Library Information: At the present time, please feel free to take books out of the Library (they do not have to be checked out). Return them when you are finished; placing them on the Library desk. The books will be returned to the shelves by a Librarian.
Fall Women’s Bible Study: This is a great opportunity to join with the other women at North Street to study God’s Word without the restriction of a weekly meeting time. Each participant will have their own ‘Love God Greatly’ Study Journal (cost $12.00) that includes plenty of room to journal your daily SOAP reflections as you dive deeper into God’s Word individually! There will also be a private group on Facebook as an optional way to share with other participants and build community while we are apart. We are not planning to meet in person or via zoom, so connecting online or in casual conversation will be extra special. Please signup at ‘The Signup Station’ in the Narthex or contact Nakisha DeJong (283.3804 or email@example.com) by October 11. Note: there is also a companion Study Journal designed for children ages 5 and older if you are interested in doing this study as a family.
Upcoming Elections: With the upcoming election approaching, please remember that the deadline to register to vote by mail or online is October 19. If anyone needs assistance in obtaining an absentee ballot, or if you have any questions about the upcoming election, you may contact Sheryl VandenHeuvel (1.616.834.7746).
