Podcast

UPDATE ON PODCAST AVAILABILITY! Services are being recorded as in the past, but there will be a delay in their availability. We appreciate your patience while we get caught up. 

NFC started podcasting the full Sunday morning worship service in mid-2005. These online services allow traveling church members and our missionaries overseas to continue to be part of and linked to the church by being able to participate in regular Sunday worship, wherever they may be.

The audio program from each Sunday worship service is made available as an iTunes Podcast. This version of the service includes chapter markers so you can skip directly to different parts of the service. Services are usually updated each Sunday afternoon.

Other events held in the NFC Sanctuary are recorded, including weddings and memorial services.
