Find a Group That's Right For You

We believe very strongly in small group ministries!

Our small group ministries include our Sunday school classes, Bible study groups, share groups, support groups, various short-term studies, men’s ministries, our women’s ministry, youth and children’s ministries, sanctuary choir, youth and children’s choirs, bell choirs, and many, many more.

At the Information Desk outside our Sanctuary and outside Hope Hall there are numerous brochures on the various ministries of the church. Also – you are encouraged to call the church office for more information.

After joining Northside, new members receive a packet of information from Daphne Moses. In this packet is a Ministry Opportunity Sheet that new members are encouraged to fill out and give to Daphne. Daphne will work closely with you to help you discern where God is calling you to be in ministry. Email Daphne at with any questions you might have.

About our Sunday School!

Sharing the love of God and making disciples who follow Jesus Christ — that’s the purpose statement for Northside, and as a church, we believe one of the best ways to make disciples is to train them in God’s Word. We aim to follow this mission throughout each week — Sunday until Saturday. From every infant to each and every older adult, all people that come to Northside are encouraged to find out what God has in store for their lives. One of the most important ways to do that is to study the Word of God: The Bible. There are a wide variety of classes for adults and a class for every child’s age group.

Each spring and fall Northside begins a 6-10 week small group experience. There are numerous small groups meeting during the day and in the evening, almost every day of the week. These small groups study the same materials - either a study written by our Senior Pastor or a challenging Christian book.

Being a part of one of these studies is a great way to learn what it means to be a follower of Christ as we study scripture together and support each other in a small group setting.

At the beginning of each small group study, individuals can choose to remain in the same small group they have been in or join a different group. To sign up for a small group, contact the church office at 668-0617.
