A Word From Our Pastor

I want to first thank the Northside family for the recognition on Sunday, May 23, for another anniversary of serving alongside you. Your support and prayers mean everything to Marilyn and me. Both of us appreciate you sending us to Alaska the end of June to be a part of the Walker Baptist Association mission trip. You might know that the Alabama Baptist State Convention has just begun a five-year partnership with the Alaska Baptist Convention to support them in their effort to reach their state for Christ. This mission trip is a part of that partnership.

     This Thursday, June 3, we will be taking a group of our men and teenage boys to First Baptist Church in Winfield for a Man Church Conference led by Rick Burgess.



The meeting begins at 6:30. We are planning to leave the church at 4:30 and enjoy a meal together in Winfield before the meeting. If you would like to go you can let us know in the church office so we will be sure to have adequate transportation.

     Vacation Bible School is coming up June 7-11 from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. Preparations are being made to welcome many children to this special week of VBS. Be in prayer for this week as we have the privilege to teach these precious little ones about the love of Jesus.

Music & Outreach

Our adult Sunday School classes return to normal this coming Sunday, June 6th! If you have never attended a Sunday School group at Northside, or have been waiting for normal groups to return, consider joining us this Sunday.

Following are some changes happening in some of our classes.

  • Kristi and I will now be leading the college class.
  • Mark and Andrea Nuss will now be leading the young adult class that was formerly led by the Robinsons. This class is designed for people in their mid 20's-30's or parents of preschoolers.
  • The adult classes formerly led by Ed Davidson, Glen Gravlee, and David Hendon are combining. This co-ed class will meet in the available room on the upstairs adult hall (room 214). It will be co-taught by Ed Davidson and David Hendon. This group is primarily made up of people in their 60's and 70's.
  • JoAnne Hendon will be the new leader of the class formerly led by Donna Kilgore. Ladies from the class JoAnne previously taught can choose whether to attend this class or the Jeannie King class.
  • All other adultclasses remain the same as they did pre-covid and will meet in their usual room.
  • We hope you'll consider taking part in any one of our classes this Sunday beginning at 9:45 AM.

NBC Kids

     Hello NBC family! We are truly blessed at NBC with a group of really great kids who are ready to be involved and learn about God. Thank you parents for making sure they don't miss out on the fun! Our summer schedule of activities is out and we have a lot planned.

      The first couple of Wednesdays in June are devoted to Children's Choir. Our kids are getting a head start on learning VBS music. GAs and RAs will be learning about Anthony and Riley Driver and the mission work they do in Central Asia for the rest of the month.

     VBS is June 7th to the 11th and is available for ages 4 to 6th grade. Make sure you invite someone. In that line of thought, planning and decorating is almost complete with the final touches being finished up this week.  If you would like to plug into this ministry, reach out, we have a place for you. Also, I want to thank everyone who has played a part in putting VBS together. Our kids are going to have a blast and I believe it will reach hearts. 

     If you have a calling to work with NBC Kid's Ministry,  reach out, we have a place for you. See me if you are interested.

    CentriKid is June 28th to July 2nd and I know our kids are excited. To our parents of fourth to sixth graders: this is a reminder that CentriKid balances are due by June 9th. You can turn those in to me.

Upcoming events:

  •      Donuts for Dads will be held on Father's Day Sunday for kids age 4 through 6th grade and their dads in the Children's Department before Sunday School.
  •      Family Bowling night will be Thursday, June 24th. I hope to see everyone there! Check with me about time and cost!!

I know greater things are coming! Hope to see you soon. God loves you.

NBC Student Ministry

What a wonderful graduate ceremony we had! Thanks to everyone who made it a great day.

Parent/Participant Meeting for FUGE this Sunday immediately after worship. Medical forms will be available to those who need them and other important info will be shared. Just a reminder: If Mrs. Phyllis is to notarize your form it must be signed in her presence. You may also get it notarized elsewhere if you so choose. Your bank usually offers that service as well as the UPS store for a fee. Be sure to bring a copy of the front and back of your medical insurance card when you bring your completed form to the church.

Students, if you have not paid for your FUGE t-shirt, see me this Sunday. All the shirts are $10 each.

Love in Christ,

Bro. Justin
