Serving Local Schools

We are raising funds through a special Beyond offering to bless teachers at local public schools in the greater Rochester area and to build relationships between our campuses and the community. Would you consider giving a gift? Any amount makes a difference. Not sure where to start? A gift of $25 covers the cost of one gift for a teacher!

What did teachers say last year?

The world needs more people like you who are as thoughtful and generous and king as you. You bring so much in all that you do. The kind acts you share brightens many people's days. Thank you for all of your Wonderful ways. Jesus is shining bright through our friends at Northridge. Many thanks for blessing us with us with amazingly delicious lunches. What a treat! Thank you for the beautiful mug, candy, and three gift cards. Say what??!! Unbelievable! It felt like and early Christmas!

Thank you for the wonderful Panera lunch - it was delicious and so thoughtful. What a Friday it was!?! I've already purchased classroom supplies with the generous gift cards and surprised us teachers with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I can not express how you made me feel with your teacher Beyond luncheon. I felt so special and appreciated! What would Jesus Do? Show love, as you did!

On behalf of all of us, THANK YOU for such generosity and kindness last week! The lunches, along with the mugs and gift cards, were so incredibly appreciated.

You did such a great thing for the Faculty and Staff at Helen Barrett Montgomery School #50! Providing lunch and all of the gifts were so greatly appreciated. As teachers, we often are told the things we need to do better. It was nice to be recognized for the hard work we put in all year. I want to thank you for acknowledging our efforts. You truly made my day! Thanks!

Beyond is a movement. It's about rolling up our sleeves and getting involved in making our city and world a better place. The ministries in which we are investing give us a front row seat to use our time and talents to engage, serve, and impact others for the sake of the Gospel.

We want everyone at Northridge to find their role HERE, NEAR, and FAR. Where are you serving HERE, inside the walls of our church? Where are you serving NEAR, outside Northridge in our community? Where are you serving FAR, to people beyond our church and beyond our borders?

Adoption is a powerful picture of God’s love for us. Are you interested in becoming a foster, becoming an adoptive parent, or supporting others involved in foster care or adoption?

We can connect you with other families on a similar journey as we love our city and world by loving hurting children and their families.

Join others at Northridge Church in sponsoring children in the central American nation of Honduras through Compassion International. Your support provides life-changing opportunities such as an opportunity to attend or stay in school, medical care, nourishing food, and mentoring. All of this is coordinated through the local church and brings physical and spiritual healing to the community.
