September 21 We will begin a four-week study open to ALL AGES! Focusing on God's great story as told in the Bible, we will create a Wall of Fame, representing highlights and lowlights of God's working and man's response through all 66 books of the Bible.
September 21 We will begin by reading and discussing Resisting Structural Evil, Love as Ecological-Economic Vocation, by Cynthia D. Moe-Lobeda. This book examines the forces engaged in maintaining the contradiction involved in our being “profoundly caring human beings” caught up in systems and patterns – obvious but also covert - that oppressively exploit vast numbers of human beings and degrade the planet itself. In addition to identifying and describing the sources of our sense of powerlessness in the face of this, the author explores hopeful patterns of response grounded in the “conviction that all of creation is embraced by a Love that will not cease in all the endless ages to come.’” Her approach involves accessing all of our wisdom traditions as well as the academic disciplines developed in the course of the last two hundred years in the West. SALT meets in the southeast alcove. Come and join the conversation.
THE HALLELUJAH GIRLS!
Come join us this Saturday, Sept 20th for coffee, fruit salad, scripture and conversation. We welcome Margaret Courtwright as we consider the "Lilies of the Field".
On Saturday and Sunday, September 20th and 21st, please welcome Mr. William Mwizerwa, originally from Rwanda, and Mr. Randy Hartley as they share their life stories with us. Both currently from Nashville, Williams is the founder of Legacy Mission Village and Randy is the chairman of the board.
Join us to greet them on Saturday night at 7:30 and stay to watch their movie at 8:00, which documents the hardships Randy's daughter faced and William and his family's devastating experiences in the Rwandan genocide and how their stories interconnect and in the end, show God's grace. This documentary deals with mature topics and is therefore recommended for Adults and Junior/Senior High Youth.
On Sunday, Randy and William will kick off our Mission Module for Sunday School at 9:15 and will bring us the morning message in Worship at 10:30 am. After that, stay for a church pot luck to celebrate their visit.

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.
