Northlake has a long history and commitment to missions, and we have a heritage for sending out and supporting missionaries from our congregation who serve around the world. Currently, we support approximately 20 missionary families, many of whom grew up right here at Northlake and have been sent by our church. We also look for Short Term Mission Trips and Opportunities that will both help our own Northlaker's grow in their faith as they are stretched on the misson field, and help those we are serving abroad. During the summer of 2016 we have sent three teams to Guatemala.
In addition to overseas missions efforts, we also are active in supporting local missionaries and organizations such as The Whatcom Dream, Love Inc., and Rebound of Whatcom County. These three organizations are supported by Northlake regularly, through our General Fund. Our missions efforts are supported by our congregation in other ways too, as we annually give towards the following:
- Special Offerings (Spring/Fall) for Short Term Mission Trips, and Christmas Missionary Gifts
- The Community Toy Store
- The Whatcom County Pregnancy Clinic
- Special Offerings that support the Persecuted Church
