In an attempt to clarify as well as to better prepare our church in matters related to the pandemic, the elders have put together a podcast. Please give this a listen. Its only a few minutes in length and will hopefully be of encouragement to you.
As you may remember, this Sunday we launch our Shore Lunch Ministry. Listen to a brief podcast that Pastor Duncan guarantees will answer any questions and put your mind at ease as we all do this NEW thing together. If you would rather read the manuscript for the podcast, you may find it here: http://www.nshorechurch.com/2021/12/09/shore-lunch-manuscript/
Thanks for listening and we look forward to seeing you this Sunday, Lord, willing, at SHORE LUNCH!
Pastor Duncan continues to talk about race and racism from a biblical perspective, specifically asking the question, "As a believer, how am I supposed to think about all of this?" He helps us see that by merely following the world's thinking (liberal or conservative) we are not adopting a biblical or helpful understanding of this crucial topic we see in every newscast."
Pastor Duncan has recorded another podcast for North Shore Church. This one deals with one of the most important social issues of our day and something our church is doing about it. Please listen to this before Sunday if possible. Thanks.
Pastor Duncan has recorded another “Words of Hope” podcast for North Shore Church. This podcast is an explanation of North Shore’s policy regarding the wearing of face masks in church. This represents the elders’ thinking behind and rationale for mandating the wearing of face masks. Please listen and if you have any questions, please contact one of the elders. Thank you.
All of us are deeply grieved by what has been happening in our nation's cities. How are we to think about this in a manner consistent with Scripture? Today's installment of "Words of Hope" gives us some important truths in that direction.
Reopening a church after months of online church can be exciting, but it can also cause division in the body if our hearts aren't in the right place. By God's grace, we want to avoid that and today's podcast has some wise and hopeful words as to how to move forward in Christ-honoring unity, if not in unanimity.
With so many people in the church facing many serious trials and experiencing the strong negative emotions that come from them, it's good that the Bible gives us clear guidance about how we can express our strong feelings. Listen for this on today's Words of Hope.
The current pandemic—with its possible end-times significance--has caused many in the church to think more seriously about whether they are ready for the return of Christ. This can be a good thing. In today’s “Word of Hope” are words of encouragement and sanity as it relates to how we can use this current pandemic to help make us more ready for the end.
Believers can live with the assurance that God will, without fail, bring much good from this current trial. That is the message of not just one verse in the bible, but the entire Bible. Listen in for today's Words of Hope.
With the enormous flow of information about COVID 19, (much of it obviously bad) how is the believer to keep a biblical perspective on things and walk in joy, not discouragement? King David speaks to just this kind of question on today’s “Words of Hope.”
Knowing that we should redeem our time during this pandemic and doing that are two different things. What words of hope are there for people who have NOT redeemed this opportunity from God or have perhaps found it to be a time of darkness and failure?
Join Pastor Duncan in a mini series of devotions called "Words of Hope" that will be released in the time we are unable to gather as a church body.
In these times of uncertainty, fear can easily overwhelm us. Today's "Words of Hope" helps us know how to best conquer this fear using David's words from Psalm 56.
