If you are worshipping from home and would like communion, please call the church at 217-429-4278 and we will make arrangements to get communion together for you.


Food Pantry - The first Sunday of each month is Food Pantry Sunday. We use this Sunday to help stock our food pantry. The carts near the entrances are there for you to place your donated goods. We also take monetary donations and will do the shopping if you would rather donate in that way. Food pantry operation hours are on Tuesdays from 9am-12pm. If you would like to volunteer to help out in the food pantry or if you need a list of items we give out, please contact the office at 217-429-4278.


Kidzone– If you would like to help out in any of our children’s ministries, please check the box on your connect card or let the office know.


Communion Help– If you would like to help serve communion on Sunday mornings, please contact Andrea Zelhart at 217-855-5456 or check the box on your connect card and turn it in to an offering plate at the back of the sanctuary.


Directory Update: Please fill out an information update sheet for each member of your family. Extra sheets are available in the office or at the Welcome Center or there is a Google Doc form on the NWCC app homepage and on the website under the contact heading. The sheets will be used to make a new phone directory for members and regular attenders. Please turn in to the office or in the offering plate by Sunday, January 30th.
