Statement of Purpose
The Northbridge Association of Churches (NAC) was formed in 1978 to share our common ministry from our oneness in Jesus Christ and to foster greater understanding, appreciation and cooperation among our churches.
In the intervening years, the NAC has grown in strength, number of participating churches and frequency of shared activities, worship and projects. Financial support comes from a variety of sources including annual donations given by member churches, each of which is entitled to send clergy and two lay representatives to our monthly meetings.
Good cooperation between member churches and lay/clergy participants has allowed us opportunities to be together, love together, learn together and share together. We have learned to focus on that which we can do together, not what divides us, yet discuss and appreciate our differences. God has worked through this unity and enables us to provide the following:
- Baccalaureate Service for Northbridge High School
- Lenten weekday worship series
- Ecumenical Vacation Bible School
- NAC Food Pantry
- Thanksgiving food baskets for those in need
- Christmas gifts for those in need
- Easter food support for those in need
- CROP Hunger Walk
- Volunteers for the Peace of Bread Community Kitchen
- NAC Emergency Fund
- Collecting new backpacks and school supplies
- Management of the Manosh Scholarship
We seek to encourage all churches in Northbridge to join us in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed and in working together under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
