The NCC Gainesville location has a casual, come-as-you-are vibe that usually runs for a little over an hour. Since we are in a movie theater, seating is comfortable and comes with a cup holder. We want to maximize these cup holders, so we provide coffee upon entering. Follow the signs to our main theater.
Our time starts out with congregational singing with our live band. While everyone is invited to participate in the worship and singing, there is never any pressure to do so, and individuals will always feel comfortable to engage however they like. Following a time of singing and worship, there is a life-giving, scripture-based message via video on the big screen. After the service, many people take the opportunity to hang out in the Promenade or grab a bite to eat together.
For those with families, we have a nursery for infants - 2 years old that is available for the entire service. For kids 2 years old - 5th grade, parents may take their child into the service in the theater, and then following the congregational singing, the children are dismissed to join our children's program called "Crosswalk Kids." Parents can pick up their child during or after the service. All our children's workers have submitted to a background check.
The best way to find out more about NCC Gainesville is to experience it for yourself, so we hope you'll do just that. We look forward to meeting you soon!
