Welcome to North Side
One of the first things you need to know about NSBC is that we have two distinct styles of worship services: Blended and Contemporary. If you’re not sure which you prefer, it’s a good idea to visit each of these services to determine which is the best fit for you and your family. Our senior pastor, Van Houser delivers the same message during each service.
“Blended worship” is our way of describing worship that is neither fully traditional nor fully contemporary. Our senior worship pastor Gary Wood conducts the Higher Praise adult choir and orchestra in a blend of majestic choral arrangements, contemporary choruses, as well as a few familiar hymns. A unique feature of this service is some fun banter between Gary and Pastor Van you won’t want to miss! This service meets at 11:00am, and serves those in our congregation who attend Bible Study at 9:30am.
Our Contemporary worship service is a relatively new addition, beginning in the spring of 2008 as a Saturday evening service before migrating to Sunday mornings in 2010. You may be surprised to observe the wide variety of ages represented in this service—from first graders attending with their parents to a good number of senior adults as well. The Contemporary service is led by Caleb Lain, Lance Gibson, and a very talented worship team intent on drawing the congregation into the presence of God through worship. This service meets at 9:30am, and serves those in our congregation who attend Bible Study at 11:00am.
