I'm New to Northwest Church
How We Gather.
Nothing beats the act of gathering--it’s how the first church began, and it opens the door to growing in relationship with God and with each other. We’re a community that’s committed to gathering every Sunday to encounter God, get restored through the Cross, worship in the Spirit, and be refreshed by His Word.
Choose from two, identical services on Sunday mornings: 9:30am and 11am. Be sure to arrive early, whether it’s to enjoy hand-crafted coffee from our Coffee Bar or to sign in your littles to the Nursery. If it’s your first time, look for one of our Welcome Team members and let them know so they can help you get acclimated. Can’t make it? Watch online via our LiveStream or Facebook LIVE.
9:15am Coffee Bar // 9:30am Worship
WHAT TO EXPECT
Our Coffee Bar opens 15 minutes before each service so you can enjoy a hot cup o’ joe and meet new friends. We typically begin our service with a couple announcements, then we get right into worship. We like to enjoy the worship experience, and a few of us get pretty enthusiastic (ie moving hands and feet). After worship, we release the kids ages 5-12 to NorthwestKIDS then get right into the Sermon with one of our teaching pastors.
We recommend you get here early if you have littles. Your kids ages 0-4 years of age (infants-preschoolers) can be signed in before each service to our safe and secure Nursery. Bring the older ones ages 5+ with you to experience our live band worship experience...our kids love worship and are often found at the front dancing their hearts out! (And don’t worry, kids ages 5-12 years get to run to NorthwestKIDS in the Chapel before the Sermon time. We recommend you go with them the first time to get them signed in.)
If you’re new to Northwest or maybe you’ve been attending for a while and want to learn more about who we are as a church, join us every Sunday morning for Northwest Growth Track. The weekly Growth Track is made up of two 1-hour experiences designed to help you grow in your relationship with God, connect to the church, and reach your full potential. During the Growth Track experiences, you’ll learn about our beliefs, our leadership, how we handle money, and how we intentionally organize our church. You’ll also get to take a personality profile and spiritual gifts assessment that will help you uncover how your unique design points you toward your purpose. You’re free to attend one or both ‘Discover Our Church’ and ‘Discover Your Place’ experiences, with each one occurring every other Sunday.
How We Grow.
God created us to grow in our faith, in our character and in our gifts, because it’s His will that we live life to the full. Personal growth happens best when we are in relationship with others who are growing too. There are many opportunities here for personal and spiritual growth for all ages, from small groups to youth nights to classes and events.
How We Go.
It’s what Jesus’ disciples did once they were filled with the Holy Spirit, and it’s what each of us is called to do: to use our unique passions and gifting to love and serve others. Something amazing happens when we offer up our lives to become a vessel of blessing.
