NORTH END COMMUNITY CHURCH – WHO ARE WE?
"A little country church in a busy city" is how North End Community Church was once described.
What a wonderful phrase that embodies this close knit fellowship of believers caring for each other in prayer and practice as the Holy Spirit leads us to grow in faith in God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. We are a family of families_noemailprised of young children, youth, singles, and seniors. Praying with and for each other is a major emphasis that is encouraged by offering opportunities of daily gathering for shared prayer, a prayer chain that is easily accessible for the public as well as the congregation, and elders that visit and pray with individuals or families in their home, over the telephone or wherever they are.
A non-denominational Body of Christ, but following the example of the Berean Church, we we_noemaile God's message with eagerness and examine the Scriptures daily to see if these things are so. We take Bible literacy seriously, and we hold each other accountable for handling accurately the Word of truth.
Our love for one another is demonstrated by a strong desire to be involved with each other's lives whether it is for an afternoon picnic, a church family camping trip, or giving of our time and ability to help with a car, home repair, or someone who is shut-in. Our love for our_noemailmunity and the unsaved is practically demonstrated locally in many ways, from preparing brown bag lunches for hungry school children in need, to supporting teen crisis ministries through Youth for Christ, and significant involvement in foster care and adoption. Globally, we follow our Lord's_noemailmandment to share the Gospel with all the world, through hands-on and financial support of missions in Cambodia and Albania.
North End Community Church certainly does have that little country church feel in some respects, but as we seek to please, honor, and glorify God, we engage our larger busier city and the world that needs to know about Him and to_noemaile to faith in Him.
