Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be awkward (at least for all of the introverts reading this), and going to a new church for the first time can be even more awkward. We want to help make sure your first time at Northwest Youth is awesome!
Who we are
Here's the deal, Northwest Youth cares about one thing more than anything else, you. That's why we do what we do. Our mission & vision is that we exist to empower students (you!) to influence their world by developing leaders who are fully devoted followers of Jesus.
What's the point?
Northwest youth, above all else, is built to be a family for anyone who walks in, to include, welcome, & accept anyone. That is our heart. To help people understand what it means to be a part of a family that is defined by God's love. Love is what changes the world. Love starts revolutions. God's love transforms lives. We just want people to know that kind of love.
What does this mean for you?
Most importantly, you're always welcome at Northwest Youth. It doesn't matter if you call yourself a "Christian" or if you have never been to church before. We would love to hang out and get to know you. Just know this, you'll always be accepted as part of our family.
When & where is it?
We hang out twice a week, for our weekend experience & for community groups.
Weekend Experience: Our weekend experience is Sunday at 6pm. We meet as one big family, 6th grade through 12th grade, for an hour or so. We will get together and hang out, play a game, sing a few songs, and then talk about what it means to live life with Jesus.
Community Groups: On Wednesdays at 7pm, we have community groups. Community groups split up high school and middle school and we spend an hour getting to know each other and then having conversations about what we talked about on Sunday (It's okay if you weren't there, join us anyways!). We have all felt at some point like all this God stuff is made-up, bogus, & doesn't actually affect us. Life groups give us a chance to talk about it, talk about the real struggles that we are facing and how God really can make a difference.
Northwest Youth meets at Northwest Church
What can I expect?
Both Sundays & Wednesdays are right about an hour long. We know you have a busy schedule with sports, clubs, friends, family, & homework (everyone's favorite part of life), so we try our very best to make sure you get out on time. Of course, before and after many of us will stay and hang out which you are always free to join us for!
Do I need to dress a certain way or do anything before I come? We love you just as you are, so come wearing whatever you feel comfortable in. No matter what, we can't wait to meet you!
