Giving to our operating budget is a gift to the ministries we support (Welcome Table, Bartlett Adult Day Out, Porch de Salomon, Habitat for Humanity, etc.). Giving to our budget also provides a beautiful place to worship and a staff to lead our worship. Giving to our budget supports a thriving education department for folks of all ages. Giving to a budget is also the less than elegant fact that it turns on the lights, pays for the phones, and heats the Sanctuary on cold January mornings.
In 2006, we launched a capital campaign to address long overdue maintenance issues and create additional space. In the intervening years, we have invested ourselves in everything from the mundane (a new roof) to the spectacular (a beautiful community gathering space). There is still work to be done, but the first priority is to eliminate the lingering debt. Your gift to this capital campaign is extremely important because it will make an immediate impact. Let’s all do what we can. Not everyone can give a substantial amount, but every gift is significant.
You asked for a way to have your planned giving automatically transferred, so we have set up a direct debit system with Home Federal Bank. For those who don’t have a degree in accounting, that means that you fill out a form, sign it, attach a voided check, return it to the office and every month your planned giving is automatically deducted from your account and transferred to the church’s account.
Another payment option is online banking available from most banking institutions. Contact your bank to find out more information about this option and what financial information you’ll need from the church. You may also call or drop by the office should you need more information from us to get online banking set up.
If you have any questions, please contact Penny Bever in the church office (983-0182 x108), Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Pledging allows New Providence to plan our spending, ensuring that we live within our means. Our Giving Calculator will help you decide what you can pledge to the church. If your circumstances change (you experience a cut back at work, you get a huge raise, you come into an unexpected income, …), all you need to do to change your pledge is contact Penny Bever, Business Administrator, (firstname.lastname@example.org, 983-0182, ext. 108).
Your estimate is being sent directly to Penny and is kept confidential.
Note: Entries on this calculator are not sent anywhere and cannot be seen by anyone else.
I hope that NPPC will always be the open, welcoming, loving church that I have found it to be...a community of Christians that does not shy away from tough questions and is devoutly committed to responding to the needs of people everywhere.
I hope that NPPC will always have outreach to the local community through programs like the Welcome Table, Community Benefit Sale, after school programs, and men’s parking for football games. As much as I enjoy singing in the choir and attending church, it is through serving others that I find my true faith.
NPPC will always be a special place to me because it has allowed me to grow in my relationship with God. As a result, it has helped me in my faith journey in trying to discern God’s will and calling in my life and how to serve others.
I attend NPPC because it has survived the test of time for doing God’s work, in fulfilling the growing needs of its members and the community, and in responding to local, regional, national, and global issues, needs, and concerns. I further attend NPPC because it accepts and attempts to meet the challenges to listen and grow, to teach and lead, to soothe and comfort, to help and support, to embrace its congregation with love and respect, like a family, and to address the various needs of all.
As a young Asian kid growing up in Maryville in the 80’s, it was very evident that I was much different than everyone else. One place I always felt welcome and felt like I truly belonged was at NPPC. It’s a nice feeling to go to a place where you are not stared at strangely but you are welcomed by name. It was here that I learned the kindness and generosity that brought my family here and that still shapes my personality to this day.
NPPC will always be special to us because here we have discovered a warm and welcoming community of faith which nourishes us through rich friendships, meaningful worship, Christian education, and numerous opportunities for service to our church, our community, and to the world. Our lives are so much richer because of New Providence.
NPPC will always be a special place to me because of the energy and love they put into their children’s programs. I remember my very first Vacation Bible School at NPPC, where scores of church volunteers fed my family before we hurried off to our class. I love the way NPPC loves its children.
I give to NPPC because it offers me so many opportunities and ways to grow in my faith and to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to live life as a Christian.
I attend NPPC for many reasons. I have always felt welcomed, intellectually stimulated, and spiritually challenged. The reason at the forefront, however, is that the church has a passion and vision for its youth, which is the greatest blessing a parent can receive.
I attend NPPC because I feel accepted there, and I am a stronger, better person from attending worship there regularly.
When I am going home from the sermon, there is always a word, a phrase or just how humor can be inserted in a way that I remember what the message was about and how I can look at things so differently. They are so powerful!
NPPC will always be a special place to me because we were married here, our two children and two of our grandchildren were baptized here, and our children and grandson have been through confirmation here.
