Finance – Staffing – Facilities


Kathy Barnes

About Our Resources Team

We work on the budget, stewardship campaigns, and property management to ensure that we can provide for both immediate and long term needs. We also manage the church staffing needs.

From March 2020 until August 2021, our building was empty and our finances took a substantial hit due to the closing of our nursery school and after school programs. We are thrilled that in-person worship has returned, and that we now have a Montessori school and after school programs operating in our building! In addition to generating income for NPC, these programs will help us to reach out and make connections in the wider community.

Our Resources team was very active during the COVID closure, repairing and upgrading our church home and reducing expenses. These included refinishing the vestry floor, repairing the fire alarms, the stained glass window frames, and the outdoor signs, painting throughout the building, as well as upgrading the systems needed to live-stream our services and making our building safe to reopen. We continue to work on repairs to our roof, plumbing and heating systems.

Newton Presbyterian Church is currently seeking a new church organist. We are looking for a dynamic musician with a vision to develop a thriving music ministry.

We would like to thank our congregation for their continued support and generosity through the COVID pandemic and beyond, and are very happy to once again be seeing you in person.
