Special offerings for the month of August will be sent to the Rochester District Visiting Nurse Association. This is the organization that makes it possible for many of our Northwood neighbors to remain in the comfort of their own homes and receive the medical care that they need. What a welcome relief to people who would otherwise be required to enter a nursing home! Their Support Services Program also offers Personal Care Service Providers, Homemakers, Staff Companions and In Home Providers. For further information call 332-1133 or visit www.yourvna.org. As always, the Missions Committee thanks you! (Please note: when making checks to support Mission giving, make them payable to NCC, with Mission in the Memo section, so that the funds can be properly tracked and then allocated to that Mission.)

After dinner there will be a show featuring Becky Rule and Maren Tirabassi. Tickets are $10.00 and the proceeds will go to fix the church’s front porch.

Our children are tending a garden in summer Sunday School. We still need adults and youth to help our children. There will be a sign-up outside of Fellowship Hall for you to sign up for one Sunday during the summer to help. We also need someone who will put up a fence around the garden to keep our neighborly critters from eating all the fruits of the children’s work.
Centering prayer is silent and peaceful…where we offer our time as a love offering to God. It allows us to invite God’s presence and open ourselves to grow in relationship with God. The Centering prayer group meets Wednesday mornings at 8:00am at 11 Blaisdell Dr. The prayer time lasts 30 minutes. Anyone is welcome. If you have questions or need directions, speak with Mary Ann Lippincott 942.6070.
