Small groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren't always easy to find. That's why small groups exist - to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

At Northside, there are several kinds of groups:
  • Life-Stage Groups are opportunities to connect with people who share a common life-stage (singles, young mothers, senior citizens, etc.).
  • Interest Groups connect people with others who enjoy a particular hobby or subject.
  • Service Groups are people who regularly serve together to meet a particular need.
  • Growth Groups are small groups of men and women that meet in homes for two 12-week semesters a year. They have a discussion based on the Sunday AM message and/or go through a discussion-based DVD series together. Most of these groups meet on Sunday nights in homes.
