What to Expect
We love the Christmas season at NMC and all that we get to celebrate together! You'll hear a message from our Lead Pastor, Rob McDowell, on the clear reason for Christmas, Jesus. We'll also join together in worshipping through singing our Christmas favorites. Each service will last about 60-minutes and is set in a casual, "come as you are" environment.
For the Kids
Our Kid's Ministry, Town Square, will have nursery and preschool classrooms open for the 5:00pm service on Friday, December 23, and the 1:00pm, 3:00pm, and 5:00pm services on Saturday, December 24.
There will be no children's programming for the 7:00pm services on Friday, December 23, or Saturday, December 24. All children are welcome to join their families in the main service!
Share it on Social
