What Northern Light United Church means to me

The membership of Northern Light United Church encompasses groups of people from all walks of life and reflects diversity, care for the elderly and frail, sympathy and engagement for the disadvantaged, poor and homeless, while supporting and encouraging opportunities for our children and youth. It is a combination of Methodists and Presbyterians, thus known as the Northern Light United Church located in downtown Juneau, Alaska. Our church has an open-door policy where the homeless can acquire food, safe shelter and a shoulder to lean on when the future may seem dismal. Community groups can use our commercial kitchen and facilities […]

Youth News December 2016-February 2017

November has come and gone. We have come from our experience of meeting Emmanuel Jal to learn more about the child soldiers and lost children of Sudan by watching “The Good Lie” starring Emmanuel Jal (and Reese Witherspoon). The young people noted that it is good to connect with and learn about what people are going through in other parts of the world, since Juneau can be a bit isolating. As we head into December and the new year, we send our prayers and meditations toward the people in Sudan, the people involved with the protest against the Dakota Access […]

Phil’s Thoughts, December 2016

Since April, the Standing Rock Sioux Nation and its allies have been resisting the construction of the Dakota access pipeline that would transport crude oil from the Bakken fields in North Dakota to an oil tank farm in Illinois. Those opposing the pipeline have established encampments at Standing Rock North Dakota where thousands have gathered over the months. The participants describe themselves not as protestors but as water protectors. They oppose the pipeline because its route intrudes on what the Sioux Nation considers sacred sites and because its passage under the Missouri River would threaten the reservation’s water supply if […]

Youth News

The Juneau Youth Ministry Cooperative teamed up with the Junior Spiritual Empowerment Program for an Interfaith Day of Service on Tuesday, October 18 (Alaska Day).

One team went to serve at the AWARE shelter to give some deep cleaning love to the kitchen and living area, as well as help with data entry. Another team served at Helping Hands by sorting and organizing food that will […]

Why Pledge?

The Stewardship Committee asks you to consider making a pledge of what you hope to give to Northern Light during 2017. Pledging makes sense as a way to plan your personal finances. Your expenditures for Northern Light in the coming year will be planned and anticipated rather than spontaneous and unpredictable. Consequently Northern Light will also be able to predictably and responsibly plan its own finances. Pledging is also a way that each of us can translate our faith in what we believe and support into something tangible. Submitting a pledge reminds us that we will regularly give to Northern […]

Your generosity enables us […]
