Interested in helping build the FUTURE of New North?

Give

How we spend our money makes a powerful statement about who we are and what we value. As Christ followers, our generosity flows from understanding that all we have is not ours to own, but has been entrusted to us by God for a purpose. Jesus did not shy away from teaching about a lifestyle of generosity. In fact, He spoke of money more than any other subject.

Ways to give

Money is important to Him not because he needs our money, but because he knows how easily love of money can become a roadblock in our relationship with Him —

“You cannot serve both God and money”

(Matthew 6:24).

Biblical Guidelines

At New North Church, we endorse the biblical guidelines set forth for all believers regarding giving.

Christmas Eve
Giving

We have a wonderful tradition of giving away the entirety of our
Christmas Eve offering to a global & local initiative. Here’s the
initiatives we’re supporting this year.

Global Initiative #1

Church Plant in Ethiopia with Compassion International

Since 2010, Compassion has planted a total of 294 churches worldwide. Their church planting strategy includes working with an established local “mother” church to plant a permanent “daughter” church in a new, nearby community where they already have a ministry presence.
We are excited to work in Ethiopia because there is not only a huge need there, but we want to do more gospel work in Africa. The investment needed to plant a church is $75,000 and includes building the basic church facilities such as classrooms, restrooms, electricity and plumbing. This church plant will include an initial registration of approximately 200 children who we’ll get to sponsor in the future.

Local Initiative #2

Minister Housing Assistance Fund

As you all know; we live in a very expensive area which makes it difficult to recruit and retain great staff. Some of our pastors have been evicted due to the difficult housing situations in our area. Many churches in the Bay Area have various ways to assist their ministry professionals with long term housing resources. To better address this huge need, a group of elders and deacons are developing a plan to meet this need.

Our goal will be to help our ministry professionals have more housing stability, become better stewards and to give them deeper roots in the community and ultimately help them towards retirement. A portion of our Christmas Eve offering will establish a housing assistance fund to meet these needs.

To give to these funds, you can write “Christmas Eve Offering” in the
memo line of your check, or select “Christmas Eve Offering” in the
dropdown when you give online.
