This Sunday . . .

Promise and Fulfillment

If we were to ask father Abraham, I think he would gladly say that waiting on the Lord is a lifetime job. He did not begin the job until he was 75 years old, but he was committed to the end. Abraham would attest both that God's promises are sure and always fulfilled, and we wait upon the Lord, because that is the best way to live, not just to see God's promises fulfilled.
In Case You Missed It . . .

You can listen to audio from last Sunday's worship service here.

Audio from previous services is available on our Web site.

From the Interim Pastor

New this summer: pictures will be added to our church directory. Thanks to the talents of photographers Rhonda Horton and Bill Goff the church office will be adding individual or family pictures to our church data base. This will allow the office to prepare an updated church directory with pictures. Bill and Rhonda will be on hand on various Sunday's to take candid or posed pictures of you which will then be uploaded to our church data system. The pictures will be casual but enjoyable, most of them will be taken during fellowship. Bill and Rhonda may tap your shoulder on a Sunday and ask you to smile for a picture. Alternately, you may email a family picture to Linda in the office that can be included in the church data base. We just ask that the picture be fairly recent. Let's either avoid pictures prior to 1968 or dedicate a separate page to those Kodak moments.
Our goal is to have as many pictures as possible by the end of summer so we can have a new picture directory sometime in the fall. If you would like to purchase an informal, church printed directory with photos there will be charge. If you would like to view your photos they will be included on a photo page on the church website.
Thank you for bringing your Spirit-inspired smiles to Northmont!

WEDNESDAY CLUB is finished for this session. Please watch for the next session to begin! We so enjoyed learning about David, the shepherd boy, dressing up like kings, and fighting Goliath.
