15 years in borrowed and rented space. We are literally days away from identifying a contractor to build our first ministry center. While we've been waiting a long time for this season in the history of our church, it is surreal to finally be "here." This week, we are hosting a Q&A meeting with interested contractors. I'll [...]

Since the beginning of the Immeasurably More campaign, we've been amazed at the regular, proportional gifts of our members and attenders.

We continue to be amazed and grateful by how our members and guests are giving to our Immeasurably More campaign. In 2017 so far, the building fund has received $457,168! This has come from over 90 different families/individuals. We are thankful for how God is working through regular, generous gifts. Since 2015, over 150 people have [...]

Proper Rations at Proper Times

When it comes to Immeasurably More and our preparation for Northstar’s future Ministry Center, I would think Northstar members and friends have questions that are echoing around in their heads as we walk through this season of waiting.
