Dinner for 8 is a wonderful opportunity to connect with others to share a meal and enhance fellowship and community. Groups plan their own meals and get together at least 4 times over a period of 4 months, sharing meals at participants’ homes, or at local restaurants. The emphasis is on fun and fellowship so you don't have to be a gourmet cook to participate. In addition to having dinner together, read a Proverb, spend some time playing games, or just hanging out. Also take some pictures and share them with others in our congregation to spur fellowship.
It’s time to start planning the 2022 Advent pageant!
Are you being called to serve? This year the NRPC 2022 Advent pageant will look similar to last year as it will be outdoors. It will also be expanded with new activities for participants and guests to participate in.
What do we need from you? We need participants of all ages and volunteers to be characters in the story, guides, to help set up the existing sets, and to help take down the sets.
If any of this resonates with you, please fill out the Google form here. Remember, there is no age limit to who may participate. All are encouraged to help us as we grow to share more and retell the amazing story of the birth of Christ.
Please prayerfully discern if you are able to serve. If you are willing, please fill out the Google form or contact
Erin Robbins or Sarah Bales by October 16th.
