Each Christmas we bless our community in different ways. We would like each family to choose one or more of these ways to give to others this Christmas season as part of our Advent Adventure.

ADVENT ADVENTURE

BLESSING OUR COMMUNITIES

Advent Adventure is an opportunity for NCC Families to demonstrate generosity and be a blessing to our community throughout the Christmas season.  Each campus has different ways to participate which allows NCC to be blessing to multiple families and community organizations.  

CAMPUS SPECIFIC OPPORTUNITIES

Every weekend NCC provides food for students who are experiencing food insecurity.  The need becomes even greater during the two-week Christmas Break from school.  Boxes of Hope provide enough food for this two-week vacation, so those students and their families have enough food.

Some of the students in our community don’t always get a gift for Christmas because they have a parent who is in jail.  Angel Tree is a way for those children to receive a Christmas gift.  These gifts not only help them feel like other kids, but it also helps them know that they are loved by our church and by Jesus.

NCC is partnering with YCAP (Yamhill Community Action Partnership) to provide local families in need with new socks, gloves, and hats to help keep people warm in the winter.  Bring your new package of socks, gloves, and/or hats to NCC and we will deliver that donation to YCAP to help families in Yamhill County.

Bring canned food to help fill the shelves at Newberg FISH.  Newberg FISH helps families make sure they have enough food for each day.  Please bring canned vegetables (corn, green beans, peas) or canned soup.

The holidays can be extremely hard for foster kids.  NCC supports foster kids each year be collecting $20 gift cards that we are able to distribute to foster kids throughout Yamhill County.

BOXES OF HOPE

AN ADVENT ADVENTURE OPPORTUNITY

We have the opportunity at Christmas time to provide hope to members of our community. Boxes of Hope provide food for local families during Christmas Break while the children are not receiving breakfast and lunch at school. Families are encouraged to take a Box of Hope and, using the attached shopping list, fill it with food. Boxes are due back to the church by December 12 so they can be delivered to the schools before Christmas Break begins.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Please take a box and fill it with the items on the list. This is a great way to teach your children about being generous to others. 

It is important that only the items on the list are purchased for the box. We want each box to be the same so each family receives the same amount of food. lf one box is overflowing and a neighbor’s is “not-so-overflowing,” this is a difficult situation to explain.

PACKING LIST:

DUE BACK - DECEMBER 12TH | IN CAMPUS LOBBY
  • 5 cans of vegetables (14-15oz) (corn, beans, peas) 
  • 1 plastic bottle of jelly (20-30oz) 
  • 1 plastic jar of peanut butter (28oz) 
  • 2 cans of Chicken Noodle Soup (26oz) 
  • 1 bag of dry pinto beans (4 lb) 
  • 1 bag of white rice (5 lb)
  • 2 boxes of Mac & Cheese 
  • 2 cans of chicken or tuna
  • 5 cans of fruit 
  • 1 can of spaghetti sauce 
  • 1 large bag of spaghetti 
  • 1 large box of instant potatoes 
  • 2 packets of brown gravy mix 
  • 2 boxes or one large bag of cereal

No glass bottles or expired items. Please do not seal the box. Return your box no later than Sunday, December 12th.
