NKPC Youth Crew Announcements
Art Prize Trip -October 2nd, after coffee hour. We will be eating Little Caesars pizza at church and then carpooling to downtown GR and touring Art Prize. Let us know if there is any artwork you think we should see!!
Youth Crew Tea Party -November 13th, during coffee hour. Join us as we dress up, and have tea and biscuits and play rounds and rounds of tea dueling! Please remember to try and talk in a British accent too, if you can't that's fine, but you should try!
If you have any ideas for the NKPC Youth Crew, then please let us know and maybe that idea will become a reality!
Fishing Contest! Win $50 and honor and glory! This contest is open to everyone and runs until October 14th. Just take a picture of your catch next to a tape measure or on a scale and submit the picture to the church. We will give it a percentage score of the Michigan state record for that type. All fish must be caught in 2016 in Michigan. The highest scoring fish wins! See poster for details.
Our Child Protection Standard "It is strongly recommended that all teens and adults from NKPC volunteering as leaders regularly in nursery, Sunday School, Youth Crew, and Munchkins have training in Child Protection". To meet this standard, Pastor Karen will offer two sessions of a one hour class (only one is required); Oct. 5 at 7:00PM and Oct. 10 at 10AM. If you are active as a child/youth leader or helper, please attend one of these. If you have received training elsewhere, please let us know. Contact Pastor Karen or Sue Rabick for questions.
Bells Kickoff Meeting: The Bell choir will start on Tuesday, October 4th at 6:30 pm, Stop by if interested! All ages welcome.
Pastor Karen can be reached via email at Pastor.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 616-644-5122. Her office hours are Monday - Wednesday 9:30 - 3 pm
Breakfast, Lunch or Coffee? Do you eat breakfast or lunch, or drink coffee or tea? Pastor Karen would love to get to know you better and would like to have lunch or coffee with you! She will be happy to travel to you or even to bring you some lunch right to you at your place of employment. Please connect with Pastor Karen to schedule.
Sunday Morning Discussion Group will begin the new season on October 2 using a highly recommended study guide provided by Presbytery. Living the Questions 2.0 is an open-minded alternative to studies that does not attempt to give participants all the answers and instead strives to create an environment where participants can interact with one another in exploring what's next for Christianity. Featuring thirty acclaimed scholars, theologians and other experts, each discussion will begin with a brief overview, watch/listen to a video, and then discuss the focus of the lesson. The material can be discussed in the order we want, and for as long as we want, and there are no right answers or exams. Each session is self-contained and there is no homework, so one can come when they can and not be worried about being behind. Everyone who likes to talk and discuss is welcome!
NKPC’s Fall/Winter preparation and Cleanup: The time to prepare our church for fall and winter is almost here. The event is scheduled for October 1st, from 9 AM till Noon. A task list will be provided. Coffee and drinks and some edibles will be provided. As usual, there will be inside tasks and outside tasks identified so you have options. A significant focus this year will be cleaning the classroom in the loft area over the narthex which needs our attention. Let's make it a welcoming place for our youth to meet! Any questions, contact anyone on the Facilities and Stewardship Committee.
Men's Fellowship: The next meeting of the Men’s Fellowship will begin at 8:30 AM on October 15, 2016, and is expected to end by 10 AM. Join us for breakfast, which last time was scrambled eggs, link sausage, mixed fruit, small strudels and muffins, and coffee. We are hoping to have a guest speaker from Dėgagė Ministries for the October meeting. Come and enjoy the fellowship and build relationships!
Marketing Team: A Church Logo? A New Tagline? Eye Catching Landscape? A New Front Sign? Maybe a name change??? Session is asking for interested people to be on the church marketing team to lead us as we discern how to best let people know about what God is doing here among us! Let an elder or the pastor know about your interest.
