Our young people are involved in programs and activities that play an important role in the ministry of the church. During the summer, while elementary and middle school students attend Vacation Bible School, senior high students have the opportunity to participate in various missions. For example: the Appalachia Service Project - asphome.org or Cross Missions myersparkpres.org/cross)
One of our favorite annual projects is “Souper Bowl of Caring” (souperbowl.org) held on Super Bowl Sunday each year. The adults offer a yummy lunch consisting of homemade breads and, you guessed it, soups, and the NPC youth collect funds and non-perishable food items to support the White County Food Pantry, a countywide food bank.List of Programs
