Northaven is a vibrant, progressive—and growing—congregation with a deep commitment to the Christian values of love, peace and justice. That means extending hospitality to all. It means nurturing a community of faith that reflects our world’s awesome diversity. It also means taking a stand in the face of the prejudice and bigotry that pervade our world.
Simply put, we strive to live our mission statement: As one body of Christ, the people of Northaven are committed to sharing God's love for the world through ministries of compassion, peace, justice and reconciliation.
What can a Visitor Expect at Northaven?
Opportunities To Worship And Grow Spiritually
Worship service is held at 11:00 a.m. each Sunday. Each Sunday morning, you can join our progressive congregation for thought-provoking teaching, inspirational music, praise and reflection. At Northaven, the joyful worship of God by all people—regardless of differences—is the central focus of our congregational life. Our youngest visitors are always welcome in our worship services. We also provide a professionally staffed nursery located on the first floor. The nursery is open on Sundays from 9.30 a.m. until the end of the service. To learn more, please visit the Worship page.
Sunday classes are offered for all ages and start at 9.30 a.m. Education and spiritual nurturing are important to Northaven and many opportunities are provided throughout the week to learn and grow in compassion, reason and faith. More information...
Opportunities To Help Make The World A Better Place
Visitors can expect to find a church steeped in social involvement. Since our founding in 1955, Northaven has been a distinctive congregational voice in Dallas for peace and justice. Through our Human Development Fund and volunteer participation in many local service organizations there is opportunity to practice Jesus’ teaching to “do unto others” through compassion and love. Internationally, Northaven teams travel annually to volunteer at two church-supported missions: a parish in El Salvador with a calling to community outreach and a health care project in Guatemala. Explore these opportunities.
We at Northaven are committed to offering our time, talents and financial resources in service to our Creator, so you’ll find abundant opportunities for sharing, serving and growing.
Opportunities To Become Part Of An Extended Family
From small dinners with other members to large gatherings like the Feast of Friendship in the spring, members are offered special events to encourage building a sense of community and extended family.
Sunday School classes, singing in the choir, serving on committees, doing volunteer work, the care team, book study groups, men’s and women’s groups and mission trips are but a few of the ways you can meet others.
