Northdale Baptist Church is a firm believer in missions support. We currently support the following missions with our prayers and finances.
One of the devastating realities is that New Mexico is no stranger to poverty. As a matter of fact we are #1 in the nation for food insecurity. Now, that is not the #1 that we want to be. Food insecurity causes anxiety and fear. Not to mention kids have difficulty staying focused when they are hungry. There is a saying… “An empty stomach has no ears.” Because no child should be hungry, Northdale Baptist is happy to be a part of “Feed The Kid’s”.
Feed The Kids is a grass-roots volunteer program that exists through the partnerships of local churches in the Albuquerque area. Northdale Baptist Church is currently serving in an elementary school in our community where some of the kids have been identified as having little or no food at home. Our members shop, pack, and deliver food bags each week so that kids in need will have something to eat over the weekends when a school meal is not available.
How to get involved:
Northdale Baptist Church is a partner of Noonday Ministries. Our members prepare a noon-day meal and worship service the fourth Sunday of every other month. Several of our members are also regular volunteers. Noonday Ministries was founded in 1982 to help meet the needs of homeless individuals and families. The mission at Noon Day is to go out of business. By “Building Hope One Person At A Time,” we sincerely hope that one day, no person will be hungry, lacking shelter, or without basic provisions. But, until that day comes, we will strive to help God’s homeless children by providing nourishing meals, spiritual guidance, and many other essential services. www.noondayministries.org

Northdale Baptist Church, as a member of the Baptist Convention of New Mexico, supports missions in our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and all the world through the Cooperative Program. Since its inception in 1845, the Southern Baptist Convention has always had one mission—the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20). Since its launch in 1925, the effectiveness of the Cooperative Program has been dependent upon individuals, churches, state conventions, and SBC entities cooperating, working toward a common goal of sharing the gospel with every person on the planet.
