This Sunday: "Hope Happens Here - Part II"

Scripture: Hebrews 11:1-2; 13-16

Join us On Campus or Online | Sunday,September 18 at 10:30 am

Hope Happens Here. Last week Pastor Law noted that "If you don't have hope, faith has no job." It's also true that if you don't have aspiration, then you don't need hope. One only hopes for what we aspire to be true in the future. As we enter into this weekend, how can we stir our imaginations for what together we AND God want to be true in our lives, our congregation, community and world? Buechner talks about the meeting place of our deep longing with the world's deep need. What needs in the world tug at your heart and stir you toward action? Bring these imaginings with you into our worship time this weekend and next week, trusting that God will meet us at our place of openness. See you soon.

A Note from our Director of Admin & Finance

A couple of weeks ago, Pastor Law’s weekly message asked everyone where they saw themselves in the story of Northway’s vision and where God was calling us in this story. I found these to be pretty interesting questions given it was my first official day on staff. The truth is, the questions she posed were ones I’d been wondering myself.

At a recent eye appointment in Houston, I inquired at the front desk when my new contact lenses were expected to arrive. I was trying to determine if I’d still be in Houston or if they should be mailed to Dallas. The woman working the desk caught me off guard when she asked, “What kind of work do you do in Dallas that you can’t do here?” I stared at her, not certain how to respond because the answer was, not only can my work be done in Houston, I’d already been doing it from the comfort of my own home for quite some time. So why change? And why Dallas? In all our trips to and through Dallas, my husband John and I have never thought much of it other than Dallas is the city where you can drive on 4 different highways at the same time. Yet here we are. 

Looking back, John saw it coming before I did. When I’d talk about Northway, he’d ask, “You realize you’re saying we instead of they, don’t you?” It was true. I was becoming a part of Northway and hadn’t even noticed. Of course, how could I not? The love here is obvious, the sense of community is strong, and the love of Jesus is evident. 

I can’t say I’ve got a definitive answer on what role I have in the story of Northway and I’m still uncertain where God is calling me in that story. But I know my call for employment extends far beyond the one on paper. And I know I smile to myself every time I hear John say we when he refers to Northway now. We belong here and we are incredibly grateful to be a part of His plan. 

Hope happens here!

We'll be collecting donations of peanut butter jars in noisy offering style during the Sunday worship services throughout the month of September.  You may also contribute monetarily by giving online and selecting "Peanut Butter Drive" fund in the drop down.
