Each month we challenge our church to take part in an intentional act of kindness with our #FORTHEBURG campaign, which is an effort to show our community that Northside

is FOR them, and God is FOR them.


In August, we are collecting school supplies. Many children will start the school year in a deficit and do not have the necessary school supplies for the new year. So as a church, we want to fill in the gap. 

We ask that you sponsor an elementary student by picking a grade and gender to make a backpack for this school year. We want to give students in need a new backpack with all the supplies they will need for their year. We ask that items be unused and still in their packaging. Use the school supply list provided below and drop off items at the church office during the week or at the drop area in the main lobby on Sunday morning by Aug 23rd.


In addition to supplies, we ask that you take a moment and pray over your backpack; pray that the student receiving the supplies will grow to know God and have a successful year. 

We know this intentional act of kindness will show God is FOR these students to help them begin the school year off right. 

School Supply Lists:



"If you were out this morning on Maguire St. you might have noticed a large group of people picking up trash along the street and even in the business lots and adjoining street areas. I asked a lady who these people were and she said Northside Christian Church. I have to say they deserve a huge thank you from our community. They even picked up small stuff. If we could all do this as we walk around outside our community would be a clean and awesome place to live and visit. Great job Northside God is definitely shining through your church. Thank you for making our main street look beautiful."
