Good Morning Church Family!

Northwood Berleley

Hello Northwood Baptist Berkeley Church Family!

This past Sunday was a historic day in the life of our congregation.  On Celebration Sunday our congregation enthusiastically affirmed joining the Northwood Family of Churches!!  We build on the rich legacy of Gethsemane Baptist Church but start an exciting new chapter in the life of our congregation.  We will always celebrate the heritage of Gethsemane as we literally have an entire building named the Gethsemane Chapel Building, but we move forward in faith as we radically cooperate in family of churches for Kingdom impact.  We had 95 in attendance this past week with us in worship!  Thank you, Jeff Hartman, for the yummy barbeque, thank you tech team for putting up with a lot of videos, thank you Dana Bowers for putting flowers in our pots outside, and thank you for everyone else who pitched in to make Sunday such a special day.   

Joining the Family of Churches gives us a new church name and new bylaws.  Please be patient with us as we continue to transition.  In the days ahead we will be implementing a lot of changes.  The Pastor/Elders of the various Northwood Family of Churches are seeking alignment with branding, church signs, doors, logos, and website appearance.  Our congregation will need to add a Lay Pastor/Elder and we will need to fill committee/ministry team roles.  My goal is to have a person serve on no more than two committees/ministry teams. To make that happen we may have to shift around current roles and ask people not currently involved to prayerfully consider becoming involved.  Please be in prayer as we make this continued transition.



Don’t forget to sign-up to be an adult volunteer for Vacation Bible School.  There is a Vacation Bible School training this Sunday after the worship service at 11:00 a.m..  

Sunday evening activities resume this Sunday night.  Discipleship and the Crave Student Ministry take place at 6:00 p.m.  

Grace to you,
Pastor Jay
