Serving our world

Outreach is at the heart of the Christian life. Followers of Jesus do not spend all of their time in church! God calls us to go out into the world to serve God by loving others: by ensuring that every person has enough to eat, a place to sleep, clean water to drink. 

Below you'll find more information on the initiatives and partnerships that North Decatur supports year after year.

You can find more information about any current events and activities here. Join us in serving our world!

Decatur and Atlanta ministries
