We Do Church For People Who Don't Like Church

Since its inception in 1992, NHCC has been committed to the idea of a church for people who don’t attend church.  Since that time, NHCC has continued to grow and reach out to the people of KC’s Northland. While we believe that our church can make a difference in your life, we also know that no church can meet the needs of everyone.

So what’s different about NHCC?

  • We don’t stand and sing for 30 minutes. We do have an awesome band that plays music you’ve heard before. (Think Kenney Chesney, John Mayer, Sting, Coldplay.)
  • We don’t preach a lot of pie-in-the-sky bye-and-bye. We do present a logical, focused message of truth and grace that enables people to make the most of the here-and-now.
  • We don’t condemn people for being imperfect. We do challenge people to settle for nothing less than their best.
  • We don’t believe church has to go long to be good. We do design our services to make the most of the 60 minutes people give us.
  • We don’t have a typical church facility. We do have state-of-the-art sound and video, theater seating, amazing spaces for kids and teenagers (and our bathrooms rock, too).

If that’s what you are looking for, then our church was created with you in mind. You might find another church you like better, but you at least owe it to yourself to give us a try! We meet each Sunday morning at 9:30 am and 11:00 am. No matter which service you attend, you’ll have an identical experience full of powerful worship, contemporary music, and a God-inspired message.   







Sunday Experience

Here are a few comments from some folks who recently attended NHCC:

We love North Heartland. We feel so welcome. The music is great, the messages are so relevant, and I cannot say enough good things about Adventureland.
— JC
I’m an atheist but I enjoy attending services with my mother and daughter here. It’s a wonderful church with a comfortable environment and a friendly, accepting congregation.
— JS
This is the most amazing place to worship. I loved every minute of the time I spent there. I try to go as many Sundays as I can.
— SC
Different from any other church I’ve been to…Loved it
— BP

Have a few more questions before committing to an hour?






What are your service times?

We offer identical services on Sunday mornings at 9:30a and 11:00a.  Our services generally last one hour and our Adventureland program for children birth to 5th grade is offered during both services (except during certain special services such as Pancakes and Praise).

How do I get to NHCC?

We are located in the Northland of Kansas City. Take highway 152 to Green Hills Road. Exit and head north, take the very first street on your left (88th St.).  Click here to go to the map.

What Do You Believe?

We are committed to the Bible as our guide for living and to the necessity of salvation through faith in the resurrected Jesus of Nazareth. However, we realize that not everyone has arrived at this understanding. That is why we are a “safe place” for those who would like to examine the claims of Christianity. We invite all truth seekers to attend our services and learn more. For more detailed information on our beliefs, click here.

What is the style of your worship service?

Our programming team and teaching pastor work hand in hand to utilize a variety of elements (dramas, multimedia, videos, and music) to create a service that clearly communicates biblical truth in a way that engages individuals and invites them to enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ or to grow deeper in their relationship with Him. Our services are best described as contemporary and relevant. Click here to see a sample of the Sunday experience.

What is available for my kids?

Children birth to 5th grade are certain to love our Adventureland program. Children have the opportunity to learn biblical truths in ways that are relevant to their lives in age appropriate ways. Adventureland runs during both services.

Students 6th-12th grade will enjoy our Student Ministry-The Well- which meets Sunday mornings  during our 9:30 am service (The Well Coffee Shop is open 9:15-9:30 am and 10:30-10:55 am for snacks and hang out time). Students are invited into the main service at 11 am to sit in our Student Section (west front corner of the auditorium).

If you would like your children to join you in the service, they are welcome. If they get fussy or chatty,  or you need to step out for some reason, you can also view the services from one of our additional viewing locations. NHCC offers a Nursing Mother's Room (located through the Women's restroom) and  a Family Room (located near Adventureland Check-In).
