One of our values here at Northbridge Church is that NO ONE STANDS ALONE. This value can only be lived out in loving community—one centered around the person of Jesus Christ, who is actively present with His people.  Here at NorthBridge, we foster real and authentic connection with God and with others  – young and old, married and single, parenting and not. In the context of this kind of community, we can be formed into the persons God created us to be.

Group Life is a place for connection and spiritual growth.  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.

In mid-October, we will have several options for you to choose from both onsite and offsite groups. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Bill Yaccino at (224)259-2122 or email him at bill@northbridgechurch.org


WOMEN’S GROUPS –>  Material – each participant purchases their material

“The Life You Long For” – Wednesdays 6:30pm (NorthBridge / Starting October 27). We live in a culture that’s all about self, becoming the best “me” I can be instead of becoming like Jesus. That message affects every area of our lives–our friendships, our marriages, even our faith–and it breaks each one in different ways. The self-focused life robs our joy, shrinks our souls, and is the reason we never quite break free of insecurity. This study invites us into a bigger, Jesus-centered vision–one that restores our freedom and inspires us to live for more. Anyone yearning for a purpose bigger than “project me” will cherish this paradigm-shifting message of true fulfillment. Register

 

 

“Growing Slow” – Wednesday 9am (NorthBridge / Starting October 20). We want to believe that a slower life is possible, but we’re afraid of what we’ll miss if we don’t keep up the pace. So we bend to the pressure and overlook the gifts of rest and slowness. But what if we could grasp the high reward of good things, grown slow? This group will help you: gain the courage to slow down and enjoy your life uncover surprising truths that will help you grow, even in difficult seasons; lay down burdens you’ve been carrying and receive God’s healing; find value in the good things you are already growing.

“Finding I Am” – Monday 6:30pm (Off-campus / Starting October 18). What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it. Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this in-depth study, you will trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before. Register

 


MEN’S GROUPS 

The Best of ‘No Regrets’ – Tuesdays @ 7pm / Saturdays @ 7:30am. Perhaps you are familiar with the ‘No Regrets’ Men’s Conference every February. If you are not, NB Men have been sending nearly 100 men up to Milwaukee each year to hear and be inspired by the countries best Christian speakers/pastors. During November, the men’s groups will be viewing select “The Best of…” sessions from the past several years. Come to one, come to all. Get connected and grow!

 

“CONQUER” – Tuesdays 7pm (Next Session January 2022): Understanding the battlefield is the first key to winning the war for sexual purity. This powerful teaching series for men, containing ten 30-45 minute long teaching episodes is not just another study tool for men, but a tried and proven battle plan for purity in a world that does not reward God-centered living. (Note: Material is provided on day of first group. Suggested donation $5 per book and study guide)
