“Groups” are where a lot of life happens and a lot of community develops. This includes groups (in homes, restaurants, forests, coffee shops, and more), serving opportunities (in and out of the church facility), and mission trips. Groups are initiated by the people of Northwest Gospel Church. Stay connected on social media to stay informed.


NGC Classes


BASICS

Taught live by NGC Pastors, this two-week class covers the ‘basics’ of who we are as a church and how we do life together and in our community. It also serves as our Membership class.


CHRISTIAN CHURCH HISTORY 

Lecturer: Ryan M. Reeves, PhD (Cambridge)
Assistant Professor of Historical Theology, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Dr. Reeves examines the twists and turns of church history, addressing major theological developments along the way. He demonstrates how God has been at work in each stage of church history and explains that Christians today can be confident that God continues to work in the church for His glory.

The 2nd Session of 10 Lectures will deal with issues in the Early Church from the 2nd century through the time of Augustine.  We will especially look at the early Councils of Nicea, Constantinople and Chalcedon.

Each class will be about an 1hr long with a short introduction and review, a video lecture of about 30 minutes and ending with a short question and answer time.

Facilitator: Joseph Leas (NGC Elder)

MEN OF HONOR: UPROOTING ANGER

Join us for 11 weeks as we go through the book, Uprooting Anger.

Everyone experiences anger, but few of us handle it in a Christ-centered way or know how to help others biblically. In this Bible-based guide to anger management, Robert D. Jones focuses on changing the underlying motivations and beliefs of the heart that drive angry behavior.
