THIS SUNDAY at NORTHMINSTER

The State has reduced the age criteria so that everyone over 50 is now eligible for their Covid 19 vaccination. That brings us one step closer to real in-person worship. Please get your vaccination and let's cautiously get back to sharing our worship in-person with one another in the very near future.
I look forward to seeing and talking with all of you at the church and / or in your homes.

Blessings to you all,
Pastor Jim

POTENTIAL CHANGE in HOURS on March 23

On Tuesday, March 23, my sister will be having a second eye surgery and once again I'll be her driver. I won't know the time of her appointment until the day before. Please make note that I may have to adjust hours on that day. If I come in later in the day, I will respond to any emails or phone messages as soon as I arrive.
Thanks for your understanding...Barb
