50 Hours of Service

Your Guide to the 50 Hours of Service Challenge


Record Your Service


National Presbyterian Church is a church that serves—one another, our community and the world. This year we are celebrating 50 years at our current campus, and we celebrate a tradition of service.
We are challenging the entire NPC congregation to focus on service and celebrate what we learn from serving others. The goal is for everyone at National to respond to God’s call to serve and to log at least 50 hours of service. That may mean an hour a week, or perhaps part of a Saturday every month, or maybe a week-long mission trip.
It’s much less about the actual time as it is the call to see serving others as a part of a life following Christ. You can accept the challenge for yourself, your family, your Bible study or small group, or another group of friends.
How can you serve? It's easy! Helping at the church; lending a hand to a neighbor; volunteering with our mission partners or local nonprofits; praying for our mission partners, our nation, and our world; and any volunteering you already do...they all count towards your 50 hours!
Each time you serve, come back here and record your hours, and share your experiences. Over the course of the year, we’ll share some of the church’s stories and celebrate God’s work together. Let's see how many hours we can serve together this year!



50th Anniversary Celebration

Sunday, October 22, 2017

On October 14, 1967, the cornerstone of the present day National Presbyterian Church building here on Nebraska Ave was laid by President Eisenhower. This October, we will celebrate how the Holy Spirit boldly led us from a downtown Romanesque church, with no parking or room to grow, to a  brand-new Modernist sanctuary in a setting of over 12 acres, allowing us to expand our mission and further spread Christ's love to the broader community. That same Spirit is leading us into a future serving God in this city and around the world.
