Church Picnic June 21st- Save the Date!

Join us as we continue Nardin Park’s “reunion year” 50th anniversary celebration with previous pastors! Rev. Richard Peacock, who served as our pastor from 1993-1997, will be the guest preacher at the 10 am Sunday Worship service.

We will continue the celebration with a Father’s Day all-church picnic including activities for all ages!

Sign-ups for the picnic lunch will begin in late May. The picnic lunch will be a free-will donation, but please sign up so we have a headcount.

Staff Blog

Curious to know what’s on the minds of our church staff? The [intlink id=”169″ type=”page”]Staff Blog[/intlink] will feature regular postings from the staff on topics ranging from recent experiences, future sermon topics, upcoming events, and more.

Subscribing to the podcast allows you to download any/all sermons into your iPod or other MP3 player, so you can listen to sermons anytime/anywhere on the go (even when driving to work!). New sermons are generally available on the website to enjoy within a couple days of the actual service.

RSS Feeds

What are RSS feeds and why should you care about them? Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds are a way for websites to distribute their content well beyond just visitors using browsers. Feeds permit subscription to regular updates, delivered automatically via a web portal, news reader, or in some cases good old email.

Many of us use customized homepages called MyYahoo or iGoogle to bring in headlines/content from sites all around the web. This content is actually an RSS feed from each website. Nardin Park’s new webpage offers four separate RSS feeds that you can add to your MyYahoo or iGoogle homepage. You can also choose to use RSS reader software or receive email updates whenever new content is added. Simply click on the [intlink id=”182″ type=”page” target=”_blank”]RSS feeds section[/intlink] of the Nardin Park page and choose which feed you would like to use and how you would like to use it.

RSS feeds include:

  • Ministry Staff Blog
  • Announcements
  • Calendar
  • Sermon Podcasts & Text
