Because we know you may have a few questions about attending our service, we’ve provided you with some answers.
How early should I arrive for service?.
Worship starts at 10:30 am preceded at 10:25 with chimes and the lighting of the candles. Some folks arrive as early as 9:45 for choir practice and preparing the worship space. And some folks come in after the start. Whenever you come, you are welcome.
Where do I park?.
Parking, including handicapped accessible spaces, is available in front of the church. Visitor parking spaces are marked for those visiting with us for the first time.
Is the building Handicap-Accessible?.
The Sanctuary and all parts of the church campus are accessible. If you have any questions or require assistance, please see one of the greeters or any church member.
What if I need Hearing Assistance?.
Hearing-assistance devices are available. Ask a greeter or any member if you would like to use one.
How will I get to know people?
We wear name-tags to make it easier for you to get to know us. A greeter will help you make a temporary name-tag if you wish.
Can you tell me a little about the worship service?.
Our service is informal in style and changes a little from week to week. The bulletin (handed out at the entry) provides a printed order of worship. The length of our service varies, but usually runs about 75 minutes.
What do children and teens do during the worship service?.
Children are always welcome in church. The little people can join us in worship (we don’t mind some chatter) or we have a nursery for those up to age 5. Older children worship with us until part-way through the service, when there’s a special time for them and then we “sing them out” to Sunday School. The congregation loves it when children and teens offer parts of the worship service..
For more information on Sunday School see Christian Education.
Is there a Nursery?
Child care is available up to age 5 in our fully-equipped nursery near the worship area. Our nursery attendant is assisted by various volunteers in the congregation to care for the young ones who come to church.
.For more information on the nursery see Christian Education.
Must I be a member to take communion?.
Our communion table is open to all – whether guest, friend or member. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of the month. We have a wheat-free/gluten free option for bread, and serve juice instead of wine.
Who is welcome at Northshore UCC?.
Whether you are a believer, a doubter or a seeker, you are welcome at Northshore United Church of Christ. Young and old, tattooed or not, happy or sad, musical or tone-deaf, in hiking clothes or your best dress – all are welcome.
Is there a dress code?.
There is no dress code at NUCC. Come dressed up or casual – come as you are.
Do you have coffee and visiting after the service?.
After the worship service, we serve coffee and tea along with light refreshments. We invite you to stay and visit a while.
What about smoking?.
The church is a public facility and smoking is not allowed in the building, parking lot or on the property.
