Support our carpet fund

The NCF Board of Directors has established a "Carpet Fund" to help us replace the 15-year-old carpeting in the sanctuary. The target is $3,000. A contractor friend has agreed to donate installation labor, so our expense will be for materials only. The board has authorized a special collection on April 30 to be dedicated to the carpet fund.  If you can help with an additional special gift, please see our treasurer, Jeff De Young. Our goal is to get the new carpeting in place within 3 to 6 months.
