Meet Our Neighbors at Streets Alive

Come meet our neighbors on September 30 as Peachtree Street closes to cars and makes way for cyclists and pedestrians! Take a shift (1-3, 3-5, or 5-7) to help with the beverage station, to be a greeter, or to give tours of the church. We need five volunteers for each shift.

We hope you'll spend some time exploring our neighborhood during Streets Alive, too! See more about Atlanta Streets Alive.

New Reconciliation Focused Small Group

“White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” by Robin Diangelo provides a framework to explore and the experience what it means to be white. 

Join Into safe space to ask hard questions; to learn new rules of engagement; to challenge each other to discover (perhaps again) the gifts, skills and, most of all, the Lord's heart to stand together to break racial inequality and learn what we can do to engage more constructively. 

If you are ready to continue on this journey from where you are right now, contact Jane Hubbard at jmhhubbard@gmail.com or 404-200-6283 by September 15.

A Word of Hope Bible Study

"Do not let your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me." This assurance of God's presence in our lives, from the Gospel of John, is one of the most powerful statements in the New Testament. This year, the Women's Inductive Bible Study will explore this gospel, which Scottish theologian William Barclay once described as "overflowing with riches." This group meets at 10 a.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, with the new study set to begin on October 24. Newcomers are most welcome at any time. For more information, contact Sharon Bailey at (404) 248-9463 or
sharonbailey19@gmail.com, or Betty McKay at (404) 252-3174 or docbetty@bellsouth.net.

Flourish: Women's Bible Studies

The Women’s Ministry kicks off a new Bible study—David: A Study in Imperfection—looking at the life of King David from the Old Testament. Known as the boy giant-slayer, shepherd king, and man after God’s own heart, David’s life and rule as king was also marked by sin, failure, and struggle. Come explore David’s complex life and pursuit of God. 

Studies meet at the church on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. and Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m.  beginning the week after Labor Day (September 6/7). Registration opens on August 10 here.

Austria Youth Mission Trip Blog

A team of 14 youth and leaders are traveling to Linz, Austria, July 12-24 to work alongside NAPC Missionaries  Werner and Lisa Schobesberger at he House of Hope, a ministry that welcomes refugees from all over the world. The team will have the opportunity to serve refugees there by fulfilling some of their basic needs, offering them hope through the Gospel and helping them to become integrated into society. 

The Team will be sharing stories and photos from their trip here. We hope you'll follow along!

Young Adult Summer Retreat

What is the best way to connect with other young adults (ages 20-45) at North Avenue? Our Young Adult Retreat! Whether you are new or old to NAPC, we want YOU to join us for a weekend full of fun, connection, and storytelling. This year we will be journeying to Americus, GA, where we will learn about Koinonia Farm, an interracial, intentional community founded in the 1940s during the Jim Crow South. From this example of New Testament living, we will explore the theme of reconciliation within our lives. The retreat costs only $40 for the weekend, July 14-16.  As a bonus, we might be able to watch President Jimmy Carter teach his renowned Sunday School class. Register for the retreat here.

First Sundays Coffee

As a church family we have been missing the opportunity to share a meal together on Sundays. Come enjoy a bite to eat and a cup of coffee in the Welcome Center on the first Sundays of the month anytime between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. This is a great place to connect with others at NAPC or to ask questions about the church—or just enjoy some extended fellowship time outside of worship.
