Story from March, 2019
Take a deeper look at a few ministries North supports. Downtown Urban Community Kids (D.U.C.K.) in Phoenix and North Cares partnership with the city of Scottsdale.
We need your help with our Easter Egg Hunt & Outreach on Saturday, April 20th from 9am-12noon. 1) We are gathering supplies for this event. We need plastic Easter eggs, candy (non-chocolate) and non-perishable snacks brought to the office. Please give to Adam Knight or John Williamson. 2) Join us as we serve the kids for the outreach event. We will provide face-painting, games, soccer, snacks, a Gospel presentation and the Easter egg hunt. Located at Smith Park (4030 W Sherman St Phoenix, 85009).
If you remember, North (you) provided 40 backpacks at the beginning of the school year for these kids as well as shoes around Christmas time. We also had a child recently collect supplies for D.U.C.K. instead of receving birthday presents, such a great way to serve! Thanks Brylee!

North Cares - Serve with us April 13!
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.
SIGN UP TO SERVE HERE! ...or on the sign up sheet at Guest Services in the lobby.
*Please show up at North Bible by 8am and we will provide coffee and donuts, pray together and go over the projects for the day.
