This is an update from Helping Hands Ministry.
The Helping Hands committee has been so glad to be able to help several people. Please check the Helping Hands bulletin board behind the "old sanctuary" for new updates weekly.
Ashley Tucker is in need of some maternity clothes.  Size is medium to large.  I bet his is an easy need to meet, if anyone can donate to Ashley, please call her at 601-595-1375- cell or 601-453-5022- home.
Miss. Mary Gray needs transportation to and from her dialysis appointments at Kidney Care. She goes Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9:30am till approximately 3:00pm.  In speaking with Ms. Mary today, she is still trying to get Social Services to help her with transportation, but until it is approved, she still needs our help.   If you could only do it for one time, or even if you can only take her, maybe someone else can pick her up.  Miss Mary would appreciate any help!!    AGAIN, a BIG OLE THANK YOU to all those sweet folks who are helping her out now!!  If you would like to help with this, please contact Ms. Mary at 601-604-6702. (Remember Ms. Mary sits on the front pew, organ side, and loves to get her praise on with music and song).
Erin Vance would like help in providing Christmas gifts and food for her children.  Her son is 6 and daughter is 3.  If you would like to help Erin, please contact her for specific sizes and needs at: 601-506-9997, or speak with someone on the Helping Hands committee, listed at the bottom of this email.
A big, huge thank you to Bo Haarala for his generous help in providing Kelly and John Raley a vehicle.   He went above and beyond to take care of this need in a very timely manner, right at Thanksgiving time.  Thank you Bo!!

I wanted to share with you what happened recently, and all this happened anonymously.  I was told a couple that has been visiting Northcrest wanted to help someone in need.  One of our precious church members directed them to the Helping Hands bulletin board to see what needs were posted.  Well,  just by accident (yeah, right), there were 3 new needs that 3 different people had filled out and left on our board.  This visiting couple took one of those needs and is supply a family with some bare necessities that this mother and her children were needing. Is that not amazing!!  I would call that a divine appointment!!  We may never know who this couple is or who the family in need was, but guess who does know… the one that matters, Jesus. 
Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for in doing so, some have entertained angels unawares Hebrews13:2.
Remember if you have a need or anything you would like to donate you can go to  and submit your need or your item.  Helping Hands Ministry is a way for Northcrest members to help each other.   No item is too large or too small; you never know what others may be in need of.   If you do not want your name listed, just specify that, and then only your need and contact information will be posted.   Along with needs being posted on Helping Hands Ministry web site, there is also a bulletin board in the hallway behind the choir room (or old sanctuary). You may fill out a need request online or from the bulletin board.
If Helping Hands Ministry can be of any help to you or you have a question, please contact us through our web site or bulletin board.
If you meet a need, please go to Helping Hands website and let us know so the need can be removed. 

Or, let one of our committee members know:  Richmond Alexander, Elizabeth Goggins, Carlton Lafferty, Carol Moore, Rhonda Moore, Justin Palmer or Randy Smith.
    "The service you perform not only meets the need of God’s people, but also produces an outpouring of gratitude to God.”    
Be kinder than necessary, you never know what battle someone is fighting.  We all have scars; the only difference is not everyone's scars you can see....
