Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Wear?
While we are serious about our faith and practice in Jesus Christ, we are typically dressed casually and comfortably. Attire ranges from business casual to fresh-off-the-beach. Come as you are! (Although we do prefer no narrow heeled shoes in our Auditorium to help us care for the wood floor.) Our desire is for you to feel comfortable and welcome.
Tell me about the Services
Our services consist of contemporary music and utilizes a band (keys, electric/acoustic/bass guitars, drums, percussion, and occasional surprises) with vocals. Although it is contemporary, there is an appropriate and occasional mix of traditional songs (with current arrangements) mixed in. We offer solid and practical Biblical teaching, usually in a single Book with occasional topical messages, along with a monthly communion and weekly offering. Our Sunday services run approximately 1 hour at 8:45am, 10:45am and 6:00pm.
Are there different venues?
On Sunday mornings, we offer live worship and message in our main Auditorium and provide a video feed of the service into our Chapel and outdoor Tent. Our Sunday evening service is held in the Chapel. All services and venues experience offerings, video presentations and communion.
What Is available for my children through young adults?

Our Story Caffe is open for food and beverages on Sundays from 8am-1pm and 5:30pm-7:30pm. The Caffe is also open Monday-Friday (8am -4pm).
What Should I know about the offering
If you are our guest at church, we do not expect you to give. Please feel comfortable letting the offering bag pass by you. However, when you begin to make NCCC your home, we encourage you to commit to tithing an amount the Lord guides you to give, and participate as you feel led with our special offerings. We also provide online giving for your convenience.
Where do I park if I have limited mobility?
On the west and south sides of our church property, we have a large number of handicapped parking spaces on flat surfaces with easy walk up to our church buildings. We also offer Guest Parking on Sunday mornings located on the south end of our property close to our Chapel and Children’s buildings.

Tell me about Calvary Chapels
Calvary Chapel is a loose affiliation of churches that share a common emphasis on verse-by-verse expository teaching, evangelism and the grace of God. Each Calvary Chapel is self-governing and financially independent. Here at North Coast Calvary Chapel we are governed by a Board of Directors. They are responsible for setting and approving the church’s budgets and policies.
