Small Churches

Small Churches

Small Churches (often referred to in other churches as Sunday School Classes) are an important ingredient to the health and well-being of the adults who call NMC their home church. It is in these small churches that meaningful relationships are established and developed. Large celebration in worship is great, but caring community is found in our small churches. There is something for everyone as you choose from any of the adult small churches that meet every Sunday morning. Take a look at some of our small church opportunities that are available and get plugged in to a community today!
