Attention all nature lovers! On Saturday, February 26th at 1:30pm, the Fellowship Committee will present a video by conservation expert Doug Tallamy, entitled “Nature’s Best Hope.” Tallamy’s explanation of the specialized relationships among plants, insects, and animals are fascinating stories told with a good dose of humor. He encourages everyone to make a commitment to conservation, starting in your own backyard, and presents easy ways to do it.
Meet us in Murchison Hall on Saturday, February 26 at 1:30pm for the presentation. After the video, we will have time for some discussion. Snacks will also be provided. See you then!
“Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat.“
The “Souper Bowl of Caring” is a national program to tackle hunger that is commemorated in many churches on Super Bowl Sunday. This year, it’s Sunday, February 13th. NHPC is participating this year, and we ask that you bring one can of soup to church on February 13th. All donations will go to the People to People Food Pantry, in Rockland County. We also accept other donations of non-perishable food items as part of our ongoing food drive for People to People’s Food Pantry. Please give as often as you can!
If you haven’t completed our Congregational Assessment Tool (CAT Survey), DO IT TODAY! It takes only 30 minutes to complete and this window of opportunity to make your voice heard closes at midnight on Tuesday, February 15th.
Why is this important? The more responses we receive, the better able we’ll be to plan for the future of our church–the future that you want to see. Your thoughts and opinions can’t be counted unless we hear from you.
Complete the survey by using the link that Jane Sebok recently sent to you. If you need a paper copy, please stop by the church office and we’ll provide one for you. Contact Jane Sebok if you have any questions.
Make your voice heard…Complete your CAT Survey today.
In conjunction with Holy Cow Consulting, our congregation has developed a Congregational Assessment Tool (CAT Survey) to identify the strengths of our church, and highlight priority areas for the future.
The CAT Survey is now available. You should have recently received a web link from Jane Craig Sebok, to complete the assessment. Paper copies will also be available at the church, or will be mailed to you if we don’t have your email address.
Please take 30 minutes to complete the survey. It’s your opportunity to share your experiences and priorities for our congregation.
On Sunday, March 6th, a representative from Holy Cow Consulting will join us in person to interpret the survey results for us. A special luncheon will also be available on that date. Be sure to join us in person or virtually.
