We believe that we are closest to God’s heartbeat when we spend time going through life together, sharing in the passionate pursuit of Christ. Just as the human body is made of many individual parts, each part can’t thrive or survive apart from the whole—so it is in a Christ-centered community. It’s vital to be connected to the whole body to flourish.
Our desire is to see true community happen in an honest, transparent atmosphere, building each other up in the faith, bearing each other’s burdens, speaking the truth in love and becoming more Christ-like. It is because of this devotion to Christ-like community we encourage everyone to become connected into a smaller group community within our larger body of faith. No matter where you are on your journey we would love to connect with you!
We were made to do life together.
The weekend service can be an inspiring and challenging experience, but it can’t fulfill the need we have for community. We need others around us to be fully known, celebrated and challenged toward living like Jesus.
Because we want to grow in relationship with God and in friendship with one another by really “doing life together,” there are dozens of groups of about 6–13 people all over the area designed to help build community and connections at Northshore. These groups are for people of all stages of life and relationship with God. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, being in relationship with others is important for your spiritual growth. The purpose of Small Groups is to live life alongside one another to deepen our love and understanding of God and our obedience to Him, to learn to love each other well, and to express this love to others beyond our groups through service opportunities.
We would love to have you host a group. If you are interested, take a look at the Small Group leadership page and find out how.
