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.
When visiting NCC, we are doing our best to make you feel safe during COVID-19. Please watch this video from our pastor to learn more about how we are helping our community stay safe while still attending our in-person worship services.
Parking: We have plenty of spaces and since you’re visiting, we have dedicated parking for you too! 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 who will open the door for you. There will be a sanitizing station there at the entrance, please sanitize your hands before coming in the auditorium. Feel free to ask our team any questions you have. Make sure you grab communion as you enter the building because we will not be placing communion plates because of COVID-19.
As of right now in our reopening phases, there will be NO Connection Cafe. When we are in Phase 3 of reopening our building, feel free to visit our cafe for morning breakfast, located in the fellowship hall, in between the 9am and 11a.m. services, to grab a cup of coffee and a bagel.
Adult Worship: Our adult services at 9am & 11am 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). Communion is offered and prepackaged by the entrance. We receive communion each Sunday at NCC followed by our offering (place your offering in the secure offering box by the front of the stage in the auditorium) and church announcements. Our Pastor 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
**As of right now, we are not having nursery and preschool classes because of COVID-19 (don’t worry, we love kids!).
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.
If your child is in Pre-k through 5th grade,
Please call or text our children’s director,
So she can get a headcount.
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 auditorium.
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: **Starting August 9th, During both our 9am & 11am services our teens (grades 6th-12th) meet in the back of our Upper Parking lot instead of our “Youth House” to help with social distancing. 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.
