Operation Homebound Drivers Needed
You might be wondering...why are we asking for more drivers? The wonderful folks who responded a bit ago have either been assigned permanent routes or the days the are free don't correspond to program needs and they have agreed to be substitute drivers. So...we have Monday and Wednesday covered for the second route; just need Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
We need 2 people per day who can complete the program application and a background check.
Please search your hearts and also ask your neighbors and friends.
This route goes around and across 466 A. If you have been over there recently I'm sure you have seen the number of homes that have been built or will be built. This means OHB numbers will increase and that, of course, means the need for additional drivers.
Come and ride along on Route 10; our current #10 drivers would welcome you and answer any questions you may have.
Call me and a ride-along can be arranged.

North Lake Presbyterian Church
Senior Pastor Search Process
September/October 2014 Update
As we move forward, we want to keep you informed about our process and our progress. Our goal is to provide a monthly update on the North Lake web site and the monthly newsletter and/or church bulletin.
On October 8, 2014, the PNC had their first meeting with the Presbytery Liaison, Berry Long, and the Executive Presbyter, Rev Dr. Daniel Williams. The members of the committee elected the following officers: Dr. Bob Hazlett, Chairperson, Sue Kirkpatrick, Vice Chairperson, and Rose Gorman, Corresponding Secretary. The PNC met two additional times in October and the discussions centered around qualifications desired for a new Senior Pastor and the development of a survey to be sent to the membership for their input. The committee is meeting weekly at the present.
The primary goals in November are: 1) develop a survey in order to gather information from the congregation; 2) plan two informational meetings for the congregation for early December; 3) work on the Ministry Information Form (the “MIF” is used to describe the church and ministry to potential Sr. Pastor candidates; and, 4) continue to work with the Presbytery.
The PNC plans to meet weekly and the committee asks for your continuing prayers.
Childcare provided at all services.
