Adopt-a-block is a simple concept built on three principles: prayer, building relationships, and service. We’re just getting to know neighbors, finding ways to serve and empower them, and beginning to pray over practical needs in the neighborhood.
InService utilizes people with a heart to serve that are willing to help hand out lunches and other needed items, as well as to help foster a community with the homeless where people feel welcome and cared for in the love of Christ. Meet at Ebenezers Coffeehouse then walk to Union Station together.
If your family or small group would like to volunteer to prepare lunches in advance some week, please contact Meredith.
This Sunday, after service at Lincoln Theatre, you're invited to hear Gary Carpenter and Emmanuel Caudillo, leaders of our Los Angeles Dream Center 2014 team talk about their upcoming mission. In anticipation of NCC opening up the DC Dream Center, we are putting together a missions team to where it all started, LA’s Dream Center. We will be participating in a variety of missions during our week stay at LA’s Dream Center which serves thousands of people in need in the LA area. In addition to serving the people of LA we are hoping to learn about the mission of the Dream Center and transfer that knowledge and experience to NCC’s Dream Center in preparation for serving the needs of families in DC.
You're invited to hear team leaders David Kraft and Nicole Thompson talk about their upcoming mission. Join us as we partner with the National Coalition for the Homeless and in a small way experience what it is like to be homeless in DC. You will show up with nothing but the clothes on your back, Bible, and journal. You will meet and build relationships with people currently experiencing homelessness and hear their stories. You will learn what the city has to offer in terms of services and what it is like to sleep outside on the street.
Romania 2014 Info Session
2:00 PM • NCC Office: 7th St Conference Room • Google Map
You're invited to hear team leaders Tommy Henry and Stephanie Shubert talk about this summer's mission to Romania. This info session will be in English and ASL with interpretation. Our team will assist Romanian Evangelistic Medical Mission (REMM) in a collection of ministries: orphanage, coffee house, and village ministry. We will spend most of our time serving at Casa Josef, a home to eight beautiful girls that is run by REMM. We also plan to renew a recent connection with a Deaf ministry in Romania with a visit to a deaf Baptist church in Oradea. We may serve in a variety of other ways, preparing and delivering meals, evangelism, clean-up, and construction.
