Hello members and friends of the Lincoln Northside and Holland Churches!

Happy Thanksgiving! I pray that this season of gratitude has brought to mind the bountiful blessings that God continues to pour out from "the windows of heaven."
As you read this week's updates, it is my hope that you will be motivated to participate in various options of worship and fellowship with our church community.

Service Opportunity

In last week's sermon entitled "The Great Divide," we were invited to reflect on the eternal significance of bridging gaps of service in this life, and of pushing against the indifferent and self-sufficient tendency of the last-day church by turning our missional focus toward the man laid at our gate (metaphor from the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16).

I received some information by email this week that I felt impressed to share with you regarding upcoming refugee resettlements that are expected for our general area. In some ways, the gap could not be wider between us and those described in the email, and as a result, the easiest approach may very well be indifference. However if you are willing to join me in prayerfully exploring service opportunities for this mission field, then I invite you to take a moment to click and read this very brief document.

If there are additional community outreach efforts that the Lord is laying on your heart, I would love to hear about those as well! Send an email to

"God in his providence has brought men to our very doors and thrust them, as it were, into our arms, that they might learn the truth, and be qualified to do a work we could not do in getting the light before men of other tongues" (Ellen G. White, The Review and Herald, October 29, 1914).

You are invited to join us for worship at Lincoln Northside or Holland SDA Church on Sabbath mornings during the month of December as we celebrate the coming of the Messiah with a fresh look at some of the prophecies pointing toward and enriching our understanding of it.
  • Part 1 - December 4 at Holland
  • Part 1 - December 11 at Northside
  • Part 2 - December 18 at Holland and Northside
  • Part 3 - December 25 at Holland and Northside
You are certainly welcome to join us for the entire month in either congregation, as there will be great worship opportunities happening throughout.

Christmas Program at Holland

Mark your calendars for December 11! That Sabbath evening (time to be announced next week, but close to sundown) we will be having a Christmas program with music and other items, followed by supper and other social activities. All are invited!

If you would like to submit a prayer request, you may do so here.

This Week's Offering

Our offering focus this week is Kansas-Nebraska Conference Advance. Offerings you make to Conference Advance go to support our conference scholarship fund, evangelism across our territory, youth and young adult ministries, and our Outlook magazine.

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
