Welcome to Nova Community Church! We’re glad you’re here today. Please tell us a little about yourself by filling out the blue communication card and placing it in the offering. After the service, stay for refreshments on the Plaza.


Parents, register your children on the Plaza before worship for NovaKids classes. Children leave worship during the offering music and meet their teachers in the foyer.


Refreshment schedule: Next week people with last names M-R are providing

Plaza Time refreshments, serving and cleaning up.
