Delivering Christmas Meals

Mission:Share is looking for volunteers to help them deliver Christmas meals to the families they serve. They are planning to give out 200 meals, so they can use the extra help. This is an easy opportunity to get your community group and families together to serve this holiday season.



Here are the details:
  • When: Saturday, December 17 from 9am-1pm
  • Where: Mission:Share's Outreach Center 10 Cedarfield Commons, Rochester, NY 14612
  • What: Delivering food baskets to families in need and offering prayer and support to those families. This is also an opportunity to leave the families we visit with some info and an invite to Northridge. Meet up at Mission:Share, break up into teams containing at least two adults, make the deliveries and then return to Mission:Share to confirm the deliveries and share how things went.
  • Who: Community groups, families and individuals. Kids are welcome to participate as long as there are at least two adults on each team.
If you're interested in serving this way, let Steve know via info@northridgeserves.com.

Helping Without Hurting in Short-Term MIssions

This brief video presents a concise summary of the attitude and approach in terms of applying the "Helping Without Hurting" philosophy to short-term missions. This particular excerpt was made in Haiti, but certainly the concepts apply to any missions or serving a person may perform: 

"It's not about what we do, it's about 
the relationships that we build."
