The Adult Class, Disciples of Christ in a Multi-Faith World continues this Sunday at 9:30 a.m. in Weir Lounge. The Disciples of Christ are among many in this multi-faith world. People of different faith traditions are no longer foreigners living in a different county. They are often our neighbors, co-workers, even member of our extended family. This study is not a study of world religions; rather, our goal is to understand why we, in the tradition we call the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), should engage in interfaith relations, how those relations intersect with our Christian witness, and what gifts we as Disciples have to bring to such relationships.
This Sunday's Worship
"Responding to Need”
How often do we pass by someone in need (the guy on the sidewalk or the woman on the corner of a busy intersection) and just don't notice? The rich man saw Lazarus every day but did nothing to alleviate his poverty. Who is there that calls us to notice and respond to the needs in our community? What will it take to realize that it is we who are in most need (spiritual poverty) when we don't give?
Explore NCCCC's Labyrinth
The labyrinth is one of the oldest contemplative tools known to
humankind. We invite you to use the labyrinth to awaken your spirituality, simplify your hectic life, integrate mind, body, and spirit, engage in self-reflection, and forge a connection with our community. The labyrinth is located on the west side of the Church, adjacent to the patio and Memorial Garden. The labyrinth was designed and completed by Jeremy Shide, Chevy Chase Scout Troop 255, as his Eagle Scout project. The beautiful boxwoods and benches surrounding the labyrinth were recently added by Foster Price as his Eagle Scout Project. We thank Jeremy, Foster, and Scout Troop 255 and its leaders for creating these wonderful additions to our grounds.

New! Composting at NC4
The Green Team's newest ministry is composting at NC4! This will require everyone to stop and think about what you are throwing out to decide if your trash is "compostable waste." Use our new composting bin for food scraps, tea bags, paper towels and napkins, paper bags, coffee grounds and filters, and the compostable coffee cups, plates, and utensils we use at coffee hour. We will continue to recycle plastic bottles, glass, metal cans, aluminum foil, and paper such as our bulletins and other printed documents. Join the Green Team in helping the church reduce waste and turn composte into new soil!
