This Week’s Sermon:
“Deep Roots: How We Live”

English class continues to go well. We have been running 8-10 students each week. Our teaching staff has been doing a great job. Please be praying for the students, and for opportunities to share the Gospel with them. And if you are interested in helping with the class, you will have opportunity to “train in” this summer. One of the ways we try to help students is by assisting them in finding apartments when needed. If you hear of any apartments that are available now or in the next month or two, please pass that information on to me or Lisa in the office. Thanks! Pastor Pat

Compassion Sunday - Next Sunday, April 25th
Next week, during our morning worship, Roberta C. will be highlighting the ministry of Compassion International and the opportunities available to help children living in poverty. Learn how you can share the love of Christ with those in need!

Baptism Service - Sunday, May 9th
On May 9, we will conduct believer’s baptism as part of the Sunday morning worship. Several youth intend to be baptized that morning. If you would also like to be baptized at that time, please contact Pastor Pat. We would love to include you in the baptism that morning. If you have put your trust in Christ, believer’s baptism is a way to declare your faith and give public testimony of your personal commitment to following Him!

Camp Lebanon Women’s Retreat
September 24 – 26
While we are enjoying spring, it is also the time to register for the Fall Women’s Retreat at Camp Lebanon! Due to state restrictions, space is limited and the staff at Camp has asked churches to reserve their spots now. (They are over 60% booked already. Please also note that face masks will be required.)

Sign up at the info table in the entry so we can let Camp Lebanon know how many will be attending from NLC. The deadline to sign up is next Sunday, April 25. See Heidi Smith if you have questions.

We are so thankful for spring that we are eager to mow the lawn! If you can help with the lawn care here at church, please talk with Daryl Robertson. (With enough helpers, you would end up mowing about once per month.) Thanks!

The Refuge youth group meets Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.

Young Adult Fellowship will meet this evening at 6:30.

Sunday Morning Prayer Time - 8:40 a.m.
Please join us in the adult Sunday school room each week as we gather to pray for one another, our communities, and our nation!
