January Clips

  • Congratulations to Mike & Loren Wisniewski on the birth of their son Gabriel Quinn on December 13!
  • We celebrate the dedication of children to God by three families in our December 11 worship service. Those dedicated are Luke Charles Hammagren (parents Erik & Becca), Samuel Biorn Hoffman (parents Ben & Jenny), and Elijah Nicolaas Volkert (parents Nick & Michelle).
  • In addition to using our Care Fund to meet the needs of individuals both within and outside our congregation, our Northwest Hills Elders Team recently distributed a special gift of $1,500 to the Northwest Community Baptist Association to provide for the special financial needs of pastors and their families who serve in smaller under-funded churches in the Pacific Northwest.
  • Our Worship Center and Christmas tree were beautifully decorated for the Christmas season by Amber Diviney, Selena Diviney, Carlie Ness, Linda Pozzesi, and Martha Wagner.
  • Pianists Carlie Ness and Peter Wong opened our Christmas season with music in the Lobby on Sunday, December 4, and Julie Davis directed the string ensemble that played in the Lobby on Sundays, December 11 and 18.
  • During the Christmas season our congregation worked with ministry partners, Love INC and Options Pregnancy Resource Center, to encourage and assist needy families in our community. Members of our church family provided and delivered 115 Christmas Giving Tree gifts and eight Christmas food boxes to 17 families in the Corvallis area. Northwest Hills volunteer staff member Jack Glubrecht once again directed the Giving Tree and Food Box ministry. The 28 Northwest Hills helpers were organized by coordinators Chelsea Henson, Sara Lawrence, Lisa Stewart, Tricia Tucker, and Laurel Wong.
