Blessing Bag Summer Donation Mission
For our summer ‘donation’ mission, see our newsletter for a list of items you can gather and bring to church for blessing bags for the homeless (leave in the old vestry on the seats under the tables). After we fill the bags we will divide them between us and distribute.
The missions this summer is to create and give out blessing bags. While you can do this at home alone (and report back during church!) I’m asking for you to bring some contents over the next month and a half for a blessing bag filling extravaganza at the end of September. What is a blessing bag? It is a gallon-size Ziploc® bag that contain snacks, travel-size toiletries, socks, a bottle of water, grooming supplies and other useful items.

2022 Epiphany Arts Festival
Northwood Congregational Church
Epiphany Arts Festival January 6 through February 27
Northwood Congregational Church
The Northwood Congregational Church Epiphany Arts Festival for 2022 is back by popular demand. Again this year, due to COVID safety concerns, we will be celebrating it online.
The Epiphany Arts visual and performance arts festival will be displayed on Facebook and on our website http://northwoodcongregationalchurch.blogspot.com/p/2020-epiphany-arts-festival.html
Epiphany is also known as Three Kings Day and commemorates the day that the three kings arrived at the birthplace of baby Jesus after having followed the star in the Eastern sky for many days. They showered the infant Jesus with the gifts they had bought, gold and frankincense and myrrh and so we, to honor the occasion and celebrate the season of Epiphany, will showcase the artistic gifts of our church family including but not limited to: photographs, sculpture, paintings, poetry, jewelry, drawings, wood work, pottery, calligraphy, needlework, knitting, quilting etc.
To enhance the Epiphany Arts Festival, the church is also accepting videos in place of the annual coffee house. Church family and friends can share their gifts of music and writing by recording those performances and sending a video.
Please send all photos or art work and videos of songs or spoken performances to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email the photos. The videos will need to be on youtube in order to share with others.
The deadline for your submissions will be January 19.
