DeWitt church continues tradition of giving back

Northpointe Community Church has been up and running in DeWitt since 1840—177 years this May. “We have been blessed over the years, and I can’t thank God enough,” said lead pastor Rick Ruble. “Most churches have significant and steady growth the first 15 to 20 years, and then a plateau that lasts for a few decades occurs before decline sets in and the church eventually dies.”

The lifespan of a church is similar to that of a human, but this historical church has outlasted all of those in it’s community and in nearby areas. Last May, the church wanted to create a community service project that would help give back to the members of the DeWitt Township community. Their mission at Northpointe is to impact their neighborhoods, their workplaces, and their communities with the grace that Jesus showed.
