Our Third-Annual Christmas Store will serve our friends and neighbors who use the Food Bank. You can help with setting up 11:30-1:30 Sunday afternoon, December 16. You can also help with toy distribution 5:30-7:00 Monday evening, December 17. If you’re able to volunteer for either of these times, please contact Jenni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christmas is Missions
Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you” (John 20:21). During this season of Advent and Christmas, we welcome the embodiment of the mission of God, Heaven’s Missionary, Jesus. We also are mindful that God’s Missionary commissioned and empowered His followers to go as well… proclaiming the glorious Gospel in our church, and throughout our networks… and around the world through our missionary staff. Please consider designating a special missions offering this Christmas to support those who are serving around the world on our behalf. You can give online, right now, by clicking here.
There is room for more musicians, especially drummers and guitar players. If you know someone who might like to serve once or twice a month, contact Laurie or Dan Neary.
Many will remember that, by a vote of the membership, Cedar Park authorized the sale of surplus property up the hill and west of Northshore’s building and parking lots. Some have heard that the purchaser backed out of the agreement and are now wondering if a sale is still pending. While the potential sale is delayed, nothing more has changed. The authorization to sell remains and Cedar Park continues to seek buyers.
Your pastoral staff is grateful for the various expressions of appreciation conveyed by the congregation last Sunday. Your participation in the reception, your cards and well wishes, and gifts mean so very much. Thank You!
We are working to secure needed equipment for our worship band, including a guitar, amp, and effects processors. We are raising $1,000 for a good deal on used equipment. If you would like to help us with this project, please designate an offering before the end of the year. Give today by clicking here; select the “other” fund and specify “band.”
Lessons and Carols
Plan to be with us, and bring friends and family, for our traditional candlelit service, 5:00 Christmas Eve. It will be a special hour together as we sing carols, hear the choir, and consider the story of Christmas from Scripture. There will be something special for kids too!
Opportunity to Serve: Wednesday Night Kids Clubs
Rainbows Club is looking for teachers to provide fun, love, and discipleship at Kids Clubs, children ages 3 -5. Rainbows are learning to be helpers and earning their animal badges along the way. Each badge teaches a memory verse and an important Biblical truth. If you are interested, we are looking for volunteers to teach this class on a rotating, quarterly-basis.
We also are looking for someone to lead a small group of our youngest Royal Rangers. These are great young men eager to respond to a leader.
For details and questions on volunteering with Kids Clubs, please contact Allison Fite. (206)949-2591 or email@example.com.
It will be a great Sunday at Northshore! Dan Neary will bring our focus to the Advent-theme of Joy. You won’t want to miss it!
