The mission of the YES! (Youth Empowerment Services)  program is to be a bridge from our church to our local neighborhood. YES! offers a seasonal STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) based Saturday enrichment program to K-8 students.  YES! also provides children in our community with school supplies every year in July.  In a partnership with the Marietta City Schools social workers,  YES! provides community families with food throughout the calendar year.  

SERVAPALOOSA is April 4th!

Join the North River Church of Christ’s YES! Program for a day of service in our very own neighborhood! SERVAPALOOSA! is April 4th from 11 AM- 2PM. Come one, come all: small groups, communities, families, friends, co-workers, etc. Every year, we have three ways to make a meaningful impact on our neighbors.

Family Meal Sharing- form a team to provide meals/food staples to support an assigned family during Spring Break. You can give non-perishables or perishables. You’ll decide whether your entire team or representatives will deliver these goods to your family on April 4th between 10am and 2pm. These teams will not report to the FLC on the 4th, instead you’re taking SERVAPALOOSA! all over Marietta!

Street Team- will serve as the face of North River to the neighbors as we ask for prayer requests, needs and inform them of our dynamic service initiatives through YES! We will also present them with a small token and a newsletter. We always need the ayuda of Spanish speakers.

Sweep Team- demonstrates our willingness to gets our hands dirty with service. Small groups collect trash around the neighborhood and maybe rescue a shopping cart or two.

The Street Team and Sweep Team will meet at the FLC (rain date for these two teams is April 11th) while Family Meal Sharing groups will travel to their assigned families in the community (rain or shine).

Please complete the registration HERE by March 15th so we can direct you to the correct team. Once sorted, you will be provided additional information. Thank you, North River family!
