As a community we believe we are called to participate in the redemptive work of God in the world. Practically that means we seek to live our lives so that we can bless and serve others in the world around us.
North Point encourages people to get involved in what is happening in their neighbourhood and in our city. That means, we seek to help out in our schools, coach our kids in soccer and help our neighbour with whatever their next project is. Our desire is to live our lives right where God has placed us.
But even more important, we want to help the 'neighbour' that God puts in front of us today. That will look different for each person. For some that neighbour will be the person beside them on the way to work in the morning, or the parent of one of your kids friends, or even, an ailing parent who needs to know God's love and care.
There are many way we are learning to serve. And in all of them we seek to do it with generosity, friendship and sacrificial love.
At times we gather together and serve with one of our groups or church as a whole. In the past eighteen months we have been involved in the following serves--
Neighbourhood prayer walks in the Symons Valley & surrounding communities
Hidden Valley Community fall & spring clean-up (partnering with the Hidden Valley Community Association)
Valley Creek School partnership with kids and families in need
Free Community Oil Change for lower income individuals
Samaritan's Purse Christmas Shoeboxes
Several global partners serving around the world through the Christian & Missionary Alliance
Guatemala Partnership with Shawn & Natalie Sagert and their work in San Cristobal and surrounding communities.
