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.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. New Church Family once again helped sponsor the Relay For Life of Greater DeLand-Stetson. Our team "A Different Breed' so far has raised $1,106 (you can still turn in donations to Bob Austin). Reverend Donna Choate gave the Opening Invocation. Cindy Parker and Bob Austin, team members participated in the Survivors Ceremonies.
THE EASTER CHOIR NEEDS YOU. We are getting ready to do our Easter Music service and if you would like to join us to help sing praise to our God we would love to have you. You do not have to be a regular Choir Member, just wanting to sing praises. Let Reverend Donna know if you would like to join. We will be staying after service each Sunday till Easter to rehearse.
