Sunday Morning Church
It was great to hear from many of you who appreciated the service we put together and emailed out last Sunday. Thanks for your encouragement and for giving worship in your own 'bubble' a go. We will continue to email each Sunday morning with resources and videos to lead households in various aspects of worshiping at home. We will worship, open scripture, and share reflections, testimonies and pray. Please keep an eye on your inbox on Sunday morning and also check out our Northpoint Whanau facebook group for specific resourcing for those with children in Pods, Sprouts, Forest and The Fort. We trust that you'll continue to engage with us and make the most of this opportunity to grow faith together with those we do life together with every day.
Join in with us for Sunday Night Prayer -7:30-8:30pm. We are going to be doing this through zoom and our Elder Glen Daken will be facilitating this prayer meeting. We are going to be spending this prayer time focusing on praying for the Pastoral Search Committee as they seek Gods guidance in Pastoral Selection.

Encouragements to share
What scriptures are sustaining you at the moment? Where are you seeing God at work? What are you clinging to in this time where so much has changed? If you'd be happy to provide a 2-3 minute video of encouragement/scripture/reflection we'd love that. If you're not able to video and are happy to email something through we'd love that too - but video would be ideal because we'd love to see your face. Please reply to this email to let us know if you're interested
Do you know of anyone in our Northpoint Whanau who is having any tech issues or who has not been able to access these emails or facebook posts?
