Northside Loves Our Community

Ways to Respond to the Covid - 19 Pandemic

We want to be a church that is reaching out to people in need. Even in the midst of social distancing, we can serve those around us.
Food Drive for Families in KISD

Step 1: Email  [email protected] stating you want to help, include your name, phone number and home address.  

Step 2: Between now and May 25,  set a container out on your front porch for people to drop nonperishable food items into. You can do it for only one day, or you can accept donations for the entire time. It’s up to you! 

Step 3:  Tell people about it!  Post on social media. Send text and email messages. Have them drop off items. Let people know what you’re doing in whatever way works best for you.   

Can’t or don’t want to be a collection point? No problem! Find someone who is and tell your friends to bring items there, or simply bring your donations to someone else’s collection point.   

Step 4:  One of our team members will pick up the donated items from  your front porch starting at 9 am on May 26  to deliver to the distribution center.   

Once the items have been sorted,  we will then be able to deliver boxes of groceries to our families in need.

Items Needed:   

  • Grocery store gift cards 

  • Bags of Rice

  • Pasta Sauce and Spaghetti Noodles

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly   

  • Macaroni and Cheese

  • Oatmeal

  • Canned Tuna or Chicken

We will accept any non perishable  food items. Thank you in advance for making this food drive a tremendous success! 

**Important  your container will not be returned to you  so you may want to transfer the food items to another container, or set out something that you don’t need back.  **

Call Her By Name - Northside's Prison Ministry

We can’t travel to the prison right now, but we can still encourage the women there in Christ! Please join us in sending encouraging notes and drawings! This is something your whole family can participate in. Notes filled with encouragement, hope and scriptures will show the women the love of Christ and that people care for them.

All notes and drawings must be on plain, white, copy paper. No card stock or colored paper. Please leave out all personal, identifying information. You may say that your note is from Northside and invite them to join us when they are released.

The Chaplin will distribute them to the women as they gather for a movie night. 

All drawings and letters should be mailed to Northside Prison Ministry – 7911 Oak Moss Drive, Spring, TX 77379.

Prison Ministry Online Supply Drive

Supplies like deodorant, soap, toothpaste, and shampoo are not given to Texas prisoners for their daily needs. Throughout the year, the Chaplins at the state facilities receive supply donations to provide these items to those who cannot afford to purchase them. However, during this season no supplies are coming in.

Help meet this need by purchasing the items on this list: Amazon Wish List
