What are the Beliefs at Norwin Christian?
With Jesus as the owner and head of the church (Matthew 16:16,18; Ephesians 1:22), we are a free congregation, not ruled by a headquarters or hierarchy, but self-governed by leaders with faith and spiritual maturity (1 Timothy 3:1-13). We further choose to operate under these three basic positions:
What does a Typical Worship Service Look Like?
A typical worship service opens with few worship songs, led by our worship band. The music is typical of what is heard on Contemporary Christian radio stations, such as K-Love.
What about Security for my Child?
The safety of our congregation and children is of utmost importance to us. Because of this every child through 4th grade needs to be registered through our electronic check-in process.
Where Should I Park?
We have a large parking lot to accomodate everyone who attends Norwin Christian. In the front we have designated spaces for first time visitors. Behind the church building we have parking spaces for those with children which are near the rear entrance.
What is a Communicator Card and what do I do with it?
At NCC we have weekly Communicator Cards as part of the bulletin that you will get as you enter the main worship area. We ask that you fill a card out to the level of comfort so we have record of you attending with us on that Sunday. If it is your first time attending, at the end of service take the Communicator Card to the Welcome Desk inside the main entrance. There you will recive a small gift (30oz. NCC hot/cold tumbler and a Star Bucks Giftcard). As a thank you for joining us.
