Encouragements from
the NCC Elders

Dear NCCers, 

Wow! There is so much to learn about leading through these times. Thank you for your patience and encouragement as we take steps to protect and encourage you all, as well as our neighbors. 

As an eldership team we have come to the conclusion that it is very important that we work in conjunction with the national, state, county, and city governments in doing our part to not spread the virus. In order to help "flatten the curve" we will be moving to online Sunday gatherings at ncctacoma.org/live. Our Community Groups will also be meeting via online and app-based conferences. Please contact your CG leader for more info.

Since the ascension of Jesus, the church has gathered with a regular rhythm, but often in different venues. Sometimes house to house, sometimes in synagogues. Sometimes in catacombs, sometimes in cathedrals. Sometimes in schools, sometimes in former movie theaters. The point was never where, rather, an encouragement to do so on a regular basis (Hebrews 10:24-25). This is an amazing opportunity for us to remember, and declare, that the church is NOT a building, it’s the people of God on mission together. 

Again, our hope is that we continue to lead with compassion as we listen to other people’s opinions and needs. We are very aware of the fact that many might find themselves in a difficult financial situation as a result of all the restrictions being put in place. Please keep standing together in prayer as Community Groups and be honest about any needs you may have by communicating those needs to your CG leaders.

We would also recommend you rest from news sources and social media as both can be very overwhelming right now. Sure, take an occasional look to stay in the loop, but don’t live there. Practice silence, keep watch, keep praying, keep loving others, and worship your way out of anxiety and fear! 

With a ton of love! 

The Eldership Team
