The Picnic | August 26 | 4:00-7:00PM


This means we believe in opening our doors and arms to our neighbors and inviting them to experience the hospitality of Jesus. And nothing says hospitality like smoke barbecue! In addition to the barbecue we have a lot of great activities. But, the absolute best attraction of The Picnic is the people you will meet! Atlanta is a big city of busy people; Northside Church is a warm community where we greet old friends and welcome new ones.



The Picnic is FREE but we ask that you RSVP.



Competitions are fun right? Get your “Let’s Picnic” sunglasses and take them with you on your summer adventures. Take pictures and post using the hashtag #LetsPicnicNSC and tag us @NorthsideATL.


We are giving away Jeni's five pint delivery boxes for the photo posted from the farthest distance from Northside Church and for the most creative! Single pints will be awarded to runner-ups!


The winners of our Summer Sunglass Challenge will be announced at the Picnic on August 26! Be there to see the winner!
