WELCOME GUESTS! If you are a guest today, know that we are happy to meet you, and hope you will be blessed by the worship service and our fellowship time afterwards. It is our goal to show you the love and the hospitality of Christ. Welcome! Please note that childcare volunteers are provided in our wonderful nursery for all of those who are under 4 years old!
OUR FLOWERS this morning are in thanks to all the LPGA volunteers who stuck it out in sometimes unpleasant weather conditions to send our kids to camp.
WE ARE GOING TO CAMP! LEAVES ARE BREAKING OUT EVERYWHERE FOR A TOTAL OF $5283.00. Free Play Group Benefit Concert brought in $1050 and the LPGA event parking added $3,180 to the donation tree last week. GREAT JOB!
Thank you to everyone who volunteered to staff the church parking lot during the LPGA event! You are so appreciated!
NKPC Fishing Contest Update:
Chet is currently in the lead with a huge pumpkinseed entry.
What can you enter to compete? Remember to take a photo of your fish next to a tape measure and send the photo to Pastor Karen to enter the contest.
June 30th: Worship at Camp Greenwood. On June 30th, worship will not be held in our sanctuary, but in the Pavilion at Camp Greenwood. Worship starts at 10:30 a.m. that day, so if you forget and come to NKPC you will still have time to make it to worship at Camp on time!
Prayer Shawls: We are currently running low on prayer shawls! If you would be willing to knit or crochet one for NKPC to give away, please take some skeins of yarn, a pattern and even borrow some needles if you need them. Let's continue to make these beautiful ministry gifts!
