Northside church kids Present "Psalm 23"

We sure do miss our Northside Church kids!!! Hope you all enjoy their amazing presentation of Psalm 23. Adults, many of our little ones already have the whole thing memorized!

One of the things we miss most about worshiping together in person at Northside Church of Richmond is receiving the warmth, love, encouragement and wisdom of Miss Patricia in person! Be on the look out for more encouraging videos or devotional writings related to Psalm 23 in the coming days and weeks as we seek to connect as family to one another during this time. We love you Miss P!! #mannaforthemoment #nurturingfamily

Manna for the Moment

At Northside Church of Richmond, we desire earnestly to be joyful worshipers, nurturing family, and engaged neighbors always, and we are seeking ways to spur us on towards those things creatively right now. One way we're trying is by creating a space where we can interact and be nourished, encouraged, and connected to one another to keep pointing each other to God's Truths to steady us, to shape us, and to send us out in His ways. Be on the lookout for devotional writings with meditations on God's Word, videos of encouragement, and other creative offerings from our church body.
