Give an Hour:

An NLC Church Council Challenge!

Serve Others | Build Relationships | Be Connected

Give an HourNLC's Church Council challenges you to "Give an Hour"!

What is "Give an Hour"?
"Give an Hour" is a challenge to volunteer at something new for one hour every six months. Relationships and serving other is at the core of "Give an Hour," so we invite you to bring a friend with as well!

Why "Give an Hour"?
Our hope as a council is that this hour will have people be more aware of different activities and missions within NLC, connect and build new relationships, and most importantly, follow in the footsteps of Jesus by serving others.

We believe that it is God's design that each of us can make unique and personal contributions to our church community. When these contributions happen, it will have a multiplied effect on the entire community.
