The Weekly Guide | 11.27.22
We are SO happy to have you here this week!
While you’re with us today, we hope you’ll notice something about us: We are passionate about Jesus and about our goal of bringing Him to every home in the Northeast corner of San Antonio. Because of this, we are working on being people who look and act like Him in everything we do – from the Greeters who welcomed you, to our NextGen volunteers who are planning events and programming with your kids in mind, to teach them about Jesus. In everything we do, we try to point right back to Him.
Annual Business Meeting
12/4 | 6-8p | Worship Center
Northeast’s Annual Business Meeting will be held on the evening of Sunday, 12/4 from 6-8p in the Worship Center. After being presented by church leaders, registered members will have opportunities to vote on bylaws changes, deacon and elder candidates, and the 2023 Northeast budget. Attendance is open to all—these important decisions help the church run!
Gifts of Hope
Gifts Due 12/4 | Christmas Tree in Lobby | Worship Center
‘Tis the season of giving, and this year Northeast has our “Gifts of Hope” tree in the lobby with sponsorships for Boysville Children’s Home and Sodalis Assisted Living. To sponsor someone, go to the tree, pick a tag, sign it out at the table, and get the info sheet. You can also talk to our volunteers about additional service opportunities at the sign-out table. Gifts are due back by noon on 12/4 but can be delivered before then, either under the lobby Christmas tree or at the Chapel office. Help us bring the hope of the Gospel with acts of kindness this Christmas!
This Christmas season, we will be reading The Promised One devotional. We have copies available for distribution: you can pick up a hard copy at Northeast on Sunday by going to the Connecting Point. Or, you can download a PDF copy by clicking on the link below.
12/4 | During Services | Worship Center
Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your savior? Make a public statement of faith by getting baptized! We know baptism doesn’t save souls, but it shows others Whose we are and Whom we serve. Say “yes” to Jesus by celebrating your faith through baptism!
Our last baptisms for 2022 are on 12/4 during both services.
Christmas Eve Services
12/24 | 3, 4:15, & 5:30p | Worship Center
We have three identical Christmas Eve services this year, with activities available for Birth-Kinder at the 3p service only. Who are the people you have been investing in this year? Will you invite them?

Serve at Northeast
We want you to serve with us, here at Northeast! If you are not plugged in serving anywhere, please consider serving with our KidsMin or Tech & Production teams, as we need help with both right now. God has called us to serve for His glory and the good of our Church, so please consider stepping up to help fill these needs.
(*Note: No experience required for tech: we teach you everything! )
Partner Through Giving
As Christ followers at Northeast, we are committed to giving our time, talents, and treasure for the benefit of the church and the growth of the kingdom. This is not only what we are called to do, but it is also something that we are to do with an attitude that honors God.
We are only able to do the ministry that we do because of the partnership and generous gifts from people like you. Thank you in advance for your heart and your partnership with us, here at Northeast.

LifeGroups are the primary point of connection and spiritual transformation at Northeast. Our Leaders are people who want to create an environment where others can connect with each other and grow deeper roots of faith. Does this sound like you? Fill out the form below to learn more.
