At NorthPointe we want to follow Jesus' example in every way that we can. As we look through the gospels we see three things:
Jesus preached to the masses
That is one reason we meet together every week to talk about God's Word and Scripture. As Jesus shared the good news and ways of God, His Father, we want to do that as well. Take a look at our Sunday Service page to learn more about what you can expect every week with us.
But, that is not all we do as a body of believers and seekers, and you'll be missing out if your involvement stops there.
Jesus had His 12 disciples
When we read the story of Jesus' life, we also see that He called a few to walk with Him and learn from Him and participate in His ministry on earth. As the twelve spent time with Him, they saw how He lived, learned what was important in life through His teaching and actions, and got to see the difference Jesus could make in the world around them in His interactions with those that came to Him.
In our community groups, we want you to be able to meet with normal, imperfect people who want to talk freely about who Jesus is and what it means to live faith out. It's a safe place to ask questions, to confront what is happening in your life, and find a community of people to join you in our walk with God, no matter where you are in the journey. These groups are a great way to connect with others in the church, get your feet wet in a proverbial way, and find folks to encourage you and be there for you in the ups and downs we come across in life.
So, please take a look at our Community Groups Page and learn more about how you can join one near you.
Jesus had the three
Finally, we see Jesus spending more time with three of those twelve disciples, Peter, James, and his brother John. We want smaller groups of men, women, or couples with couples, to be in conversation about who Jesus us and having accountability in living it out. Just as the disciples walked with Jesus and saw His every day life, discipleship and mentoring needs to happen the same way. Whether its over a book and some coffee, watching the kids play together, or for lunch, we need to be spending time and sharing with one another on a more personal level, we need to be discipled, and we need to disciple. So, find a mentor!
