Habitat for Humanity

Time: 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Spring has sprung, which means it’s time to once again look forward to fellowship and contribution for Northminster’s participation in a Habitat For Humanity build day.

Our day of volunteer workday is scheduled for Saturday, April 28th, and generally is approximately 4-5 hours with lunch included. We get to work with and meet the future homeowner, engage with others in the community, and have some fun! Each year, our assignment is different. This year, we will be installing siding. Don’t worry, there are always plenty of “experts” on hand to guide our hands! This is one of Pastor Ruth’s favorite activities, so come join her and the Mission Team for a worthwhile activity.

We will be signing up in the Gathering Place on Sundays, April 15 and 22. And feel free to sign up family and friends to join us. Contact Mission Team member, Bo Walker, with questions: or (317) 507-8453.

Offering of Letters

Time: 10:00 am – 12:30 pm

Location: Northminster Presbyterian Church

A catastrophic automobile accident, a disabled child with life-long medical needs, downsizing that leads to unemployment, a continuing medication that costs 3 figures per dosage, a 100-year flood that washes away the family home, an unexpected cut to Medicare, a mother with two minimum wage jobs who still lives under the poverty line. These events are financially devastating and can lead to food insecurity for family members, neighbors across the street, rural Hoosiers and thousands of others in these United States. No one is immune to unexpected, unplanned, unanticipated tragedy.

But we are not without recourse. Our government, which is us, is capable of helping victims in their time of need. In fact, God has issued this very mandate. “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me... Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” God is not unequivocal. As Christians, we are called to help others. And so, for such a time as this, when our political leaders are indecisive and often seem indifferent or unaware to the challenges facing so many of us, we need to be God’s hands and feet.

Join us on May 6 at 10 am or noon, to write letters to our legislators to urge them to maintain, if not increase, SNAP (food aid to children, the elderly, the disabled), WIC (for low income women and young  children), and other programs for the most at risk members of our  society. “What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love  mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Tannahill Weavers Concert

Time: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Location: Northminster Presbyterian Church

The Tannahill  Weavers in Concert –
Friday, May 18, 7 pm 
The award-winning Scottish band, the Tannahill Weavers, will be in concert at Northminster Presbyterian Church 7:00, Friday, May 18, as part of the church’s Sound & Spirit series.  The band makes a rare stop in Indianapolis as part of their 50th anniversary tour.  Throughout the years, the Tannahill Weavers have been trailblazers for Scottish music, and their tight harmonies and inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes.  Since their first visit to the United States in 1981, the band’s unique combination of traditional melodies on pipes, flute and fiddle, driving rhythms on guitar and bouzouki, and powerful three and four part vocal harmonies have taken the musical community by storm.  As Garrison Keillor, the former host of “Prairie Home Companion” remarked, “These guys are a bunch of heroes every time they go on tour in the States.”  

All are welcome to hear this incredible band as they bring Celtic music from Scotland to Indiana.  From reflective ballads to foot stomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material the Tannahill Weavers perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.   As with all Sound & Spirit events, the concert is free and child care is provided.
