WHAT IS A SMALL GROUP?

Gathering weekly for fellowship and accountability, study and prayer, good times and tears, Northbridge Small Group Bible Studies are an essential expression of our church’s mission.

At the heart of the Small Groups ministry is the desire to see a community of believers who worship Jesus, love one another, and embody the mission of Northbridge to make disciples. God has called us to a continuous lifestyle of worship and relationship with Himself, which is cultivated and nurtured within the body of Christ. The Church is a people. It is a gift of God. At Northbridge, these groups are the place where discipleship and care takes place. It is where we encourage one another to be worshipers of our Lord. It is where the body becomes the body, loving, caring and challenging one another. As well, it is within community that we engage culture and incarnate Jesus in the nooks and crannies of our city. We were created to worship Jesus in community in the Image of our Creator, who Himself exists in community.

It is our desire to see every member of Northbridge loved, cared for, and challenged within a thriving community. And it is our desire that our neighbors within this city are blessed and touched by the love of Jesus through the lives of our members.

I AM NEW HERE… AM I READY FOR A SMALL GROUP?

A small group is a gathering of people from the church that get together weekly to share life and support one another.

Life is hard. It was never meant to be lived in isolation.

Community is a gift of God intended to help us see and experience the good news of Jesus in profound and tangible ways. If you are new to the church this the perfect place for you to belong, ask questions, and wrestle with your faith in a community of people who care for you, not because your life is together, but because you are created in the image of God. It is within community that we exist as true family in a time when the concept of a loving and caring family can seem foreign. It is a place where we encourage and challenge one another in our journey to know Jesus in deeper and more personal ways. In small groups, people talk through life issues, pray together, laugh together, struggle together, and serve others as we are transformed by the grace of God in our lives.
