¨ Our Christmas offering this year will be for the Bethesda Alliance Church in Puerto Rico. They experienced significant damage to their building from the hurricane. The roof of the building was completely destroyed and the rest of the structure and furnishings experienced water damage. We are joining with our   sister C&MA churches in Ferndale and Blaine on this project. Northside’s Governing Board has pledged a matching gift of $2500. Make any checks payable to “Northside” and indicate “Bethseda” on the memo line of your check or  offering envelope.  Donations can be put in the regular offering all of December, and a special offering will be taken on December 24th. 

¨ Many of our church family make special year-end gifts to support the ministries of Northside. Because all gifts are subject to IRS deadlines and rules, please   remember that these gifts must be received by Sunday, December 31st to be included in your 2017 donation statement from Northside Community Church. Thank you for your giving during 2017.
