We are looking for a core group of 6-12 individuals to provide primary support for the refugee family we hope to receive by the end of the year. Every congregant is invited to give this unique opportunity prayerful consideration. If you would like to help, contact Tom Stayton or Victor Perkins for further details.

We go out into our community in service to connect with our neighborhoods and mission partners. A brief worship service is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. Please note that we will have no worship service at 11:00 am, as we will worship through our serving that day.

Please remember the teachers and students of School 55 as you are shopping in the next few weeks. Some requested items are: spiral notebooks, construction paper, copier paper, crayons, rulers, glue sticks, Kleenex, pencils and pens. Starting in July, put your contributions in the yellow bin in the Gathering Place, and the Deacons will deliver them to the school. Thank you!

Along with St. Luke’s United Methodist, 2nd Presbyterian Church and other local churches, we support and participate in the Washington Township’s Back to School Extravaganza.

Northminster collects clothing from local school’s Lost and Founds and then washes it and sorts it by size. Our contribution to BTSE is to distribute this cleaned used clothing as well as new underwear and jeans that we purchase. The goal for 2017 is to serve 1200 children and provide them with the clothes, shoes and school supplies they need.
