Believers Baptism - June 6, 1:15pm Adults, youth and kids, if you’d like to take the step of obe- dience to declare your faith and commit your life to Christ through believers baptism, talk to any of the pastors. The next baptism will be at Otsego Park in the Mississippi River.

Celebration Picnic & Baptism On the weekend of June 5-6, we will celebrate all the wonderful things that God has done through NorthRidge over the past year. There will be a time of appreciating leaders, thankingone another, andhearingmanywonderful stories that ultimately glorify our good God. It will all culminate at a picnic at Otsego Park starting at noon on Sunday. At the picnic we will share lunch together, fellowship in the beautiful setting, and witness baptisms in the Mississippi River, as many will publicly proclaim their faith in Jesus. What better reason to celebrate than that!? Our meal of oven fried chicken, mac and cheese, broccoli salad, fresh fruit salad, pickles, desserts, and bottled water will be provided by Center Cut. Gluten free options will be available. RSVP REQUIRED - Since this is a catered event this year, we are requesting a RSVP response from those that wish to attend the picnic so we can be sure we have enough food for everyone. Please go to and click on News and Events menu, then the event image to RSVP to attend.

Beyond the Bacon - May 8, 7:30-10:00am Have you ever come across a Bible passage that didn’t seem to make sense? How about wondering how someone else came up with such a profound insight in a passage you’ve read a hundred times? Guess you need a degree in ancient languages and the latest app for Biblical interpretation, huh? Guess again! At this Beyond the Bacon event, we will learn and practice a method that requires little more than dependence on the Holy Spirit (of course), and an honest effort. Bring a Bible (app), a dad, a son, a friend, and a mask. Food and fellowship provided.
