We want to provide information to assist you in your search for a true spiritual relationship with God. We hope that you are as interested in studying about Jesus and his life, and knowing him, as we are. We also want to tell you about our local congregation and describe what we do as an assembly of Christians. We try to demonstrate our desire to look to God's Word, the Bible, to guide us in how we should do His will by striving to copy the church Christ established in the first century (Acts 20:28).

Please come and visit us in worship or study.

Remote Assemblies


The elders have talked about our "present distress" during this virus pandemic.  We have decided, due to what we are hearing regarding the extreme contagiousness of this virus strain, to cancel our in person assemblies until further notice. 

Bible classes and sermons will be streamed live and recorded for access later.  Live audio-only streaming is available at https://media.nwcocmn.org (note: this only works during our actual services. You may get an error otherwise).  We are also streaming Facebook live video at https://www.facebook.com/nwcocmn/.  Please contact Jay Wineinger (612-568-4339) with any issues.

We thank you for your great love you have for one another, and for the support you have given to us as your shepherds.

God bless and keep you, make His face to shine upon you, and give you peace.

Message from the Elders on COVID-19

Updated 2020-03-27
We appreciate the love in this congregation for our Lord and each other. It is clear we are presently confronted with the COVID-19 virus threat and its potential for impacting this congregation and our many members with diverse circumstances. As elders we are none of us medical or crisis management experts, but we do care deeply for the physical health and well-being of everyone here. As always each member needs to make their own independent decision about what is best for themselves and their families. With that said, until conditions around the spread of the virus are relaxed, here are the points of guidance from our perspective to this concern.
  1. We highly encourage the live streaming of our Bible study times and preaching.
  2. If you need assistance with the online technology please reach out to Jay Wineinger (612-568-4339), Bob Johanson (763-258-9159), or any of the elders or deacons.
Again, we want to emphasize that at this time while we are unable to assemble together, we encourage you to join us remotely via https://media.nwcocmn.org or https://www.facebook.com/nwcocmn/.  We all hope the duration of this is short lived, and we can all be together again with the freedom to support and encourage in all the ways that we normally do.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will update you as things change. Please reach out to any of the elders or deacons if you have questions or concerns.
In Brotherly Love, 
The Elders
