NPC leaders have been considering when and how we will return to corporate worship and facility use. The governor’s announcement gives us concrete information to consider as we discern our next steps.
What does this mean for NPC?
There are no immediate changes at this time. For this coming Sunday, we will live stream on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/neelsville) as we have been doing for the previous nine weeks.
We wanted you to know that we are aware of Gov. Hogan’s remarks. We will be waiting to hear what further direction Montgomery County provides at today's press conference. We will be continuing our discussions with elders, deacons, trustees, and staff to make a wise decision for our NPC members and guests. Then, we will communicate as soon as we have more concrete steps beyond this. Please, pray for us.
We want to hear from you!
Your thoughts, concerns and needs related to reopening are very important to us. Would you please fill out our short survey so that we can take your input into consideration as we determine the best way to safely meet in person again?
Be encouraged by this scripture as we are discerning when and how to meet again.
“But since we were torn away from you, brothers, for a short time, in person not in heart, we endeavored the more eagerly and with great desire to see you face to face.” (1 Thes. 2:17)
“Though I have much to write to you, I would rather not use paper and ink. Instead I hope to come to you and talk face to face, so that our joy may be complete.” (2 John 12)
