You Can Make a Difference
At North Bible we are committed to making a difference in our community by demonstrating the love of Jesus and sharing the hope that lies within us with others. Listed below are some of the ways you can get involved.
Feed My Starving Children
In 2012, North Bible began partnering with Feed My Starving Children to provide nutritious meals to hungry kids around the world. Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God's children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and FMSC ships the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. Their facility and program is family-friendly, allowing participation for children 5 years and up during a 90 minute session. While North arranges large-group opportunities for our church family, individuals and families can sign up for their own meal packing session at the organization's website. Please visit http://www.fmsc.org for more information.
Since 2011, North Bible Church has been partnering with the City of Scottsdale to serve residents in need. Labeled our North Cares program, this venture provides a variety of ways that church members can minister to those in our community. The City of Scottsdale identifies residents who, for various reasons, are unable to care for their homes and properties to keep them up to city code. Oftentimes, this is the result of age, disability or lack of financial resources. North Bible teams up with the city to do small and large scale property cleanups and renovations to help those who are unable to help themselves. If you know how to rake, pull a weed, or paint a wall, North Cares is an excellent way for you to show the love of Christ to people right here in Scottsdale. The city's program that allows North to serve with them is called Operation Fix It. If you want more details about the city's program click HERE.
