Worship

Sunday Worship 9:30am and 6:00pm
Wednesday Night Summer Series 6:30pm
Sunday morning service streamed on Facebook and YouTube.

We are an independent, non-denominational congregation who follow Jesus, we listen to the guidance of the Bible and we actively serve God in the world. We are not perfect, but we are united in our belief that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, that He is at work in our city, through our church and in your life, too. We hope that you will be our guest and worship God with us this Sunday at NorthWest. Our door is open to you, and we hope you will feel welcome. We'd love for you to make this your church home.

Hey Dad

The Lord's prayer was given to us by the Son of God. Does it mean anything to you?

Sun, Jul 25th

One God and Father of All

God had a secret plan for the world (he still has this plan today, but it is not a secret any more). What is that secret plan? What does he want YOU (and all the rest of us) to do about it? Join us today as we explore how it is so important that there is "one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all."

Sun, Jul 18th

Led to Water, Washed with Blood

Throughout the story of Scripture, we see God repeatedly leading His people to, in and through water. One of the ways we experience this still to this day is baptism. 

Sun, Jul 11th

Will "Dry Bones" Rise Again? Experiencing One Faith in Reconciliation

The ancient prophet Ezekiel promised Israel to enliven their dead, dry bones with the breath of the Holy Spirit. The apostle Paul revealed the mystery of reconciliation for all cultures and races - through the Gospel. 

Sun, Jul 4th

Gods At War

This week in our "One" series is the topic of "one lord." Other translations from various languages around the world and even in history also translate this as "master." Even dating back to Mount Sinai, God has always desired to be more than just a checklist and more than our first of many. God wants to be our one and only. 

Sun, Jun 27th

Anchored

Hope is something that is often neglected but it is always necessary in each of our lives. Let us today in worship remember and praise what our true blessed hope is.

Sun, Jun 20th

Breathe Together

The next theme in our "One" series is one Spirit. The word "Spirit" translated from the greek also means "breath." We see this as an invitation not only to be united in one Spirit and one body, but also an invitation to breathe together as one.

Sun, Jun 13th

Individually Together

One body, many parts is often easier said than done. Today we will search for what Paul really means when he discusses the body of Christ. 

Sun, Jun 6th

Unity's Pursuit

For some time now, we have cried out for unity. This goes for our nation and also for our own church as well as other churches across our country. While everyone wants unity to some degree, not everyone is willing to do what it takes. 

Sun, May 30th

The Cloud

Today is our senior Sunday honoring those seniors that stuck it out over this very challenging year and graduated. In our message we will take some time to focus and remember just who our cloud of witnesses are.

Sun, May 23rd

Marriage is Mission

Marriage is hard. There's no such thing as a healthy marriage that hasn't had some struggles at times. This is why we are called to love our spouses in a special way. Marital love isn't a feeling, it's a choice. 

Sun, May 16th

Hello, I'm Adopted

Everybody comes from somewhere. Epic novels and larger than life films have been dedicated to origin stories to satisfy our cultural craving to know where individuals or groups come from. But what if what you have been given was more important that where you originated?

Sun, May 9th

Magnificat

Today is nationally celebrated as Mother's Day, a day in which mothers are honored in so many ways. This morning, we'll be taking a look at one of the more famousmothers in scripture, Mary the mother of Jesus.

Sun, May 2nd

Love God? Of Course I Do!

Jesus tells us that the greatest commandment is to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Of course, I do! He's God! But, what does that really mean? How do I actually do that? I'm a good person, I go to church, and I help others. Isn't that enough?

Sun, Apr 25th

The Glory of God

The Bible is filled with Praises, Proclamations and Demonstrations of the Glory of God. We will spend time in worship today listening and acting upon this great truth. May our hearts be ever open and our mind ever sensing the Spirit's movement as we worship the Almighty.

Sun, Apr 18th

Reconciliation

Join us this morning as we look at the reconciliation of Jesus and Peter. John 21:15-25

Sun, Apr 11th

Together

There is value in being alone, especially in hearing the voice of God. However, we also have the opportunity to encounter Him together.

Sun, Apr 4th

Death Was Overwhelmed

The tomb is empty! Christ is risen from the dead! Today is a special where we celebrate with our brothers and sisters around the world the risen Savior Jesus. No matter who we are or what we have done, our Messiah has given His life for us and he has defeated the grave on our behalf.

Sun, Mar 28th

The God Who Saves

This Sunday is traditionally regarded as "Palm Sunday" commemorating the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The people who cheered for Jesus as He entered were actually making a grand declaration in addition to the plea for his power and blessing over them.

Sun, Mar 21st

The God Who is Worthy

God is worthy. Does our life reflect that by the praise we give? Let's stop and listen today to the word of God and the example of praise given to us inside of it.

Sun, Mar 14th

The God Who Listens

At times our actions, our words, and our lives can feel irrelevant. This morning we will discuss our God that speaks to each of our lives and says the exact opposite of that.

Sun, Mar 7th

The God Who Speaks

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. God literally SPOKE all creation into existence. This speaking is what drives all things to this day. This speaking that created the cosmos is the same that speaks quietly into our hearts and vibrantly through our failures.

Sun, Feb 7th

Light and Love

Two very major themes in all of John's writings are themes that we are probably familiar with: light and love. How do these two concepts blend together and what does it look like when this happens?

Sun, Jan 31st

Rise Up As A Light to the Nations

The past month we have listened and prayed over how we might Rise Up through the power of the Holy Spirit - at home, in the church, and in the community around us. Today, we want to listen to the Holy Spirit as we reflect about how we might Rise Up on the international scene.

Sun, Jan 24th

Rise Up in the Community

What does it mean to go out into the world and especially into our community? When we go out and serve, what is the difference between us and an atheist doing the exact same thing? The answer is simple: we go in the name of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Sun, Jan 17th

Rise Up In Church

Are we approaching God's church as those who are called to Rise up?

Sun, Jan 3rd

Rise Up

This morning we launch our new focus for 2021! We are the church and this coming year, we plan on acting on that declaration. This morning, we plan on talking about some things that we hope for this to look like.

Sun, Dec 20th

Everlasting Father of Joy

Isaiah describes Jesus as the "everlasting father." The term father has a variety of meanings to different people and this is largely based on what your relationship was/is like with your own earthly father. Isaiah promises a father who overcomes all dysfunctionality and places joy in our hearts.

Sun, Dec 13th

Wonderful Counselor

The arrival of Jesus marks the arrival of our Wonderful Counselor, What does this mean? Today we will discuss this and the radical impact He wants to make in our lives.

Sun, Dec 6th

Peaceable Kingdom

God long ago promised peace among enemies. His people have always waited. Join us this month as we celebrate the coming of God's peace offering - his son, Emmanuel, Messiah, Jesus, the Christ.

Sun, Nov 29th

Delivered Together

God has always watched over His people. A very major theme in His provision for His people both now and in the Old Testament, was that He watched over them as a whole. We are delivered together.



Sun, Nov 22nd

Delivered By Grace

Why did God use plagues to deliver his people? This week we study what it means that God is Lord over everything.

Sun, Nov 15th

Delivered from Ourselves

We all have a deep seeded question within us that we ask God and ourselves: Who am I? This morning we will look at Moses asking God just that question and then see how Jesus knew His own identity and continues to form our identity to look more like him.

Sun, Oct 18th

The Storm

The year 2020 has been a pretty miserable one for just about everyone. There's been a pandemic, mass quarantine, political unrest, and a slew of other issues and events that have caused an immense amount of stress on just about everyone. We have felt a loss on a number of levels in a loss of our routine, a loss in being able to meet together for a large portion of the year, a loss of major events, and some of us have lost people whom we held so dear.

Sun, Oct 4th

You Say You Want a Revolution?

Revolution is a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system. Revolutions of various kinds and degrees have occurred throughout history, and they are unsettling. Some say one or more cultural revolutions are occurring currently. Some Christians are asking how we should respond. My question is …

Sun, Sep 27th

The Power to Live as One

We've studied this passage several times and noted that Christians are to be unified, like-minded, not selfish or conceited but humbly putting others ahead of us. Both the world and the church desperately need to see people doing this, especially right now. We know our responsibility, but where do we get the power to live this way?

Sun, Sep 20th

Spiritual Wisdom

Life is especially complex right now, and we are in great need of wisdom. In Scripture, however, wisdom is not cleverness nor even knowing what to do. Rather, it is …

Another Key to Prevent Drifting

Healthy Habits for Handling Hardships

I am struggling quite a bit, off and on, and all that is going on in our nation and world makes matters much more difficult. But I was blessed this morning when I remembered that the people who received the book of Hebrews were also facing hardships, and I was helped when I then re-read the divine advice in the book that encourages us ...

Sun, Aug 16th

Changing the World like Jesus

We noted last week that the world is terribly broken. Jesus encountered many broken people in his day as well. He taught us how to view them and showed us what they need.

Sun, Aug 9th

Momentous Announcement

By the time Jesus came to earth, Satan held virtually dominated mankind. Everywhere his the devastating effect of his tyrannical rule was apparent. But in Jesus God launched an invasion into Satan's kingdom that changed the course of human history. It all began with a simple but momentous announcement, a proclamation of good news:
