    Neighborhood Parishes

    Neighborhood Parishes

    Neighborhood Parishes offer a way for NDPC members and friends to maintain a close-knit community within our larger growing church environment. Parishes are groups of 5-8 families (15-20 people), organized by the geographic proximity of members’ homes. If you are interested in connecting with a parish in your community, contact our co-pastors.

    Parishes meet quarterly
