Good Afternoon Church,
There are no words to express my gratitude for you! You all have stepped up, not only in moving towards online giving, but continually serving in our communities. Lives are being changed and the Gospel of Jesus is being shared as we continue to come together in the name of Jesus. THANK YOU for all that you have done and continue to do!
With that, I would like to give you a quick update on what this upcoming week looks like. This weekend, we will be going Live on Saturday at 5 pm and Sunday at 10 am with our Northway Family. We will be posting both worship sessions on our Facebook page as well as this link: https://go.northway.org/live/. You will also find Kids Church on this page. Just click the KIDS logo and you will find the lessons for your particular age group. I want to encourage you to continue to visit this page throughout the week, because new experiences for your kids will be posting mid-week. This is a great way to keep your kids busy and in the Word.
This Sunday (at noon), our Woman’s Ministry Team will be hosting a Zoom hangout. If you are looking for an opportunity to connect and do life with other women in the church, grab a coffee and some lunch and join in on the conversation. If you are interested in joining, contact Lisa K. at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you the link.
Thursday, April 29th, our Men’s Ministry will be meeting at 7:00 p.m. on zoom as we continue on in our Study of “The Godly Man”. We would love for you to join us. Again, just reach out to me and I will add you to the invite list.
Friday at 7:30, we will be hosting a young adults “Alive” hangout on zoom. I will be sending out a separate email with the invite attached. If you would like to join us but did not receive an invite by 5:30 on Friday, please reach out to me with your email address so I can add you.
Lastly, as we continue to serve our own people in need and those affected by the virus, here are a few updates on how you can contribute and meet needs in our community.
On May 1 at the Northway Wexford Campus and on May 5th at the Dormont campus, we will be having a blood drive to help those affected by the virus. Here is the link to register. Type in the date and the locations will come up: Upcoming blood drive. Help save lives..
Today was the first day of collection for our “Care Packages for the Homeless”, and I was blown away by your generosity. We will continue to collect over the next few weeks on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9-12. Here is the list of items we are looking for:
shampoo (for both Caucasian and African American hair)
conditioner (for both Caucasian and African American hair)
As always, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out.
With Nursing Homes not allowing visitors, it has not only been hard for families but for those living in the homes as well. So, we thought a way we could brighten their days is by sending them a card, letting them know we care about them and are praying for them. We have had a great response so far, but we still have a few more people that we would like to bless. So, if you have some extra time and are willing to send a card or two to brighten someone’s day, please let me know and I will send you a name, their room number as well as the address
To wrap up this email, once again I am so thankful for all of you. In a time of uncertainty and confusion, I believe we as a church have become stronger because of you and your desire to help others and see people come to Jesus. It is a joy to serve alongside you and an Honor to be your pastor. I hope you have a good weekend and I look forward to worshiping with you online.
I truly miss you all so much,
