YOThe Ornaments are Coming!
This year, the NPPC Youth Connection will again be selling "Stained Glass" series ornaments to raise money for their trip to Guatemala in Summer 2021. For the past seven years, the Youth Connection has sold ornaments depicting various stain glass windows in the NPPC sanctuary.

The new addition this year is the Livingstone window. Additional bundles, previous years' designs, and exclusive pricing will also be available. Pre-order forms will be available in mid-November. Inventory is limited, so you are encouraged to pre-order if you want a chance at getting the ornament(s) you want. If you have any questions, please reach out to Louden (, 865-983-0182 x109).
RSResearch Study Survey 
Rylee Worstell, UT student, has asked if we would participate in a survey for one of her classes:

This is a part of an ethnographic research study regarding the effects of music in a worship setting. It should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. All responses are voluntary and will remain anonymous. Responses will be complied and analyzed as a group. I appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey!
