NOW Church is located in beautiful Ocala, Florida, the Horse Capital of the World. We have 24 acres of land on one of the busiest stretches of roads in the state of Florida-where 441, 27 and 301 combine for a short distance. We are only a short drive from either coast, the University of Florida, The Villages, and all of the theme parks in Central Florida!

NOW Church has two worship experiences: on Sunday mornings at 9am and 11am, with the exception of certain holiday weekends-so be sure to check our online events calendar or follow us on social media for the latest updates. Our midweek service is on Wednesday nights at 7pm. It is a more intimate, Bible study format. Also, one Wednesday a month we have church-wide prayer. NOW Kids, our children’s ministry, takes place during both Sunday morning services as well as Wednesdays. In addition, NOW Youth, our combined middle and high school ministry, meets on Wednesday nights. We transform “the Hub” (our fellowship hall) into an inviting coffee-house-feel with a warm and inviting atmosphere where your teens will connect with God, and each other.

If you’re joining us for the first time, we have reserved parking for you, and our parking team will help direct you. As you enter the building, you will be greeted by our friendly volunteers, whom we refer to as the NOW Crew, who are ready and available to serve you and help with any questions you may have. Inside you will be guided through a secure check-in process for your children, and our volunteers will help you find the correct classroom for their age.

When you enter the doors of our auditorium, you will notice a creative and technologically-advanced environment. Our worship experience is modern, it’s multi-generational, and it’s multi-cultural. We believe praise and worship is not the opening act of the main event. It’s an essential part in helping prepare the atmosphere for people to connect with God in a real and powerful way right where they are.

We believe the Bible is God’s Word; always relevant and timely-no matter where you are on life’s journey. Pastors Richard and Gail, and our entire pastoral team always keep it fresh and tuned-in to whatever God is saying NOW. To get a true sense of who we are, why not give us a try for 3 consecutive weeks, to see if NOW Church is where you belong. We call it our “3 Week Challenge,” and when you’re ready to get involved, our Next Steps class is just for you.

Whether you’re new to the faith or a seasoned believer, NOW Church will always encourage you, inspire you to move forward, and help you find your purpose!
