Bulletin Editor: This month marks 20 years of service for Carol Redder, as our Bulletin Editor.

We Believe Training Night: A Two Hour Teaching on “How to Understand, Honor and Love Your Neighbor In The Midst of Specific Disagreement With The Mind and Heart of Christ”. You’ve seen the yard signs, you’ve heard the positions in the media, you’ve struggled with aspects yourself, so what is a faithful Christian response to the current convictions and values of our day? North Street desires to train Christians in biblical, clear, charitable, and helpful thinking to better engage, serve, love, and honor those who hold a different worldview. If we truly love our neighbors, one aspect of that love will be the explanation and offer of a Christ-centered view on the most pressing issues of the day. You will be trained in a Christ-centered understanding in at least the following topics from the popular yard signs around town:
1. Science is Real / Climate Change Concerns
2. Black Lives Matter
3. Love Is Love / LGBTQIA+
4. Feminism Is For Everyone /
Women’s Rights Are Human Rights
5. No Human Being is Illegal
This event will be held on Thursday, August 26, from 7:00PM – 9:00PM, in The Grove. There is no need to sign up and there is no cost involved. Please join us if you are able.
