We are honoring the guidance provided by local, regional, and national authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic and not gathering together in person. While we are physically distant, we are socially and spiritually connecting through the technological platforms available to us!
Welcome to Northpoint! We are so glad you have chosen to worship with us today.

New NP Online Care Card

Stay Connected with the Northpoint Family. We all ache to gather again. Being separated is tough, but during stressful times, it is even harder not to have face to face fellowship and the strength that comes from physically being together. Even so, we can still connect with each other. One way is to fill out the new confidential NP Care Card (See link below.). Once submitted, the card will be reviewed by the Northpoint Care Team. If you so indicate on the card, someone from the team will contact you.

Heaven and Earth Will Pass Away
Mark 13
Pastor Taylor Mendoza, Student Ministries

Overview:
The disciples and Jesus find themselves on the temple mount in awe of the beauty of the temple. Despite the beauty, Jesus prophesies that the temple would be destroyed within the generation of His disciples in AD 70. Jesus gives a list of signs that include intense persecution, false messiahs, and the abomination of desolation. He then moves on to discuss His second coming before comforting and challenging His disciples to put their confidence in His Word and to stay active, especially in times of crisis. The grounds of their hope is the truth that heaven and earth will pass away, but the words of Jesus Christ will never pass away.
Application Point:
Disciples have an active and hopeful confidence in the Word of God during times of crisis.
