WOMEN'S GATHERING - NCEL is launching a women's ministry in January but until then we would like to spend time together in prayer and fellowship. We meet in room #206 at the top of the stairs and to the right.

Children and Youth Christmas Program

A Children and Youth Christmas program is scheduled for Sunday, December 10th during the Gathering/Sunday School Hour. The program will begin at 10 a.m. and will be followed by a reception in the Fellowship Hall. Contact Laurie Gienapp at if you have any questions.

Ministry Needs:

PAPER PRODUCTS - It is the end of our year and our budget is about tapped. We still need paper towels, toilet paper, snacks and cups to tide us over until 2018. If you can contribute anything towards this need, please leave items on the table in the Children's wing. Thank you in advance.

PICTURE FRAMES - the children's ministry is looking for old picture frames of all sizes, shapes, sorts, and styles. Anything that you may have sitting around collecting dust would be welcome! The children will be "refurbishing" them and using them to display their artwork on the walls. Please leave any frames on the table in the children's wing. Thank you!
