Northlake LIFE GROUPS
Doing life together!
There is still room for you in a Life Group
Sign up for a Winter 2014 LIFE GROUP
What is a LIFE GROUP?
At Northlake we believe ‘church’ is more than Sunday mornings. We need a place to connect on a smaller scale where we can get to know and care for each other. LIFE GROUPS are the opportunity to grow spiritually, build relationships, share common interests and have fun.
It is about DOING LIFE TOGETHER where DISCIPLES are MAKING DISCIPLES.
When do LIFE GROUPS start?
Winter 2014 LIFE GROUPS start the week of January 6, 2014. Most of the LIFE GROUPS are a short commitment of about 12 weeks. You will want to join a LIFE GROUP.

#TH5 DRAMA & THE CHURCH

The church has often been at odds with drama. We will discover some good reasons why this is so, but also talk about how drama can aid the church’s ministry and yours. Along the way, we will read and experience many compelling passages of drama written for the church and/or by Christians.
#SA1 SEW MANY BLESSINGS
Facilitator: Judy Knickerbocker
Meets Every Other Saturday from 9:30am – 2:30pm
Women & Young Adults: Because the Lord gave us his best, we give our best to His children.
If you can sew, join us. We can teach you to quilt if you don't yet know how. If you cannot sew but want to be part of our Life Group, please partner with us for supplies and prayers. We want these children to feel the Lord's love when they are wrapped up in their new quilt. We make quilts for Safe Place, a transitional short term shelter for children removed in emergency situations such as abuse, neglect, drug raids, etc., and we also make quilts for Camp Korey, a camp for children with serious and life-altering medical conditions.
And we have fun!
You will need a sewing machine, sewing supplies.
