Weekly Update 12/1/21

December already! Where has the year gone!

I hope you had a Great Thanksgiving Day! Other than the Dallas Cowboys getting robbed—it was a great day!

I was so encouraged by our Church Thanksgiving Meal. Mark Botsford did a great job with the Community Kitchen crew. We provided over 300 Thanksgiving Meals up and down the 99 Corridor. Stephen Haney and other key volunteers made this one of the smoothest dinners ever. We provided opportunities for people to pick up a meal and we delivered them to others who couldn’t get out. I heard some great stories from each campus about their deliveries. I know I love doing this with my granddaughter Aubrey and this year my grandson Weston, who is 4, wanted to help! It’s so good to serve together! The Ferris family—were some of our super servants—as all 7 of them helped get the meals ready. 

We’re off to a great start in our Advent season as we prepare and get ready to celebrate the coming of Jesus, the Light of world, entering the Dark world!

Praying you will engage and encourage others to get in on the ADVENT ADVENTURE! A great way to continue to Shine the light this season. Several different opportunities. Boxes of Hope are still available at all campuses. This is a fairly simple way to meet some needs and give to others. Encourage others to join you in this. We need them back by Dec. 12.  

Last week I mentioned our Christmas Devotional. The devotions start today. Devotions were written and filmed from all 4 of our campuses. Tigard, Newberg, McMinnville and our Online Campus—NCC LIVE.   Pick up a devotional booklet at your campus, and go to the website or our YouTube channel to view them during the weekday!

This Saturday we officially kick off the NCC Christmas Season with Simply Christmas! This event will be at each campus beginning at 6 p.m. There will be Gingerbread house Contest, Decorating Cookies, Pictures with Santa, and more. We will sing some Christmas Carols and light the tree at each campus at 6:45! It’s going to be a great event! Be sure to invite some of your friends and family to this event. Families and kids will have a great time!

At the Newberg Campus we will start earlier in the day with a Christmas Bazaar. Debbie Groat tells me there are over 60 vendors that have signed up! You can get some Christmas shopping in and support some local people, even some from our own church!  We will have Hutch & Lucky’s food truck there. It’s from 9am – 3pm.

This Sunday we have a Service of Remembrance at our Newberg and McMinnville campus. Tigard’s will be Dec. 12th. We recognize it’s a hard time of year to celebrate when grieving the loss of a loved one. This service will give those who are grieving a place to grieve, acknowledge the pain, to encourage and give hope as well! We will have some resources available, you can bring an ornament to hang on the tree in memory of your loved one. There will be some people to listen to you or share with you some encouragement. There will also be some refreshments. You are invited, or if you know someone who is grieving, invite them to come with you! The times and locations are below. Call your campus if you have any questions.   

Looking forward to a great Christmas season!

Serving together,
