We are glad you dropped by to find out about us!

If you are looking for a church, you can be sure that you are welcome and we would love to meet you.  Life is too hard to not have the support of a church family!  Just in town for a visit?  Come join us- we will worship together and share our love and knowledge of our town with you!
Our Sunday service is casual and informal, so please feel free to come as you are, or to dress nicely, as you prefer.  Some people wear suits and hats, some people wear shorts and T shirts.  Our members are from all walks of life, and many ages, cultural, and ethnic diversities.  We enjoy sharing our creative talents to God's glory, and often have special presentations by members, such as poetry readings, rap songs, and worship dances.
We meet in the Loft (the upstairs meeting room owned by Ocean Hills Church) located on State Street in downtown Santa Barbara, which is more like a really large living room than a sanctuary.  We have a worship team of musicians and enjoy singing contemporary and gospel songs.  The pastor's message is always based on Bible passages.  Generally, the pastor explains the history and context of the passage, and then applies the message to our current lives and how we may use the message to inform our perceptions, feelings, and actions.  We share communion, using small individual cups of grape juice and crackers.  We get to know each other and pray for people's needs.  We believe that prayer is the best ministry we can share! 
If you have a question and cannot find the answer on these pages, please send us an email to ncwc@me.com.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
