What to Expect

When you come to NHBC, expect to find friendly people, inspiring worship, and an opportunity to take your next step with Christ. Whether you are brand new to the faith, have been serving the Lord for years, or are just beginning your faith journey, we have ministries to help you move forward in your walk with God.


We seek to provide every individual opportunities to connect with God. In each of our services, you will find a variety of folks, some in coat and tie, some in jeans and a T-shirt, all worshiping the Savior. The 8:30 Sunday service has more of a classic feel, while the 11:00 service includes a praise team and worship band. All services include a message based on the Bible and applied to life.
