Greeters training
Sabbath, Sept. 22 after potluck

Happy 75th Anniversary, Ken and May Rowland!
Ken and May Rowland celebrate 75 years of marriage this September. They have been such a blessing and inspiration to all of us here at NCSDA, and we want to show them how much we love them and appreciate their amazing example of love and commitment.

Family Promise – Homeless for a Night
Sabbath and Sunday, Sept. 23 and 24, 6 p.m. to 7 a.m., Salem Lutheran Church parking lot

Family Promise has extended programs and is now better able to place participants into housing. Approximately one family a week now is able to get a home and there is a waiting list to enter the program! Of coursee, this takes funding. Our church's goal is $5,000 in order to help match the $80,000 goal set by Family Promise. Envelopes are available in the foyer. Checks must be made out to Family Promise, NOT NCSDA.
