Ministries to adults are the superstructure of learning and sharing for our members and friends. Opportunities to discuss, question, experience, grow, and lead are among the choices open to all.


Wednesdays at 8:15 a.m., Calvin Hall

The Men's Prayer Breakfast is one of Northminster’s oldest groups, but younger guys come, too! They eat breakfast together, do Bible study and pray for each other and the congregation. For more information contact Bob Bowers.

Mondays and Thursdays at 2:30 p.m., Board Room

The Focus of the 3B program is to build flexibility, strength and balance.  This program is free to everyone!  For more information, contact Denise Harrington (317-509-7085).

Sundays at 10:00 am and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm

September-May we offer many opportunities for dialogue and book discussions. All members and friends are invited to participate. The leaders are the Pastors, members, and guests. Topics have included world religions, spiritual practices, anti-racism, poverty in American, centering prayer, and more!

Small Groups

Whatever you want to call it, fellowship, learning together, or socializing, these groups are made up of singles and couples of certain age groups who like to get together, go on field trips, and hang out. The people in these groups have formed bonds through activities in the church or through social groups.  Wherever the seeds of friendship are planted, they grow and strengthen the relationships within the congregation.

Meets weekly online. Contact Denise Harrington for login information.

This group of people, ages 46-65, meets in people's homes quarterly for a pitch-in meal, conversation and fellowship. Call 317-251-9489 for details.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus’ commandment to “love each other as I have loved you” (John 15:12). By means of this lay ministry, those in our congregation and community who are hurting receive the love and support they need through a one-to-one, confidential, caring relationship with a trained Stephen Minister.

If you, a family member, or a friend need someone who cares, someone who supports, and someone who listens, or if you would like more information about Northminster’s Stephen Ministry program, don't hesitate to get in touch with our Associate Pastor Karen Herbst-Kim in our church office (317-251-9489) or our Stephen Ministry leader Tony Dzwonar.
