New Horizons Church Newsletter
We are making progress!!
WE HIT OUR CARPETING GOAL!!
Thanks to God's provision through YOU, our carpeting has been paid for!
While it is in the process of being installed we are looking forward to the next step of continuing to care for God's Church, that step will be the lighting.
The cost of new Lighting will be $994. GIFTS OF ANY SIZE will be so helpful. Thank you for helping to make these things happen!
We would love for you to look for a way to give BEYOND your tithe and regular offering to get these important projects completed.
Mark donations for the BUILDING FUND, whether giving on-line using our Faithlife Giving, by check, or by dropping off a bar of gold!
While the Flooring and lights are getting taken care of, Cliff Buchner is rallying to fix the exterior basement stairwell and entrance. JUST A LOT OF STUFF TO KEEP UP ON!!! Thank you for supporting the efforts to make NHCC's facility better.
A Note from Pastor Jerry!
This Sunday we're stepping away from the parables of Jesus for just a moment and taking a look at what "anchors" us in this crazy tumultuous life! Hebrews 6:19-20 will be our target verses.
Too much negativity without bolstering our hope is toxic to our journey with Jesus. Brokenness of relationships, of hearts, of minds, losses of all kinds, uncertainty, and all the anxiety of contradicting information has crippled our world, the church, and even our very lives. Unable to move forward, being stuck, is a problem all around us. Owner of the Springport Rd Biggby Coffee is having to adjust her open hours due to not having enough staff to cover all shifts--a worry and uncertainty for her life. Certainly not the same as what you might be dealing with, but valid just the same. Places where we had no thought of problems or issues seem to now be everywhere and in every situation.
Let's grab on to the hope of eternity in this temporal space and place! How we do that is regaining the focus of our faith and the assurance that is brought through Jesus.
See ya Sunday!
