All Are Welcome

Sunday Services

Worship services at Nacoochee are special. From the gathering peal of the old-fashioned steeple bell to the benediction, "Go out into the world in peace. Have courage. Honor all people, return no one evil for evil", the services lighten the heart and enlighten the mind and spirit.

Pastor Bob Prim is a masterful storyteller and thoughtful teacher. Resounding with insight and humor, his sermons are eagerly anticipated each week. The music is carefully selected to complement the scripture readings as is the sometimes surprising (kids say the darndest things), but always delightful "Word with the Children".

Service times September through May are 9am and 11am. June through August we change to 8am and 10am. Nursery is provided for both services with the "Word with the Children", Sunday School, and choir during the later service. Dress is from very casual to "Sunday Best", as you wish. Also as a reminder, in our commitment to the non‐violent teachings of Jesus, NPC has elected to opt out of the Georgia State Safe Carry Protection Act.

Taizé

Come and find your own quiet center during time of contemplative prayer, music and silence surrounded by the glow of candles and the approaching twilight. For those who have never attended a service in this style, it is patterned after the Taizé community in France. This monastic order of non-denominational brothers attracts over 10,000 pilgrims per year. The Taizé community practices a strong devotion to peace and justice through prayer and meditation. To learn more, visit www.taize.fr/en. Services are led by NPC Music Director, Barbara Luhn, who is often joined by musicians from the community to provide the meditative music for this reverent time of worship. Come as you are. All are welcome.

Taizé service times are the first Sunday of the month from October through February at 6pm.
