Family Fun Tubing @ Elm Creek
December 27th, 2017
If you like sledding, you’ll love snow tubing. Come get to know other Northwood families as you speed down the hill together, then ride a moving sidewalk up a hill 10 stories high and then soar back down again! If cold is not your thing bring the kids to tube as you hang out in the Chalet with other Northwooders. There is something for everyone! Join us Wednesday evening Dec. 27 at Elm Creek Park from 6-8pm for a night of family fun.
Connected Families Workshop @ Maple Grove Community Center
January 20th, 2018
What kids learn when they are disciplined will last a lifetime. When parents are thoughtful about this, their kids grow up knowing that they are valued people built for God’s purposes. When parents are not thoughtful, any myriad of troubles can grow.
“Discipline that Connects” is a profound and practical way to think about discipline that has empowered thousands of parents to be wiser and more effective when they discipline. This workshop is deeply biblical, immediately useful, and will change your life and your child’s life for good!
Our presenters at this important seminar are Lynne and Jim Jackson from Connected Families. Jim & Lynne LOVE making God’s grace and truth practical for parents. Their combination of experience at home with three wired kids, and in careers helping kids and parents, have uniquely prepared them to give parents tools they can use right away, supported by memorable principles that will last a lifetime. Jim and Lynne have been featured on Focus on the Family, Desiring God, KTIS radio, numerous radio programs and podcasts. You can visit their website at connectedfamilies.org to learn more.
February 9th - February 11th, 2018
Who am I? What is my story? These are only two of many critical questions a man must answer throughout his life as he defines who he is, what his purpose is, and how he can grow and help others. Join us as we tackle questions that rattle in the minds of most men at our annual retreat at Big Sandy Camp in McGregor, MN.
This is your opportunity to meet, have fun, and connect with other Northwood guys! Encourage your friends to join us, and make new ones. The weekend is as much a chance to build christian community as it is a chance for spiritual growth.
We will enjoy snow tubing, competitive sports in the indoor gym, and a bonfire. You won’t want to miss out on another great retreat!
Dates: February 9-11 Cost: $115 (includes 5 meals, 2 nights lodging, and study guide)
