Golden Gathering
Each month here at Northwoods, our Golden Gathering volunteers throw a theme party with fun, music, entertainment, and lunch. Enjoy the morning and befriend our “Care Partners” who have early dementia/Alzheimer’s. By volunteering, you also give their caregivers some precious free time for themselves. Golden Gathering is held the 3rd Thursday of every month and volunteers are asked to be there from 9:30am-1:30pm. Sign up with David Puig  davidpuig@northwoods.org.
 

Hospital Visitation

If you or your family are hospitalized please contact the church.  Our pastors and lay chaplains provide regular hospital visitation.
 

Prayer Chain

Prayer requests can be sent to micah6dash8@comcast.net.  Our prayer chain of over 170 people lift up these requests in prayer.
 

Home Communion

Four times a year, elders go out in pairs to take communion to our members who are not able to attend worship. 
 

Prayer Partners

Members who are going through an ongoing illness or difficult time are assigned a prayer partner who calls regularly and commits to pray for them. 
 

Northwoods Care Meals

In times of illness or crisis, meals are brought to people’s homes.
 

Home Touch

A weekly note, Bible reading and puzzle are sent to members who are homebound.
