"The Importance of Community"
We believe that Christian Community is the "greenhouse" for transformed lives. It is a place where...
God can work
The Holy Spirit finds hearts to work
in and change
The Word of God comes alive in hearts
and makes a difference
Our salvation is lived out in our lives
The biblical authors used a number of different analogies to try to wrap their arms around the concept of the church. One of the most used was that of a family. We are all brothers and sisters. We laugh together when life is good and cry together when life is hard. We share meals together and share our lives with one another.
At Northside, the heartbeat of our church is Community. Community is where the "Big Church" becomes smaller!
There is no more exciting adventure or fulfilling challenge than that of a lifelong pursuit of becoming like Christ. Northside's Adult Ministries stand poised to lead you to a deeper and growing faith. Our desire is to see everyone at Northside progressing and living as fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ..
Take a look at our various ministry opportunities to find a place to help you to connect.

Senior Adult Ministry
"Now if we are children, then we are heirs - heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory." -- Romans 8:17
Golden Heirs Click on the Golden Heirs link to see the most current schedule of activities.
Golden Heirs represents the mature senior adults of our church. There is no hard fast rule on age, but for those who want a distinction, we normally say 55 plus. This focused ministry was established in October of 1976. You do not have to be a member of Northside Baptist to belong. It is open to all persons of this community who would like to enjoy and share in our activities.
We meet weekly on Thursdays at 9:00 am in East Hall for donuts and coffee. From 9:30-9:50 we recognize visitors, birthdays and anniversaries; we have a brief devotional and time of prayer for special needs. At approximately 9:50, we turn the program over to our weekly guest artist.
Many people in our church, of the mature senior ministry age, do not have family nearby. What a blessing it is to be part of a group who care about and watch out for each other. Beyond our regular Thursday meetings, we enjoy lunch together often, have special themed functions like retreats, luaus, Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas parties, movies and popcorn, and much more!
"But in these last days he has spoken to us by his son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe." -- Hebrews 1:2
