteers, and our staff. For this reason, we have begun phasing in several preparedness measures into our normal operating routine. This will entail training of our staff members and volunteers in emergency response, reviewing and modifying our current procedures and measures, and establishing a security team. As we continue to make NCC a great place to worship, we also continue to improve the safety of our church.

Joe Fenimore has agreed to lead us in this effort.  He has 20 years of experience in security operations which he has gained in both the military and the private sector. We are blessed to have Joe’s leadership in this.

Our Next Baptism

Our next baptism will be on Easter Sunday, April 1st during our morning worship services!

Healthy Kidz, Healthy Church

We love seeing all of our kids in Kidz Community each and every week!  We want to take seriously our responsibility to protect children from exposure to illness, especially in this season as so much sickness is going around.

In order for us to make sure we are doing this to the best of our ability, we need your help!  We must rely on the parent’s honesty on the condition of their child, especially since signs are not always obvious and a leader who receives your child only has a short time to observe their condition.

Upon the recommendation of the Committee on Control of Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a child with any of the following symptoms should stay at home:

  • A fever in the previous 24 hours
  • Vomiting or diarrhea, either currently or in the previous 24 hours.
  • Any symptom of a childhood disease such as chicken pox or whooping cough
  • A cold or nose with excessive or discolored drainage
  • Sore throat
  • Croup
  • Any unexplained rash
  • Any skin infection such as boils, ringworm, or impetigo
  • Any hair or skin infestation such as head lice
  • Pinkeye or other eye infection

Thank you for your understanding and your help!  We are looking forward to having your kids with us each and every Sunday in Kidz Community!
