For years we have collected food items each month on Compassion Sunday to donate to a local food pantry. In light of a large number of requests for financial help from attendees of NCC (for food, bills, etc.) we will now be collecting monetary donations as well on Compassion Sunday, in order to better assist those NCC family members who sometimes need a little help. Compassion Sunday will now be the first Sunday of each month. Please consider donating non-perishable food items, as well as dropping a donation into the Compassion fund container in the narthex (the Culligan water jug).
