Youth Sunday June 10th

What’s happening this Sunday?
 
This Sunday, June 10th, will be “Youth Sunday.” Students played a significant role in planning this week’s service. You will see:
 
– Students leading worship
– Students helping with tech
– Students reading scripture
– Students serving as ushers
– A recognition of graduates
 
Why are students so involved in this week’s service?
 
Our students are playing a front-and-center role this week as we prepare to send them off on several summer trips. The High School students are going on their Challenge and Light Rider trips; the Junior High students are going to the Twin Cities on their BUMP trip.
 
This is the final leg of their fundraising journey to make those trips a reality. In order to help their trips get fully funded, this final fundraising opportunity will include:
 
– A freewill offering during this Sunday’s service
– YOUTHWORKS, in which students sign up to take on jobs for members of the congregation in exchange for donations to summer trips
 
How can I help?
 
Thank you for your contributions to the 2018 student trips up to this point; the pancake breakfast and women’s event blessed our students mightily! We are already $5000 toward our $7000 fundraising goal. Since this is our last fundraising event before the 2018 trips, we are looking to raise $2000 this Sunday. There are two ways you can help us make the push for the final $2000 this Sunday:
 
– Bring money or a check to contribute to Sunday’s freewill offering. That freewill offering will go to the scholarship fund, which benefits scholarship needs in the church (including student trips).
– See a student in the foyer after the service to see what help they are offering through YOUTHWORKS. Consider signing up to have a high school student mow your lawn, clean your gutters, teach your kid guitar, etc.
 
Thank you!
 
Thank you for your love and support for our students, who pour out so much to bless the rest of us in the congregation. Let’s make the most of this opportunity to bless them back.


Men’s Connection

Beginning on Saturday, June 23rd, Pastor Craig with Neal Siegel will be leading a ministry for men from 7:30 to 9:00 am. Men of all ages from North Sub, Adat Hatikvah, friends, and neighbors are welcome.

As men, we tend to find ourselves alone. We weren’t meant to be alone. We were meant to be in community with others… especially other men. As men, we need the strength, support, encouragement, and prodding of other men so that we can live our lives fully in the Lord. The vision of the MEN’S CONNECTION is that NO MAN STANDS ALONE. Our mission is DISCIPLING, MENTORING, and SERVING.

The Men’s Connection will meet in the Club 45 Room downstairs on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. A light breakfast and coffee will be served. Each meeting will feature a brief devotional time followed by a time of connecting in the Word, discussion, and prayer together.

This Saturday devotional and discussion time begins with the first of a 5-part series entitled, “Leading Well.” As men, we’ll look together at what it means to be called by God to be kingdom leaders.

 
If you have questions, please call the office, contact Pastor Craig (North Sub) and/or Neal Siegel (Adat).


DivorceCare

If you or someone you know is experiencing separation or divorce, DivorceCare is a support group that can help. You do not have to go through this alone. This is a place where you can hear valuable information from a non-denominational Christian perspective about ways to heal from the hurt of divorce.  The 13 week session began on June 5 and will meet every Tues from 6:30-8:30pm in the Hospitality Room. There is a one time fee of $25 to purchase materials.  For more information or to register, contact Karen at ksantelik@northsub.com or 847-580-5757.


First Wednesdays

Joint Prayer Service with Adat Hatikvah

 

On that last night of his earthly life to the Father, Jesus offered up to God his high priestly prayer. In it he prayed, 20 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, SO THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE SENT ME. John 17:20-21   

 

Since partnering together, Rabbi Jake and Pastor Craig have noticed how true this actually is.  They have continued to ask the Lord to show us ways to increase partnering with each others so that the world may believe in Jesus, the Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach. Once per month on the FIRST WEDNESDAY, from 7PM to 8 PM, we will gather together as congregations to mutually submit ourselves before the Lord, to offer up our hearts to the Lord praying for our congregations… for the local community at-large… and for individual requests.  They believe that as a result, God’s Spirit will be present in a unique way that will grow in us and through us, generating unity and a greater effectiveness in our witness.  Come join in the adventure and see what God does with us, together.

Praying With Paul

 

Lent is a time of reflection, a time of contemplation. Many Christians fast during Lent to increase their dependence on God during the weeks leading up to Easter. This dependence is a distinguishing mark of a believer in Christ, especially in a culture that so values independence.
