Adult Small Groups


We are not meant to do life alone.

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 all over the eastside designed to help build community and connections at Northshore. So what are you waiting for? Get in Community. And let us know if we can help.

Go Northshore Projects

This summer many of our small groups are partnering with local organizations to serve our community. If you’d like to be a part of one of these serving opportunities, email Tim Burke for details on how to get involved.

What is a Small Group?

Small Groups are typically 6-13 people who gather together regularly in homes to meaningfully connect with God and each other. 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.


Recovery/Support Groups

Everybody needs a place for help, encouragement and support when life is not working and disillusionment sets in. Maybe you’re repeating destructive patterns, have tried to change and nothing seems to work. Or you have just lost a loved one and need help walking through your grief. Maybe you are recently divorced and could use some perspective and support. Our recovery and support groups provide safe places of care. We have new groups starting in June 2014.


Sunday Groups At Northshore

We offer two groups specifically to help married couples and parents of teens connect at a convenient time on Sunday mornings at Northshore. The POTS (Parents of Teens) gathering meets at 9:30 am in Room 141 and the Marrieds class meets at 11 am in Room 210. You will experience small group relationships, accountability, and be challenged to serve locally and globally; just as all of Northshore’s small groups experience. For more info, contact either or
