The group, hailing from First Congregational, St.Luke’s Episcopal and Noroton Presbyterian got together to help the kids learn that in a world that is constantly dividing us, people can put differences aside and work and learn together. First Congregational youth minister Gary Morello helped to orchestrate the unprecedented town youth ministry, and is excited to help to “young people a platform to engage in relationships as well as learn about pure moral character.”

This was just the first meeting of what promises to be a growing group.

This past Sunday, April 3, hundreds of members of Noroton Presbyterian Church (NPC) participated in 25 community service projects around Darien for the first annual NPC Service Day. 

The idea was for the church community to come together, all ages and stages, and serve their greater community. “NPC Service Day was really a chance for our congregation to give back to our community through service.  It was beautiful to see young and old having fun and serving our neighbors together,” said senior pastor, Samuel Schreiner. The day was a year in the making with projects for everyone, i.e. outside projects, sitting down projects, manual labor projects, etc. The idea was to have a wide variety of one to three hour shifts so that each member could sign up for one or more, either as a family or individually.
