Four Photos and Stories About What We Did in October

It has been a wonderful fall. There are still some green leaves - but most have turned to brilliant orange and gold, and some to deep burgundy.


Amand Craig
Amanda Craig was the speaker at the half day retreat for women of Noroton Presbyterian Church and their guests. It was held at First Presbyterian Church in Greenwich. Amanda’s topic was “Belonging” and she spoke of everyone’s deep desire to belong - to feel loved by family and friends - and especially to know that each and every one of us is dearly loved by God.

PEP, which stands for People Encouraging People, started off this new season in the Mission Room at NPC with a wonderful lunch. Old friends, some who have known each other since their school days, caught up on what’s been happening in their lives.

Service Day
NPC’s Service Day was a huge success with 200 adults and children participating. There were 15 projects - some took place inside the church and others were outside - at Open Door Shelter in Norwalk, at Waveny Care Center in New Canaan and in neighbors’ homes and yards.
