To make the love of Jesus tangible everyday…..!
The group strives to make the love of Jesus tangible to our church body, our community and the city of Atlanta; where we share God’s love and co-labor with the Holy Spirit to bring salvation, restoration and reconciliation to all.
What we do:
We set up an annual calendar with monthly events. A few of our annual events include:
- Fall Blanket and Sleeping Bags Outreach
- Meal of Thanksgiving
- Pantry Donation Month
- Hunger In Action Event
- Holiday Adoption
The Compassionate Hearts ministry provides a benevolence closet that is fully functioning to help assist NCCA church families during times of need, by providing food, clothing, and toiletries, along with some over the counter medications. The benevolence closet is open to the general public Sunday afternoon directly after service and Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM. We are always accepting the above items along with financial donations to keep the benevolence closet full and operational for our church family.
Along with providing necessities for those in need and the various outreach programs to our community, The Compassionate Hearts ministry also makes available these services:
- Hospital Visitation allows us to demonstrate the church’s love, concern and compassion towards church members, visitors, and contacts who are in the hospital.
- Mentor LGBT youth throughout the city to love, encourage, and empower them to fulfill their purpose and life goals.
- Shut-in Visitation to reach out minister and fellowship to those who cannot come to church because of their health.
A confidential ministry line is set up at 404-507-2957, where you can leave a voice mail to request prayer, hospital or home visitation, benevolence closet inquiry or other needs. Please be sure to leave your name, number, and details of your request so that we will be able to process everything appropriately.
How To Get Involved
Feel free to reach out to the current leaders, which are Deacon Jim Koslosky, Pastor Mark LeGear, Mary Coleman and Mauricio Graham for more information. This ministry is open to all who are members of NCCA and volunteers are always welcomed to help participate in the various outreach events. We are not a membership group as we believe God calls all of us to be his servants. Contact the ministry at CompassionateHeartsNCCA@Gmail.com

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. ~Matthew 25:35-40
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. ~John 13:34-35
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive. ~Acts 20:35
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. ~Hebrews 13:16
If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?
~1 John 3:17
