IN TOWN. . . ACROSS THE NATION. . . AROUND THE WORLD

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.

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 visitation 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.
