The Church in Syria: Lessons of Faith and Faithfulness

Join us in the Foundations Series at 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 4. Elder Marilyn Borst, who is with The Outreach Foundation (an NAPC mission partner), recaps her recent journey to Syria (her 17th) where she spent Holy Week in far northeast Syria. Come hear how God is moving in the lives of people and his church in Syria.

Men's Sing: Summer Edition

Back by popular demand, NAPC Music & The Arts Ministry is happy to announce a second Men’s Sing Sunday: Summer Edition!

If you've ever wanted to sing in the Chancel Choir but felt like you couldn't commit long-term, this is a chance to sing with us on a Sunday morning with only two 1-hour Wednesday rehearsals and two Sunday worship services (on the same Sunday). No matter your musical background, you are welcome to join us! Come enjoy making new friends and singing great music together.

Rehearsals: Wednesdays, May 24 and 31 from 7-8 p.m. (If you cannot join us on both, please feel free to drop in on just one, we still would love to have you join us!)

Young Adult Summer Retreat

What is the best way to connect with other young adults (ages 20-45) at North Avenue? Our Young Adult Retreat! Whether you are new or old to NAPC, we want YOU to join us for a weekend full of fun, connection, and storytelling. This year we will be journeying to Americus, GA, where we will learn about Koinonia Farm, an interracial, intentional community founded in the 1940s during the Jim Crow South. From this example of New Testament living, we will explore the theme of reconciliation within our lives. The retreat costs only $40 for the weekend, July 14-16.  As a bonus, we might be able to watch President Jimmy Carter teach his renowned Sunday School class. Register for the retreat here.

First Sundays Coffee

As a church family we have been missing the opportunity to share a meal together on Sundays. Come enjoy a bite to eat and a cup of coffee in the Welcome Center on the first Sundays of the month anytime between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. This is a great place to connect with others at NAPC or to ask questions about the church—or just enjoy some extended fellowship time outside of worship.
