CALENDAR of EVENTS
Event Updates in Response to Corona
We want to encourage our entire church family to join us via live stream this Sunday, March 29 at 10:30 AM & 6:00 PM. Stay home and join us via livestream. The livestream is in place of our typical gathering. We are endeavoring to be submissive to the recommendation of the CDC and the White House to avoid large gatherings.
If you have a special prayer request, about which you would like corporate prayer, please email us with the details and we will pray for your request with the church family via live stream.
As we mentioned in a previous email, we will take one service/event at a time since the details of this pandemic are constantly changing.
Each live stream will include various aspects, each with the specific goal of strengthening your faith in Christ during this unusual time in our world. With that goal in mind, we encourage you to not miss any of the livestream services.
This pandemic has affected different people in different ways. If you are a member of NorthStone, and have a specific need, please do not hesitate to call our church or contact one of our deacons.
We are happy to serve you in any way we can.
PS: If you have trouble figuring out how to join us through LIVESTREAM, please contact the church, and one of our deacons, or Brother Neisler can come in person to your house and help you set it up. Just let us know.
Melissa Lieb Baby Shower Modification:
The baby shower scheduled for Saturday, April 4 has been modified to accommodate the best interest of Baby Lieb and Melissa due to the coronavirus risk. Instead of gathering for a baby shower, we will be collecting gift bags with gifts over the next few weeks to have delivered to Melissa closer to her due date. Melissa is due with their first child, April 26 and Vinny & Melissa are having a baby boy.
We are asking the people of the church to drop off any gifts for Melissa or the Lieb baby, to the church through Grace Gipson.
Grace is our church secretary and she is in office most days Monday through Wednesday from 9 AM until noon. Feel free to call her and coordinate a time when you can drop off a gift at the church any time in the next few weeks, until Monday, April 20.
We hope to deliver all those gift bags to Melissa on Monday, April 20.
A way that is even easier should you not want to drop off a gift at the church...Melissa Lieb has a baby registry on Amazon. Someone can go online, buy a gift from her baby registry and even have it delivered to her house with a personalized note. That is an easy way to get her a gift.
Either way you choose, we thank you for showing love to Vinny and Melissa in this exciting time in their lives.
43rd Anniversary Sunday/Homecoming:
Sunday, April 5 we are celebrating our church’s anniversary/homecoming. In spite of this pandemic, we will do our best to make the day fun and inspiring via livestream. On that Sunday, we will go live at 10:30 AM with keynote speaker Dr. David Gibbs who will join us remotely. And, this special Sunday will showcase several other exciting anniversary-related aspects via livestream. Then, we will go live again at approximately 1:00 PM for a Q&A with Dr. David Gibbs.
Dr. Gibbs is an attorney and the founder of the Christian Law Association & Gibbs Law Firm and whom God has greatly used over the years. If you would like to submit a question, please send the church an email with your question.
Ladies fellowship scheduled for Tuesday, April 7th will need to be rescheduled. The plan will be Lord-willing that we postpone the Mexican themed ladies fellowship to the next scheduled fellowship time which is Tuesday, July 7th.
Update on "The War”
Due to the timing of this pandemic, and the strong federal and local recommendations for social distancing, we feel that it is appropriate to postpone “the War” teen outreach. Optimistically, we will plan to invite Brother Bosler and his War team to join us in 2021.
