Launch Service

Yesterday Northwest Community Church hosted our first official worship service in Bella Vista. It was exciting to see the months of planning and prayer finally come together as God faithfully provided the people and resources needed to launch a new local church. It was encouraging to see 73 adults and 7 children gathering together for worship, prayer, fellowship, and teaching. Our worship service reminded me that there is nothing like the local church in whole world. We are truly apart of something far greater than ourselves when we serve in Christ's church...what an amazing privilege!

We kicked off NCC with a series entitled "What's Church Got to Do With It?" by looking at the role of a great church in our life. The phrase that will guide this series as we unpack what Scripture has to say about a great church is...

"A great church exists when people make a great commitment to the great commandments and the great commission and do those with great compassion."

Even though our new church is only 1 day old and we are made up of imperfect people, we want God to shape Northwest into a great church. Join us next Sunday and invite some more imperfect people to check out Northwest Community Church.
