We recognize that there are various stages of life in which each adult finds themselves. Our desire is to equip you to walk through your particular life stage while making an impact on the world around you. We minister to men and women, singles and couples, knowing that the body of Christ is most effective when each one is pursuing a deeper relationship with Jesus and looking to Him to be the author and finisher of our faith.
Grace for the Afflicted
Mental Illness can be one of those things we don’t want to talk about, especially in the church. However, statistics suggest that one in every four people suffers from some form of mental illness. NorthPoint desires to be a community of grace and healing for those who struggle and we believe that the gospel affects every area of our lives. Join us for a four week class beginning Sunday morning April 7, presented by mental health professionals, to help us better understand adult & pediatric illnesses including Depression, Anxiety, ADD and Suicide and to learn how we can love our neighbors and our brothers and sisters in Christ who suffer.

Our culture is constantly telling us that we can achieve anything we set our mind to. But what if we were never intended to be self-sufficient? This year’s teaching will focus on finding our satisfaction in God and relying on Him for everything we need. The live simulcast will be taught by David Platt, and is a one night event that will be hosted in homes. Small groups are encouraged to gather together for this amazing teaching time, and you can also register individually on our website. There is no cost for this event and snacks will be provided. No childcare is available.
