Serve Locally

   

Join with A1:8 partners or initiatives to make a difference in your community.

  • Second Saturday Serve

    What keeps you up at night? What injustice, cause, or brokenness propels you to action? Second Saturday Serve is one place to figure that out, a starting point to living life on mission. Each month we serve our local community and provide an entry point to going deeper. Every NCC campus offers opportunities for you to serve as you are able right in your community.

  • Living Room

    The Living Room is a small group that brings people together from all walks of life to fellowship and study the scriptures over a meal.

    While all are welcome, many individuals in this small group have found themselves living on the streets, in a local shelter, or as part of the working poor. The Living Room meets every Wednesday night at Ebenezers. Feel free to come join us for fellowship. We are also in need of volunteers to prepare meals for this small group.

  • InService

    InService is an outreach at Union Station and surrounding areas to build relationships with neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.

    We pass out lunches, but more importantly offer kindness, prayer, encouragement, and a listening ear. Our goal is to meet people where they are and invite them into a community where they feel welcomed and cared for through the love of Jesus.
