Adult Groups

     Adult Sunday School/Small groups are the heartbeat of Northlake Baptist Church.

     God’s Word, in all of it’s infinite capacities, is explored in various styles, depths, and methods. But, it’s all centered on God’s Word, which alone provides inerrant access to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is this Jesus alone who saves and transforms us, to be more like Him in our hearts, and in our actions.

     Yet, even further, these groups provide a consistent fellowship of both mature and young believers so that all can be mutually encouraged in knowledge and passion to follow Jesus.

     On this basis of a “faith community,” these groups work together as a team to do ministry in our church and local community to impact the world for Jesus Christ.

     This group loves discussing and sharing how to grow in understanding how God’s word impacts current events in the world and in personal life.

     Many folks have kids in preschool or grade school, but any age or life stage is welcome.
