MISSIONS

cross

Here at Northside we feel that missions outreach is an opportunity to serve others and in doing so grow spiritually as a congregation. Our service opportunities focus primarily on basic needs in the areas of housing and hunger in underserved communities of metro Atlanta.

Disaster Response Team

Northside Church now has a disaster response team. Our team serves as needed by taking steps to prevent further damage to homes affected by hurricanes, tornados, floods and other natural disasters. Early Response Team (ERT) training is offered by UMCOR and suggested for team members but not always required to serve–each event has unique requirements. Please contact us for more details. We hope you will join this ongoing mission opportunity to provide a caring presence of the church to survivors as we make repairs and help clean up the destruction.

Housing

Missions outreach is an opportunity to serve others, not just around the world, but also right here in the community. Northside is committed to mobilizing support for the homeless, at-risk youth, neighborhood revitalization, and general relief programs, through an array of ministries and projects focused on housing. We partner with local nonprofits, Murphy-Harpst Children’s Centers, Habitat for Humanity, Wellroot Family Services, and Action Ministries.

Hunger

Mission opportunities at Northside focus on meeting the basic needs of those in the underserved communities of metro Atlanta. One of those basic needs is hunger, and we partner with Buckhead Christian Ministries, Food Security for America, Good Samaritan Health Center, and Action Ministries to support families in need.

Metro Atlanta Project (MAP)

The Metro Atlanta Project is a weeklong, student-led, adult-supported annual service project dedicated to serving the community through roofing projects, playground construction, and general home repair for those in desperate need. Founded in 1999, this year saw 5,000 total hours of work on 14 different sites and 125 students building community through daily worship and self-sacrifice.

Periodically we have one day MAP service projects. Our most recent one was a food packing party that our whole church family could participate in—even our youngest children.

Mission Trips

In the Great Commission, Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus we are told to go out into the world to and make disciples of all nations. Northside offers mission trips domestically and internationally. We also support global missionaries serving The Bahamas, Hungary, Nicaragua and the Ukraine. Domestic mission trips include Appalachia Service Project (ASP.)
