Because we believe that God's love in Jesus Christ has broken down the walls that divide us, we seek to embody that love in our congregation and welcome people of all races, sexual orientations and economic circumstances.

A vibrant congregation of more than 600 members—with many more calling the church their home—Northaven is known for inspiring worship and music, interest in the arts, outreach to the community and sensitivity to inclusiveness. All are welcome.


2014 Stewardship Campaign Continues - Grow in Faith, Expand the Possibilities

Pledge Sunday was Sunday, October 26, the day we asked members and others to share with our church community the gifts and assets they have been given through the grace of God. The Stewardship Campaign continues through November.


 It is our hope that every member will make a pledge commitment to our church, no matter how large or small, be it financial or in volunteer service, in support of us taking the next steps toward becoming that church God is calling us to be.


At the close of worship on Pledge Sunday close to 100 members came forward to make pledges of support for our 2015 budget and programs. Forty-one also made donations to our Second Mile of Giving Fund - the Human Development Fund.


If you have not made a pledge yet, we hope you will consider doing so in the weeks again.  Here is a link to the pledge card. They are also available in the church atrium when you attend Sunday School or worship in the sanctuary this Sunday. 

Your giving does make a difference. It is through our giving that God helps us change lives, and in changing them, transforms us and our church.
