Foster parenting & adoption are essential parts of every community. We partner throughout the year with a few agencies who assist kids & parents doing this great work. On September 16, we are hosting this tournament and BBQ in our front lawn & Courtyard in partnership with Help One Child for any foster or adoptive dads in our community. This event is meant as a fun way for guys to make some connections with other dads who have similar day to day experiences.
On Freedom Sunday, we stand united with thousands of churches around the globe to stop human trafficking. Unfortunately, modern-day slavery is happening around the globe and in our region. However, our church partners with several organizations to prevent the trafficking of women and children, offer freedom to those in captivity, and lead survivors to find hope, healing, and restoration. If you are interested in finding ways to stop human trafficking, join us September 23 at 10:30am as we spend some time discussing how we have been helping in these areas, share some amazing stories, pray for those still in bondage, and offer all of us opportunities to help.
To love our community, we have formed partnerships with existing local & global nonprofit organizations who are already supporting, loving, and meeting the needs of our community. These nonprofits do amazing work that we want to encourage and invest in with our resources. Click above to learn more about our partners and how we partner with them.
Everything has a beginning. Every person, every idea, every journey has a starting point. Your formal education, career, romantic life, and experience as a parent all had starting points. Faith has a starting point as well. While our views of everything mature as we do, many people bring their faith from childhood into adulthood without it maturing as well.
Do you need an adult starting point for your faith or do you know anyone who might? This Sunday at 10:30am anyone curious about faith or religion is invited to a conversation about a starting point of faith.
Earlier this year, we hosted 2 workshops designed to provide some help to our community in 2 important areas - anxiety & parenting.
Many of us struggle to overcome and manage our anxiety. For some, social situations can be particularly paralyzing. For others, demands at work make us anxious. Then there is family, aging parents, kids, and our significant others. Below is the link to the many of the resources from the workshop we hosted on anxiety.
Parenting can be difficult for many reasons, but particularly because our kids are constantly changing! As soon as we discover something that works with our parenting, our kids grow into a different phase. Contact us at the button below, and we would love to share the notes & resources we discussed about the opportunities we can leverage as parents in each unique phase of a child's life.
If you haven't been to church in a while or aren't sure you're ready to "go to church", we would love for you to check out an online service we posted for New Year's Weekend at online.nlnc.org! Watching this online service could be a great way to get to know us a little better. In this service, you will hear a song led by our Creative Arts Pastor, Heidi, and our band, followed by a short message from our Lead Pastor, Chris.
