9:00 AM Flagstaff Room

A life stage class designed for adults who are still in the workforce, without kids, or with kids who have moved out of the nest. But we are more than that – we are family and we love doing ‘life’ together! Won’t you join us!

Current Study: Ephesians

Next Study: S.H.A.P.E. (July 3rd – August 7th)

Have you discovered the unique purpose God has for your life? This study is designed specifically to take you to that next level of purpose—to reveal how God has designed you, and help see how that fits the intention for which you were created.

In these six lessons, Erik Rees unpacks for you the five elements of God’s blueprints for creating you. Each session includes tools that help bring clarity to your future goals and show you how to have the most fulfilling life possible—a life lived for God’s purposes, by God’s design.

Current Study: Hot Topics

07/31/16  Did God know the outcome of the fall of man?

08/7/16  What is the relationship between humans and angels?

08/14/16 Can homosexuals go to heaven / Does the Bible teach one man one woman?

08/21/16 Does the water and blood mentioned in 1 John 5 refer to baptism?

08/28/16 How did someone in the Old Testament get saved?

09/11/16 Does our soul and body join our spirit after death?

09/25/16  What is the Christian’s responsibility concerning politics?

10/02/16  Kickoff Breakfast for new series “Delighting in the Trinity”


Do you ever wonder if and how we can really believe the Bible to be true? Do you ever wonder if we can know for sure if we’re going to heaven? Then this class may be for you. In the course of 6 to 7 weeks, we’ll hit several common questions about God, faith, the church and the Bible.

One of the basic distinctives in this course is fun. Yes, fun. It’s NOT a formal lecture. Rather, it’s fun and interactive. So whether you’re one who enjoys talking or one who would rather sit and take it all in, you will most likely enjoy this casual learning environment.

Next class: Sunday, September 11, 2016

Just as the name describes, LIFE GROUPS are where life happens.  God never intended us to do life alone, “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another…” Hebrews 10:25a.  LIFE GROUPS at North Ridge come in many sizes and locations.  There are groups that meet Sunday mornings in classrooms around the church; there are groups that meet other days of the week on campus, there are dozens of groups that meet during the week in homes around the community; there are groups for women, men, singles, and more.

Visit our LIFE Group pages to read more and to see how to get plugged in.

Visit our pages with Women in mind to see the list of bible studies and groups we have at North Ridge.
