Worship and Learning

Our key emphases are on worship and Christian education for all ages, comprising what PC(USA) refers to as the “Great Ends of the Church”

We seek to ensure that our worship services are well-organized and run smoothly, overseeing all manner of worship including the schedule of services, music programs, and Communion. We also provide for a range of education initiatives, including our children’s education program with Sunday School as its solid foundation, and also several adult education and new member classes.

We have a great foundation of worship and education at NPC, and we look forward to providing for our new families and children especially.


We first started as the Communications Committee, established in January 2021, and have grown to include the areas of Worship and Learning. We are responsible for the communications between NPC, the congregation, and the wider community through managing the church’s website, newsletter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and other social media. It is our ongoing mission to spread our ministry and build membership through our website and social media platforms virtually while also supporting the needs of our in-person worship and Christian education.

Our Platforms


In the Spring of 2020, we successfully launched a new Facebook page for NPC. We are active with news, photos, and event announcements, and we encourage all to continue to share, follow and like NPC Facebook as we continue to worship in virtual space as well as at the church. Everyone is welcome to view our services online from wherever you are, through the “watch now” button on our Facebook home page.


Our Instagram page showcases photos and videos of our beautiful church, performances, sermon clips and announcements.

We hope to reach a wide range of audiences with this platform.


Our Sunday services began streaming on the NPC YouTube channel when our church building was closed due to the pandemic. Today we continue posting our services live on Youtube. Services begin on Sundays at 10:15 am, and can be watched again later as well.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or wish to join us in our mission of community engagement!
