This is a busy weekend at Northside Community Church!


Great Commission Sunday is this Sunday, May 21!  Would you prayerfully consider giving to Christian & Missionary Alliance missionaries through this special offering? 

Also in celebration of Great Commission Sunday we have the privilege of getting to know Joyce Johns!  Come join us Saturday evening at 5 PM for a bbq.  Bring side dishes and dessert to share.

The Latino Education Summit is Sunday, May 21.  Let’s be praying for those who are serving here this weekend.



¨ Service Saturday is coming June 10th!  Sign up Sunday after the service at the back of the sanctuary.


¨ One of the projects we will be working on is hygiene kits for people at the Lighthouse Mission.  We will be collecting items in the basket in the foyer marked Lighthouse Mission kits.  These items will be placed in a zip lock bag so we are hoping for “travel size”  If you would prefer to donate $$, then we can purchase the items we are lacking in to fill the kits.  Mark the offering “Hygiene Kits”.


We need the following items:  Wet wipes – small packages, Hand Sanitizer – small bottles, Toothbrush/Toothpaste; at the dollar store they sell travel size kits that include a toothbrush, small toothpaste and toothbrush cover, Dental Floss, Nail Clippers, Lotion (travel size), any hotel lotion, Soap, Shampoo.



¨ The Northwest Washington Fair is excited to have us back to have a Sensory Space again this year August 14-19!  The Fair is so happy with this service they have offered a special deal to anyone at Northside.  As always, volunteers will get free tickets to the fair.  In addition they have offered us this deal:
