Why I Love Serving at Northstar: Megan Evans


This entry is part 2 of 7 in the series Why I Love Serving at Northstar

Five years ago.. If you would have asked me five years ago what my five year plan was, I would have told you a whole list of things that I hoped and dreamed for myself because, well, I am a planner. At times, I have even been a dreamer. Ironically enough, one of the things that would not have been on …

In this Member Spotlight, we are introducing Stephanie Lomeli. She attended our Discovering Northstar Dinner in October and turned in her member covenant that evening. Tell us about yourself.

Curve Balls and Unmet Expectations – God Is At Work


This past Sunday, we kicked off one of my favorite traditions at Northstar, December Nights. I can’t quite put my finger on why I love this tradition so much, but there is just something different, something special about meeting in the evening for the entire month of December. Maybe it is because I get to sleep in on Sunday mornings …

Carol Lee Donuts, #dontgobeaster, and Northstar’s Impact


Being only a few days away from our 15 year Homecoming and Groundbreaking ceremony, I have caught myself on more than one occasion feeling nostalgic. John and I have been coming to Northstar since 2014, and even as I write that, it feels surreal to know that Northstar has been our church home for over four years.  And what an …

Jesus Was A Fixer Upper Before Being A Fixer Upper Was Cool


I love a good fixer upper project, especially one done around my house. There is just something so satisfying about being able to take a piece of furniture, a room, or a living space and bring it back to life with a little, or a lot, of work.  Somehow, in moving out on my own and acquiring family furniture, I …

The Greatest Introduction of All Time


This past Sunday was a review of the first couple of messages in the Created & Called series and wrapped up the section on Genesis chapter 1. For the past several weeks, we have been looking at the biblical teaching on creation. This has always been an uncomfortable topic for me. I have wrestled with it, made peace with it, …
