NPC has a weekly attendance of about 700 and we strive for each person to be known and feel at home here. Since Covid-19, our viewership has grown to about 1,200 per week.


Communion is served in worship on the first Sunday of every month.

For online worship, you are invited to share in the celebration of communion from your home. Here are the guidelines for preparation and serving of communion.


The Sanctuary, Chapel, and most classrooms are accessible to persons with disabilities. Large print bulletins and hymnals, and devices to assist the hearing impaired are available for use in the Sanctuary.

What do you have for my kids?

Children's Time & Children's Chapel

We love kids in worship! We provide blue worship bags for children to pick up and return just outside the Sanctuary. During worship, children are invited to the front for a children's message. After that, children in grades K-5 may exit to the Chapel for a special time of learning together during the sermon. Teachers will return children to their parents in the Sanctuary before the end of the service.
