Noel Loves Highland!

Another way Noel Community Arts Program is reaching out into the Highland Neighborhood.  This freestanding "Noel Loves Highland" mural is from the NCAP Youth Mural Series that was held in May.  It has been installed in the greenspace across from Noel. Drive by the corner of Highland and Herndon to check it out! NCAP gives a big thanks to their teacher, @addiethenomad, their builder, Dave Fortuna, and their partners at Renzi Center for making it possible.

Volunteering at Noel
As members of Noel, we commit ourselves to uphold this church we love by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness.  Volunteering in our many ministries is not only a blessing to those we serve, but to ourselves.  Please take some time to pray about where God is calling you in ministry, then pick up one of our Ministry Opportunities Brochures around the church or online and let us know what speaks to you.
Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'  Matthew 25:40
