Feeding the Hungry and Laundry Love

  • Feeding the Hungry - Every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month Nova people gather at a church in Gardena to prepare a hot meal and serve it to anyone who is in need. 
  • Laundry Love - Every 2nd Saturday of the month, Nova people gather at a local laundromat and provide laundry services for anyone who is in need.

Nova Class

  • Love In Chaos. Beginning September 10th. We don’t have to look far to see division in our world. And in many ways, we are confused, angry, and disillusioned by all the chaos we’re experiencing. How should Christians respond to the chaos? What does it look like to live faithfully in these strange and challenging times?

    Love in Chaos helps us answer these questions and shows that there is good news for a divided culture. Learn what it looks like to follow Jesus and obey his commands even in a time of chaos.

Women's Study

  • Women’s Bible Study -- women college age and above can connect and grow together through gathering around God’s word. This group meets at Nova on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm. For more information, contact Susan Welch (310-371-6295).
