The End


We all love a great story. Whether it’s between the pages of a novel or displayed on the big screen, we all want the same thing, for the characters we have come to love to live happily ever after. Neal Nelson shared this thought during his recent message in our Think to Change series, [BELIEVE]-The End. Sharing from 1 Thessalonians …

Sermon Recap – A Control Freak’s Cure


Many of us, including Jeff, may label ourselves a control freak. Jeff defines a control freak as a person whose behavior indicates a powerful need to control people or circumstances in everyday matters (see: Webster’s definition).

For the Love of Money: Reflection


It’s all about perspective. As part of Northstar’s For The Love of Money series, Associate Pastor, Neal Nelson opened his message by inviting us to take a player’s perspective versus a spectator’s perspective to God’s word. If we do, we will: Wonder why we may be tempted to trust anything other than our Heavenly Father. Be excited about opportunities to …

A Life of Joyful Obedience


Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength! – Nehemiah 8:10, NLT A life of joyful obedience. This is a statement I have heard our pastor, Jeff Noble, make during some of his sermons. I’ve scribbled these words down on my blue Northstar bulletin many times. The other day, I came across one of …
