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 the 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.

Moms of children from infants through middle school meet most months at member’s homes and to go out to eat. If you need a place to vent, get advice or learn from other moms, then this is your group!  Some moms work full time, some stay at home and some are in between.  All are welcome!  You will find loving supportive moms and we always have chocolate!  Questions? Call 317-251-9489 for details.

This group of parents meets Wednesday nights at church in the Knox Room from 6:15-7:30 pm to pray, laugh, share and support each other while children are involved in evening activities. Different parenting topics are shared each week. 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; someone who listens; and someone who shares, 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.
