At Northland we never want to be just a come-and-see church, but a "Go and Be" church. Here are some great opportunities to love and serve our community.

Here’s how you can be on mission as the church, bringing hope and help and the light of Jesus to Topeka (read more, below):


Handwrite letters of encouragement to medical personnel in your community


Press in

Stay tuned to Daily Devotions and share it with friends/co-workers to offer hope and help


Continue to give at Northland. Your generosity fuels all that we do, including being able to serve the specific needs of our community in times of uncertainty.
