The Summer Series finishes this Sunday, August 31st at 9:30am with a "musical" Worship Service. Also, we celebrate Cindy Dobish's dedication and amazing talents to our music program in the last 25 years! (Thank you notes are available in the Ligo Room.)
As you know, Jason Santos has accepted a call at the Presbyterian Mission Agency in Louisville, KY. We would like to celebrate and thank him for his time at NWPC with the following:
This Sunday, Aug 24th, we will celebrate with the Santos family during the Family Church Picnic with a cake. There will be a basket for cards and well-wishes on the cake table.
The following Sunday, Aug 31st, Kid's Club, JHYG and SHYG and their families are invited to the Labyrinth for a time of spiritual journeying through the Labyrinth. Then we will join in for snacks by the bonfire.
If you have any questions, please see Kim Romig or Jill Wilson.
Coming this Fall!
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.
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!
