Welcoming Special Guests on Sunday

Join Us For Brunch

On Sunday, February 12th, Old North will be hosting our RIM refugee family and RIM partners Temple Emanu-el and St Andrew's Church at the 10:00 AM service. The Christian Service and Fellowship Committees will offer a light brunch following the service so that members of our congregations can have an opportunity to surround this lovely Haitian mother and her young daughter with our support.  Red and pink Valentine hearts will be available at the brunch tables to fill a basket with love and good wishes.  Please join us! If you are able to provide a food contribution to the brunch (juice, muffins, coffee cake, tea breads, fruit, etc.) please email sallybsands@gmail.com.  
Children's Church News
Please stop by for some lemonade after the 10:00 service in the Parish Hall. The children will be selling lemonade and baked goods to raise money for their event with the REAL program in April. There will be more information to follow about this fun event.

  • Children's Books: Do you have a favorite children's book to share?
  • Origami: Do you know how to make a peace crane? A dove? A fish? Are you willing to teach us how to make them too?

Rehearsals for the Palm Sunday Lenten Concert Begin March 1st                       
Rehearsals for the annual Palm Sunday Lenten Concert will begin on Wednesday, March 1st at 7:30pm in the Parish Hall. This year's repertoire will include Requiem in c minor, a stunning work, by Michael Haydn. (last performed at Old North in 2013). The young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart attended the first two performances of Haydn's Requiem twenty years before he composed his own version, which is strikingly similar! Rehearsals will take place every Wednesday evening through Palm Sunday and will include two Saturday rehearsals, April 1, and 8 from 10am-12pm. The performance will take place on the evening of Palm Sunday, April 9, at 7:30pm. All interested singers should contact Maria vanKalken at vankalken@gmail.com so that we will be sure to have enough scores at the first rehearsal. All singers welcome!
