PARENTS

At NPC, we believe that parents are a primary influence on their children’s spiritual growth. We want to equip parents and caregivers with tools for faith formation at home, as well as with opportunities for fellowship with other families at church.

Weekly Parent Gathering

Sundays 9:55-10:45
Jones Hall in the Education Building

Join parents of similar ages and stages for fellowship for a reflection on the Scripture teaching from the Youth and Children's Sunday school program, and to support one another in raising your children to know Jesus Christ as Lord. This is a great opportunity to connect with fellow parents and enjoy a cup of coffee accompanied by meaningful conversation about the Bible lesson your kids are engaging each week.
