Group Life is a place for connection and growing in your faith.  Whether you are just starting to ask serious spiritual questions or have followed Jesus for some time and wish to get a sense of connection with other people in our church, Group Life is a great step for you.

Group Life experiences are generally medium to large gatherings here at the church building where individuals or couples take part in smaller tables of 8-10 people for discussion.

If you have any questions feel free to email Pastor Dawn at dawn@northbridgechurch.org.


STARTING POINT
Wednesdays at 7pm beginning April 11 | Cost: $10

Starting Point is an 8-session small group conversation about faith. Whether you’re new to faith, curious about God, or coming back to church after some time away, it’s a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued, and no question is off limits.

Pastor’s Recommendation: If you have not taken part in Group Life here at NorthBridge in the past, our pastoral team highly recommends that Starting Point be the place you start even if you have been a ‘churchgoer’ for some time.

In 1 Kings 17-19, the bible tells the story of a man who was used greatly by God. Yet the NT calls Elijah a man “just like us”. Is faith instantly available or is a practiced discipline?

THE QUEST (Women’s Group)
Wednesdays at 9am beginning April 4 | Cost: $15
Wednesdays at 7pm beginning April 4 | Cost: $15

The crooked punctuation mark at the end of a sentence speaks of curiosity, interest, and perhaps doubt. A question is an invitation to vulnerability, to intimacy. The Bible does not shy away from such an invite. Over and over we see the people of God asking questions of their Creator. We also see the God of the universe asking questions of His creation.

The Quest is a challenge to accept the invitation. In this six-week excursion with Jesus, Beth Moore uses questions from Scripture to lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best. Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God, and to bring your questions before Him. Let the crooked punctuation mark be the map that points you into a closer relationship with the Father.

– Learn to pray to promote intimacy with God.
– Explore questions and responses from the Bible.
– Track your quest by journaling along the way.
– Learn to read and respond to Scripture.

Lots of people think Christianity is all about doing what Jesus says. But what if doing what Jesus says isn’t what Jesus says to do at all? Jesus’ invitation is an invitation to relationship, and it begins with a simple request: follow me.

Religion says “Change and you can join us.” Jesus says, “Join us and you will change.” There’s a huge difference. Jesus doesn’t expect people to be perfect. He just wants them to follow him. Being a sinner doesn’t disqualify anyone. Being an unbeliever doesn’t disqualify anyone. In fact, following almost always begins with a sinner and unbeliever taking one small step.

In this eight-session video-based Bible study, Andy Stanley takes small groups on a journey through the Gospels as he traces Jesus’ teaching on what it means to follow.

How can we build a home free of manipulation, legalism and shame? Jeff Van Vonderan, who was our speaker this year at Parent University and the author of this book, attempts to answer this question.

God’s job is to fix and our job is to depend on him as we nurture and encourage our families.
 
In this 7 week session we will explore how we can you can build a happy restful home – powered by God’s grace.
