11-03-19 @North Heartland: Gettin' Weird / TIME CHANGE

Good afternoon dear family and friends of NHCC,

First things first - if you recently received an email from "me" asking you to contact me because I need you to help me with something ... or asking you to buy Ebay gift cards, please ignore it. Apparently, our email has been hacked. Also, notice that those emails came from pastor.northheartland@gmail.com. Anything you receive from me will always be from pastor@northheartland.org.

In other news, this Sunday we all get an extra hour of sleep as Daylight Savings Time comes to an end. We also get to continue in our series More Than a Building. The topic this week is Gettin' Weird because that's how people sometimes view the church and church people: weird.

Truth is, there are some things that happen at church that don't happen anywhere else which can seem kind of weird if you don't understand them; things like communion and baptism and worship.

So, if you (or someone you know who isn't involved in a church) have ever wondered what those things are all about and why we do them and why we do them differently than a lot of other churches (as in "why don't we baptize infants?" "why do we allow anyone to receive communion?") then you for sure want to be here or watching online.

Also, this Sunday's service will feature some great music plus a hilarious drama, both of which happen near the beginning, so you'll want to be here on time.

See you then!

Rick
