Beginning Sunday, September 14, 6:00pm
LIFE Groups are small groups of adults who meet weekly to share concerns, read scripture, build encouraging friendships and pray. Most groups meet on Sunday nights.
At the same time, there will be classes and activities for our children and youth. Joyful Noise, for ages 3 years through kindergarten will meet in the puppet theater area, Kids’ Praise for 1st-6th grade will meet in the Kids’ Praise room, and the NYM (Northlake Youth Ministry) will meet in the youth room for XL.
We want to be a church where it is evident to all that Jesus Christ is alive and at work in the thoughts and actions of His people – a church where you can find a listening ear and the helping hand everyone needs! Be looking for more information about how to get involved in LIFE Groups in the coming weeks!

“A Lasting Marriage”
Marriage Enrichment Seminar
LAST SESSION: NEXT Sunday, September 7
6:00pm, At Northlake
Major Boglin, PhD – Facilitator
This seminar is designed to teach couples attitudes and actions to help develop vitalized relationships. The C-PREP (Christian Prevention & Relationship Enhancement Program) material will be presented, which is based on the most up-to-date research findings of what makes relationships and marriages survive and thrive, including scriptural foundation for developing marriages that glorify God, in order to become salt and light to other Christian couples.
Participants will learn to communicate more effectively, work as a team to solve problems, manage conflicts without damaging connection, & preserve love, commitment, and friendship in marriage. ANYONE can benefit from participating, even if your marriage is in good shape but you want to enhance your communication skills and prevent future problems.
Major L. Boglin, Ph.D. is a certified facilitator and teacher for PREP & C-PREP. Dr. Boglin serves as Family Life Minister for North Atlanta Church of Christ and Executive Director of the Genesis Center for Christian Counseling. He has 25 years of experience in marriage and family therapy and family enrichment. He and his wife of 22 years, Bernadette, have two adolescent sons, Berkley & Alexander.
Please make plans to join us! Make sure to invite your friends and neighbors!
The Worshipping Community
Pitts Library, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
We rejoice with one of our Northlake members, Dr. Pat Graham, director of the Pitts Theology Library (Candler School of Theology, Emory University), who has overseen the completion of the new building for the Pitts Library. The new five-story facility includes high-density shelving, a separate floor for the 135,000 volumes of special collections, and a 1200 sf exhibit gallery. Pitts is among the three largest theological libraries in America. Congratulations to Pat and the Candler School of Theology.
The official dedication of the library is this Thursday, August 28th. Perhaps some of you would like to join a special tour offer by Pat in the coming weeks. Enjoy the photos!
