Sunday Morning Worship @ 10:30 a.m.

Worship at Northminster is an uplifting, traditional service, with hymns, recitations and a meaningful sermon from Pastor Bob.  However, we don’t believe in church in a bubble – worship and the message are always crafted in ways that are meant to equip us to live and grow in today’s world.

We also believe that children have a special place in God’s eyes, so each service includes a Children’s Message presented with an eye to what it means to be a modern kid.

We are truly gifted with beautiful music and we are blessed with a talented congregation who share their talents now and then.

Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of every month and all are welcome to partake.

After worship we gather for coffee, cookies and fellowship. It’s a wonderful, informal and delicious way to get to know each other.

Come and Join Us!

The Sermon

What does the Bible have to do with my daily life?  How can I take the Message from each Sunday and live it? These are some of the BIG questions we deal with each Sunday.

The sermon will comfort, challenge, encourage, and hopefully inspire you to a deeper faith and discipleship.

Music

We have many talented musicians at Northminster, both staff and volunteers.

Our adult choir sings every Sunday throughout the program year, and a hand bell choir plays periodically. Although choir is officially “on vacation” during the summer months, special music enhances to our weekly worship.

A newly formed children’s choir delights us with their talents as they perform the third Sunday of each month.

If you are interested in the music ministry at Northminster, please contact the office.

Communion

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of the month and on special days such as Easter and Christmas Eve. We are following in the tradition of the early church when we affirm three primal material elements of life — water, bread and wine — as the primary symbols of offering life to God. Being washed with the water of baptism, we receive new life in Christ. In eating the bread and drinking the cup offered by God, our memory of the promises is made present by the Holy Spirit.

It’s our way of reaffirming our dedication to peace, unity and our own personal faith.

Nursery

We offer a nursery for infants through kindergartners from 9:00 a.m. till 11:45 a.m. every Sunday morning.

Children of all ages are always welcome in worship.  We provide children’s bulletins and activity packs to keep those little hands and minds busy.

Children are a blessing and we feel blessed to have them with us in worship.

Baptism

In the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) we baptize believers and infants alike, acknowledging that God baptizes those whom he has called. It is our inclusion in the covenant of grace, incorporation into the life of Christ, and anointing with the gifts of the Spirit—we have countless reasons to give God thanks and praise. As Jesus said, “Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38). Filled with the never-failing grace of Jesus Christ poured out for us, our hearts overflow with gratitude and joy, spilling out into the world in lives of service and love for God and neighbor.

Anyone wishing to be baptized is invited to visit with the pastor.  you may contact Teri in the office at 816-453-2545.
