NCCS Football Success Under the Lights

As the sun was setting, a capacity crowd had gathered to watch the first football game in NCCS history under the lights on Friday, September 28. The NCCS fans enjoyed pre-game meals together as they awaited the start of the game. Before the game started Coach Miles thanked Mr. Clingman at center field and presented him with a signed team football and a plaque commemorating the important event. Then the team took the field amidst cheers, pep band music, and spirit hand clappers (given to the Lower School students). It took only 15 seconds for NCCS to score its first touchdown against Cross Keys High School and the crowd exploded with excitement. NCCS continued to score throughout the game, which ended with a 47-7 victory!  We are proud of the Varsity football team for its hard work and grateful for the new lights on the field! The next home game will be on October 12 against Providence Christian at 7:30pm. Go Eagles!

Friday Night Football Under the Lights at NCCS!

Are you ready for Friday night football under the lights? Come out to this Friday’s varsity football game (9/28) for the FIRST EVER game UNDER THE LIGHTS at NCCS as we take on Cross Keys High School! The game lights2will begin at 7:30pm, with gates opening at 6:00pm so that everyone can fellowship together before the game. There will be food available from Zorba’s Kitchen (featuring their famous gyros along with a vegetarian hummus gyro), Johnny’s Bar-B-Que, or hamburgers and hot dogs fresh off the grill.

Lower School students received a ticket in their Friday folders, entitling them to a free NCCS spirit hand clapper when they bring their ticket to the game. Middle and Upper School students will be able to get their free tickets on the patio in between the Annex buildings before the game.*

Additionally, there will be a school wide pep rally at 2:15 on the field that day to get ready for the big night.

Be sure to make plans now to attend this historic game under the lights! (If you haven’t already joined, this is a great time to join the Eagles Booster Club, with home game admission included at some levels!) GO EAGLES!

*Please note this year’s policy regarding student tickets – if students leave the gates during the game, they will be charged for readmission. It is our desire to keep our students safe and discourage roaming around the campus during the game. Thank you for going over this policy with your children before you come to the game.

7th/8th Grade Retreat - Day 2 Update

My heart is full as I write this. What an amazing time of worship we had tonight! God really spoke to some of our students tonight and we're still learning of some decisions they made, including a few that became believers tonight! Praise God!

After breakfast this morning, our 7th & 8th graders spent some time hearing from senior, Lauren Titus, about what it means to have a quiet time and why it's important. Then they had their quiet times and our morning worship together. Al brought another great word from Timothy that led into some great discussions in the cabin groups. After lunch, we rotated stations for some recreation time. We played a few games, but I loved watching dodgeball (and occasionally throwing a ball at an unsuspecting boy who didn't know I was playing).

All our free time options were open again today, but we also had auditions for our talent show for tonight. After dinner, we started into our worship time. What an amazing night! We could've easily pulled over and spent the entire night praying for and with each other and hearing what God is doing in these students' hearts and lives. We went to cabin groups to share and we're still hearing the awesome stories!

After some extended time, we gathered back in the chapel for our talent show. We've got some talented students in 7th and 8th grade! Seniors Kendall Crowe, Cassidy Kelley and Michael Lerzo helped host and put together the show and it was wild. We had everything from dancing teachers, to yo-yo tricks, to skits, to singers, to songs accompanied by a ukelele and even some senior lip-syncing! It was so fun!

Although, we're getting tired (and you can tell it's hitting everyone), we are excited for one more day together! Be praying that God would finish out what He's set out to do this week!

See y'all on the other side tomorrow!

6th Grade Retreat Day 2/7th & 8th Grade Day 1 Update

Basketballs, voices and 6th graders running. That’s what we woke up to at 6:30am this morning! Our 6th grade boys woke up early, so we were all up early playing in the Dome, talking in rooms and encouraging the boys to take showers! The girls also got an early start on the day as well. After some breakfast, we talked about Quiet Times. Some students have never done a devotion time before so it was really special. We had some worship time with our Senior Worship team singing songs and doing motions and then Nathan talked about Ephesians 4 and building each other up in our words and actions, having the eyes of Christ and being imitators of God.

After worship our 7th and 8th graders arrived and started their day off learning our retreat guidelines and getting schedules and room assignments. While we were doing this, 6th graders had lunch and then 7th and 8th grade had lunch. Then we had a middle school-wide scavenger. Our winning group will be announced tomorrow morning! During free time, our 6-8th graders were able to do the euro-bungy, zipline and water activities, as well as hanging out in the game room, Dome and snack/coffee shop.

After some cleaning up, 6th grade had dinner and a group picture and hit the road for home! It was an amazing time together and I’m so grateful for all that we’ve learned together! Be sure to ask the students about the retreat and what their favorite parts were and what they learned.

The 7th and 8th graders ate dinner and went into worship with our senior worship team and Algernon Tennyson, our speaker for the week. Algernon brought a sharp message that hit home with a lot of our students about stepping up, no matter how old or young they are. In our cabin groups afterwards, we had a lot of students praying for each other and really sharing some of their struggles. This conversation was led by our seniors and went so well that some of the students were late to our next meeting!

We ended the night with the guys and girls dividing up and talking about what it means to be a gentleman and a lady. Our teachers and seniors really led the way with this and I’ve got to say, it was one of the more powerful retreat moments we’ve been a part of. I’m super grateful for our team investing in these students in more ways than just in the classroom, but teaching life to our students! And a big shout-out to our seniors really leading the way by example and pouring into these students that look up to them!

It’s been a very full day, but a great day. And who knows…maybe we’ll get to sleep in until 7 tomorrow!
