Living the Acts 1:8 Challenge

Announcements

 Thank You: We would like to thank all the teachers, helpers, and supporters of VBS this past week.  If you have dropped by, come in to help, brought things for our crafts, or kept us in your prayers this week to help make our VBS a success, we thank you. We would also like to thank you for sending your children to participate in VBS.  They were a joy for us to have in class this week, and they made our week a success.
 
Tissues Needed / Mission Opportunity:  The Jesus Lovers  (3 yr.– 2nd gr.) and Get-Along Gang (3rd – 5th gr.) are in need of boxes of tissues to deliver to Heritage House for their Mission Project each month.  If you are out and about, pick up an extra box or two, and throw it in the big trash can in the foyer to help them out. They will be doing their Mission project the first Sunday of each month immediately following the morning worship service.  Their next mission opportunity to deliver tissues will be August 6, 2017.

We Now Have Online Giving!  The church has the availability for you to give online through our website, www.northgatebaptistchurch.com.  Click on the button in the middle of the home page, and it will allow you to use your debit and credit cards to make your offering.  You can also choose from different things to donate to, such as Regular Budget, Annie Armstrong, Lottie Moon, etc.  So if you miss a Sunday, don’t worry - you can just go online and put in your offering without missing a beat.  It will also keep track of your donations for the end of the year tax time as well, so don’t worry about that either.  Try it out and see what you think, and let us know.
