A Word From Our Pastor

     

Ladies, I am excited for those of you who are taking part in the Priscilla Shirer event taking place in Birmingham on Saturday, September 11. You are sure to be blessed by spending time together with other like-minded ladies studying God’s Word.

     

 

The following day on September 12, a group of men from our church will travel to Black Mountain, NC, after the morning worship service to take part in a mission trip to the children’s home there. If you are interested in going with us for even part of the week, please contact David Hendon for details.

     

 

On Tuesday, September 21, we will be hosting the Senior Adult Hymn Sing sponsored by our state convention. It will begin at 10:00 a.m. and conclude at noon. Come and join us for a morning of praise and worship as we sing some of the great old hymns together. Bro. Frank Jones will be leading us as we worship our Lord in song.

    

That same week on Thursday night, September 23, we will be kicking off our emphasis on men’s discipleship as we have our first ever Man Church worship service at 6:30. Rich Wingo will be our guest speaker. While this is a men’s event, I am going to invite you ladies to gather in the fellowship hall for a season of prayer while our service is in progress. We are praying for the salvation of many men that night as well as other important decisions needing to be made. My hope is that one day in the future we will look back on this event as being a watershed moment in the life of our church. It certainly has that potential. Whether or not that happens will be up to us.

Music & Outreach

Are you a friendly person who doesn't mind talking to strangers? Have I got an opportunity for you. We are in need of greeters. Tuesday, September 21, we need greeters to serve at our senior adult singing. The event is from 10 AM - Noon. We'll need you here by 9am. Then, on Thursday night, September 23, we need greeters to serve at Man Church. That event begins at 6:30 PM. We'll need greeters here by 5:30. We are also rebooting our weekly greeter ministry. Every Sunday we need greeters to serve before Sunday School and before worship.

     We are so thankful for all of the volunteers we have who serve so faithfully on Sundays in our nursery, patrol, music ministry, tech ministry, and teaching Sunday School. If you're not already doing one of those things, being a greeter might be a perfect ministry for you. We have more than enough people in our church family to easily cover all of these needs if everyone would agree to plug into one. Let me know if you're willing to help, and I'll get you more information.

NBC Kids

Hello NBC family! Well, a new school year has begun, and everyone is busy settling into new schedules or working with constantly changing schedules. It looks as if it may be one of those school years again. It gives me peace to know that nothing surprises God and that everything is working to glorify Him!  Let’s all remember to pray for our administrators, teachers, students and parents as this school year progresses and evolves. 

     Wednesdays in September are devoted to missions. This month our kids will be learning about J. D. and Andreina Fasolino and the work that they do as church planters in the Spanish speaking community in Toronto, Canada. The children will learn how bold compassion changes lives! The children will also spend time learning about Kathleen Mallory, Martha Myers, and the Cooperative Program and how they are all important to State Missions. Sunday evenings are devoted to Bible Drill. Our 4th, 5th and 6th graders have begun preparing for Bible Drill Camp and ultimately State Bible Drill. If you have a calling to work with NBC Kids’ Ministry, reach out -  we have a place for you.

Also in upcoming events:

September: Mum Sale for NBC Kids’ Ministry: Sale starts September 19 and continues an the 22 and 26. Delivery will be early October.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child will be here before we know it. Would you like a Personal Shopper to purchase your items and pack your shoebox this year?

     You will find envelopes on the foyer table and in the front of the black offering drop boxes. All you have to do is fill in the envelope, place your money inside and someone will shop for you.

    Money collection dates are August 4 - October 10. A gift of $34 will allow your shopper to purchase $25.00 in items and have $9 for the requested shipping. Can’t afford $34? No donation is too small. Smaller donations will be combined to build more boxes. That way, everyone can participate. These checks should be made payable to Northside.

     If you choose to pack your own box, checks for shipping should be made payable to Samaritan’s Purse as usual.  Be sure to place the label from your brochure on top of your box and place the attached envelope with cash/check inside your box on top of your items. The deadline to return those boxes will be Sunday, November 14.

Thank You  

 - I want to thank everyone for the prayers, texts, calls, food, food cards, and cards. My doctor says I can now use my arm as much as I can tolerate. Ribs are still sore but not nearly as bad. I will have the plate and screws removed after 8 months if my collarbone continues to heal like it has been. You are a wonderful church family.

 - On behalf of the Elmore and Calvert families we would like to thank the church and staff for the kind words, cards and food given to our families during the week of the loss of our loved ones. It is so good to belong to a church family who supports its people when they need it the most. With Love,  Patsy and Rick Brown 

 - Thanks to everyone for the prayers and cards during and after the loss of my father, Terry Chandler. Kristi and Chris Cain, Hunter and Hayden

 - Church Family, Thank you for every act of kindness to me and my family during my recent surgeries and recuperation. We appreciate every card, phone call and prayer so very much. Jerry Ross
