To transform youth and into lifelong disciples of Christ.
To reach out to our local community and provide middle schoolers (6th-8th graders) and high schoolers (9th-12th graders) with the knowledge, skills, and values that are necessary in order to make new disciples of Jesus Christ who will reflect His light for the world to see.
"Go and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit
Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.
And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
SUNDAY SCHOOL: 10:45am-11:30am
The worship services at Northwood are family friendly, but the sermons are usually directed at the adults and sometimes the message can go over our youth’s heads. So, each Sunday we get together in the City after the 9:30am Ignite Service and talk about the sermon. This helps us think about what we heard and talk through what was taught so we can understand how we can apply the sermon to our lives. Class is usually done around 11:30am.
CITY NIGHT: 6:30pm-9:00pm
On Mondays at 6:30pm we meet in the Sanctuary and our youth lead worship. We have a really talented youth band and an awesome youth choir. After worship, we sit with our friends in the pews and get a Bible lesson. We’re doing this really cool thing where we’re walking through the entire Bible from cover to cover. It’s going to take us a while, but it’ll be super cool once we get to the end. So, each week we hear a new Bible story, grab our Bibles, and really dig in as we look at history and do word studies so we can understand the story’s context. Then we split up into small groups, eat pizza, ask questions, and talk about how the story applies to our own lives so we can get a better understanding of God and His expectations of us. After small groups we all come together again to play games and hang out until it’s time to go home at 9:00pm.
GAME NIGHT: 7:00pm-10:00pm
We have youth from lots of different schools who get together on Friday nights to hang out and have fun in the City. Some people just chill on the sofas and talk while others play board games, video games, or do crafts. We also have a lot of fun gym activities like soccer, basketball, dodgeball, and hockey. The activities are different each week, so bring a friend and come check it out!
