College is a place where your faith becomes your own.
At North Central, you have the opportunity to grow deeper in your faith. In additional to the weekly student-led Christian interdenominational worship service (Focus), our office facilitates Bible studies, small groups, retreats, and prayer groups. Also, many students find a home in one of the many faith communities and churches in the Naperville area, often just blocks from campus.
As a part of a newer offering from our office, we've created 12:5. This bi-weekly worship service is a campus-wide gathering - an encouraging time of Christian worship and community for students, faculty, and staff. The brief, 20-minute service includes lively music, a devotional message from other Cardinals, and some time to be the NCC family with one another. Lunch is provided after each service.
The name of this worship service and its purpose are rooted in Romans 12:5, which reads: “In the same way, though there are many of us, we are one body in Christ, and individually we belong to each other.”
For the duration of the 2019-2020 school year, 12:5 will occur on every other Tuesday, beginning on the second Tuesday of the Fall Semester (8/27/19) and Spring Semester (1/14/20). Please click on the main 12:5 page to view the upcoming speaker schedule for the Fall 2019 Semester, as well as audio clips of past speakers and worship set-lists from past services.
