Summer Movie Nights at NPC

Take a break and catch a movie with us!

This summer, on Wednesdays, in June, July & August, you’re invited to enjoy a free flick followed by an insightful chat hosted by Pastor Andy. Bring your own drinks and snacks (popcorn provided).

This would be a great way to introduce your unchurched friends and family to Northminster in a fun, laid-back way!

Nursery care available UPON REQUEST (by June 6) for age 4 and younger. Contact the Church Office, (520) 327-7121 or to reserve your spot.
