Caring Friends and Neighbors
The Nederland Community Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA). We appreciate diversity, and we treasure openness to new ideas of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ in our time. For us, a fellowship is alive where people are free to live in genuine openness to God and to each other.
Following the example of our Lord, as his disciples, we strive to be an inclusive congregation. We celebrate our common faith and welcome people of every race, color, gender, age and life situation. Our emphasis is on caring, accepting and tolerance, not judging. We speak of our church as a ‘family’ and believe that before anything else that may seek to divide us, we are brothers and sisters in Christ.

Bring the whole thing to worship on Christmas Day, or to church sometime that week, and we will deliver the whole collection to the Food Pantry! Christmas Eve is always one of the most holy times of the year. Again this year we will have a 5 pm Family-Friendly Worship Service, and we are also bringing back the children’s pageant! Then, as is becoming tradition, there will be a short time for the Christmas Cookie Pot-Luck. And finally, at 6:30 we will close our evening with the Contemplative Candlelight Worship Service, with some special … [more...]

Nederland Community Presbyterian Church wants to share with our neighbors a few ways we can help with the fire recovery and with reducing the risk for the future. First, we have donated $5000 to the Peak to Peak Healthy Communities Project, to help meet any needs that come up for folks significantly affected the fire.
