The Adult Discipleship ministry at Northside offers Sunday school classes, weekday Bible studies, and spiritual formation opportunities for adults at every stage of their journey with Christ.
We have various Sunday School classes that tackle issues of faith in the contemporary world, engage Sunday’s sermon to unearth real-world application, and consider biblically and doctrinally based answers to deep questions of faith. Some studies are lecture-based while others are lay-led and more informal. All of our classes promote open discussion, friendship, and growth. There’s something for adults of every age!
The Adult Discipleship ministry offers weekday Bible and discipleship classes, a reoccurring faith and film series, and various book studies designed to provide a fresh injection of God’s Word throughout the week. Led by Northside’s Director of Adult Discipleship, James Johnson, classes marry a wealth of knowledge with laid-back discussions on faith, theology, and biblical truths.
The journey of a disciple is fraught with mountains and valleys of faith, a long path with many twists and turns. It is not one that should be ventured alone. Indeed, without the encouragement and support of fellow disciples, the journey is impossible. The Disciple Bible study program offered here at Northside provides the perfect atmosphere for forming and developing community along the path to becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ, through an in-depth study of Scripture.
Looking to connect with fellow men walking a similar path? Men’s Ministry offers daily small groups, Bible studies, and men’s gatherings designed to promote fellowship, strengthen relationships, and equip men with Biblical truths and application to become better fathers, husbands, sons, and disciples.
The McDonald Memorial Library has played a vital role in the life of Northside Church since 1957 and is designed for use by all ages of the Northside family. The extensive inventory of more than 3500 items ranges from children’s books to sermon recordings, from teaching materials to guides on how to deal with death and loss. We are constantly adding to this inventory based on the recommendations of the Library Committee and the church’s Education Department. We welcome the donation of new books in honor or memory of a loved one or friend.
The purpose of Northside’s library is to provide its members with the best religious, devotional, denominational, and Christian reference as possible within the limits of its funding and available space. Its goal is to support all ages in their search for spiritual growth and development. In addition, the library provides materials for the wholesome use of leisure time for enrichment of personal lives.
The McDonald Library is located on the first floor of the church directly under the Parlor, between the Preschool and the Music Department. It is most easily accessed via the elevator (take elevator to first floor, turn left, then an immediate left down the hallway—the library entrance will be on your left). You may also take the stairs from the Narthex down to the first floor. You would then turn left and the library will be on your right.
Each semester we offer a variety of Bible studies for women of all ages and stages of life. Our Bible studies serve as a way for women in our church to build community through information and encouragement. Many of our studies meet in homes, which provides a warm and nurturing environment to study God’s word.
