Adult Small Groups


Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.  Ephesians 4:15-16

At Northwest Community Church, we exist to help people passionately pursue life-changing relationships with God, each other, and our world.  Really growing in relationship with God and people takes more than a Sunday morning worship service.  That’s why we encourage every adult at Northwest to be involved with a small group.  For when God said, “It is not good for man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18), He really meant it.

Our Care Groups are coed adult small groups that meet at various times and locations for 1 – 2 hours (weekly or biweekly).  They include fellowship, discussion of the Bible or a Christian book, and prayer. Some groups include additional components (hangouts, service projects, accountability, etc.).

Care Groups are a place where you can build healthy friendships that encourage spiritual growth. They are a place where you can learn more about the Bible and be encouraged to apply it to everyday life. They are a place where you can honestly share your struggles and take them to God in prayer.

Jeff Harrison, our Pastor of Family Ministries, would love to answer any questions and help you get connected with a Care Group. We have groups with openings on Sunday evening, Wednesday evening, and Friday morning (for seniors only).


Northwest offers additional opportunities to grow spiritually in a small group setting.
