NSMC will have its annual church retreat at Menno Haven Camp & Retreat Center on Friday, January 30 - Sunday, February 1 (see Google map).

Please note: There will not be a worship service at the Civic Center on February 1.
The season of Epiphany focuses on Christ being revealed to the world. As the people of God, we seek for Christ to be revealed in and through all we are and do. During our Epiphany series, we will take a closer look at Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, seeking to lay a foundation in which the way we engage Scripture and one another reveals the living presence of Jesus Christ.
Our pastor Roland now posts copies of past sermons on his sermon blog. It's a great resource if you missed the service or want to revisit what you heard.
As a community we believe God is leading us to be involved in partnering together with First Baptist Church in Waukegan in ministering to neighborhood children. We encourage members of our community to consider in what ways the Spirit of God might be leading you to participate. The kind of commitment needed is about one (1) Wednesday night per month, from 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm. If you wish to participate or need more information, please contact Roland.
First Baptist Church is at 401 N. Genesee Street in Waukegan. Park in the church parking lot off of Sheridan Road, one street east of Genesee behind the church (see Google map).

iMissional.org provides resources and a forum for conversation for facilitating missional transformation in the life of the church as it seeks to participate with God in God's mission. Our pastor Roland writes regular posts called Missional Matters exploring what it means to be missional.
