General Information

 

Dear NCF family,

            Blessings and peace from the leadership of Northfield.  NCF is altering its schedule and service structure until further notice due to COVID-19. Here are the event/schedule changes:

  • Currently we have the 11am service held in the sanctuary, with overflow in the APR. If seated in the APR you are required to wear a mask. No masks are required in the sanctuary.  In both rooms there will be seating according to social distancing guidelines.  Livestream will remain available. No Sunday school or lunch.
  • VBS is cancelled for 2020: A message from Mike Smith, Children’s Ministry Director: Together with the elders I must, with a sad heart, announce the cancellation of VBS 2020. Knowing the importance of this ministry, we held off as long as possible, hoping that we might be able to have it later in the summer, but that no longer seems possible.  The curriculum materials that were already purchased will be saved for next year. Since VBS is a major outreach for our church I would like to offer an option to have an outreach in your own back yard. Child Evangelism Fellowship has three available dates in their summer Backyard Bible Club program. This is not a VBS substitution. Nothing can replace the VBS experience, however the CEF clubs are very evangelical and fun. If you would like more information please contact me at 309-202-0724 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The open dates won't last long so if you are interested contact me soon. ~Mike
  • Bike Trip 2020 - Organizers have created a day-ride as an alternative: This year the Bike Trip will be a 50-mile ride to Eureka and back on the old Bike Trip route. Snacks will be waiting for us in Eureka and then a late lunch will be provided at NCF when we return. This day ride is open to anyone. Meet at NCF on Saturday, August 1 at 7:00am ready to ride! Bring $10 to cover food costs. Please text Josh Litwiller if you plan to come: 309-840-0806
  • Church Camp is cancelled for 2020. But mark your calendars for Church Camp 2121: July 26-August 1
