Central Valley Justice Coalition
Join the Central Valley Justice Coalition for a night of focused prayer and worship on behalf of those who are trapped in modern day slavery. Prayer is central to all we do – God moves and acts when we gather together in his name!
Monday, April 7 from 6:30p-8p at Northpark Church (Youth Room #202)
We will be praying for God’s freedom and justice to flood our Valley, bringing transformation to the lives of all affected by human trafficking. The time will be guided with scripture, media and specific prayer points.

I love you too.
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help. Again, if two lie together, they keep warm; but how can one keep warm alone? And though one might prevail against another, two will withstand one. A threefold cord is not quickly broken.
– Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Harriet Tubman Google Doodle Honors Black History Month
Even in her later years, Tubman continued to be a tireless advocate and donor to those in need. In 1903, she donated a parcel of real estate she owned to the church, under the instruction that it be made into a home for “aged and indigent colored people.” The home did not open for another five years, and Tubman was dismayed when the church ordered residents to pay a $100 entrance fee. She said: “[T]hey make a rule that nobody should come in without they have a hundred dollars. Now I wanted to make a rule that nobody should come in unless they didn’t have no money at all.”

Big Announcement: Bangladesh 2014
We are excited to announce a Missions Trip this summer, July 9-19, where we will travel to The Peoples Republic of Bangladesh. While there we will visit colleges and high schools to play music, make new friends and share about our faith in Jesus. The leadership of a network of churches have invited us to come and to share American youth culture in a redemptive way. A group of us from Northpark Community Church and Peoples Church will comprise the team.
Bangladesh (pop. 155 million) is only .5 percent Christian, and most followers of Christ are legally forbidden to publicly share about their faith. As guests and cultural ambassadors, we will have an opportunity to use our platform in a way that the national churches cannot. As activists and advocates fighting against extreme poverty and modern day slavery, we are also very interested in an opportunity to witness the growing manufacturing economy of this wonderful country and hope to see how reforms on child labor are progressing. For more information on how you can be involved in supporting us through prayer, finances, and awareness, email Bekah, email@example.com or Ryan, firstname.lastname@example.org.
