Sunday, July 26

In the Message interpretation of the Bible, Romans 8:39 reads: “I’m absolutely convinced that nothing…absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love.” (emphasis added)

Paul wrote his letter to the church at Rome in a difficult time of political upheaval. The community of Christians were facing some intense challenges. Paul encourages the church then – and now – to maintain hope.

We are living in a challenging time, as well. But we must maintain hope that – no matter what we are going through – God’s love is steadfast.

Participate in worship on Sunday, July 26 for Tonja’s sermon entitled “Absolutely Convinced!”, based on Romans 8:26-39, The MessageWorship will be available on our YouTube channel beginning at 10:30AM.

From the Board of Trustees:

The Trustees have been moving forward with our plans for North Christian Church to become a new community hub of activity despite this pandemic. Rooms have been cleaned out, and new space sharers have started moving in. Nearly all of the congregation’s possessions have been moved to the auditorium. The Scouts have collected all of their materials, and our new storage room is ready to be filled. It’s now time to “clean house”.
To that end, there will be 3 days of sorting and boxing and storing on the following days: Wednesday, July 29; Friday, July 31; and Wednesday, August 5 all from 9am to 4pm with a lunch break in the middle. If you want to be involved in deciding what stays and what goes, then you should join us, starting on the 29th. After August 5th, all materials deemed to not be kept and not in storage will be disposed of appropriately. Face shields and masks as well as gloves will be provided.

Please contact Mark Matheny at or you can call him at 812-371-7108 to RSVP so we can make sure there is enough PPE for everyone helping.
