At Northpointe, we are passionate about serving. Serving each other and serving the community, in the name of Christ. But, we are also passionate about doing life together! We firmly believe that life is better together, so we feel that by joining the act of serving with the idea of “together” in a group is pretty awesome! We have many opportunities throughout the year for you to grab your Life Group, friends or family and serve together. In addition, we are partnering with area non-profit organizations that are all about serving the community , so that we can match up groups and individuals with an area of serving that utilizes their gifts and passions best.
Compassion Teams are led by individuals who are moved by a passion to meet the needs of those they serve. These people have started something on their own or partnered with an organization that shares their passion.

Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan began as a dream of community leaders, healthcare professionals and parent advocates in Lansing, Michigan in 1996. These community members came together to address an important need: How to best care for the many families who come to Mid-Michigan for medical treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Too often these parents were forced to sleep in waiting rooms or cramped hospital rooms, bathe in bathroom sinks and eat out of vending machines while their child was hospitalized — difficult conditions during their most tragic times. There had to be a better way. After years of research, planning, fundraising and designing and with the support of the community and local businesses, the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan became a reality in June 2000.Since that time, our House has served more than 1,500 families, with the mission to provide a warm and caring home-away-from-home during families’ greatest time of stress and difficulty—the illness of their child.
