What to Expect
Northway has been called the smallest big church you’ll ever attend! It has that small church feel with big church excellence and vision. The building is nestled in the woods and one side of the sanctuary is solid glass looking out into the forest, providing a warm and peaceful atmosphere. Our ethnically diverse congregation is super friendly and are sure to make you feel right at home. You’ll see folks dressed in super casual clothes all the way up their Sunday finest, so wear what feels right for you.
Sundays @ 9:15 AM
If you’ve got kids, be sure to come at 9:15 so they can be a part of The Northway Adventure Company. Loving teachers and leaders will challenge your children with bible stories and plenty of fun and interactive games and crafts. If your child is between first and sixth grade, they’ll get a free Adventure Company backpack with plenty of goodies inside, including some free Adventure Beads for the Adventure Co. Bead Necklace. Beads are earned every week for attendance, bringing bibles and guests, doing work at home with a special tool called the Disciple Making Guide and much more. Once a month, we open The Adventure Company Trading Post where your kids can cash in their beads for all kinds of fun toys and prizes.
Students 7th-12th grades meet at 9:15 in The Cave where they explore the bible together every week. (By the way, our students also hang out together later in the day for Sunday Night Launch. That’s at 5:30 each week.)
A few of our adult Small Groups meet at 9:15 so if you bring your kids, slip into the worship center for a young adult bible study or hang out on the veranda for coffee, doughnuts, and fellowship. A ladies group and senior adult group meet at that time as well. Click HERE for more info on Small Groups.
Sundays @ 10:30 AM
At 10:30 your students will join the adults in the worship center. Your kids (kindergarten and up) will have their own Kid’s Worship Time, except for the first Sunday of the month when your 1st through 6th graders join the adults in the Worship Center for Family Sunday.
Speaking of the worship celebration, the service lasts about 75 minute. Our worship music features music for all generations. From updated classic hymns as well as current generation hymns, to today’s most dynamic praise music, you’ll find our music is not too edgy and loud, but it’s not old and stale either!
You’ll find the preaching to be very Scripture oriented and intentionally practical with plenty of real-world application.
Your kindergarteners and preschoolers will love our Preschool Ministry. They’ll get a free backpack and Adventure Tokens on their first Sunday. Throughout the month, they’ll earn Adventure Tokens to spend at the Adventure Co. Trading post on the last Sunday of the month. Preschool Bible Study starts at 9:15 and then they move to more crafts and activities based on the morning bible story during the 10:30 worship hour.
