Our Not So Small Group
Our small group met in our home, and we started reading and discussing a new book. It’s the one John gave me for my birthday. In “What did Jesus ask?”, 70 spiritual leaders offer thoughts on some of the questions that Jesus asks in the bible.

Thank You Post 53
Service Day at NPC was a new way of worshipping and giving glory to God on the Sabbath. Around 200 people, including many families with young children, enjoyed being together and doing projects to show their appreciation for others in the community. You can see them live, at work, on Service Day 4-29-18.

Mark D. Roberts
We attended the lectures of Mark Roberts at Noroton Presbyterian Church in Darien, CT one weekend. He and two editors at Zonderman compiled “The Story of God Bible Commentary on Ephesians”. His talks were on Ephesians 4:1- 6 - how we are all called to “walk in the good works that God has prepared for us”. And how we are to humbly, gently and patiently bear with each other in love.
