Food Pantry Outreach Update
Updated 5/26/2020 at 12:01PM
We’re planning to have our outreach in June with the same format we used in March, April, and May. Rather than holding our service inside, we’ll be providing groceries and food as you wait in your car. We’ll have things set up behind our building so that you can pull right up to receive your food. As always, we’ll be available to pray for you and share God’s love. Our outreach will still start at 10AM on the third Saturday of each month. This new format will continue until further notice.
You can find more information on our Food Pantry page.
What's the plan for this coming Sunday?
Updated 5/26/2020 at 12:01PM
We are moving into Phase 2 of our plans to meeting in-person. Phase 2 will involve moving some of our Sunday morning Zoom components into our sanctuary. That means the worship and teaching aspects of our Zoom gathering will be broadcast from 104 starting on Sunday, May 31st.
To find out more about the 4 phases of our transition plan, please read below in the sections titled Announcements & Updates.

Announcements - Updates
UPDATED MAY 26th, 2020
After much conversation and prayer, we've decided to transition back to meeting in-person again! We're going to walk through 4 phases in our move back to in-person meetings.
HERE ARE THE FOUR PHASES
This is what we are currently doing. Zoom meetings are happening for both our Sunday and mid-week meetings.
Zoom will still be our primary platform, but we will move some of our service components to our NVC building. The two aspects of our service that we will begin broadcasting to Zoom from "the newly renovated 104!" will be worship and teaching. This will begin with our gathering on 5/31. Also during this phase our mid-week gatherings will begin discussions about meeting in-person again, to be decided by each group.
Zoom will still be our primary platform, but we will invite those who feel ready to gather in-person again to join us in the sanctuary as we do our Sunday morning Zoom broadcast. We are currently working on the guidelines which will be in place to make sure everyone is safe. During this phase we will encourage those not ready to meet in-person, those who don't feel well, or those in a high risk group, to participate in our Zoom call from home.
Our gathering in the sanctuary at NVC will now be our primary platform. Zoom will still be a part of our service but the Zoom call will now be centered around what is happening in the sanctuary.
As we continue to monitor the Coronavirus situation, we will regularly update this page and keep you informed about the plans for next Sunday and moving forward!
Our Mid-week gatherings will be each deciding individually when they will start meeting in-person again. Stay tuned for more information about what each group decides. In the meantime you can join us at any one of these mid-week gatherings that are currently happening on Zoom:
Abide Gathering – Sundays @7PM
Women’s Book Club – Tuesdays @7PM
Healing Prayer – Wednesdays @7PM
Fischer Home Bible Study – 2nd & 4th Thursdays @7PM
All gatherings can be accessed through Zoom. Meeting ID: 263-572-9343
Many folks have expressed a desire to have a dialogue regarding the COVID-19 situation. So, we are dedicating our Wisdom Seekers meeting on 6/1 at 6:30PM to discussing the pandemic. We invite all who are interested to join in the discussion.
The Wisdom Seekers discussion will be happening on Zoom.
