"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim the good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn...."

Isaiah 61:1-2

 

Northside Christian Church Care Night promotes health and healing through community.  Care Night is host to healing programs including:  Celebrate Recovery, DivorceCare, GriefShare, Cancer Support, Single & Parenting, Infertility Support, and Surrendering the Secret (healing from the heartbreak of abortion).  It is our hope that Care Night will provide a place for all those who are hurting and broken to find not only a place where “It is okay to not be okay”, but also a place to heal, move forward, and thrive in relationship with Christ and with one another.  If this sounds like what you have been looking for, please come and join us for food, fellowship, worship, and growth.

Care Night is held every Monday, apart from building closures.  However, not all of our Care Ministries meet every Monday throughout the year.  GriefShare, Divorce Care, and Cancer Support meet in 13-week cycles with short breaks in between.  Northside and the Care Ministry would like to invite you to continue to attend Care Night during these breaks, especially if these nights offer you the life giving community, fellowship, and worship we hope they do.

Join a Support Group

We all have hurts, habits, and hang-ups. We want you to know that Celebrate Recovery is a place where it’s okay to not be okay. But here’s the cool part—you don’t have to stay that way. God’s radical grace provides not only a way out of the mess, but healing in the midst of it. No matter what you’re facing and no matter what you’re going through, we’re committed to navigating through the tough stuff with you. We are a Christ-Centered 12-Step LIFE RECOVERY Ministry to help you find true freedom.

This study offers an 8-step biblical healing, modeled by women who have been where you are.

The heart of Infertility Support is to come alongside married couples in their infertility journey. The group will be reading “The Infertility Companion” written by Sandra L. Glahn, Th. M, & William R. Cutrer, M.D. This book focuses on the challenges of infertility and will include weekly readings. Couples will meet together to discuss the readings, then break out by gender to separately to discuss more sensitive topics. Our hope is to help others journey well through infertility, and continue to grow in their faith and marriage.

LGBTQ+ & the Christian Family

We all know someone in the LGBTQ+ community, but for some of us it is our family member. For Christian families, having a child and/or loved one in the LGBTQ+ community can be lonely. The world tells us that we cannot hold on to our Christian beliefs, and love our LGBTQ+ family member at the same time. That is where this group comes in! Together we will allow God to show us how to build and strengthen our faith, support one another, and most importantly love our LGBTQ+ family member.

Please join us every Monday evening, beginning August 3, at 6:30pm, for Care Night and LGBTQ+ & the Christian Family  Please use the 'Join a Support Group' button above to sign up.  A new 13-week session will begin in January.  Once the start date is decided, you will be able to use the 'Join a Support Group' button above to sign up.

Conquer: The Battle Plan for Purity

Calling all courageous men! There is a hurt, habit, and hang-up that is tearing us apart, killing marriages, destroying families, and rapidly spreading generation to generation. If you are tired of the bondage, isolation, hurt, and shame this causes, this group is for you. It is time we stand up together, and become conquerors and the men God calls us to be!

Corinthians 16:13 tells us “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong!” It is time we group together and courageously allow Jesus Christ to lead us into battle!
