A typical Sunday morning begins with student led worship followed by large group teaching and small group discussion groups.

Youth Know Jesus

Love God

At IMPACT teens are given ample opportunity to Love God through learning about Him in scripture study, sermons, and retreats. Our curriculum addresses the typical needs of young people in the secular world with an emphasis on intentionally living Christ-like.

Love Each Other

NorthRidge Fellowship knows that real relationships with other Christians can propel a young person into a deeper, more righteous life path. So, at IMPACT we provide ample opportunity for youth to gather with each other, and with adults dedicated to their spiritual growth, to form a network of like-minded Christian friends. Make sure to join us in our fun games and food gatherings. Parents are invited to get involved as volunteers and prayer partners for the ministry.

Youth Serve Jesus

Make a Difference

IMPACT focuses the youth on the Great Commission, knowing that a disciple for Christ can Make a Difference in reaching others for Christ. So, we work closely with the NorthRidge Fellowship Make a Difference ministry to provide opportunities for youth to do missions work within the church, locally, state wide, nationally and globally. Young people are welcome to join the church at Feed Our Starving Children and CROSS food shelf to do the manual labor necessary to feed those in need globally and locally. In the summer we spend a day at Dayton Park Properties to help the residents there and to have a good time getting to know them as our neighbors and community. We have mini-short-term missions trip to Nett Lake to spread the work and assist in ministry among Native Americans in that area. Many youth like to join in on a fantastic short-term mission to Alaska to work with a church there on its ministry. Others join Dan Monson in his short-term missions in Honduras.

Remember, too, participating in church volunteer work, local opportunities and short-term missions are a GREAT addition to the college resume. Talk to us on how to get involved.
