This Sunday, Sept. 13th, we will have two services at 9:00am and 10:30am. There will be nursery & toddler care and children’s programming for all ages during the second service. If you prefer, you may attend the first service and sit together as a family. Please take note that the service will be live streamed only during the 9:00am service. It will be posted on Face Book if you prefer to watch the service at a later time.
**Please note: NLF continues to strive to help limit the further spread of Covid-19 by practicing social distancing in our building and asking individuals to wear masks when social distancing cannot be maintained. **
NLF Pumpkin Patch:
Calling all NLF folks! As the weather is starting to change so is the outside decor! Our Connect – Preteens will be having a “pumpkin patch” here at the church for the next couple of Sundays. As you are looking forward to planning and decorating around your homes, please consider taking a look at our pumpkins to fulfill your needs. The Connect Pumpkin Patch has outdoor fall decor available for you to purchase by donation. They are raising funds to be able to “adopt some kids/families” at Christmas. Thank you for considering us for your pumpkin decor!
Preteen Event this Sunday, September 13th:
This Sunday, Connect Preteens are invited to stay after church for lunch and fun! They will be roasting hot dogs over a fire, fishing in the church pond, and playing games outside.

Organize Your Health Information:
Do You Have A list of Medications? Insurance Numbers? Health Conditions? Emergency Contacts? and Doctors? Tired of writing this information every time you visit a healthcare provider?

There is no charge for this assistance; just a simple questionnaire to fill out and Carol will do the rest. For more information, please call, text, or e-mail Carol Miller.
Operation Christmas Child:
Beginning this Sunday, Sept. 13th, NLF will have 100 Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes in the foyer. Please consider picking up one or more boxes to fill for children around the world. The fliers explain how and with what to fill these shoe boxes. The final date to return these boxes is Sunday, November 15th. Let’s spread God’s love to children who are needy.

Women’s Bible Studies Relaunch:
We are happy to announce that our women’s Bible Studies will resume this fall. Bible study will begin on Monday, September 21st. There will be a morning session (Gideon, Your Weakness, God’s Strength: Priscilla Shirer) from 9:45-11:45am and an evening session (20:20 Seen, Chosen, Sent: Christine Caine) from 6:30-8:00pm. The plan is to restart the Bible studies on Lesson 1 since only two weeks were completed before the pandemic began. If you already have a Bible study book and want to be a part of the study, mark your calendar and join us on Monday, September 21st. If you do not have a book and wish to be part of the Bible study, please contact Mary Bultemeier.
Our youth (7th-12th grade) are meeting on Wednesday evenings at the church from 6:30-8:30pm. The students are served a meal at 6:30, followed by their ministry time from 7-8:30pm. Pastor Jordan is in need of a few more small group leaders for the student ministry. If you have a heart to invest in teens lives or would like more information, please contact Jordan Pearson.
Now that we are using the church building on a regular basis, we are ready to start up our cleaning teams again. We are in need of several more volunteers to serve on the cleaning teams. If you would be willing to serve in this capacity, please contact our facility manager, Barry Wiard.
