These are exciting times in the life of NPC, especially with the launching of our new and improved website and the expansion of our various ministries. The entire support services staff are honored to be part of this excitement, and to be able to provide the necessary support to conduct the business affairs of this church. We consider it an ideal opportunity to be able to share our skills, God-given talents and professional experience for ministry in God's church.
At NPC our many Caring Ministries leaders are the arms and feet, the hands and heart of Jesus! The Board of Deacons, 30 members strong, strive to welcome and greet, to transport and provide, to host and serve. Our Parish Visitors Team extend themselves with consistent prayerful care for our infirmed and home bound. Our six Stephen Leaders and 20 active Stephen Ministers minister on the frontlines at NPC and beyond, by offering their distinctively Christian and confidential care to others! Our many and gifted caring leaders, with all humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another in love, are there for you, with Christ, for Christ, and because of Christ!
The role of the Congregational Life Team at NPC is to help all members find a place(s) in the life of our church community, to further deepen and enrich your own relationship with God, and to find activities that appeal to you and from which you might be blessed. We help to integrate new members into the life of the church, and to lead existing members into greater fellowship, participation, and service. As such, we work cooperatively with many of the other ministries of the church.
As followers of Christ, we are all called to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others who don't know him. We all have a story to tell about how Christ has made a difference in our life. We encourage you to share Christ's love in your family, neighborhood and workplace.
Noroton Presbyterian Church offers three New Members classes every year. They provide an opportunity for you to find out more about our church, its mission and its ministries. We would love for you to join one of our classes to find out what membership at NPC is all about.
God is calling us to be a congregation that heeds both the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. In the Great Commission, Jesus challenges us to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and reaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20) The church's primary mission is to make known the mercy, grace and love of God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The Fine Arts Ministry of NPC seeks to minister to and on behalf of the congregation, while seeking excellence in all aspects of preparation and performance. We seek to provide a repertoire that encompasses all styles of music and drama as we encourage participation by the greatest number of people. In doing this, it is our goal to meet both the artistic and the spiritual needs of the participants.
