50th Anniversary Celebration
Sunday, October 22, 2017
On October 14,1967, the cornerstone of the present day National Presbyterian Church building here on Nebraska Ave was laid by President Eisenhower. This October, we will celebrate how the Holy Spirit boldly led us from a downtown Romanesque church, with no parking or room to grow, to a brand-new Modernist sanctuary in a setting of over 12 acres, allowing us to expand our mission and further spread Christ's love to the broader community. That same Spirit is leading us into a future serving God in this city and around the world.
Save the date for the morning of October 22 as we celebrate with:
- Special guest preacher Earl Palmer: former interim pastor at National, and founder of Earl Palmer Ministries
- 50 year anniversary exhibits: exploring our history in pictures and stories
- Luncheon: hear from Dr. Renwick about God's work in our church and enjoy a video about our history and our future
