Update from the Elders
We are praying that this find you and your family doing well. As your elders, we are praying that God would fill you “with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that you might walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God.” (Col. 1:9-10)
We are so thankful for all of you. We are thankful for those of you that are not able to join our gatherings yet, because we know that you are eager to do so and are praying for us. We are thankful for those of you who have been gathering with us, because you have helped us ensure a safe gathering for all those present by practicing the mitigation strategies our local government has encouraged. We are looking forward to the day that we can all gather together again.
Updated Contact Info (Emails and Phone Numbers)
Throughout this pandemic, our goal has been to communicate our thoughts and plans for the church in as concise and helpful a manner as possible. That has happened primarily through these communications. In an effort to make sure that all of our Northside family is getting our reports, we want the church database to be as up to date as possible. Please send us your most up to date emails and cell phone numbers. If you know someone who is a member or regular attender at Northside who is not receiving our emails, please tell them to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact info. Thank you for your help!
We ask you to join us in praying for the Northside Kids Ministry. Our new Children’s Ministry Director, Danielle Root, has been working closely with pastoral staff in an effort to provide some safe, in-person children’s programming. The AWANA kicked off their year in September, so please pray for the kids and volunteers that come to the church building on Wednesday evenings. Additionally, Northside Kids is planning on offering childcare (birth to Kindergarten) starting November 1st and children’s church (1st thru 5th grade) during the worship hour starting on Sunday, November 8th. Please pray for the volunteers and kids who will be participating in this!
Pastor Search Team
We ask you to continue to pray for the Pastor Search Team as they continue to seek the Lord’s guidance in searching for Northside’s next Senior Pastor.
Finally, we want to remind you that we have another scheduled Member’s Meeting coming up on Sunday, November 15th at 6 pm in the auditorium. We will be discussing, among other items, the 2021 Budget. Weather permitting, there will also be an informal fellowship gathering in the parking lot for those who are able to attend.
Stay in touch!
Finally, we hope that you have been able to join us at the official church Facebook page to watch our weekly worship services and the Tuesday/Thursday Devotionals. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can still use this link to watch the videos on the Facebook page. You do not need a FB sign-in to view the videos. We invite everyone to join us for our worship service at 10:30 am every Sunday morning, either in person or via the Facebook page.
We would remind you to please let the elders and/or staff know if you receive a COVID positive diagnosis and you attended our in-person gatherings in the past two weeks. This would go a long way in helping us keep the rest of the congregation safe. Your name will be kept confidential.
Your Elders (Mike Bowman, John Reeder, Dennis Brooks, Jim Moran, and Nate Brock)
