A primary mission partner, the mission of Literacy Achieves is to equip non-English speaking adults an dkids with literacy and life skills. Three campuses included. Applications are now being accepted for volunteer teachers for the fall semester. Classes start Monday, September 13 (online and in person). No experience needed—training and curriculum provided. Time commitment is 2 hours per week for a 12- or13-week semester. Learn more at literacyachieves.org.
*NPC also supports Hotchkiss Elementary through supply drives, as many Literacy Achieve students attend there!
The Stewpot has been the sole meal provider for The Bridge Homeless Recover Center since May 2008.A rotating group of NPC members have served dinner the third Friday of every month (5:30-7:30 pm) for years. To volunteer individually, please visit thestewpot.org. We hope to resume our group presence soon!

Presbyterian Children's Homes & Services
PCHS has been one of our partners for more than 20 years. Their mission is to deliver Christ-centered care and support to families in need. Join us in Waxahachie on September 18 for a day of service and fellowship as we organize and sort donated clothing. We’ll also organize and set up a recreation room and hang memorial plaques. For lunch, we’ll grill burgers to share in fellowship with PCHS families. No special skills required—just open hearts and healing hands! *Under 17 must be accompanied by adult.
Northridge Without Borders
Northridge Without Borders is NPC’s ministry to the refugee community of Dallas. This fall, we will have an opportunity to expand our knowledge and compassion for the refugee experience through a book discussion on Wednesday, September 29. We will read “Somewhere in the Unknown World: A Collective Refugee Memoir” by Kao Kalia Yang. Later in the fall, we will sponsor a “new arrival” toiletry drive—dates TBD!
