Label everything. Make sure any reheating or baking instructions are included. Adding your name is helpful too.

This Week's Offering

Our offering focus this week is local church ministries. The Lincoln Northside and Holland churches are grateful for your faithful participation each week. We remain committed to service, and to proclaiming the praises of the One who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. Thank you for considering ways to support and be involved with this mission.

You may participate financially by giving to/through Lincoln Northside or Holland this week. Your tithe goes to support the work of the Lord across the conference (including your church), and your offering goes wherever you designate within the local church. As we trust in God our provider, may He continue to add rich blessings and multiply our gifts for the furthering of the gospel.

All listed times are Central Time.

Northside Gathering Reminder

Based on the updated Directed Health Measures announced by our local health officials for the Lincoln-Lancaster area, we are asking all those attending any indoor gatherings on the Northside campus to continue to plan on the appropriate use of a face mask. You can view the announcement from the link above for additional details. Northside is participating in this community effort as outlined in that document. Thank you for your help, and we hope to have you worship the Lord with us.


Connect Card

One of the ways we are hoping to stay in touch with you is through our online connect card. If you would like to get more involved at Northside or Holland or have a ministry suggestion for either church, there is a place on the card to indicate that, along with other ways that our community of faith can be your community too. Each filled-out card goes directly to Pastor Deneil by email, and based on your indicated preference, he will either pass it along to relevant ministry leaders or follow up with you confidentially. Either way, we will do our best to respond to you directly. Please do not journey alone.

Holland Church Bible Study

You are invited to join us on Tuesday evenings at the Holland Church for a bible study at 7:00 pm.

Continuing next Monday, we are studying through the Gospel According to Luke. We are reading and studying together verse by verse and cover as much as we can in an hour each week. Consider joining us on Zoom this coming Monday at 7:00 pm. The previous link should take you to the study, or you can type this code in to join the meeting: 956 8186 3121
