This week we will begin our study, "Unraveled: Seeking God When Our Plans Fall Apart." Tonja will lead our focus on Biblical characters that encountered difficult moments in their lives and how God helped each of them through those times.

There is no book to buy or advance reading that needs to be done. However, a journal that functions much like a devotional will accompany the study. 

Contact Tonja if you would like a copy of the journal for the study or to use as your personal devotional.

North Christian Church has made a commitment to serve God, to grow in our personal spiritual journeys, to spread a message of love and welcome to disenfranchised persons in the Columbus community, and to share our one-of-a-kind building and grounds with groups and organizations with values that align with ours.    

Since we have been worshipping online, more people have been connecting with us – from around Bartholomew County, and around the country. Each week more persons subscribe to our YouTube channel. We have received words of thanks and appreciation from folks in Indianapolis, Chicago, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and beyond. Folks are expressing joy at finding a congregation that shares their values and touches their hearts. We are spreading a message of hope and love.

This is a great time to consider donating to North Christian Church, to support our mission to spread a message of love and welcome to all God’s children, here in Columbus, and in places we never expected to reach.  

If you are accustomed to giving weekly as the offering plate is passed in worship, send a note to Kim at, and she will be happy to send you offering envelopes to use each week from home. They are pre-addressed and ready to mail.
If you pay your bills online, it’s very convenient to send an electronic donation to the church at the same time. Your bank can help you set up ACH transfers. You can even set it up to send the same amount automatically each month, just as you do with your bills. That way you won’t forget!    
For those with smartphones, Givelify is a really simple and secure app you can download to your phone. Even those who do not have smartphones can use Givelify by clicking the “Give” link on our church website. You’ll have to set up your payment information only once. After that, it is easy to log-in and make a quick donation in minutes. You can even designate your donation to go to different purposes, such as Week of Compassion.  
For those who are financially stable, consider donating a portion – or all – of your stimulus check to the church.
Thank you to each of you for giving generously, so that we can continue to share a message of God’s love for each and all!
