Church Picnic – Sunday, September 23 @ 5PM

Annual Church Picnic

Sunday, Sept. 23, beginning at 5PM

 
We’ll eat at tables under the big tent in the backyard of the church by the shade trees. There will be games for kids of all ages, great food and live bluegrass music provided by the talented Moore family, featuring Axn Jxn! The church will provide hamburgers and hot dogs cooked on the grill, beverages, buns and condiments. All who attend are asked to bring their favorite picnic dish to share. This is a great opportunity to invite extended family, former members, or someone looking for a church family, and let them experience what a
fun group your NEPC family is! In case of inclement weather, picnic will be moved inside to the fellowship hall. Please contact the church office or see the  sign up sheet outside the sanctuary to reserve your seat(s).

Like a tattoo, our lives show we’ve been marked.

 
People get tattoos for a lot of different reasons, but in almost every case, it’s because they want to make a statement. To physically and permanently show others something about themselves, or what they believe, or what’s important to them. And the thing about tattoos? They’re pretty much forever. You can’t easily get rid of that statement, that mark.
 
The Christian life is a lot like a tattoo. When we place our trust in Christ, our lives are changed, transformed, marked. Permanently. And how we live our lives, the decisions and choices we make every day, speak as loudly as a tattoo. What does your life tell others?
Each Sunday @ Youth Group we’ll be exploring just what a life marked for Christ looks like. What are the characteristics and attributes that show a life that lives and shows “trust in Christ, expressed in love” (Gal. 5:6)? How do we live this out in our daily lives?
 
Join us each week as we explore those questions and more!

Pastor’s Corner – August 2018

One Year Ago…

Do you remember a year ago?  You were wondering just what this new pastor you’d called would be like; and we were wondering about this new congregation and community we’d been called to serve.  There were so many unknowns and questions for us all.  But just behind all of that uncertainty was our God, who holds all of us in His hands, who knows the future as certainly as the past.  God has shown all of us that He knows exactly what He is doing.  Without a doubt, it has been a wonderful year.  One of the things I enjoyed most at the EPC General Assembly in June was being able to brag about the wonderful congregation I’ve been blessed to serve as pastor for the past year.  As I told several friends and mentors, I couldn’t imagine a better congregation to serve for my first solo pastorate. It’s hard to find the words to express how thankful I am for how you’ve welcomed and loved my family over the past year.   The picture to the right was taken the day we moved into our new home.

…But There’s More To Come!

As great as the past year has been, I can’t wait to see all that God has in store for the year(s!) to come.  The various ministries of the church and the Session are hard at work prayerfully discerning how God is already at work in and around us, and how He is inviting us to join Him in that work.  Plans are being laid for some pretty cool things in Christian Education, Missions & Outreach, Worship and Fellowship over the months to come.  The best part is that you get a sneak peek at what’s ahead on Rally Day, coming up Sunday, August 26.  How is God inviting you to continue growing as a disciple of Jesus Christ and what opportunities is He providing for you to serve as Jesus’ hands and feet?  Plan to join us for Rally Day and you just might find out.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Blessings,

Rev. David Garrison
