Paul's letter to the Philippians church is his most personal. Written from prison, under the threat of execution, he shares with them some of his final thoughts. 

As 2018 draws to a close, this message is especially personal. It is Pastor Ken Jensens last official message as the senior pastor at Northgate as he will be retiring on December 31st. Sharing from his heart, Ken encourages the church to continue growing in love and generosity, and to keep on making a difference in the lives of all who come through the doors of the church.

Pastor Larry Davis presents a challenging message on ways to change your perspective so you can align your generosity with the way God intends you to see it. In it you can find ways to let your bucket of blessings overflow into the lives of others so that you have more room in your bucket to let God refill it. Then just repeat the cycle.
