In-Person Gatherings

Great news! We are taking a next step toward welcoming you all back into the building.

First off, you need to know:

  • Your safety is our priority. We are working to make sure our space is safe, spacious and sanitized.
  • We are re-opening the building in stages. This is the first of many steps we’re taking. Stay informed, stay connected, and stay encouraged in Christ!
     

Step 1 of re-opening the building: 7pm Thursday night gatherings of 30-50 people (RSVP required) 

This gathering will primarily be a time of learning what we need to do to have in-person Sunday gatherings, and capturing our worship and preaching so we can produce our Sunday morning online gatherings. It won’t feel like our usual Sunday in-person gathering, but it will still be a great time of connecting with others, worship and receiving from God’s word.

Please note the following guidelines:

  • Sadly, we will not be able to provide coffee, donuts, or NCC Kids at this point.
  • We ask that you wear a mask and practice social distancing               

We are also going to continue to gather online at 8 am and 10 am on Sundays using the video we captured from Thursday night. We totally understand that many of you are not ready to join us in-person in this season. We get that! We remain one church!

To reserve your seat for a Thursday night gathering, email us at info@ncctacoma.org (We are currently taking RSVPs for the July 30th gathering and later.)

One more thing. The details of all of this are important, but not as important as preparing our hearts for these next steps. Let's let the Apostle Paul have the last word on that:

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2:3–5)
