The members of The Northwest Lincoln Church of Christ wish to express a warm welcome to you. Please pause a few moments on your Internet journey to see what we are about.
We are a group of individuals that realize the Universe and ourselves did not just appear by chance. Just the opposite is true as evidenced in the complexity of all that surrounds us. We believe God created everything that is seen and unseen. If God went to such effort to bring about the world and all it contains, there must be a reason or plan. We believe that plan for humanity is revealed in the Bible.
The Bible contains a wealth of information on how we are to handle relationships with God and each other. Through a misunderstanding or incomplete information others have characterized God as mean or uncaring. In our studies we have learned that God does not call us to pain and misery, but instead, calls us to be his children. What loving parent would intentionally harm their child? The same is true with God the Father. He desires the best for those that follow his guidance.
Come study with us as we gain a better understanding of:

Who are we?
We are the Northwest church of Christ located at the corners of 1st & Adams in Lincoln Nebraska.
Who are the churches of Christ?
When many people look for a church to attend, they go and observe the services, the atmosphere, the activities offered, etc. They are looking for something to entertain them or meet their personal idea of worship.
The question at hand is one that is rarely weighed in some hearts and minds. “For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:10)
We at the church of Christ worship our God according to the Bible only. We don’t try to entertain each other so you will find no grand piano, organ, band or glamour in the worship assemblies. What you will find is worship to God taken directly from His word with no addition or subtraction, (Revelation 22:18-19).
The church of Christ has no creed book; we have only the Bible, the word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). God asks for worship on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:1-2). We try with all our hearts to worship God as the early New Testament church was instructed in scripture. We strive to be the church as found in the New Testament (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 1:22-23, 4:4; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13). We seek God’s truth without regard to what man wants or tradition dictates.
Please take a few minutes to read through this article and discover whom we are. And, as always, we invite you to worship with us at the Northwest Lincoln church of Christ located at 3110 North First Street in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Faithful to God
Fruitful for God
Forever with God
First of all, a BIG thank you to those who jumped in and helped with the sorting of our last minute delivery yesterday. Second, I want to apologize to the two people who called me during this hectic period. I must have sounded crazed and confused - if not a bit rude. I’m just not as good at multi-tasking as I used to be and I appreciate your understanding.
Now, on to the update…
As you can see, we persist in increasing the number of individuals coming each week and continue to see new faces. I think the fluxing of total number served may be related to the poor weather conditions of weeks 2 and 4, as those with larger families and physical restrictions may not have been able to attend. However, the number of signatures may be a better reflection of the growth and our effect on the community than the total number served. Total number served could be misleading since we don't personally know these people and the number signed in is more accurate given that we actually see them as they sign the log sheet. In any case, we expect these numbers to continue to increase as the word gets out and the weather gets better.
Also, we are averaging 19 workers throughout the day, putting in a total of 60 hours. VERY IMPRESSIVE!
Your action is requested . . .
It is so encouraging to see this enthusiasm and the effort everyone is putting into making this outreach effective. May God continue to bless this endeavor.
