Can You Believe it’s May?

May is here! This is going to be one of the most exciting months of May in our history.

May 6this our Above and Beyond celebration. It is truly a miracle what the Lord has done through our Above and Beyond capital fundraising campaign. We look forward to the completion of our educational facility. This building will open up huge opportunities for our fellowship to be more effective in the disciple making and evangelistic process. May the 6th is the date for this special event. Please invite someone who needs to know the goodness of the Lord to be your guest. We will have lunch together and celebrate together.

The evening of the 6th our own Tory Nickerson will be preaching and our Children’s Choirs will sing for their annual Children’s Choir Celebration. These precious children are the future of our church.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear of Tory’s work. Tory, Gilianny and Noah are a sweet and precious family whom we have prayed for and loved for many years.  We will take a special love offering for Tory’s ministry at this service.  Please give generously in this offering knowing that these funds will touch those around the world.

May the 13th is Mother’s Day! What a privilege to honor our moms on this day. No evening activities on this day.

May 20, 2012 in the PM Service we will show the movie Courageous. There are many of you who have not seen this fabulous movie.  We have prepared an evening of excitement as we watch this movie together.  Courageous is a powerful movie of challenge for dads and families to follow the Lord’s will.  It is an inspirational film that will bless you.  We look forward to having a wonderful time together watching the movie Courageous on Sunday night, May the 20th.

May 27, 2012 is our annual Beach Baptism at Frank Butler Park East at Crescent Beach at 5:30pm. We already have a number of our people who want to be baptized.  If you need to be baptized contact the church office to be included in the Beach Baptism.  Last year 75 people joined us at the beach to witness this great event.

The Peru mission trip takes place May 7 – May 20, 2012. We are so proud of this group of college students led by our college director, Robert Privette, as they make an impact for Christ in Peru.  Let’s keep them bathed in prayer.

Summer is here! Here are some highlights you can look forward to.  Summer nights at North Central begins with the movie Courageous and continues all the way through the summer with special events on particular Sunday nights.  You can find this list elsewhere in our Lifeline.  Aviation Adventures is our fabulous Wednesday night program for children.  This compliments our normal youth activities and Conversational English ministries, in addition to our 4:00pm Prayer Meeting and our 5:00pm Family Supper.  Don’t miss Wednesday nights at North Central this summer.

We’re building in the summer towards our fabulous Vacation Bible School entitled “Amazing Wonders Aviation” July 30 – August 3, 2012. VBS Family night is Sunday night, August the 5th; it will be a wonderful, wonderful time.

Congratulations to Christie Harrod on her 1st Anniversary as our Office Assistant. She does an outstanding job carrying out many ministry tasks here at North Central. Take an opportunity to express your appreciation for her dedicated service.

Dave Wright has faithfully worked with our set up team for 3 years. He recently obtained other work and has had to limit his work at North Central to the other many ways he has helped us as a volunteer! We will miss seeing him set up but will pray that the Lord will bless him in his new endeavors! Please express to Dave our heartfelt thanks for all he does!

It is truly a joy to Pastor such a wonderful fellowship. I’ll see you Sunday. You are a blessing to me.

Pastor Calvin.
