“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.

HOMESCHOOL FAMILY CONNECTIONS
At capacity, but sign up to go on the waiting list.
Tim and Caitlin Lopez are a first-generation homeschooling family who want to connect with other NGC families. Hosting up to 4 other homeschooling families in their home, their goal is to meet twice per month (1st and 3rd Sunday evenings from 5-7:30pm) throughout the school year, with breaks at Christmas and summer. The group eat a meal together and then have a time of discussion while the kids play. The discussion content will be focused on personal and spiritual growth (rather than homeschooling topics), but will be mutually agreed upon by the group members. We would expect group members to make a one school year commitment.

MOPS stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers,” and by preschoolers, we mean kids from conception through kindergarten. The spirit of MOPS is that we moms need each other, and our hope is that through our MOPS group you will find encouragement, support, practical teaching, and meaningful friendships.
A MOPS meeting always begins with brunch and a time to connect with other moms at your table. Most meetings also include practical and encouraging teaching through speakers and videos. Crafts and other activities are often incorporated as well, but most importantly, you’ll get to have honest conversations with other moms who understand the joys and frustrations of raising young kids.
