Our regular services have concluded. Our lay-led summer services will begin on July 19. Services are held at 10:30 a.m., with coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Visitors are always welcome. Here is a list of the schedule and service leaders:
Our Favorite Poetry
Participants are invited to read their favorite poems, plus any they may have written themselves. Everything from Walt Whitman to Robert Frost to Mary Oliver and anything else. If you’re not into reading poetry, you’re welcome to just come and listen. Most of the hour will be the same format as a regular service.
Consciously and subconsciously our minds, bodies, and spirits work to get to a place of ease. This is what spirituality and religion comes down to at a basic level. It defines our search for comfort in our lives. Join us for an exploration of “Ease.”
This service could easily be a follow-up to Brian’s previous week’s theme. The first 15 minutes will follow the regular routine. The last 45 minutes or so will include a brief introduction and then the silent meditation itself, followed by optional sharing. Even if meditation is new to you, you will find this process easy, enjoyable, and perhaps revealing.
More Than Meets the Eye
This service will explore various encounters Amy has had with animals, both wild and domestic; and offer some layman’s speculations about the connections between human and animal consciousness.
Note: The first service of the 2015-’16 church year will be held on Sunday, September 13.

In our year-end service this Sunday, June 21, we will review the special, highly unique year we have had here at Northshore Church. There will be a recognition of new members and a presentation of the annual Frank Farnum Award. The service and the year will conclude with a flower-sharing ceremony. Please bring a at least one flower to church for flower sharing.
The service leader will be Tracee Kneeland.
The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Visitors are always welcome.
Following the service there will be an important congregational meeting. The Ministerial Search Committee has completed its work. Please come this Sunday for our final service, some exciting news, and an important vote.
This will mark our final regular service of the 2014-’15 church year. Our summer services will begin on July 19.

There is a lot of talk about spirituality these days, and some people say they are spiritual but not religious. But can we really “be spiritual”?
Please join us this Sunday, May 3, for a service titled “A Spirituality Called Wisdom.” Our guest speakers will be Michelle Walsh and Clyde Grubbs.
Perhaps spirituality is an activity, or, as the wise ones might say, a practice. Maybe we grow “in the spirit” by practicing and practicing again. And many people find that the way to grow “in the spirit” is in community, in the company of others who share the journey. Let us explore the spirituality called wisdom.
The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Religious education classes are offered, and visitors are always welcome.
The Northshore Church annual meeting will begin following the service.
