This past summer was filled with opportunities to grow closer to each other, to serve where the Lord has sovereignly placed us, and to gaze more deeply into the love our God gives us in Christ our Savior. We hope you will enjoy this slideshow that moves through several events that we enjoyed this summer: our trip to the Yakama Indian Reservation in White Swan, Washington, Reformed Youth Ministries middle school camp in Laguna Beach, Florida, and Sweat Fest – an in-town mission trip that focuses on Jesus’ promise to make “all things new.”
Hunter Stevenson (AKA “the Great Cornholio”) along with partner Andrew Wohlrabe battled fierce conditions and ferocious competition to to take in the sweet smell of victory at the men’s fellowship on Saturday night. Pulled pork and beans were consumed in large quantities as those not playing warmed themselves by the multiple fire pits full of store bought firewood. Once the teams were selected and the tournament ensued, it became clear that mother nature would separate the men from the boys. Frigid conditions tested the nerve and will power of many a’ tosser of corn. In the end there could only be one champion…. or in this case 3. Elliot Robinson, Andrew Wohlrabe and Hunter “nuthin’ but daggers” Stevenson combined to form an insurmountable three headed dragon of adult beanbag greatness.
The church enjoyed a wonderful time worshiping where the new sanctuary and other amenities will be! It was a great time to experience the vision. It was inspiring to see our people gathered in the new foyer and worshiping together. A special thanks to all the volunteers that made October 25th a wonderful experience. We couldn’t have done it without you! Please see the attached pictures for a glimpse of what it was like.
Thank you NMPC family for helping make the donation drive for the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia a success! The goods you donated will help further the goal and purpose of the Rescue Mission.
The purpose of Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia is to help those in need overcome the negative circumstances of their past and lead them to physical, mental and spiritual healing through Jesus Christ. Our goal is to guide the lost towards a life of eternal victory in Christ and to guide them to become productive citizens in their home, church and community by building their lives on the foundation of faith.
We were so thankful to hear a report from Kay Burklind and Opal Hargrove on MTW’s work to help victims of human trafficking and how we can join in their efforts to bring redemption in this place of great brokenness and need.
It was also a blessing to Cynthia Smith from Out of Darkness Ministries there to inform us about the work being done in Middle Georgia to rescue victims of Sex trade.

Sweat Fest was awesome! Our youth exercised their dominion over creation for one sultry week in July. They knocked back weeds painted, served, visited the elderly in a nursing home and grew together as a group.
Praise the Lord for the work he has done in our Youth and in our community through them!
Here are a few snapshots:
