Serve In The Community
As followers of Jesus Christ, we feel that our lives should be defined by service. Jesus Himself said that He did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45). At Northshore Church, we want to be known as a community that gives much in service to others. We desire to be more than just another building, and move out from the walls of our church and into the streets to serve the greater needs of our community. Service opportunities at Northshore are targeted to encompass a diverse population with a variety of challenges. We all, no matter our age, can show God's mercy and justice to others by serving them in practical ways. Listed below are some ongoing ministries at Northshore Church.
Please fill out the form below if you are interested in volunteering for one or more of the ministries listed.
A faith-based substance abuse program designed to bring freedom to men struggling with addiction. This program involves at least a 6 month commitment, where men are surrounded by spiritual mentors, engaged in Bible Studies, required to work daily, and are involved in Christian counseling. Bethel Colony has expanded to include Women at the Well, a substance abuse treatment program for women, and Transitional Living Program, for families who have been hurt by chemical dependency.
Giving Hope Retreat / New Orleans Mission
A retreat center in Lacombe that offers men and women an opportunity to heal and recover from addiction, mental illness, or abuse. They offer life courses, GED courses, and trade programs to offer participants direction and help them successfully transition back into the community.
Community Christian Concern
A ministry serving those in Slidell who may be in need of food, housing, clothes, or counseling. These services are provided for free and meet tangible needs in our community. Volunteers are needed to greet people, answer phones, unload food items, stock food pantry, etc.
When weather negatively impacts our surrounding communities, Northshore Church rallies together groups to serve. Teams are sent out to tarp roofs, move and clean debris, and chainsaw trees.
We also partner with Louisiana Baptist Disaster Relief to serve communities through providing meals and cleaning up debris.
