Welcome to NEC
Sunday service is held at 10:00 a.m.
New to NEC? We want your experience, from the moment you enter our parking lot to the time you drive away to be a positive and welcoming one. To that end, here are a few things you can expect on a Sunday morning:
Parking Team: Our hospitality begins before you even enter the building. Our Parking Team braves all sorts of weather to make sure our parking lot is a safe and stress-free zone. If you have a special need, please let one of the people in the yellow vest know and they will assist you.
Guest Services: As you enter the front doors, you will be greeted by a member of the Greeting Team. They are more than just a smiling face, however. They can help with any information that you need, from the location of the restrooms, to directions to Kids Zone to the weekly bulletin. In the middle of the front foyer, there is also a Guest Services information desk, where someone can assist you with more detailed information and requests. You may also stop by Guest Services and get a free gift bag which we offer to first time guests.
Cafѐ: As you make your way down the hallway outside the sanctuary, you will see a cafѐ. Here we offer coffee and tea, as well as the chance to connect with friends and neighbors in addition to various groups within the church. The coffee and tea are on us; the connection is up to you!
Kids Zone: Beyond the cafѐ, and through the double doors, is our kids program, for children birth-Grade 5 (Kids Zone is also accessible from its own parking lot on the side of the building. If you have young children and would like to park in this lot, please let a member of the Parking Team know). For more information on Kids Zone, click here.
Sunday Experience: There is a timely and meaningful message, as well as engaging music and videos. Our music and related content comes from a variety of secular and christian sources, and reflects traditional as well as contemporary styles. We celebrate communion on a monthly basis and baptism six times per year.
Prayer: We have several opportunities for prayer. In addition to prayers offered during the Sunday experience, we have a Prayer Table in the back of the sanctuary where several volunteers are available to pray with and for you. There is also a bowl in the main hallway where you can leave an anonymous prayer request. For more information on Prayer at NEC visit the prayer page.
Getting to Know NEC: If you would like more information, or have questions, check out Getting to Know NEC. Held quarterly, these session go into greater detail about how NEC started as well as our ongoing mission and vision. There is a time for Q&A following each Getting to Know NEC session, to help you decide if NEC is a good fit for you. For more information, contact Christie Mulligan.
