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.

Not only did Jesus flip a royal procession from power to humility, challenge the religious authorities’ thinking about everything, and turn over the tables on the ancient economic system, he calls us to resist the damaging assumptions soaked into our society and to lift our lives toward a counter-cultural holiness. Special Offering – Each year on Palm Sunday NCPC receives a special offering to help hungry and thirsty people around the world. The children have their fish-shaped coin banks, and adults will have a special envelope in the bulletin. Any collection up to $500 will be matched, and used to provide meals for our Rise Against Hunger (formerly called Stop Hunger Now) packing session this fall! Maundy … [more...]
