NWMC is counting down the days to the 2014 New Wilmington Mission Conference--July 19-26th. This year's theme verse is Micah 6:8, " ...what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
For the second year, the SHYG group is traveling to Duncannon, PA where the Appalachian Trail runs through. The project this year is to help renovate the historic Doyle Hotel, a hiker hostel located in the center of Duncannon. While there they will clean, repaint, repair and retile up to six rooms. Most churches in the town are unable to help with housing hikers, so this is a way they can help out. Each room renovated is financially supported by one of the local churches. Our own mission team will donate the funds for at least one room as well. The week also includes hiking approximately 30 miles on the trail!
Follow their week through our photo gallery.
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.
June 15th, and continuing through the summer, our worship service and broadcast will begin at 9:30 am. There is one exception: Sunday, July 20, New Wilmington Mission Conference Sunday, when the service and live broadcast will be at 11 am.
The Saturday Morning Bible Study will be studying the book of James. All women of the church and community are invited. We will be meeting the 3rd and 4th Saturdays of May, July, and August; no meetings in June. The time is 8:30 am. The location is downstairs in the Lillian Martin room.
This summer our congregation is invited to help host a picnic every Tuesday and Thursday from June 10 to August 21 at Heritage Hills in Pulaski by providing hearty, healthy meals for school age kids.
Working together with the Pittsburgh Food Bank and LCAAP, we are putting together teams of folks who will pick up prepared meals from the Ben Franklin School in New Castle and deliver them to kids in need by hosting a picnic at the pavilion there. We are hoping YOU will volunteer for a single day or a series of days to provide solid nutrition to our local kids. Volunteers would be needed approximately from 11 am to 1 pm on the day they help out.
NWPC Preschool is now enrolling for the 2014-2015 school year!
