A Ministry Opportunity

Hello Everyone!

I want to let you know about a great volunteer opportunity coming up that might be for you or someone you know! Are you an experienced aesthetician? Would you like to donate your time and services to bless others?

Imagine Spa is a ministry to mothers of children with special needs who rarely get a chance to rest and be pampered. At Imagine Spa the moms are invited to come to the church for professional spa treatments, as well as a gourmet dinner, and a chance to meet other moms.

The Spa is currently looking for a volunteer to coordinate aestheticians, and help with set up and planning. If you love to use your skills in in this area to bless others, please contact us at women@northview.org for more info!

Merry Christmas from Snowy Northview!

It’s the last day before Christmas Holidays! Woo Hoo!

I thought I would take the opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas, trusting that God will meet with you as you celebrate the birth of Jesus, “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29).
