Northwoods Calendar Digital News Letter

We minister to those strangers in our midst and to those around the world. We place great value on giving not only money to support ministry to others, but on giving our time and ourselves individually and corporately to service. Be a part of God’s work in the world!

Sleep In Heavenly Peace

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is an organization that has the goal of ensuring every child has a bed to sleep on. There are thousands of children in Houston who do not have a proper bed to sleep on & they are either sleeping on a floor or a couch. A child deserves a good night’s sleep, so they can play and learn at their best. One of our Northwoods Members, Gary Akin, is looking to start a chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace in Houston and to do that he needs $7,500 for his first build day. After the mission’s committee met with Gary, we decided to have a Tool Drive to help get SHP started as soon as possible. Here is where we need your help; we will be having a tool drive and fundraiser May 13th – May 27th. You can donate tools at the Narthex or back the journey service. The tools are needed to help build and put together the beds. We want to help make the goal of having a Sleep in Heavenly Peace chapter in Houston by July of this year a reality. Every child deserves a bed!” - Click here for more information.

Golden Gathering

Each month here at Northwoods, our Golden Gathering volunteers throw a theme party with fun, music, entertainment, and lunch. Enjoy the morning and befriend our "Care Partners" who have early dementia/Alzheimer's. By volunteering, you also give their caregivers some precious free time for themselves. Golden Gathering is held the 3rd Thursday of every month and volunteers are asked to be there from 9:30am-1:30pm. Sign up with Beth Kauffman 281-444-8861;
