It is our prayer that you will see God’s goodness every Sunday morning at NTCC through a time of praise and worship music, relevant messages, Bible Fellowship classes for adults, junior high and high school students and children’s programming for all ages during our 9am and 10:30am services.

We understand that your first time at a church, any church, may bring up some questions.  How do I get there?  What should I wear? What is available for my children? What can I expect during the services?

Here are the answers to some answers to frequently asked questions

Service Times : Our worship service times are Sundays at 9:00am and 10:30am. Children’s programs for infants through 6th grade are offered at both of our services.  Sunday School for jr high and high school students meets at 9am.  Bible classes for adults (Adult Bible Fellowship) are offered during both of our services.

Casual Dress: Most people at NTCC dress very casual. Jeans, shorts, business casual are all very appropriate. We’re more interested with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. Come to NTCC in whatever is comfortable to you!

Parking: As you come down the driveway to the church, handicapped parking is located along the front of the building. If you are a first time visitor, there are visitor spots available in the first row.

Arrival: As you enter the building you will be met by one of our friendly greeters who will give you a bulletin and can assist you to the auditorium, help direct you to the children’s check-in area, or answer any questions you may have.  Help yourself to a complimentary cup of coffee before or after services (located at Commission Coffee Corner in the back of the Sanctuary).  You are welcome to bring beverages into the auditorium. In your bulletin, you will find a Connection Card which we use to get acquainted with you better. You can fill this card out and drop it in the offering container later in the service or in the designated baskets at the Information Table on your way out of the Sanctuary after services.

Age-appropriate Services for Kids: KidZChurch and HiSKidZ Children’s Programming is the perfect place for your children, infants through 6th grade, to learn and have fun! We recommend you arrive about 15 minutes before the service to check them in so you won’t feel rushed. If your kids are shy, they can accompany you to the adult service, but most kids thoroughly enjoy our children’s services.

Creative and Authentic Worship Services: New Testament Christian Church strives to bring the 2,000-year-old message of Christ to people in a manner that relates to their lives today. The message of the gospel is impactful by itself, but it becomes personal and memorable when supported with a combination of great music, creative illustrations and video clips—taking God’s truth from the complex to the simple. It’s real and relevant.

Communion and Offering: Communion is offered during every worship service to all believers. We also take up an offering each week; however, when the offering time comes, please know that you are under no obligation to give. Giving is an act of worship for those who call NTCC their church home.

Hard of Hearing: Assisted Listening Devices are available by request at the Soundboard in the back of the Sanctuary. To request a device, simply ask the person running sound to help you and they can set it up for you.

Additional Information: Please stop by the Information Table located by the front foyer and someone will be able to answer your questions. If you don’t have a Bible, please help yourself to one of our complimentary Bibles. Be sure to read your bulletin for upcoming  events, classes and ways to become involved at NTCC!
