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.

What are the most important teachings of our faith as followers of Jesus? In times of transition--and always--it is vitally important to keep focused on what Jesus and the apostles emphasized.

Sun, Jul 3rd

What Time Did You Come?

Have you been a follower of Christ all your life? If so, you probably are grateful for the blessings that come with that commitment. Do you expect special treatment because of your faith? Do you know people who have come to Christ later in life, perhaps from a lifestyle not consistent with your values? Do you wonder if you have special privileges or wonder what's in it for you over against the late comers?

Sun, Jun 26th

Gracious Generosity

"Why Are You Standing Here?"

We live in a world of anxiousness, uncertainty, complexity and in some sense despair/hopelessness. And, whether we want to admit it or not we sometimes allow these emotions to creep into our lives at times because of the situations/circumstances in which we find ourselves. If we allow these emotions to affect our decision making and conduct we will become spiritually paralyzed and more than likely "give up."

Sun, May 29th

Unity, The Hard Way

Unity at times seems so hard or distant that it feels impossible. the truth is we cannot achieve it for anyone else but ourselves.

Eat This Book

We have spent the last couple of weeks discussing what scripture is and how we use it. We want to be very intentional not just on whether or not we are reading the Bible but HOW we are reading the Bible. How are we letting the word of God affect us? Is it simply a giant rule of life manual or is it something more?

Sun, Mar 20th

That's Me

Jesus told over 30 parables in his short time walking on this side of heaven. Why is it that

The Food That Gives Life

Commonly we are asking people how they are or being asked how we are. Do we listen to the response?
