When & Where
Our services are at 8:30 and 10am each Sunday morning. We meet in a historic church building at 700 Bonnie Brae Blvd in central Denver near the University of Denver, Wash Park and the Cherry Creek shopping area. Just find Bonnie Brae Ice Cream (you already know where it is!) and go north a block to the intersection of University and Exposition Ave. There is parking behind the church, which can be accessed from Exposition Ave. There is also parking along Bonnie Brae Blvd on Sundays. You can enter the church from the parking lot or from Bonnie Brae Blvd.
What to Expect
What should you expect? Our services last about an hour and include singing, prayers, a time of teaching, and updates on key events. We sing both newer songs written by modern artists and some well-known hymns. During the teaching time (sermon), we typically explore a passage of the Bible and consider how it applies to our lives. Once a month we celebrate communion (also called the Lord’s Supper or Eucharist). It’s open to anyone who follows Jesus, but participation is optional.
You don’t have to dress up to attend NDC. In fact, we’re pretty casual and laid back. When you come, hopefully you’ll meet some new people and connect in meaningful ways with others. But if you just want to come, sit in the back, and “check things out,” that’s fine too. Our main goal is to help everyone on their journey of faith, whether you’ve been a Christian for decades or you’re exploring spirituality for the first time.
We resumed in-person gatherings in early 2021. Adults do not need to RSVP for one of our services (unless your kids will be attending NDC Kids – see below). Also, please read through the section on Health Guidelines so that you know what to expect.
ADA access is available at both services. We have handicapped parking spots and a ramp is located on the southwest side of the building (facing Bonnie Brae Blvd.) ADA restrooms are located on the main level.
We continue to follow the guidelines of the CDC, State of Colorado, and City of Denver. While we cannot eliminate every possible risk, we have taken numerous precautions to create a safe environment. When you attend on Sunday, here is what we ask of you:
Stay Home If You Have Symptoms
Please stay home if you are sick. We cannot over-emphasize that this is the primary way of protecting each other. If you or others in your family have any symptoms of illness, or have been exposed to others that you know are ill, please stay home.
We continue to take physical, emotional, and social health seriously at NDC. Masks are not required but recommended when in close proximity with others, especially those at greater risk.
Seats in our sanctuary have been arranged to provide social distancing. Hallways and foyers have been cleared as much as possible and two additional entry/exits have been added to the sanctuary area to reduce congestion. And we have lots of hand sanitizer stations in the building . . . please use them when you enter and exit!
NDC has never been a “livestreaming” church. We think being together in-person is central to the experience of worshiping together and being part of a community of faith. In fact, one of our core values is presence.
During the pandemic, we provided our 8:30 worship service on Youtube for those who were sick, quarantining, or at high risk. Because vaccination is so widely available now and the risk is much lower, we have discontinued our livestream. We hope you’ll join us in-person! If you would like to participate in our worship services but cannot regulary join us in-person, please contact us so that we can serve you.
Families on Sundays
NDC Kids offers children environments for kids birth through preschool at both 8:30 & 10am services where they can learn about God. Please note that at this time, we offer elementary environments (kindergarten through 5th grade) only at the 10am service. We have an amazing group of volunteers that love investing in your kids and helping you nurture their faith. Each secure kids’ environment is led by background-checked, trained, volunteers.
NDC Students, youth 6th grade and older, meet most Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm in the Loft at NDC.
