Growing in your faith is important, and here at Northpark, we want to help you on your Christian journey. It takes more than just attendance at Sunday morning services to grow spiritually, that’s why we provide a wide variety of classes and small groups to help you along the way. We all know that life this side of heaven is tough. We all need coaches and teammates that will encourage and prepare us for the next level. Get involved in a class or small group at Northpark and get to know others on the journey also!
Small Groups, Classes, Bible Studies
Northpark is about more than just Sunday morning church! Northpark You includes all the opportunities we have to get connected and learn throughout the week. There is something for everyone, and we invite you to find a class or group that will help you grow and will take you… beyond Sunday. In addition to the classes listed on this page, you will find classes for these specific groups as well:
Wednesday Night Classes For All Ages

Offered in the Fall and Spring
Next Session: August 28-October 23, 2013

Following the example of Christ, Christians make the public statement of their faith through water baptism. Whether you are a new believer or have been a follower of Jesus for years, we encourage you to take that next step!
We offer a baptism class the third Sunday of every month, with an opportunity to be baptized every fourth Sunday of the month. If you are interested in being baptized or just want to find out more about it, join us for this class!

For information about child baptisms, contact Children’s Pastor Candi Maur.
