North Avenue Presbyterian Church has a rich legacy of missions.  We engage the city, befriend internationals and partner with the global church seeking to become a people of embodied presence among the materially poor, refugees, international students, and the church in difficult areas of the world. Read more about NAPC Missions' strategic plan and partners here.


Help us collect food items for our neighborhood ministry partner, Midtown Assistance Center (MAC). We will collect food to help stock MAC’s food pantry, February 2 through February 25. You may pick up a shopping list in the BMC Lobby and/or Children’s Ministry Welcome Desk. With so many snow days this winter that cancelled school, many children who are food insecure have not been served meals on a regular basis. MAC’s food pantry helps families to provide healthy and consistent meals in these times of crisis. If you are interested in learning more about ongoing volunteer serving opportunities at MAC please contact Roxie at Donation bins that are located The Welcome Center on the third floor and Children’s Ministry Lobby.



We have multiple First Serve opportunities throughout the year that serve
as an on-ramp to explore how you can engage in mission with a NAPC Mission Partner.
