Journey of Faith - 2019
The weekend of March 16-17 was a pivotal time for Nauraushaun Church. At the Saturday luncheon hosted by the Deacons, Dr. Gregory Simpson and his wife Suzanne Campise warmly greeted each person present, asked and answered questions, and started learning everyone’s names. At a congregation meeting immediately after the Sunday service, the congregation voted unanimously to extend a call to Dr. Simpson to be Nauraushaun’s next full-time pastor. Dr. Simpson’s acceptance was greeted with hugs and enthusiastic applause. Pastor Gregory will be in the pulpit again on March 31, Easter Sunday (April 21) and April 28. His start date will be May 13. More to come!

Young Adult Volunteers 2017
On August 27th, Nauraushaun hosted three Young Adult Volunteers who had attended a week-long training at Stony Point and were about to begin a year of mission service. We were all inspired by their commitment and enthusiasm as they shared a little about themselves and what drew them to engage in missions. All three have now settled into the communities where they will be living and working for the next year and have started blogs about their experiences there.
