Christmas Tea

Halloween Carnival

Our annual neighborhood celebration, CARNIVAL, is almost here!

CARNIVAL is a free, fun, and safe place for families within our church and the Kenmore community to bring their children on Halloween night. It takes a lot of people to make this event possible each year. We want to invite our community through our doors, and give them a great time!

We’ll have games, a cake walk, lots of candy, a room just for preschoolers, and new this year a live animal encounter with our friends from Zoo for All. Join us as we welcome our Kenmore neighbors in for this exciting event!

Volunteer sign-ups and cake-baking sign-ups are available at the children’s ministry check-in station down the hall. Candy donation bins are available in the main lobby. Please partner with us and help make this fun, community event a success. If you have any questions, please contact Allison Fite at

Sale of Surplus Property

Thank you to all who have participated in the discussion regarding the potential sale of the undeveloped property west (uphill) from Northshore’s building and parking. In addition to the meeting hosted by Jay Smith 10/1, there has been productive, ongoing discussion resulting in a commitment from Cedar Park’s leaders to a plan that will relieve Northshore’s operating budget from responsibility for mortgage payments (principle and interest) when the sale closes. This decreased expense will cover the loss of revenue from rents, and provide room in future budgets for depreciation of additional capital expenses (thus enabling some of the redecorating currently under consideration).

Upon receiving this news, Northshore’s Leadership Council (deacons and lead pastor) unanimously expressed appreciation to Cedar Park’s leaders for the commitment; the Council also unanimously expressed their full support of the proposed project, including the sale, as described in the updated document at “It is awesome to have everyone on the same page as we take next steps; there is real excitement about how all of this will impact our ministry together in the years ahead,” said Pastor Dan. If you have any questions or comments as the project moves toward the next step (approval at the Cedar Park Annual Business Meeting 10/29) please contact Pastor Dan (, our deacons, or Pastor Jay.

Senior’s Dinner

Those 55 and over are invited to a Senior’s Dinner 6:30, October 20 in the gym at Cedar Park – Bothell. The cost is $5. For more information, contact Dane Snyder (

Renter Needed

We have an opening for a male renter in our Intern House ($400 monthly). For more information, contact Chris Jensen (

Cedar Park Business Meeting

Members are encouraged to attend and participate in Cedar Park’s annual business meeting, 6:00, Sunday, October 29. Members of Northshore are members of Cedar Park.

Northshore Annual Meeting

Following our Sunday service on November 5, we will have a short business meeting that will include election of deacons, review of finances, and a report of plans for the future. All are welcomed to attend (only members vote).

Deacon Nominations

We will be electing two deacons to serve on our Leadership Council at our annual meeting. The deacons with expiring terms are Jody Brengan, and Chris Riser; they are each eligible for reelection. Please nominate others for consideration by contacting one of the members of the nominating committee: Dan Olson, Liz Ugorcak, Dan Jacobsen, or Dan Neary.

Dirty Jobs

Have you ever watched that show about Dirty Jobs and thought: I want a dirty job!!?

We have a few of our own dirty jobs that need attention. Perhaps you would like to pick up one of these jobs and lead:

  • Parking Lot Striping: We need to touchup and renew the paint in our lots.
  • Deck Cleaning and Surfacing: We need to powerwash the second-floor deck and apply a textured surface so that it is less slippery when wet.

If you would like to take on a dirty job for us, contact Jenni Jensen ( or Dan Neary.


It will be a great Sunday at Northshore! Pastor Dan Neary will kick off our new series from the New Testament Book of Romans that we are calling By Faith. We also plan to make a special presentation to Convoy of Hope recognizing the proceeds of the Food Truck Fest. You won’t want to miss it.
