We want you to get connected with your church family. We are better together.
God has uniquely created each one of us. By doing the journey of life together, we get to know each other and to accept, help, challenge, and celebrate each other. Living in community helps us find out who we are and where we belong!

Each week we’ll release a new resource that you can download and reference during the life group session. If you’d like to listen to the sermon from the previous Sunday for reference, you can do that on our Sermons page.
When we become more intentional about developing and sharpening our spiritual life skills, we will experience deeper levels of growth. Here at Northend we have a number of Life Group options that provide great opportunities to help transform us into fully devoted followers of Christ who will have a great impact on our community and beyond. Transformation begins with you and I. Are you ready?
“Instead, we will hold to the truth in love, becoming more and more in every way like Christ, who is the head of His body, the church. Under His direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” Ephesians 4:15, 16 (NLV)
It can be easy to just “do church” on Sundays and never connect with the people sitting around you. But we were not meant to do life alone. God created us to live in community – with Him, and with each other! We thrive when we spend time in a life group of like-minded people. Just as the health and life of a plant is dependent on the soil its roots are anchored to, we grow when we experience the true, life-giving, spirit-enhancing love that comes by connecting with each other!
God created us for community. Just as healthy plants are more adaptable and resilient when exposed to the elements, we are strengthened by time spent together. Developing trust-filled relationships help us measure how we are doing, and give us a network of friends who cheer us on, and come alongside when life gets challenging.
As Christ-followers, we long to become more like Him. Jesus prayed that we would continually grow in oneness with Him and with each other. Spending time together helps us cultivate and enrich our faith because God has gifted each one of us differently. Just as soil provides a plant with many essential elements to help it grow, God uses what we learn from each other to help transform us into fully devoted followers of Christ, who make a difference in our world, one person at a time!
We are BETTER TOGETHER.

Life Groups are usually 5-12 people, who meet all over the Niagara region on different days of the week. Most of the groups meet in a host home and the group runs for about 10 weeks in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. This leaves room for changes in schedules and also changes in groups if you feel the need to. All the groups follow the same curriculum, which is usually based on the current sermon series.
You can now sign up for the Winter Season of Life Groups which will start in January 2020 and run until Easter.
If you have any questions about Life Groups, please contact us.
