It’s important to feel a sense of belonging when you attend a church and the best way to do that at NorthRidge Fellowship is to join one of our many Small Groups. These are vibrant gatherings of people, like you, living life in community and fellowship with each other. It’s all about growing in Christ and sharing the Christian journey.

Most groups do service projects together, and nearly every meeting involves food. Some eat dinner together while others simply fellowship over a cup of coffee and a sweet treat. The format is determined by the group leaders, people like you, seeking to know Jesus better and wanting to share their exciting walk with other Christ-followers. While we’re not Bible scholars, we do open the Bible and pray together. It’s all about growing and developing in our personal relationships with Jesus and our knowledge of the WORD.

Women of the Ridge

The Women of the Ridge seeks to meet women where they are in their walk with Christ and in their lives. The women encourage each other, support each other, pray with each other and mentor each other along the way. We plan a variety of activities both in large group and small group settings to support these goals. Our goal is not only to support the women of NorthRidge, but to reach into the community of Rogers with our love and support.

Men’s Ministry

The Men’s Ministry at NorthRidge Fellowship seeks to get men together for adventure, fellowship and spiritual growth. The goal of this ministry is to develop relationships while engaged in activities together, enjoy fellowship with each other and grow in a deeper understanding of the Bible. We plan a variety of activities, events and studies to support this mission.

Adventure & Fellowship
Events throughout the year include softball, fishing launch on Lake Mille Lacs, ice fishing and the fall Men’s Retreat at Trout Lake Camp.

Men’s Breakfast
We meet the second Saturday of every month from 7:30-8:30am at church. We feature a home-cooked meal, share faith stories and hear presentations on subjects that help us become the men, husbands, and fathers that God wants each of us to become.

“Setting the Table, Making a Place for Adults, Students & Children to Meet God”

At NorthRidge Fellowship “church” is not just the place we meet on Sunday. Our church is the people who walk through our doors and call it home, and call each other family. We believe that everyone who walks through our doors has been called by God and is on a journey to discover His plan for their life.

The Connections ministry welcomes all attenders, creates a friendly environment where all will feel they are home, and highlights the ministry opportunities at NorthRidge. The Connections ministry includes the Usher/Greeter Team, Welcome Team, and Refreshment Team. This ministry is a great way for you to meet people and to welcome them to NorthRidge Fellowship.
