Connect to a Group

Live in community with a spirit of unity

At Northside, we strive to live in community with the spirit of unity! We believe that life is best done together. In our groups, you will connect with one another, make new friends, grow in your faith and have fun. Our groups are places for you to find support and to recover from life as you talk through life issues, eat, pray, laugh and serve others together.

Life Groups

Connect in community by joining a Life Group. Our adult life groups meet throughout the week in the greater Springfield area. Groups will begin the week of September 10!

Ladies Bible Study

Featuring small group breakout sessions and worship, our Ladies Bible Study runs from September to April on both Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings. Our next Ladies Bible Study will begin in September. They will be studying Kristi McLelland’s “The Gospel on the Ground.”


Connect with God, the church and your purpose

Rooted is a simple and proven method to make disciples. Rooted isn’t simply a Bible study or a book. It is a community experience where you will practice seven rhythms that will help you connect to God, the church and your purpose in God’s story. Rooted will last 11 weeks with 11 gatherings on your small group night, 2 extra group experiences and a Celebration service at the end of the 11 weeks. Click the link below for details about our next Rooted session.


Wednesdays at 6 p.m. beginning Sept. 13

A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief.

Student Life Groups

Sundays from 5:30-7:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 10

In Life Groups, our goal is for students to experience Christian community within a small group of their peers who are the same gender and age. We place adult mentors who are absolutely committed to loving our students and taking them into a deeper relationship with God as they do life together.
