Connect Groups

We believe real life change happens in the context of authentic relationships, which is why we focus a large portion of our discipleship and fellowship within our connect groups. In the New Testament we see that they worshiped in the Temple, but also met in small groups in their homes. This is how they received and understood the teachings of the Apostles and how they were able to get connected with other believers in the Church.  

A connect group is an intentional gathering of people who meet regularly. Since God designed us for relationships, we believe it is through the connections made in these groups that God will help us grow. People form groups around what matters in their lives. This can look like connecting with people who share similar interests or are at the same stage in life as well as finding people who have experience in an area in which you want to grow. Connect groups are also where we pray for each other and support each other. Connect groups meet at different times during the week or month at Northside and in locations all around our community, and with many groups to choose from, we believe there is a group out there for you. Watch the website and our Sunday program for Connect Group schedule and availability.
