Outreach & Mission

"Committed to… Mission & Outreach with the Good News of Jesus Christ."


Could you be seeking a place where you can share in addressing the many social needs facing the world these days?  Northwood shares your concern, and we work hard toward creating a world where the most needy among us have their basic needs met.

Share your time and talent as. . .

We support our neighborhood school, Linwood Elementary School, its students, parents and teachers with free after-school tutoring called "Homework Club."  This is a volunteer effort, which includes helping with homework and serving a nutritious snack for the children on Mondays and Wednesdays, 3-4:30 PM.  Other local outreach projects include:

  • Christmas Angel Tree for two families
  • Labels for Education
  • Donating back-to-school supplies and back-up clothing
  • After-school Homework Club during school year
  • Teacher appreciation
  • Afghan prayer blankets made for each child who participates with us
  • Classes in parenting and family communication, such as “Parenting with Love & Logic” and "Circle of Security" (see Connect & Grow page for current course)
  • Camp Spalding - a full-service youth and adult camping ministry located near Newport, WA
  • Cup of Cool Water (local ministry to homeless youth) - collecting shoes, socks and personal items
  • Laundry Love outreach project at Liberty Park Community Dev. Center

Sharing in special offerings which address a world-wide array of needs: 

Peace & Global Witness - local and world-wide programs; received on World Communion Sunday
Christmas Joy - for retired missional workers and ethnic schools, received the Sunday before Christmas
One Great Hour of Sharing - disaster relief, world hunger and Self-Development of People; received on Palm Sunday
Pentecost - for the benefit of children-at-risk; received on Pentecost Sunday

Northwood is thankful for our Deacons who serve our congregation and neighborhood and a volunteer retired nurse who works closely with those who have health-related needs.

And, we unite with Presbyterian churches throughout Eastern Washington and the United States to provide monetary gifts for mission workers and programs at home and overseas.  

Weddings - 
Northwood’s North Monroe Street Sanctuary is a beautiful place to hold your wedding!  First of all, we have a caring Wedding Coordinator who has more than 50 years of experience.   And, our Pastor will meet with you for pre-marital counseling and perform your Christian wedding.  If you’d like more details or costs, please call the Church Office, (509) 328-2012, to get prices and to reserve a date as soon as possible.  
Funerals/Memorial Services – Our Sanctuary can seat a small group or up to 200 people for your family memorial or funeral service.  The average funeral cost varies, but can include the officiant, organ/pianist, sound, custodian and simple reception afterwards.  Please call the Church Office, (509) 328-2012, to talk to the Pastor regarding your service needs.  
Fellowship Hall – Our hall seats up to 100 people at tables and can be used for all kinds of special events.  Please contact our Church Office for a current Fee Schedule and to reserve your date!
All fees are considered donations and worked out with the Pastor and/or our Building & Grounds Committee of our Church Session.  Church members, of course, have reduced fees.  And, other than the Sacrament of Communion, we are an alcohol-free campus.
