New to NCC?
Attending a new church can be a fascinating yet frightening experience for most people. Few things are familiar while most things are different. We understand those feelings when it comes to attending a new church. We’ve been there. We were new here once ourselves. We understand that being new isn’t easy and that’s why we make you feel welcomed as soon as you enter our building. Here at NCC, we are a family church where everyone feels at home. We hope you feel at home here!
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT NESCONSET CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Parking: We have plenty of spaces and since you’re visiting, we have dedicated parking for you by our front entrance! If you drive by and our main parking lot is full, park in our upper parking lot on Smithtown Blvd.
When you arrive: You will be greeted by someone from our Welcome Team. There will be a sanitizing station there at the entrance, please feel free to sanitize your hands before coming in the sanctuary. You are welcome to ask our team any questions you have. Make sure you grab communion as you enter the sanctuary because we will not be placing communion plates because of COVID-19.
Feel free to visit our cafe, located downstairs to the left, right after our 10am service! We will have FREE coffee and bagels for you and your family to enjoy. This is a great opportunity to meet and connect with other families from our church.
Adult Worship: Our adult services at 10am and last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. We worship together with music provided by our worship band (make sure you wear your mask when singing if you aren’t vaccinated). Communion is offered and prepackaged by the entrance. We receive communion each Sunday at NCC followed by our offering and church announcements. Our Families Pastor, Andrew Todd, or an elder, will then share a Biblical message on a relevant life topic that will encourage and challenge you towards growth in your relationship with Jesus. Have questions, not sure what you believe? Struggling? Going through a rough patch? That’s ok! When we say, “Come as you are”, we mean it!
What should I wear?: Wear what you’ll be comfortable wearing. Dress is relaxed and casual, and that means everybody, from our staff and volunteers to those attending services.
Youth and Children’s Programming
During COVID-19, we are doing our best to make sure our children’s classes are safe and sanitized! Here is what we are doing to make sure your children are safe:
- The teachers will make their best effort to maintain social distancing.
- Masks must be worn by the children.
- Each child’s temperature is taken upon arrival.
- Hand sanitizer is used.
Nursery and Preschool Classes: NCC prides itself in providing quality childcare and classes for children of all ages. Your child will be greeted by friendly and caring teachers who have all gone through training and criminal background checks. All teachers must be members of NCC for six months before they are permitted to work with our children. These classes meet on the same level as the adults do in our sanctuary.
Elementary Age Classes: During the 11am hour, your child will be in a graded class where they will learn God’s Word, make crafts and enjoy a smaller group experience.
Junior High and Senior High Students: During our 10am service, our teens (grades 6th-12th) meet in our “Youth House” which is the house right beside our upper parking lot. They must wear a mask within 6ft of others but they can take it off when they sit during the message. We have a youth band so your teen will experience a time of worship, communion, offering, and a fun, interactive, and Biblically-based lesson geared to their age and needs. We have TONS of events and ways that your teen can plug in and grow their faith in Jesus.
