NAPC leadership and members reach out and nurture other church members. We love to make visits to our church family members, provide meals after the loss of a loved one, visit families with new babies, provide communion to those who are homebound, and visit members who are in the hospital. These are just a few of the ways we can be God’s hands and feet to walk with others through whatever life’s trials bring. We don’t want anyone to be alone or sad.
How can I receive congregational care?
If you are in need of assistance or know of another member who could use care, contact Rev. Frank Eldridge.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to pray continually, and as one way of doing so, every Wednesday night at 6:15 p.m., people meet in the Donna Wilgus Library for intercessory prayer for others or for their own prayer needs. All are welcome to come and are invited to participate orally by prayer, by silent prayer, or by physical presence. A weekly prayer list is provided to guide the prayer needs. Through staff, anyone can request that a prayer concern be included on the weekly list. Elders, staff, members, and non-members all come and pray over our church and church family. On the first Wednesday of each month Communion is celebrated. Just come!
We celebrate a Healing Service the third Sunday of each month at 12:15 p.m. in the Prayer Room adjacent to the left front side of the Sanctuary. The service immediately follows the 11 a.m. worship service and is for those who need physical, spiritual, or emotional healing in their lives or who act as intercessors for others in need of healing. Matters prayed for in this service are confidential. Anyone is welcome to come, to pray, or to be prayed for during the service. The service begins with Communion and prayer, and then is followed by prayer for specific individual needs, for healing by all who are moved to offer prayer. The Service lasts as long as there is a need for prayer. Staff, officers, members, and non-members attend. Just come.
