Due to the bad weather, we will not have free take-out dinners on Monday, April 18. Hope to see you next Monday!

Our Current Status

Starting on June 6, we will be worshiping in the sanctuary. Seating will be an approtriate distance and everyone will be required to wear a mask (we have members with children who haven't been vaccinated, others who are caring for family members with compromised immune systems, and other situations so we are caring for the safety of all). The service will be live-streamed via the Northside Facebook page and on the "Service Videos" page above on Sunday afternoon.

Office hours will be by appointment and only as needed.


Welcome to Northside Presbyterian Church in Blacksburg, Virginia. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Northside has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We invite you to "Come Walk With Us" each Sunday as we join in the fellowship of Christ.
