There is so much going on right now in the world around us. There is significant fear and anxiety over the current conditions and the things we face with a health crisis, restrictions to gathering, impact of state and federal guidelines on businesses and employees, etc. It is our goal to mobilize the Lord's church to assist those in need in the Northview community and in the community at large and to bring stability and calm. To that end we're accepting requests for aid and pairing those with church members that are willing to lend a hand and offer assistance.
If you have a need or know someone who does, please click below and complete this simple form and we'll do our best to meet the physical and spiritual needs you have. Prayer requests can also be submitted here for the church staff and elders to faithfully pray over.
If you or your community group are willing to offer help in some way within our church body and our community please complete the following submission so we can best assess meeting the needs around us.
