"Guess Who's Coming?" Dinner

%22Guess Who's Coming%22 Dinner.png

Have you ever thought about having folks over for dinner, but just couldn't decide whom to invite? Have you ever looked across the auditorium at church and wondered, “What are their names?” Have you ever thought, “This place is so big, how will I ever get to know anyone?”

Well, we have the answer to all that and more…..

A (casual) dinner party bringing together old friends and new, with a twist----no one knows who's coming until the doorbell rings.

 

How it works:

  • Check your calendar to see if March 3rd is available.  No rain dates, no make ups—this is it.
  • Fill out the registration sheet completely.  We need both hosts and guests to make it work, so fill out whichever (or both) way/s you are willing to participate.
  • Click submit on the webform and your response goes directly to our organizer.
  • On February 25th, you will be emailed your instructions.
  • On Saturday, March 3rd, all guests and hosts will “meet” to enjoy a meal together.  Some will meet for the first time while others may already be long-time friends.  The mystery (and fun) is in not knowing until the doorbell rings who will be gathering around the table together

Follow this link to the registration form and more details! We can't wait to see where you will show up!

Soap for Riverbend Prison

Northside has participated for several years in collecting items for Riverbend Prison. This year we will again be collecting double bars of soap. Double bars is a package of 2 bars of soap. Discount stores like Dollar Tree or Dollar General will often have a double pack for $1. Due to allergies to strong scents and sensitive skin, we have been asked not to purchase Irish Spring soap. Soap can be placed in the bins in the foyer. Our goal is to collect 1,000 double bars by November 26th.

Trail Life Registration is Open

Trail Life USA is a Christian Outdoor adventure program that emphasizes and teaches Biblical moral values. The program is unapologetically Christian while focusing on outdoor adventure, character, and leadership development for young boys ages from kindergarten to 24 years. Trail Life is a program focused on turning boys into godly men. The organization’s firm conviction is that this can only be done by allowing a boy the opportunity to interact, work with, and be mentored by and with other Christian men. Trail Life places special emphasis on building the relationship between boys and their fathers or mentors, so adult men joining the troop is highly encouraged.

Trail Life operates under the principle of shared leadership, which seeks to involve others in the process. Therefore, our troop will be operated by several volunteers — initially within the Northside church, but, hopefully, it will eventually include others within our community. While adults can and should advise, counsel, make suggestions to youth leaders, and provide oversight to those young men designated as youth leaders, the youth will eventually be allowed to plan, organize, make decisions, and be the primary leaders of smaller groups within the troop.

If you are interested in participation as either a child or adult, please sign up on the bulletin board at Northside or by sending an email to David Perry.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Who doesn't love a good mystery? Here at Northside, we are cooking up our own version of "Fellowship Mystery." Are you curious yet?

Here's how it works. First, you must decide if prefer being a guest or a host.  Being a guest is simple. Sign up, be willing to bring a side dish or two, work up an appetite, and show up at the address given to you. Being a host requires a little more effort. You agree to host a meal in your home for a set number of guests, say 8. Then you wait and see who shows up at the door. It's all great fun and a wonderful way to get to know others in our church family.

Registration ends February 16th...so don't be late!

A few important details:

  • If you commit to come, PLEASE COME! We don't want our hosts and hostesses to prepare for a full house and then get a bunch of no-shows!
  • Respect your host's time and don't wear out your welcome.
  • Guests will be given directions from the church building to their dinner destination, what to bring and what time to arrive. You'll also get an emergency contact number for emergencies only.
  • Hosts will be given the number of guests to expect and information about food allergies.
