Join us for Sunday Service on Zoom
In this moment in history, we call on our creative spirit in unique and essential ways. Whether we think of ourselves as artist or audience, we can all tap into the creative forces in our own life for vision as well as resilience.

Second Hour: Small Group Discussion
Our administrator Jamie Thompson will facilitate small group conversations centered around questions related to that Sunday’s themes using Zoom Breakout Rooms. (No special skills required to use Breakout Rooms.)
Share the Plate Sunday
It’s the third Sunday of the month and we will be sharing our plate collections with a local nonprofit organization. This month donations will be given to the Montgomery County Women’s Center. The Center has been assisting in the effort to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault in Montgomery County for over 30 years. In addition to their many other programs, the Center operates a women and children shelter that houses up to 75 persons, and the Something Special Resale Shop on I-45 next to Sam’s. All proceeds go to the center’s operations. There has been a 40% increase in the number of calls to the Center for help during the past 9 months. Donations are needed more than ever.
To donate by text, send a text to 832-637-6562 with your donation amount and “STP”. Donations can also be made online using the Share the Plate designation
Stay After Service for Conversation and Community
This fall, Northwoods will be offering regular after-service programming designed to meet the needs of different folks in the congregation:
First Sundays: Our excellent and longstanding Adult Forum will continue meeting at 12:15 and offering opportunities for learning, conversation and connection. Right now, Adult Forum is exploring the theme of “Coping.”
Second Sundays: Parents with young kids in the home and RE program are invited to join Gay Lynn Pierce, Coordinator of Religious Education, for conversation and support. Each month, Gay Lynn will introduce the coming month’s take-home materials for families as well. This group will begin at 11:45.
Third Sundays: Our administrator Jamie Thompson will facilitate small group conversations centered around questions related to that Sunday’s themes using Zoom Breakout Rooms. (No special skills required to use Breakout Rooms.)
Fourth Sundays: Leaders of our SEE Justice programs will facilitate learning and conversation around the various social justice issues close to our hearts, including immigration, police reform, reproductive justice, mass incarceration, ecological justice, and so much more, at 1:30 p.m.
These groups will meet in the “digital sanctuary,” using the same Zoom link we use for worship: https://zoom.us/my/northwoodsuu. (Meeting ID: 766 833 5778).
