COVID 19 Update- At their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday evening, June 16th, the NPC Session decided to extend the present policy of remote Facebook worship through to the Labor Day holiday.
After Labor Day, the Session will revisit the policy and again entertain whether to return to in-person worship in our sanctuary.
The reasoning is simple; despite the county entering the green status as a community, in-person worship remains one of the venues often referred to as a “Super Spreader” environment. Even without choral or congregational hymn singing – and there could be none - sanctuary worship presents elevated risks to anyone attending, but especially to those individuals who are in the high-risk categories. A huge percentage of our congregation would qualify as “High Risk”.
It is with sadness, but with conviction that Session has decided to continue their policy of virtual worship. In this we join with nearly all of our Presbyterian sister churches who plan to reconsider the issue following Labor Day.
Northampton Presbyterian Church is a community church called to love God. Together we welcome all people to worship God, study His Word, and challenge each other to grow closer to Jesus. In friendship we pray together, celebrating the joys of life, and supporting one another during seasons of trial and sorrow. Working collectively, we care for our neighbors through local and world missions. We live by faith and work in love.
Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m., followed by Christian Life Groupsor ages 2 and up at 11:00 a.m.
While we encourage families to worship together when possible, we also offer child care during the worship service for children age 3 and under for those who are not ready to sit through the service.
Communion services are held the first Sunday of every month during worship.

WEDNESDAY EVENING FIRESIDE CHATS
Once upon a time during a difficult time in America, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt took a regular evening time to speak to all Americans by radio. The broadcasts came to be known as “Fireside Chats”.
The technology is different, but the issue of this day is eerily like the issue of FDR’s day. And our people, the family of faith, needs to be reminded every so often who they are, and Whose they are.
For the foreseeable future, NPC wants to offer our own version of Fireside Chats on every Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. You can find our “Chats” on our Facebook page by Clicking Here. A library of all recorded videos can be accessed by Clicking Here. Here is how they will work:
WHEN: Every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m, starting March 25th, 2020
HOW LONG: A half hour. Seldom longer.
WHAT: A time for prayer and a time for stories about a small church and its life. We hope it will be fun, entertaining, and with a message to live by.
WHAT ELSE: If you email Drew by 7:00 p.m. sharp on each Wednesday with your prayer concerns, we will pray together and share those concerns with God and each other.

WOMEN'S VIRTUAL SUMMER BIBLE STUDY : NEXT TIME - 7/23 at 7pm
In Bloodlines: Race, Cross and the Christian John Piper shares from his own experiences growing up in the segregated South thoughtfully exposing the unremitting problem of racism. Instead of turning finally to organizations, education, famous personalities, or government programs to address racial strife, Piper reveals the definitive source of hope--teaching how the good news about Jesus Christ actively undermines the sins that feed racial strife, and leads to a many-colored and many-cultured kingdom of God. He focuses on specific biblical passages and shows how biblical doctrine rejects racism entirely.
