Announcements for Sunday, May 12, 2019

Happy Mother’s Day: “Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise.” Proverbs 31:31

Summer Retreat: How EASY it is to jump from one distraction to the next and end up with the scraps of our attention leftover to give. It’s a CHALLENGE to “Be An Ever-Present, Devoted Person.” This is the theme for our summer retreat, which will be held on June 21-23 at Judson University in Elgin. The Registration Form is available in the Lobby at the Welcome Booth – please fill out and return to Wei-Lin Koo. (Early Bird Registration continues through May 19.) We hope for a great turnout this summer!

Gardeners wanted for the Church Landscaping Project: This past fall, incorporating input from church members and children’s ministry, a landscape plan was prepared for the circular island in front of the church parking lot.  The plan included planting new serviceberry trees, a washed gravel rain garden, spring bulbs, and children’s planting area in front.  We invite further participation from any of our church ministry programs or members interested in contributing time for planting, watering or helping maintain the garden, and be part of the Garden Team!  We aim to make it a fun way to serve the church.  A meeting has been scheduled for Saturday 5/25 at 9am.  Please contact Nelson Chueng for more details.  

Summer of Prayer: We’d like to take advantage of this summer to pursue new avenues of prayer. If you’d like to help decide on when, where, and various formats for prayer, please contact Pastor Mike by May  26.
Sundays at Ten: Here are the upcoming topics for our weekly, large-group discussion time:

  • Today: Counseling/Therapy
  • 5/19: Men’s Breakfast Topics
  • 5/26: Women’s Breakfast Topics

Come join us for lively and biblically grounded discussion over some coffee and an occasional surprise treat from the bakery.

Mother/Daughter Fellowship:  We will meet next Sunday May 19, 12:30-2:00. Please pack a lunch to eat at church (the room is TBD). We will begin with a short devotional activity based upon the book “Lies Girls Believe”. Then the daughters can enjoy a game time together, while the mothers have a time of fellowship and prayer. We will loosely base our prayer format similar to “Moms in Prayer”, which Amy will introduce. If any questions, please contact Amy Lam.

Benevolence Fund: Our financial assistance fund for church members has been used and now needs to be replenished. If you are led to contribute, please write “Benevolence Fund” in the memo of your check. Praise God for the gracious ways He meets our needs!

Lunch Fellowship May 26: We plan to gather for lunch fellowship at Potbelly Sandwich Shop in Deerfield Square on May 26. From 12:30 – 2:30pm, Pot Belly will also donate 20% of the total bill to NSCCC. Just say, “We’re with the church,” when you order.
