The Latest from our blogs…

Christian Faith & Other Faiths: Judaism

Beginning Wednesday, February 21, Table Talk will resume the series Christian Faith and Other Faiths: Understanding and Outreach. Our focus will be on Judaism, emphasizing how our understanding of Jewish history and theology shapes our understanding of Christianity. On the first two evenings, Michael Babcock will highlight Jewish history from the biblical era until today. For the next two weeks, Bob Mills will help us explore three distinctive Jewish doctrines – monotheism, covenant, and law – and consider how those doctrines are foundational to, and have been transformed by, Christianity. Our final evening will return to the topic of outreach, specifically looking at the local church as the base for evangelism.

YARD SALE TO SUPPORT Daystar Junior School- Sat., April 21

Last August on a missions Sunday, we heard Nyanzi Jude speak about his Christian school in Uganda, serving children ages 3- approximately 11.  Although his school is growing, they still have many needs.  Since last fall, the school has been building a larger structure with a new kitchen; however, they still have not finished.

On April 21 we will hold a yard sale to raise money to support Daystar Junior School.  We are excited for the possibility of giving these young children a better, healthier environment in which to learn and grow in their Christian faith.

We welcome items for children such as toys, clothes, furniture, also books for all ages, and most household items.  We have seen in the past that adult clothing does not sell well, so we will not be accepting clothes.          

Watch our newsletter and website for more details as we get closer to April 21.  Contact Vonnie Rucker or Maggie Brockman if you have questions.

Visit Daystar’s website to learn more about the work at Daystar Junior School Kirombe. http://www.daystar.ac.ug.   Also friend Nyanzi Jude on his FaceBook page.

Keeping up with Northminster on Facebook

One of the tools we, and many other churches, use to stay connected with our members and the community is Facebook.  Recently, Facebook has made some much needed changes to what appears in your news feed.  While these changes are necessary and important, one of the consequences is that our posts to our Facebook Page aren’t pushed out to those who “like” our page as much as they used to be.  Here are some helpful tips on how to ensure that you are seeing our posts:
  • Make sure you click “See First”. As shown in the picture above, this will prioritize Northminster’s posts in your news feed.  Hover over the “Following” button near the cover photo, then select “See First.”
  • Edit your News Feed Preferences.  On a desktop computer, click the Down Arrow next to the Help icon (a ‘?’) in the upper right corner, then click “News Feed Preferences.”  In the Facebook app on your phone or tablet, click the Menu icon in the bottom right corner (looks like three lines), then scroll down to “News Feed Preferences.”  From here, you can choose which pages you would like to see more frequently in your news feed.
  • Like, Comment and Share posts.  The more folks interact with posts on the church’s Page, the more people will be reached with those posts.  You can also share any posts or sermons from our website by clicking the blue “Share” button included in each post.
We hope these tips will be helpful for you.  Let us know if you have any questions!
