  Home

Because we believe that God's love in Jesus Christ has broken down the walls that divide us, we seek to embody that love in our congregation and welcome people of all races, sexual orientations and economic circumstances.

A vibrant congregation of more than 600 members—with many more calling the church their home—Northaven is known for inspiring worship and music, interest in the arts, outreach to the community and sensitivity to inclusiveness. All are welcome.

A Day to Remember with Max Glauben - Holocaust Survivor

Max GlaubenSunday, July 27, 2014

1:00 PM

Northaven Sanctuary

 

Max Glauben believes God spared him for a reason: to tell his story. Currently Max speaks at the Dallas Holocaust Museum and elsewhere, sometimes several times a week; his goal is always to tell his story in a way that does not inspire hate. And the more he speaks, the more energized he feels.

 

Please join us for appetizers at 12:15 p.m. in the Northaven UMC Atrium before adjourning to the Sanctuary to hear Max Glauben's compelling presentation at 1:00 p.m. A professionally staffed nursery will be provided during this event for small children (please indicate if your children will need care during the registration process), most school age children will enjoy his presentation! This event is presented free of charge, though a donation will be taken towards Mr. Glauben's speaking honorarium and to allow us to continue offering programs like this. Mr. Glauben will be selling DVDs after the lecture.
