Small Groups are the primary way to grow as a disciple of Jesus here at Northwest, and we have a variety of small groups available. All year we have Adult Bible Study and Children’s Sunday School on Sunday mornings during the 9:00 AM hour. And at various times throughout the year, we have quarterly small group classes on offer. Check below for our current offerings.
Fall 2022 Small Groups:
- Leading the Church Forward: A 7-week, all-church study that will examine 7 different New Testament texts about biblical models for local church leadership. This class will run August 21-October 2.
- The Treasure Principle: At Northwest, we want our hearts to be in the right place: A heart that is fully seeking God, filled with love for the lost, and cares for the needs of our church. The Bible offers us some practical ways to check our heart condition. One of those ways is how we think about finances. In fact, Jesus taught more on this subject during his short ministry on earth than any other. He sums up his teaching in Matthew 6:21 – “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”.
Finances can be a tricky and very personal issue. But if we understand the Bible’s principles when it comes to the resources God entrusts to us, we can begin to experience peace and growing faith in our Provider as our hearts line up with God and his Word.
Adding to the good that comes from growing in our own walk with God, there is an increasing need at Northwest to steward the financial resources God has entrusted to us as a congregation and as individuals. Doing this well allows us to continue to minister to our community and the nations.
The Treasure Principle is a four-week, church-wide, video-based study from Randy Alcorn, designed to help us think through these issues. We would love to have every member and regular attender of Northwest connect with one of our small groups for the next month so that we can examine what the Bible says about this topic together.Below is a trailer for the series to give you a better idea of how we will be approaching this important issue in the life of the church:
