Return of Nursery & Sunday School
New Community Church | POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
We are so excited and thankful to resume offering nursery care, and to reopen the Sunday School to our NCC families on Saturday, June 20th and Sunday, June 21st. We would like to update you on a few steps that we will be following and ask that you please help us to ensure the best return possible.
Be sure to sign up each week for church via the church email for the services you plan to attend. This will give us a better idea of how many children to expect so that we may staff the nursery and the Sunday School classes accordingly. If you have volunteered to serve in the nursery or are teaching in the Sunday school, you do not need to sign up for that time slot. If you desire to attend the opposite day of when you serve, a spot will be held for you but you DO NEED TO SIGN UP for that day.
Classroom assignments are a little different, so please note where to take your children:
Nursery (0-2): Continue to drop off at the entrance to the nursery
PreK - 1st Grade: Classroom A
2nd - 5th Grade: Classroom B
We ask that you follow the general wellness policy as follows:
Please keep your child out of the nursery or Sunday School if they have any of these symptoms: fever, rash, vomiting, persistent cough, sore throat, or communicable diseases (i.e. chicken pox).
Should your child become ill suddenly while at NCC, we will isolate him or her, contact the medical staff, and you immediately.
We ask that anyone entereing the nursery or classrooms, wash their hands or use hand sanitizer prior to entering.
Masks will not be required to be worn by the workers, and we would ask that you bring your own if you desire to wear one.
When dropping off your child, please have any necessary items that they may need contained in one bag. Please only bring the necessities such as a diaper, pacifier, sippy cup, etc. No blankets or personal toys will be allowed in at this time.
We will not be serving snacks to children during this stage.
NCC Kids Soccer Camp
July 11-13 | LaSalle Springs Middle School
Christians who play sports can attest to the many benefits that such involvement can provide, including stress reduction; weight control; camaraderie; and the development of accountability, leadership, and communication, goal-setting, and problem-solving skills. The endurance and perseverance required in athletic competition can be valuable in building and strengthening character.
One of the greatest benefits of competing in sports is the development of self-control: “Every athlete exercises self-control in all things” (1 Corinthians 9:25). In the crucible of competitive action, the presence of self-control—or the lack of it—becomes obvious to all observers.
NCC’s Soccer Camp not only provides the training and fitness discipline for those from first grade to eighth grade but it also provides the opportunity for the campers to be challenged by the Scripture pep talks at the end of each day. This year’s camp will be held from July 11-13, from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm. We are waiting to hear back from LaSalle Springs Middle School for the final confirmation so your prayers are greatly appreciated. There is a nominal registration fee of $10 for the first camper, $5 for the second and no charge for any additional registrants from that family.
We have scheduled Tommy Heinemann and his team of assistants to bring the instruction on soccer fundamentals and testify to the work of the gospel. Heinemann retired from professional soccer following the 2018 season. On April 16, 2019, he was named an assistant coach with the Belmont Bruins men’s soccer team.

September - May | 6:00 - 9:00 PM
What can a married couple do to ensure that their marriage will last? The first and most important issue is one of obedience to God and His Word. Building on the foundation of a godly marriage, many couples find practical ways to help make their marriages last: spending quality time together, saying "I love you" often, being kind, going on dates, and being ready to forgive for example. All these actions are encompassed by the Bible's instructions to husbands and wives.
Foundations Family Ministry will begin our third year of sponsoring Sweetheart Bible Studies that meet once a month from September - May with the purpose of developing your marriage so as to glorify the Father.
Interested? Please sign up as we are limited to ten couples.
Please contact Ray Mehringer with any questions.
Please sign up online here.
