Community Partnerships: Friends of Northgate Elementary

As a church in Seattle, we are committed to our neighborhood. We partner with various schools and projects in Ballard and beyond. This year we are proud to join alongside a community partnership with Northgate Elementary School. God loves the city and schools are the heartbeat of the city! Below are some ways that you can learn more about what is going on with the Friends of Northgate Elementary School project! 


A Local Human Rights Statement 

The session of Northminster Presbyterian Church commissioned an examination of our values, our confessions, and a response to our cultural context. Through a nine month process, the Human Rights Committee crafted a document that was adopted by the session in October 2017. You can read the text of the document by clicking the button below. 

As we move toward widening our education and learning more about opportunities for service, we will continue live into this document as a community.

Global Partnership

At Northminster, we have chosen to be a sending church for Dan and Kathryn Smith-Derksen and their work in Cape Town, South Africa.  Dan and Kathryn will be serving through the Mennonite Mission Network for a three year term in Cape Town, South Africa.  Kathryn served as our choir director for the last four year, but now has the opportunity to embrace her passion of global service. 

You can always give through their secure site, or deliver funds through Northminster. We continue it our partnership with them and their work.
