Impact the community!

As we seek to communicate and share the Vision, Mission, Values and Strategy of NLC it is important that we continue to look at everything we do with a clear and critical eye. As we grow we will be faced with an increasing amount of opportunities and need to have a very clear understanding of what we are doing and why we are doing them. This document will serve as a starting place for this to happen.

For the sake of clarity and simplicity we have used bullet points. The flow is movement oriented. We wanted to start with the intention and purpose for each of our five strategic areas, answering the WHY question. We then answer the SO; so we will because we want to. Finally we want everyone to see then that there are a number of things that they can then do or follow through with.


Intention & Purpose:

  • community is part of our identity
  • evangelism/ mission
  • meeting physical needs (commanded to)
  • fun together
  • see Kingdom come on earth
  • build relationships with one another and our neighbors

In order to facilitate this we will...

  • partner with numerous community organizations both formally and informally.
  • host community events like..
    • Car Winterization
    • Take It To The Streets
    • Tree Lighting
  • furniture ministry
  • Breakfast Table
  • Care Ministry and benevolence

Opportunity for NLCers...

  • get involved in your community wherever your passions lie.
  • join a planning team for one of our events.
  • help at one of our host events.
  • donate furniture or help with moving.
  • serve at the Breakfast Table.
  • give to benevolence.
