Inspire - Educate - Empower

New Community Project provides resources and opportunities to inspire, educate and empower faith communities and their members.

  • Our Learning Tours offer transformative encounters with God’s creation and our neighbors                                                              on four continents. These experiences are for all ages, and move participants to deeper                                                        concern for justice and the well-being of our earth.

  • The Students for Change page gives youth lots of ways to act on their faith by healing                                                            creation and helping our neighbors.

  • Got that Sabbatical coming up? Or just looking to dive an little deeper into matters of                                                              justice, earth care and the process of change? Check out dozens of titles on our Reading List

  • Worship resources from short readings to longer skits can bring humor and poignancy                                                                    to important themes of our faith.

  • Special Projects supporting girls’ education, women’s empowerment and reforestation                                                                   are tailor-made for holiday offering emphases, Sunday School classes, women’s groups,                                                                or Vacation Bible School. And we send 100 percent of contributions to the programs                                                                       themselves – really!                                            Promo video for Give a Girl a Chance! >

  • NCP regularly offers a fall campaign that welcomes congregational support which previously included                                            She Has a Dream and A Place of Their Own. We post these on the home page. 

  • Speakers – we got ‘em! Invite NCP staff in for Sunday mornings, weekend retreats, camp programs or other settings.                     We can present on themes ranging from the challenges facing God's children around the world (child workers,                            human trafficking, poverty, environmental threats, native communities, etc.) and the creation (species extinction,                      habitat loss, climate change, simple living, etc.). We’re cheap, knowledgeable and occasionally funny :)

  • Our Sustainable Living Centers in VA and VT put our principles into practice and welcome visitors,                                                  work groups, and longer-term interns (a great option for young adults – or others – looking for the meaning of life).

  • The attached documents offer some ready-to-use materials for promoting NCP in a congregational setting.

 

Like you, we’re a small organization with a Big Goal – to change the world. Together, we can make a difference!
