This October, we are teaming up with the Lincoln / MacColl YMCA to provide a safe and fun way to trick or treat! Trick or Trunk will be held at the Y on Saturday, October 24th from 6 to 8pm.

Any way you do it, you won't want to miss out on on Trick or Trunk!

We invite you and your whole family to worship with us at 10:00am inside Cinema World at the Lincoln Mall. We will also be offering free Easter portraits before and after the service!
We hope to pack the theater full that morning, so as many people as there are seats will hear about the grace that Jesus offers into their lives! If you know of somebody you want to invite to our Easter service, make sure you grab an invite card!
Join us on Good Friday, April 3rd, for a worship service at the NP Offices (37 Thurber Blvd. Smithfield, RI).

A New Year brings inspiration for change, finding new and better ways to live your life. Here at NorthPointe, we are hoping to help you with your resolutions to get out of debt, help manage your finances, learn to make better investments, and to simply teach practical and Biblical ways to handle money through Financial Peace University.
FPU is a class that has helped millions of Americans with those same issues. Through interactive videos, group discussions, practical applications, and community support, we will guide you through the process of creating a healthy financial environment for you and your family.
FPU is a 9-week course, beginning Monday, January 26th from 6:30 to 8:30pm. The cost to register is $109 and free childcare will be provided.
The first class of Financial Peace University has been postponed to February 9th due to the weather. This means that you still have time to register for this semester's class. Also, you may attend the first class of FPU for free to see if it's the fit for you!
If you have any questions please email us at email@example.com!

On October 25th NorthPointe has a great opportunity to work with a new community partner, the Lincoln YMCA, as they put on a Trunk or Treat for Halloween! A Trunk or Treat is a trick or treating event put on by an organization where children walk from car to car, instead of from home to home. Each car is usually themed and decorated to make for a safe, fun, and creative Halloween event! We have the opportunity to provide five or six of our own cars for the event, as well as volunteers to run a sand art table and other activities. The event begins at 6pm and volunteers need to be at the YMCA for set up by 5pm. Not sure you want to decorate a car by yourself? This is a great way to get family or friends involved, maybe even your community group! If you'd like to volunteer for this event please sign up on Sunday morning at NorthPointe. Any questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org!

Life with God is meant to be shared within a community, and that first community is with the family. Nobody has greater potential to impact a child's spiritual development than their parents! To help begin this process NorthPointe will be having a Baby Dedication Sunday. This includes a pre-Dedication dinner on October 9th and than a ceremony on Sunday, October 12th. Your involvement in this Dedication is a pledge to God and to the church family that you are serious about bringing up a child who loves God. As a church, we pledge to come along side you and do our best to equip you to build a spiritually healthy home.
The pre-dedication dinner will be an informative evening, held at the NP Offices at 6pm,(click here for directions) explaining more about the importance of dedicating your child to God. It's so much more than a few minutes on stage that next weekend - it's a journey that will last a lifetime. So if you're not sure or have questions, please plan on attending this dinner. We would love to help you decide if this is the right time to dedicate your child!
