“Seek the peace and prosperity of the city.”

Jeremiah 29:7

We believe that the church is called and sent to love our neighbors, and to help our communities and neighborhoods flourish!

We are privileged to be able to partner with others to work for the good of the city!  Here are some of our partnerships:

Weekend Nutrition for Northampton Students (WNNS)

This is a new pilot program in the Northampton Public Schools that provides nutritious meals and snacks over the weekend for food-insecure students. The program is being implemented by volunteers from four local faith communities, including College Church, with the support of the Northampton Public Schools. Our goal is to assure that every student in Northampton starts each week at school well-nourished and ready to reach their full potential. Interested in becoming a volunteer with WNNS? Contact Naomi Desilets for more information.

Straight Ahead Ministry

Volunteers share the love of Christ with students in lock-up facilities throughout the region through friendship and Bible Study.  We periodically hold hygiene product drives on their behalf. Find out more, or contact Marc O’Neil to get involved!

Refugee Resettlement


Northampton and surrounding communities have welcomed well over 100 refugees to the Valley since 2016.  From 2017-2021, College Church partnered with Catholic Charities to provide a “Circle of Care” for a refugee family from the Congo.  We are currently the Donation Hub for Refugee Resettlement in the Valley and continue to support refugee resettlement efforts in various ways.  For more information,  visit


Operation Christmas Child


Every November, roughly 10,000 shoeboxes filled with gifts pass through our campus on their way to children living in poverty all over the world.  In addition, our congregation hosts an annual packing party where hundreds of shoeboxes are packed and prayed over before shipping!
