There are lots of ways to get involved in ministry at Northminster. First, come to worship! Our Sunday morning services are the heart of our community. It is our time to ground ourselves in the faithfulness of God, to be meet the risen Christ, and to be renewed in the Holy Spirit.
Mission to our local community We have hosted Bridge Refugee Services in our church building for nearly 20 years. In addition, we host 2 AA meetings, Lake Hills Neighborhood Association, and a local Seventh Day Adventist congregation.
The Hope House is an ongoing mission of the church. Contributions and volunteers are always needed for this organization. We also offer support and supplies for teachers and staff at Lakeside Academy, our neighborhood elementary school. The Partnering Ministry Team regularly explores other opportunities for serving our neighbors.
Within the congregation, there are also opportunities for ministry. We rely heavily on volunteers who help take great care of our grounds, our building, and volunteer in the church office. New Sunday School teachers for children and adults are always welcome, and the choir covets new voices, no matter how experienced you are. In worship, we always welcome those who are willing to serve as ushers, liturgists, and more. Volunteers are needed weekly to help provide refreshments during our fellowship time after worship.
For those who love to be involved in visioning and planning, we have four ministry teams that coordinate much of the ministry here at Northminster: Renewing Ministry Team (pretty much everything that takes place inside the church: worship, education, music); Partnering Ministry Team (pretty much everything that takes place or is directed outside of the church (outreach, mission, benevolences); Welcoming Ministry Team (communication, fellowship opportunities, meals); and Ministry of Administration and Finance (stewardship, property, personnel, technology). The teams meet quarterly and new members are always welcome!
