A note from Don and Susan...
"We love Atlanta and we love serving with our North Atlanta family. It is such a joy to be a part of a Christ-centered, diverse, community-impacting church. Together with our church family, we have grown in our love for Christ Jesus and our desire to inspire others to give themselves fully to God. Our prayer is that North Atlanta can be an inspiration to everyone we touch."
