Wednesday nights | 6:30-8:30 pm at NPC (6400 Post Road).

Stillwater is NPC's youth ministry program.  It exists to create space for students to gather together with adults to be engaged by the gospel of Jesus Christ, to be equipped to study his Word for themselves, to bond as a community, and to process life together.

Stillwater is our home for middle school and high school students, and includes weekly worship and study, discussion groups, serving the hurting and homeless, house parties, and life-changing summer road trips. For more information contact Pastor Drew Wilkins.

Winter/Spring Calendar

Get the word on what's happening when as Stillwater rolls through volunteer opportunities, the weekly rhythms, unique events, and all the other madness that goes into the term.  Here's the basics:

Stillwater — Wednesdays, 6:30-8:30 PM, Jan. 11th - May 3rd @ NPC (6400 Post Rd.).  Come hang out, play games, get to know one another, and worship together!  This is the place to get connected with the group and push your understanding of God's Word and your experience.  Over the Winter/Spring we'll be discussing Ephesians, with an eye towards our response to the great love with which he has loved us.

Sunday School! — Sundays, 9 AM @ NPC Library.  Join us for bagels, OJ, and time to hang out and explore God’s Word.  During our first term we’ll be considering the issues, stories, and characters that have formed our faith with our series Doctrines, Confessions, & Dead Guys.  In our second term we’ll explore a selection of Psalms, considering various elements of worship and their relevance to everyday life in the modern experience.  

Feb. 1st — Destination X!  6-9pm @ NPC, $5 per person.  Invite a friend to come get to know the group while we travel off-site to go exploring and find an adventure!  There’s no guarantee as to what we’ll end up doing, but whatever it is, you’re sure to have a blast and collect some awesome memories with the group.  

Mar. 5th — Solomon’s Porch! 6:30-8:30pm @ NPC!  You know those questions that you're just not sure you could ask?  Bring ‘em here.  Anonymously write down any question you want about life the universe, or anything, and just toss it in the Urn Of Questions.  We’ll pull them out, attempt to read your handwriting, and take a crack at answering it through the lens of Scripture.  And also there’s free pizza!  

Mar. 10-11th — The Overnighter!  Building-wide night games, networked video consoles, epic sardines competitions, midnight movies, and fantastic food!  Come stay up way-too-late, have way-too-much fun, and eat way-too-much food together at the 3rd annual middle school OVERNIGHTER!

Apr. 5th — Destination X!  6-9pm @ NPC, $5 per person.  Invite a friend to come get to know the group while we travel off-site to go exploring and find an adventure!  There’s no guarantee as to what we’ll end up doing, but whatever it is, you’re sure to have a blast and collect some awesome memories with the group.  

May 3rd —  End of Year Bonfire!  6-8pm @ NPC.  A big fire, S’mores galore, and good times spent playing games, reviewing the year, and taking time to reflect on how we've seen God working in and through us.  Don’t miss this chance to celebrate God’s work within the Stillwater crew!
