Engage Sunday is our way of partnering with God in transforming his world for good. Every 8 weeks we intentionally seek to go out and serve others within our local community. We believe God requires us to be mercy givers and justice bringers in his world. We find it helpful to think of ourselves as caretakers of his valuable creation. Engage Sunday is a collective way of partnering with God through acts of mercy and responding to injustices within our community. Of course we don’t have to wait for an engage Sunday to serve others, but we do want people to know that following Jesus involves faith in action. So look out for our next engage and come and join with us. You don’t have to be a regular around NCR in order to join with us.
There are a variety of activities available in which both young and old may be involved. We encourage each serving group to share lunch with those they are serving and in so doing help foster more meaningful connections.
Our next Engage Sunday: November 27th, 2016
Worship in Song for all: Prior to each Engage we gather from 9 am to worship God with our voices before using our hands! This is our Sunday@9 space and you are welcome to join us. Worship isn’t just about singing. Declaring with our voices that ‘God is God and we are not’ is a transformative action.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the early start for participants in the Run for the Young as part of our November Engage Sunday there will be no 9.00am gathering prior to Engage activities on November 27th.
The final Engage for 2016 is on December 11th. This is our Community Christmas Banquet where we Celebrate the Christmas Story at 10.00am followed by a range of activities for kids and youth as well as a free lunch of gourmet burgers plus an ice-cream sundae bar.
