J.O.Y. Bicycle Ride — Sunday, July 17, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. We will meet at North Kent Presbyterian Church at 12:00 p.m. We will drive to Broadway Street Trailhead and bicycle Laketon Trail to Muskegon Lakeshore Trail, Muskegon State Park and back. There will be a potluck picnic after the ride. Please join us for a fun time of fellowship, food, and exercise. If you have questions, please call the church office at (616) 866-2234. N.K.P.C. members and friends of all ages are invited.
Flowers today are from Jim and Stella Brown in celebration of their 40th wedding anniversary today.
Music Today. We welcome Noreen Betteridge to North Kent Presbyterian Church today. She will be offering special music in our morning service. The Grahams have known Noreen through volunteering at Ronald McDonald House of Western Michigan.
Special Music A sign-up sheet has been placed on the narthex bulletin board for Special Music in worship services this summer. Gather your solo, duet, or group—vocal, instrumental, or drama and sign up soon. Start practicing. Enjoy the fellowship with each other. The dates are fast being filled. For coordinating purposes, be sure to contact the church office at (616) 866-2234.
Save the Date! The next church garage sale is in the planning stages. The work crew is looking at the last week of September. Start gathering your treasure, but don’t drop off until the crew is ready for it. More to come.
C.E. for Youth will meet on Wednesday, July 20 at 7 pm with Pastor Karen joining in on the planning.
The pitcher and the plate on display on the communion table, as well as the baptismal bowl are on loan to NKPC from Pastor Karen. If you have ideas for or want to create more visual interest in our worship space, please contact the Facilities Committee or chat with Pastor Karen. (PS "Watch" for a new sanctuary clock!)
