The Newmarket Community Church
Excellence in Community Service Scholarship

NCC is committed to serving God’s people with unconditional love because service to others is a significant way to live out our faith in community.  We foster a caring atmosphere of dignity, love, support, and respect for all and strive to bring that to everyone.  We look for ways to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, care for the sick, and bring a sense of love and light to all. As such, through the Excellence in Community Service Scholarship, we recognize and celebrate Newmarket students who demonstrate a generous spirit, show compassion and kindness to all people, and reach out a helping hand to others with respect and courtesy.
