First of all, we want to say "You are very welcome!" We hope that you will feel right at home with us as we worship together. If you are searching for a church home, we would like you to know that there is a special place here just for you.
A Place for Worship
The primary reason we meet together is to focus our attention on God, giving Him our worship and receiving His blessing and inspiration. Each of these occasions is a special time of spiritual refreshment. We hope this is what you experience with us.
A Place for Learning
To us, studying the Bible is vital because it not only instructs us intellectually, but also guides us spiritually. We believe and accept it as God's Word to us, a Book that is alive and relevant to life today. Learning its truths is a thrilling adventure. Classes are available for all ages.
A Place for Enrichment
For every person at every age level we offer a wealth of opportunities - special programs and ministries for children, youth and adults which fill the church calendar. You can be sure that in this kaleidoscope of activities, there's more than one place where you can be personally enriched.
A Place for Friendship
Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian friendship. That's why we make it a priority to build lasting bonds between the members of our church family - bonds of concern and genuine commitment to one another. Best of all, this circle of care is ever-widening. We'd love for it to include you too.
A Place for Service
Just as Jesus Christ came "not to be ministered unto, but to minister..." we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. This applies both within the church family and outside our fellowship. We look forward to serving you and we hope to see you.
What Should You Expect During Our Worship Assembly?
Jesus stated clearly God's expectations during worship.
"God is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."(John 4:24)
On Sunday Morning we worship by including these things:
The Lord's Supper. The church in the New Testament observed the Lord's Supper on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7) to commemorate the death of Christ. We follow their Divinely guided example. This memorial observance consists of eating unleavened bread and drinking "fruit of the vine" (grape juice). These were the emblems Jesus used when he established this practice in Matthew 26:26-29. Observing this memorial follows the teaching of the Lord, the teaching of His apostles and the example of the New Testament church (I Cor. 11 :23-26).
Congregational Singing. Paul instructed Christians to sing songs of praise and exhortation in worship (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16). This, you will quickly notice, we do without any accompaniment of musical instruments. In these passages, there is no authority given for using any instruments except the voice and the heart. Because we desire to do only what is biblically authorized, we simply sing - no more, no less.
Prayer. At various times in our worship period, men will direct the thoughts of the congregation in prayer to God through Jesus Christ (Luke 18:1; I Thess.5:17).
Bible Preaching. In order to encourage, inform, build faith and rebuke if necessary, time will be spent in the presentation of simple and understandable studies from God's word ( 1 Pet. 2:2; 1 Cor. 1:18-21)
Contribution. As commanded in (1Cor. 16: 1&2 ) we give as we have prospered on the first day of the week. These are the things you will observe in a Sunday assembly of Northwest Church of Christ. As was stated above, these are expressions of worship that can be clearly seen in the New Testament. Our desire is not to add to or take from God's word (Rev. 22:1819), but to do only that for which we have authority.
Using the Bible as our example, we also find and follow The Gospel Plan of Salvation:
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
"And these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent." (Acts 17:30)
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9)
"…arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord." (Acts 22:16)
"…be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life." (Revelation 2:10
If you have question concerning these topics or would like to know more, please visit our assembly or call for a bible study.

Youth & Family Ministry
Here at Northwest we are very passionate about our youth. We have developed a very strong ministry with one goal in mind. Our goal is to get our children to heaven! We know of so many who have sadly left the church, it is our fervent prayer that the children at Northwest will be equipped with the knowledge and the tools that they need to have a solid foundation in Christ.
We strive to accomplish this in a variety of ways. We offer Bible classes for every age. We also have a variety of activities for our youth that are designed for fellowship and spiritual growth. We have weekly teen devotionals. These devotionals will usually be at the church building or one of our members’ homes. This is a time for food, fellowship, singing, and a lesson from God’s Word. We also have several church camps that we attend. These camps are a great spiritual resource for our young people. While we attend various camps and do some fun activities, one of the best things our youth is involved with is spending one week every summer to go knock doors on a campaign and be actively involved in leading souls to Christ
While we have classes, devotionals, and activities for all ages, we realize that these efforts alone will not ensure our children are properly trained. Our youth ministry is simply an aide to parents. We do everything we can to train, equip, and provide available resources to the parents here, so that they can more effectively train their children in the ways of God. It is our constant prayer that because of the dedication of the parents along with the church family as a whole, we will provide a model for our youth that will leave a lasting impression on their hearts. Won’t you come worship with us, and see what we can do to help your family?
