PLAN A VISIT





No, really, you are welcome here.

We know visiting a new church can be intimidating — but you don't have to feel that way with us. You may have never attended a church before or you may have been worshipping your whole life — either way, you are welcome at Northminster. You're welcome here because we are all on a journey — we're exploring who Jesus is and why He matters. So, if you have questions about Jesus, have walked away from the faith or are skeptical about all of this church-stuff, we want to meet you. And if you have trusted Jesus for a lifetime and want to find a family to belong to, we are here for you, too. 

Here's what to expect when you visit.

As you walk into the lobby at Northminster, you'll see people of all ages: families carrying young children, teenagers chatting with each other, friends catching up and warm greetings. Some of us wear our jeans and some of us wear our "Sunday clothes."  But you're welcome to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. You can grab a cup of coffee and a donut in the lobby — and when you enter the sanctuary, sit wherever you like.  Our worship services will have contemporary worship songs prayers, and teaching from the Bible. Our beliefs page will tell you a little more about why we think worship is important.


Connecting with one another is our goal.

We really want to get to know you, so Sunday mornings are designed to give us opportunities to connect. We have time for coffee, donuts and conversation in the lobby before and after services. We also have space during the worship service for you to meet people seated around you. At the end of each pew there is a friendship pad where you can tell us your name and any information you are comfortable sharing and we'll make sure to follow-up with you right away.

Kids and teenagers are always welcome, too.

We know parents have a lot of questions about what their children will experience on a Sunday morning. For nursery-age children, care is available all morning long and all of our nursery workers are trained and certified.  For Preschool through 5th grade, KidZone begins at 10am. You can learn more about it here. For students 6th–12th grade, there are middle and high school Faith Training classes beginning at 10am. If you have any questions, just find the orange cart to the left of the sanctuary.
