PLUGGING IN is a two-part, fun and informative workshop that's offered several times a year.  It explains our vision, explores the essentials of the Christian faith, and helps you identity your purpose and role in the Body of Christ.  You'll get to connect with other people fairly new to NBC.  You'll get to discover your SHAPE (what?) and how you're wired up.  You'll find out whether you're orange or blue or yellow or green (what?).  Okay, okay... you'll just have to come and see.  

PART 1 is PLUG INTO FAITH, and it covers the basics of faith:

  • Salvation
  • Foundations of our Faith
  • Worship
  • Baptism
  • Prayer & Fasting
  • Tithes & Offerings
  • Spiritual Growth

PART 2 is PLUG INTO FAMILY and it covers our role in the Body of Christ... God's family:

  • The Relational Aspect of God
  • Your SHAPE (Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, Experiences)
  • Communion
  • Roles & Responsibilities In The Body of Christ
  • Investing & Inviting

Everyone who completes the workshop receives an invitation to become a partner at NBC.  While we're a family that is open to all people seeking God or seeking truth, partners are those who 1) affirm their faith in Jesus Christ, 2) agree with NBC's vision and shared beliefs, 3) commit to finding and actively engaging in their role as a critical part of our church family, and 4) pledge their tithe to our church.  Those who occupy teaching and leadership roles at NBC are partners.  Yes, we know, some churches have membership, with certain rights and privileges.  We, instead, are founded on the Biblical model of partnership established by the Apostle Paul.

Philippians 1:4-6 "In my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

Philemon 1:6 "I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of every good thing we share for the sake of Christ."
