Christmas Giving

During the season of Christmas Northside Drive Baptist Church provides many ways for members to brighten the holidays of others. Through gifts of clothing, toys, food, and money, we share Christ’s love in our community and around our world. As you plan your personal or family giving, please consider supporting these projects supported by the Missions Ministry Team.
