Classes and LIFE Groups

Northlake Campus:  Adult Formation
9:00 – 10:00 am

Sharing Faith in Families:  Inspiration for developing faith practices within our families.    Facilitators: Brian and Page Ikeda, Room 205.    Extending faith to our own families can be daunting. Mature Northlake couples share with younger couples their personal experiences supporting their family’s spiritual development and journey. If you are newly married or raising children, this is a great opportunity to gather ideas, inspire your own practices, and learn something new about your Northlake family members!

Scripture Discussion Class:  Parallels between the Book of James and the Sermon on the Mount.   Facilitators: Various, the Chapel.   The epistle James, often referred to as the “Proverbs of the New Testament”, speaks to how Christians are to live out the ideals that Jesus described in His Sermon on the Mount.

Small Group study of  the Gospel of Matthew:   Facilitators: Various, the Living Room (downstairs).  “The Living Room” class consists of those who share their lives, read books, and study scripture together with MUCH discussion; group meets in the Living Room downstairs.

Sundays Evenings at 6:00 p.m.

“Summer at the ‘Lake”   Fun, inspirational, and family events are planned throughout the summer! See the schedule of activities at

Practicing the Art of Community

LIFE Groups – Sundays, 6:00-7:00pm (September – May)

In today’s disjointed culture, it’s more important than ever that God’s people learn to live in community.  All of us who seek to follow Jesus are looking for places where we can be loved, nurtured, accepted and encouraged by fellow believers. God has created us to live in community.

 We invite you to commit to an incoming LIFE Group—a small group of Christians dedicating themselves to learning the ways of Jesus and reflecting these practices in their daily lives.  Contact LIFE Group Coordinators Stewart Smith at or Jeff Hendrick at for more information. 

Northlake Campus 
7:00 – 8:00 PM

The work week can be hectic, and that’s one reason why we like to pause in the middle of it and spend an hour together in study, prayer, and worship. All of our Wednesday night classes meet on Northlake’s campus, and we offer a variety of options, from book studies to children and youth activities, to informal Bible discussion groups.

Summer Wednesday Evenings  


Women’s Bible Class:  James, Mercy Triumphs, by Beth Moore.  Facilitator:  Sharron Zee, Room 204.  This inspiring study from James, the brother of Jesus, is enriched by a workbook and videos, followed by group discussion.


Book Club: “Younger Next Year” by Chris Crowley & Dr. Henry Lodge.  Facilitator: Neal Stubblefield, Room 205.   Authors give an intensive & hilarious look at aging & living well as we age. Supported by scriptures such as 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, this study will appeal most to mid-lifers and beyond.  Class meets from June 11-Aug 27.

Women’s Prayer & Discussion Group:   Facilitator:  Susan Tippins, Room 203.   Women of all ages assemble each week to be a part of this discussion group centered on prayer, mutual support, and application of biblical truths drawn from the weekly sermon texts.

Men’s Prayer & Discussion Group:  Facilitators rotate, the Forum.   Men of all ages are a part of this rich time of prayer, reading and discussion centered on the scripture passage of the week.  They ask, “What is there in this text for us to obey?”
