NBC In-Person Gathering

10:00 Worship Service

Because we are still seeking to have consideration for those who feel various levels of personal risk, we continue to require masks for the Morning Worship. We are still seeking as well to respect social distancing recommendations. To help with that, the Ministry Center has been set up for overflow. The service will be broadcast into the front room. With seating in the Ministry Center as well as what is already available in the auditorium, we are prepared for guests visiting our church and regular members who may be back for the first time.

10:00 a.m. Online Gathering

The service will be live-streamed and hosted on a live-chat platform. 

Childcare and Children’s Ministry

Nursery and toddler care as well as pre-primary and primary ministries are provided during the 10:00 service. 

  • Masks are required for workers and children age 10 and above.
  • Do not bring children with a temperature or who have shown any symptoms of COVID.
  • Temperatures will be taken upon arrival.
  • Social distance will be maintained as much as is practical. 
  • Rooms will be sprayed and disinfected after each use.

Remember safety, sacrifice, and service.

Gathering under the current circumstances will require some things from each of us: caution because the COVID-19 virus is still around; consideration because people feel various levels of personal risk in this season; courage because while venturing out can be risky, we can trust in the good hand of the Lord to provide for and protect us; and compassion because probably everyone has felt a little beat up at one time or other during this pandemic, and hopefully gathering together will be an experience of peace and not tension.

One more word will be key: flexibility. As we see how things unfold, we will adjust as necessary and wise.
