Northshore From Home
We are looking forward to gathering together again online with a live-stream on YouTube and Northshore’s Facebook page at 10:00 Sunday morning. If you can’t join us live, you’ll find much of the service available later Sunday, as usual, on Northshore’s web pages.
We had a lot of great feedback from our online gatherings; please plan to join us!
Sunday is Palm Sunday, and the first Sunday of the month. On first Sundays we celebrate Communion together. Plan to participate with us this Sunday during our online gathering. Have some bread and grape juice ready, if you can. If you don’t have those precise supplies, don’t worry… substitute what you have, and look forward to a meaningful moment together. (For a resource regarding celebrating Communion at home, check out Don Detrick’s summary by clicking here.)
Star On the Live-Stream
Want to be on the live-stream? Record a video saying “hi” to everyone and send the file to Dan (firstname.lastname@example.org) by noon Friday (keep it super short, 5 words or less). Who knows??? You might get picked and become an internet sensation.
Like, Share, and Subscribe
We’re hearing that friends and family members are joining us for our online gatherings; people who haven’t been willing to come along to a church building on Sunday mornings are coming along to church online. That is awesome!
You can help generate traffic that draws people into our online gatherings with strategies that include:
- Respond to Facebook invitations, indicating that you are “going”, and share the invite.
- Like and share the video.
- Comment on video and posts from Northshore.
- Subscribe to the YouTube channel.
Activity like this triggers the algorithms in various social-media platforms so that they more frequently, and prominently, appear on your friends’ feeds.
4K with Kyle
You’ll see a new series of short messages, by Kyle Chermak, from the Book of Judges on Northshore’s Facebook page. You can also catch up on the series on Vimeo by clicking here.
Today would be an excellent day to take advantage of our easy-to-use online giving. You can give to Northshore, our various ministries, and our missionaries by clicking here. Please consider setting up recurring giving if you are a regular part of things at Northshore. While our gatherings in our building are temporarily suspended, our expenses and obligations continue. Thank you for your generous faithfulness in giving.
Food Bank Open
With a reworked plan, we are open again on Mondays to serve those in need. Our new drive-up/curb-side approach allows for appropriate social-distancing during these extraordinary days. There are bins outside the front door available for donations of non-perishable food throughout the week, or make a designated donation online.
Food Bank Volunteers Needed
We continue to look for additional volunteers to serve in our Food Bank for the coming several weeks, especially those who are not part of higher-risk categories (translation: we need people who are healthy and under 60). If you are available to help, or have questions, contact Nancy Jacobsen (email@example.com).
Closure Due to Covid-19
In light of directives from our State and County governments, in harmony with other Cedar Park churches, and out of an abundance of caution, we are canceling all in-person gatherings and meetings scheduled at Cedar Park Northshore’s Kenmore campus through April.
Furthermore, with the Governor’s stay-at-home order, we are directing employees to work at home as much as possible through April, therefore we will not have regular business hours.
Government guidelines deem much of what we do at Northshore during the week as essential services, especially outreaches like the Food Bank. So, we will continue to operate with staff and volunteers occasionally on our campus. We will continue to record elements of our online gatherings. We will check voice mail, mail and such.
Kamp Kenmore Early Registration
Help spread the word that registration is open for Kamp Kenmore at www.KampKenmore.com. Families that register early qualify for a discount. We are planning to keep things as scheduled for Kamp, and will make adjustments as warranted in the coming months.
Kamp Kenmore Staff
We are hiring! Northshore is looking for awesome Christians to employ as kamp kounselors this summer at Kamp Kenmore; there are opportunities for everyone, especially young men. Kamp Kenmore is going to be a great adventure for kids and kounselors, alike. If you or someone you know is interested in summer employment, please contact Allison Fite (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
