THIS SUNDAY at NORTHMINSTER
Good Morning
Northminster Family
I just had my second shot of the Moderna vaccine. Hopefully you all are getting the vaccines when you are able.
Like all of you, I'm hoping that we'll be in person by Maundy Thursday. Still masked but at least together. With the second dose that I received I also hope that I can begin a schedule of visitation especially with our homebound members.

It has been a hard 12 months for everyone. I'm not sure any of us understood what the isolation might mean. But the Spirit of the Lord has never left us and we will prevail.

Blessings,
Pastor Jim
