Being the Church in Northbridge

The Northbridge Association of Churches (NAC) was formed in 1978 to share our common ministry from our oneness in Jesus Christ to foster greater understanding, appreciation and cooperation among our churches.

In the intervening years, the NAC has grown in strength, number of participating churches and frequency of shared activities, worship and projects. The sole means of our financial support comes through the annual donations given by member churches, each of which is entitled to send clergy and two lay representatives to our monthly meetings.

Good cooperation between member churches and lay/clergy participants has allowed us opportunities to be together, love together, learn together and share together. We have learned to focus on that which we can do together, not what divides us, yet discuss and appreciate our differences. God has worked through this unity and enables us to provide the following:

  • Thanksgiving Eve service
  • Good Friday service
  • Easter sunrise service
  • Baccalaureate Service for Northbridge High School
  • Blackstone Valley Free Medical Program for the uninsured
  • Ecumenical Vacation Bible School
  • NAC food pantry
  • Thanksgiving food baskets for those in need
  • Christmas food baskets and gifts for those in need
  • Easter food baskets for those in need
  • Crop Hunger Walk
  • Collecting coats and warm clothing
  • Volunteers for the Peace of Bread Community Kitchen and Summer Lunch Program
  • Ecumenical prayer chain
  • NAC Emergency Fund
  • Faith Lift: A Time Out for Women
  • Hymn Sing at nursing homes
  • Collecting new backpacks and school supplies
  • Donations to local and worldwide service agencies
  • Sponsoring Red Cross Blood Drives
  • Management of the Manosh Scholarship


NAC seeks to encourage all churches in Northbridge to join in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed and in working together under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
