Uphold the Church
Christian stewardship is about more than just financial giving—we are called to give of our time, our talents, and our assets. This is specifically outlined in our membership vows when we pledge to uphold Northside Church with our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness. Below are ways that you can get involved in each of these areas.
God is calling us to great spiritual growth as we are drawn to pray for our church, our community, our country, and our world. You can join our prayer team by signing up to write personal notes mailed to those on our Prayer Request List or join our group of members faithfully praying from home. If you’d like to request prayer from your Northside family, you may fill out a Care Card on Sunday morning, call the church office, or use the form to the right.
As Christian stewards, we are called to be present—truly present—in our community of faith and life of the church. Our mission statement begins with “there’s a place for you at Northside”… and we truly believe that! There are a wealth of volunteer opportunities for those yet to find their place. Use our form to tell us more about your interests, and we will help get you connected.
Giving our assets can mean financial or material donations. To support our church’s mission and ministry you can click the button to the right and choose “Operating Budget” as your designated fund.
We also have ministries that take items throughout the year as well as seasonal and thematic donation drives. For more information about any of these drives, contact Rev. Angela House, our Associate Pastor over Missions.
Mission Sunday Kits
On August 27, we will have an event where we work with four different mission partners to pack kits and supplies that they need. You will have a chance to serve and learn about these organizations with your whole family. We need your help collecting supplies for each kit. You can help us out by going ahead and purchasing items from the Amazon wish list!

Here at Northside, we feel that Missions outreach is an opportunity to serve others and, in doing so, grow spiritually as a congregation. Jesus came not to be served but to serve. Our Missions opportunities focus primarily on providing basic needs in the areas of housing and hunger in underserved communities of metro Atlanta.

We are called to testify about our faith through words, deeds, and attitudes. How do you tell the good news? It’s sharing an inspirational quote or song lyric from a study or worship experience. It’s inviting a friend to worship. It’s simply engaging in dialogue and building each other up in Christ.
