As you walk in you can expect to be greeted by one of our Care Team members who will hand you a bulletin loaded with info, events and ways to get involved at Northwest Fellowship. We invite you to stop by our Welcome Center booth located in the middle of the foyer where we have a special gift for all of our first-time visitors. On your left, you will find our refreshment bar with coffee, tea, lemonade, goodies and more! Restrooms are just right around that corner.
Children are a high priority at Northwest Fellowship, and we've shaped our children's ministry to help them encounter God in a meaningful way every time they walk through the doors. We have classes for children from nursery age through 6th grade located to the right of the main sanctuary entrance.
You will find a check-in table where greeters will help you print a name tag for each of your children and a guardian tag for you to pick them up with. Children cannot be picked up without a guardian tag. If you lose the tag, a new one can be printed. This system ensures that every child returns to the correct adult and remains safe.
Children from 1st to 6th grade are brought together to experience live worship, drama and a kid's sermon in our kids Harvest Room. Then they return to individual classes for small group discussion and games before pick-up time. Toddlers through Kindergarten age are also brought together for a brief time of live worship and a puppet show. They return to their classes for snack and Bible story time before parents arrive. Our desire is to follow Jesus's command from Mark 9:37 and welcome each child in His Name, and in so doing welcome the presence of our Father in heaven.
On 5th Sundays (4 times a year), we only hold classes for nursery through age 4. We invite all other children to be a part of our normal Sunday service.
At Northwest Fellowship, worship is vital. We seek to engage everyone in a meaningful worship experience through music, video, and any other creative means to share the message of the Gospel.
Each Sunday, the Word of God is taught in a relevant, understandable way so you can learn what God's Word says and apply it to your everyday life. Worship service begins at 10:30am and is over around 12pm. Corporate communion happens every first Sunday of the month and our youth worship team leads our worship services every 5th Sunday of the month.

We believe that God has drawn you here for a purpose!
