We at North River Church love to get involved serving in our Tuscaloosa community. We work with various ministries throughout the city of Tuscaloosa. We are a part of the Tuscaloosa Chamber of Commerce and are an Adobt-A-School Partner with Matthews Elementary. If you have a service project or ministry you would like us to get involved with, please let our Outreach team know by emailing Nate Young.
Organizations we are working with:
Each fall the community of Tuscaloosa gathers together for a Day of Hope to help serve those in our community that may need a wheelchair ramp, new stairs to get in their house, or just some help cleaning up their yard. NRC takes on several of these projects each year. Here are some pictures from this past Day of Hope.
“Sav-A-Life is a comprehensive pregnancy care ministry that is dedicated to offering free and confidential services in a loving environment to women, men, and families facing an unplanned pregnancy.
English Cafe is an outreach at Baptist Campus Ministries for international students. It was started by an English teacher on campus to give non-english speaking students a platform to be tutored for free, while also allowing believers the ability to share their faith with people who may have never heard what Jesus did for them.
Every Saturday, we have the opportunity to serve alongside First Community Church with their Saturday morning soup kitchen. We prepare and serve breakfast for 75-100 people, and are able to sit down and share life with those that are beat and trodden down in our own community.
We partner with Jesus Way Homeless Shelter financially, but are always looking to help in donations, gardening, construction projects and “adopting” families. They also have after school programs, tutoring, a men’s shelter, a women’s shelter and family housing.
Alabama Backpack Coalition
Late each summer, we partner with other churches in our area to collect backpacks and school supplies to distribute to children in our area. We are part of the pick up station at Matthews Elementary.
Bigger C Encouragers
We partner with other local churches in the area and DCHMC to be a support group for people affected by cancer and their families. We direct them to Jesus Christ who is their real Hope!
