A Message from Pastor Paul
New Prayer Focus
Our main focus in August will be Prayer.We will continue in our Journey to be what Jesus desires us to be and that is a House of Prayer. A Church committed to Prayer!
We will have a Prayer Service every Wednesday Night in August @ 6:30 P.M.
On Sunday August 7 we will have our first-ever Prayer & Fasting Service at 11AM.
We are looking for Prayer Warriors to pray specific prayers for 30 minutes a day. Signup sheet is on the bulletin board at the church.
God is up to something amazing at North Glen Community Church, so we need to pause to get direction and hear from God. If we don’t focus on Prayer we will miss God’s Best. Prayer is the engine that drives the Church. So let’s get excited as we enter into the throne of Grace and experience the presence of God!
Book of the Month
Our Book of the Month for August will be Proverbs. To help us in our quest for wisdom as we seek God’s will for our lives and our Church. We will read, study, meditate & apply 1 chapter of Proverbs each day. 31 days in August, 31 Proverbs. Let’s get some wisdom!
Another area in which God is speaking to me is Leadership, as everything rises and falls on Leadership.
We will have an opportunity to go to a Global Leadership Conference August 11 & 12 from 9:30-5:30. Some of the speakers will be Bill Hybels, John Maxwell, and T.D. Jakes to name just a few.
The conference will be streamed to the Abundant Life Church in Glen Burnie, MD. You are presented with a lot of opportunities to sharpen your skills and develop the people you lead. The Summit is a proven tool that produces compelling outcomes for leaders who attend. To learn more about the conference and possible interest,visithttp://www.willowcreek.com/events/leadership/index.html. Registration is available on the site.
The Leadership Team & The Ministry Leaders of North Glen will be going through a study of the 5 Levels of Leadership by John Maxwell. We will also open this up for future Leaders.
Exciting times await us as we draw near to Jesus. He will shower us with His Blessings!
Be Blessed in Jesus!

Children’s Ministry Update.
A message from Kim Gayleard
Hey North Glen!
I can hardly believe I am closing in to the end of my second year at North Glen as the Children’s Director. Wow, time flies when you’re having fun! I am personally happy to see the children grow in their walk with the Lord. I was talking on the phone the other day to one of our North Glen ladies and I told her we are, “A work in progress!” Just like our own lives, we too are a work in progress! There is always room to grow, love, and learn!
Thank you to everyone that gave items for, Operation Christmas Child! We will be collecting again between October and November!
***STUDENT REGISTRATION IS A MUST!***
ALL current students must be registered by September 1, 2016, in order to attend Children’s Church and other children’s activities. Why? Well, it is a safety issue. The registration form provides us with important information about your child in the event of an emergency. To date we have one completed form. You can go to our church website, Facebook page, or get a paper copy from me to fill out. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Mission Outreach Opportunities
Our next outreach is on August 6th at 10:00 and lasts until 12:00. The homeless ministry leaves from the church to deliver food and clothing to the people in Baltimore and Anne Arundel County.
As we meet the physical needs (socks, summer clothes, blankets, shoes, disposable bags to carry their clothing) of the homeless with the love of Jesus, we have the opportunity to bring the Good News to meet their spiritual health.
Sandwiches are prepared on Fridays at my home in Dundalk.
