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.
