Lunch with the pastor

Our goal at NewChurch LIVE is to help everyone feel comfortable, connected, and welcome. There is always room for new faces and families in the NCL community.

“Lunch with the Pastor” is a monthly opportunity for NCL to say hello and welcome folks who are relatively new to NewChurch LIVE. There is absolutely no pressure to attend one of these lunches; some people come on their first week, others might wait a few months to decide. Signing up and joining happens whenever you feel you would like to.

The agenda is super simple for these lunches – we are there to connect. Often there are others in attendance who are relatively new to the NewChurch LIVE community as well as a few who have been around longer. You can find out more about what it’s like to participate in community service projects and small groups, ask questions, or just have a friendly visit while eating delicious pizza at Pastor Chuck’s favorite restaurant, Bertuccis! Lunch is open anyone interested in NCL, and we pick up the tab.

Lunch with the Pastor happens once a month, typically on the 3rd Sunday of the month unless that conflicts with a holiday. Watch the calendar for details, and sign up at the welcome table in the lobby after church, on our Facebook page, or by emailing
