We invite you to visit our newly updated website at www.ndpc.org. This digital refresh has been in the works for some time, led by NDPC’s Communications committee in partnership with New Tricks design company.
At the beginning of this project, our two primary goals were to highlight our incredible church community—to have its spirit shine through the digital page—and to help visitors and members get involved at the church through links to worship and the many other ways to engage in the NDPC community. We aimed for a website that would be beautiful, easy to navigate, streamlined, and informative. As one of our designers put it, we wanted a website with “a place for everything and everything in its place.”
One of those new “places” is our Be the Church page, which we hope you will take some time to explore. This page was created with the understanding that our church is not the building at 611 Medlock (though it is a fabulous building!), but the people who make up the congregation, acting together as the body of Christ in the world. As our website states, “Church is not a singular place; church is a people committed to loving God, loving each other, and loving the world.” On the Be the Church page you will find service opportunities (outside and within the church), education offerings for adults, youth, and children, and community groups for every age and stage.
Also, look at the new Events calendar, which can be viewed as a calendar or as a list. Go to the Members page and you will find that access to our secure member database, Realm, has carried over to our new site.
The new website has only been live for two weeks, and we are still straightening out some kinks. Please let us know if you encounter a link that doesn’t work, a typo, or other errors. Also, please let us know if you love the new site as much as we do! Feel free to share it with your friends and neighbors who might be looking for a faith community. We are pleased with the website, and we fervently hope that it serves our community well for years to come.
