In an attempt to provide a sacred time and space for healing and feelings of loss, the volunteer Parish Nurses, along with our pastoral staff, are planning the annual
BLUE CHRISTMAS SERVICE in the LIGO ROOM, SUNDAY NOVEMBER 30th, at 6:00 pm.
This is a simple candlelit service for those who need to pause, acknowledge their own loss, grief or sadness, and be surrounded by prayer, song and scripture. Please watch for bulletin reminders, mark this time on your calendar, invite any friends in the larger community if you wish, and join us at this service.
Saturday, December 6th from 10am - 1pm

What is Financial Peace University? We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!
For more details, please contact Tim & Pam Sherwood, Denise Gerber or Jill Mohr.

What do COFFEE and DIAPERS have in common? NWPC gives them both to those in need. In New Castle, Patches Place, a behavioral health center, provides for its members, 20 to 30 cups of coffee (w/muffin or similar breakfast item) each day. Do the math, 900 cups of month! Wow! Patches also serves a hot lunch every day. In addition to coffee, they need coffee creamer, sugar packets and canned goods.
Catholic Charities distributes diapers and baby hygiene products. Newborn to size 5 diapers are needed. Newborn and sizes 4 & 5 go the fastest. Baby sized bathtubs are much needed.
Please donate to these two organizations. Bring any of the above items to the church on any day and put them in the room next to the secretary's office (room 206). Deliveries will take place weekly!
This is an ongoing outreach program of the NWPC Deacons. That is, no end date. Thank you for helping those in need.
NWPC Preschool is now enrolling for the 2014-2015 school year!
12 members, 12 months of commitment, 12 thousand mission support dollars, in a partnership with Cray Youth and Family Services, a non-profit agency in New Castle that provides after-school programs, Big Brothers - Big Sisters and other opportunities to help students of elementary and middle school age.
