This Sunday (2/1): We Support Gay Marriage

Posted by David Lewicki in Education, This Week, Worship. | Leave a comment |

Getting married This Sunday (1/25), Rev. Lewicki preaches about why NDPC supports gay marriage. NDPC has been a welcoming community for LGBTQ people and their families for many years. We believe that Jesus wants it that way. But we have become so accustomed to being a gay-friendly church that we rarely talk about being a gay-friendly church. But this Sunday, as the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta prepares to vote on approving clergy to preside at same-sex weddings, we’ll discuss some of the questions surrounding sex, marriage, and Christian theology. Prepare to be surprised and to be challenged to re-think your own notions of the relationship between sex and the church.

Worship begins at 8:30 and 11am. Both services will celebrate Holy Communion this week.

Christian Education for all ages begins at 9:30am. We offer several thoughtful Adult education classes, as well as classes for youth and children of all ages. Our staffed nursery is open all morning for our babies.

First-time visitors are honored guests. All are welcome!

This Sunday (1/18): Come and See…

Posted by David Lewicki in Adult, Children, Education, This Week, Worship, Youth. | Leave a comment |

Through your eyes This Sunday, we celebrate the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in worship. The sermon at 11am will be reflections by members of our church on how they learned about their own racial identity and about race as a social construct. Their testimonies offer evidence of how each of us–and all of us–move from where we began toward fuller participation in the Beloved Community of God.

Worship services begin at 8:30 and 11am.
