Hello
Small groups are where ministry takes place, relationships develop and people are encouraged and supported. Small groups give us an opportunity – no matter how “big” Northstar gets in our gatherings – to be “small” together. Whether in homes, dorm rooms, coffee shops or apartments, we’re scattered all over town, almost every night of the week. We gather to encourage one another in life as we seek to be authentic followers of Jesus Christ.
