This Week at Northside
Pleasure is Meaningless
Many people live with the mantra, "If it feels good, do it." While Solomon would have agreed with that thought, he also says, Ecclesiastes 2 that "pleasure is meaningless." How can it be that we were created by God with the ability to experience pleasure and satisfaction only to be told by the second wisest man in history that it's meaningless? Maybe there's more to the story.
Join us this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:45 am, as we continue our series journeying through the Book of Ecclesiastes!

Wear Red This Sunday
This Sunday, churches across the world will be remembering Pentecost - the giving of the Holy Spirit following Christ's ascension. Red symbolizes the "tongues of fire" which rested on those who were gathered at the time of Pentecost. We're encouraging everyone to wear something RED this Sunday to worship.
