Mission

We would love for you to join us in planning and participating in the many Mission projects supported by NPC or to introduce us to other possibilities! We usually meet the first Monday of the month in Room 139. All are welcome! Volunteers are always needed.
Please email the Mission Committee now if you have any questions or if you are ready to join NPC in making a difference!


Collection Ministries

Yellow Bag Ministry: Each month NPC supports a different organization with needed collections. Some of these organizations are North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC), The Drake House, HomeStretch, Thornwell Home for Children, Mercy Community Church and Family Promise. We also support numerous organizations, such as Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Will to Live, Montreat, and Kids Hope USA with monetary donations. Just pick up a yellow bag, fill it and return it by the end of the month!

Christmas in July and Angel Tree: We currently collect needed school items and Christmas gifts for North Fulton Community Charities and HomeStretch families. A Christmas tree with specific gift tags is placed in the narthex of the church in July and early December.

Mission Projects

NPC welcomed our first Family Promise families in 2013. This program is in partnership with other congregations in North Fulton, helping families facing homelessness try to get back on their feet. Families stay with us for one week at a time– about four times per year. This ministry takes lots of hands doing small jobs. Volunteer opportunities include evening and overnight hosts, set up/break down of rooms, providing dinner and Saturday breakfast, and helping with laundry.

Our Family Promise guests will join us the following weeks in 2018:

  • January 7 – 14
  • March 25 – April 1 (Holy Week)
  • September 16 – 23
  • November 25 – December 2.
NPC and HomeStretch have been partners since 2001. This program helps low-income, working families transition from homeless to stable, independent living. While in the HomeStretch program, families pay under-market rent and participate in regular life counseling programs. NPC currently supports two apartments and their families. Volunteer opportunities include family and financial mentors, furnishings and moving help for the apartments.
NPC is proud to be partnering with Kids Hope USA in support of Northwood Elementary School. We currently have 7 child/mentors pairs in the program. Mentors are matched with a child who could benefit from having another loving, caring adult in their life, and they meet for one hour per each week throughout the school year, focusing on the child’s emotional, social and academic needs. One child, one hour, one church, one school, working in partnership to make a positive change in the lives of children in our community. Please let us know if you are interested in making a difference in a young child’s life.
This is the longest running mission activity in NPC history. We were one of the original supporters of NFCC. We make a monthly financial contribution. Three times a year for a month, we collect for NFCC’s Food Bank. In July, we collect school supplies (Christmas in July). In October, we collect gently used coats for their Coat Closet. In December, we collect gifts through our Angel Tree for Christmas for the less fortunate in the community. We have several folks that volunteer regularly.
Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable. NPC completed our first meal packaging event in Sept 2017. Over 60 members enjoyed time together while packaging over 10,000 meals! These meals have been sent to Puerto Rico to support the hurricane victims.

Mission Trips

NPC offers several opportunities for our congregation to travel and serve together.

*We are currently planning our trips for 2018, and will update this information soon*

  • Youth Trip for Middle and High Schoolers: June 24 – 29 to Memphis, TN

Community Church Partnerships

Mercy Community Church’s mission is to be a place where people living in housing, and those who are not, come together to worship and help one another. They provide meals, clothing and support to the homeless in Atlanta. NPC worships and brings a meal to this congregation quarterly. We also collect needed items. Volunteer opportunities include worshiping and sharing lunch with the congregation, as well as, supporting collections.
Called to be a neighborhood, parish-model church, Redeemer Community Church longs for our church to be made up of friends and neighbors that we see on an everyday basis. We want the family of Redeemer to not simply come together on Sunday to worship, but to spend time with one another throughout the week, while encouraging one another in our daily call to live as people who are loved by Jesus. Drew Henley is the Sr. Pastor. www.redeemeratl.org.
