Want to make a difference in the lives of others during the COVID 19 crisis? Here’s how.

MUST Ministries

Throughout the year, we partner with this special ministry to meet the needs of our local community through events such as coat and can drives, school lunch and backpack preparation. But there is much more to do at their ministry center in Kennesaw. See how you can help out.

We are teaming up with MUST Ministries again this summer to help feed the children that normally receive free lunches during the school year.

Needed items for the meal kits, individually wrapped:

  • Kraft Easy Mac & Cheese Cups Lunchables
  • Individual Microwavable Cup Meals – i.e. Campbell’s soup, Beef Stew, Chef Boyardee
  • Salty Snacks – i.e. Pretzels, Goldfish, Peanut Butter Crackers
  • Sweet Snacks – i.e. Quaker Chewy Bars, Fruit Snacks, Fruit Cups, Applesauce, Animal Crackers Juice Boxes, Capri Suns

Please bring items to Main Lobby for collection.

YMCA Food Drive

We are collecting food items that will help feed needy kids that normally are fed at school. Consider donating peanut butter, jelly and bread to be distributed to our community partners on Fridays. Please drop items off in containers at the Mount Paran North Main Entrance. No glass items, please. Contact [email protected] for information.

The Table on Delk 

A ministry that provides a safe place for those who are currently, or at risk of, being sexually exploited to have a meal and get connected to resources that they might not know about. Their main focus during the COVID crisis is on distributing 60 sack lunches a day, 6 days a week, to homeless women and children. You can help here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d4ba5aa29ab9-sack

Grocery Delivery Team

We are making daily deliveries to those who can not get out to pick up supplies. Join our team to become a shopper or to help make deliveries. Contact [email protected] to sign up!

Stay Connected

Don’t forget to call or check-in with neighbors and loved ones during this challenging time.

We exist not only to serve the needs of our congregation but to have a positive impact on our local community—showing our neighbors the love of Jesus. The following service groups meet most of the year.

Table on Delk

The Table on Delk provides a safe place for those who are currently, or at risk of, being sexually exploited to have a meal and get connected to resources that they might not know about. Volunteers are needed to prepare food and to show our guests the Father’s love. By showing them His love through genuine interactions, telling them that their lives do matter and that He has a plan and purpose for them, some of those we serve will take steps toward healing and restoration.

Church-wide Outreach Events

Christmas Wish List

Be a part of the major outreaches we offer each year. From our Freedom Celebration in July and our Back to School event in August to the Thanksgiving Outreach and Christmas Wish List, you have the opportunity to serve guests and those in need. These events are “all hands on deck” events; from providing parking help, to helping a child try on shoes, to providing a Thanksgiving meal to a family in need, to sponsoring a child for Christmas.

Interested in volunteering, please call Community Care at 678.285.3204.

Our Partners

YMCA
The YMCA is known as a great place to get healthy and fit, but, one thing you may not know is their commitment to help the surrounding community. North, along with other non-profits, local businesses, and government grants, partner with the YMCA on their projects to help bring food and meals to those in need, provide produce to local “food deserts”, and provide preschool education to poor communities.

Missions
