Small Groups: where the big church becomes the small church

We are excited that you are looking into the small group ministry here at Northcliffe.  Our desire for all of our small groups is that they are places where we can grow in our faith, in a community of people who love and care about us, kind of like a loving an extended family.  There are two different kinds of small groups at Northcliffe that we would love for you to join.


Life Groups:

A Life Group is the place where we connect with the family atmosphere of Northcliffe.  We want your experience in a Life Group to feel a bit like visiting home.  The Life Groups at Northcliffe cover a variety of ages and stages of life.  We would love for you to try one out, but if that one doesn’t feel like a good fit for you, we would love for you to try another one.  Below is a list of the Life Groups, we look forward to meeting with you soon.

Christian Life Development (CLD)

Christian Life Development or CLD’s is a time when we dig in deeply to the foundations of our faith and the practical way in which we live out our faith.  Each of these classes have the intention of helping individual believers deepen or ground their faith in a community of believers in Christ.  CLD’s rotate from semester to semester.  Below are the current CLD’s that are taking place at Northcliffe.



A Study of the Gospel of John: That You May Believe

Facilitators: Chris Chambers and John Reddy | Sundays @ 5:30 PM | Family Life Center

God Almighty, before the beginning of the world, thought about us and planned our redemption.  As Christians, since the Holy Spirit dwells within our hearts, we should all find ourselves desiring to know God more intimately. The gospel of John helps us learn more about God by bringing us face-to-face with God incarnate, the Word made flesh, the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
The Fitting Room
Facilitator: Sandy Carbone | Tuesdays @10:00 AM | 6/13-7/25 | A-7
Colossians 3:12 tells us to “clothe” ourselves in Christian virtues like forgiveness, joy, patience, compassion. But how does that work in real life? Can we really “dress up” in the character of Christ? Kelly Minter says the answer is yes—if we let the Master Designer do the fitting. There are no gimmicks, no guilt trips, just an irresistible invitation for women to enjoy a spiritual makeover—to put on a life that’s personally tailored by the One who knows and loves them best.
