We will be holding outdoor worship services beginning Sunday, July 12th on the Great Lawn (weather permitting). We will continue to stream on YouTube, so you can choose whether to attend in person or virtually. Either way, join us at 9:55 for the Prelude! In case of bad weather, service will be live streamed only. The Session has put together a set of policies for in-person worship: https://nhpchurch.org/COVID-19restart2020.pdf. Masks and social distancing will be required. You will also be asked some screening questions regarding covid-19. There will be no singing and no spoken responses. Please read the full set of policies before you attend. Join us in worshiping the Lord, either in-person or virtually!
