Weekly Update 10.28.20
There’s a lot going on in the life of Northwest Christian Church. Despite Covid, wind, wildfires—NCC continues to serve our mighty God and His people in and outside of the church.
I want to give a shoutout to our Sister churches in Gates and Mill City. They of course were impacted much more by the wildfires than we were. I was up there Tuesday with some of our team. They are doing a phenomenal job of serving the whole Santiam Canyon region. The response is inspiring on the part of the church and others who are helping people recover. I’m thankful for so many of you who have prayed, given time and resources as well! We are taking another truckload up this Friday. Beds and furniture. It’s going to be a long recovery.
Also this Saturday from 5:30 – 7:30pm is our Trunk or Treat at ALL of our campuses! We want to give the children of our church and community some normalcy in the world that is been so chaotic for them. Many things are different. Many things are canceled. So we’re going to try something for kids!
Trunk or Treat is in each campus parking lots. Cars will be spread out, decorated, we are collecting store bought, wrapped candy to give out that night—lots of candy needed! Kids will still have a reason to dress up as a superhero or something. We get to ooh and awe over the kids costumes, and having some good times. We will hand the kids the candy—so no reaching in bags etc. We do want to give out lots of candy. If you can bring some candy this week and drop off at each campus—would be great. If you want to get in on some of the fun and use your car’s trunk—let us know!
We will be inside for this coming Sunday. And plan to be for the future—unless a heat wave comes in. Hope you’ll join us. Don’t forget to Fall back this Sunday. We gain an hour of sleep—so no sleeping during the sermon! Worship is currently modified. As is our children’s programming. As is our midweek activities. And if you can’t join us in person—make sure you join our online campus—NCC Live! Go to our website, our YouTube channel or Facebook live!
Again, NCC has not shut down. We continue to connect, grow, and serve, inside and outside of the church—along this 99 corridor, and beyond!
So if you’re not engaged—give us a call or email—we need you! And quite frankly you need to be engaged for your sake as well..
As always if you need something, or if you know someone who needs something please do not hesitate to connect with us.
Remember we’re in this together!
See you soon!
