    Grow

    There are always opportunities to grow in your faith, whether you’re exploring Christianity or have been a Christian for years. Here are just some of the steps you can take at North Way East End to mature in faith as you follow the Lord on your own journey -- and prepare to help others on theirs. Baptism The act of water baptism is an important first step in your spiritual journey as an outward expression of the grace of God in the life of a believer. For more information, click here or email Jon Mathieu. Discipleship Simply put, discipleship is about learning how to be a disciple of Jesus -- and learning how to make disciples of Jesus.

  • Serve

    Serve

    Whether you’ve never volunteered before or are ready to serve in a leadership role, we are all called to serve meaningfully in and as the local church. If you’d like to serve, but aren’t sure where, we’d love to help! Please contact Bri Feindt. Volunteer Opportunities Please consider serving our church family by volunteering in one of these areas: Worship Our worship team seeks to create an atmosphere in which people can be led by the Holy Spirit to encounter the greatness of God. Through music, prayer, and meditating on Scripture, the worship team helps to lead each person who attends a service into God’s presence. For more information, contact Leif. Production Production team volunteers make our Sunday worship services happen. Whether it’s by managing slides so that any person can know and sing a worship song, or by running lighting and sound equipment to ensure there are no distractions during a service, this team helps people encounter God. For more information, contact John. Outreach The Transformational Outreach Team aims to improve the desperate state of at-risk children locally, nationally and globally by mobilizing our church community to deliver practical resources and partner with established organizations and churches to carry out long-term solutions. For more information, contact East End Outreach. Family Ministry Family Ministry volunteers invest in the lives of the next generation by intentionally sharing their faith with children, from infants in our Nursery to Student Ministry kids about to graduate from high school. Our volunteers help to shape our children and teenagers into the servant-leaders God has created them to be. For more information, contact Ryan. Hospitality Our hospitality team designs and creates a welcoming environment where every person who walks through our doors will feel known and loved. Hospitality volunteers, by greeting at the doors, handing out the Notes, conversing around coffee, and asking great questions, affirm the value of every person who attends North Way. For more information, contact Bri. Safety Team We want everyone who attends North Way to know they are in a place that is emotionally, spiritually, and physically safe. Our safety team volunteers work to provide a physically safe environment in which people can experience God. Safety volunteers respond to emergency situations, provide medical assistance, and ensure the physical security of every person -- adult and child -- attending a worship service. For more information, contact Jon.

  • Students

    Students

    Student Ministry | 4pm-6pm Sundays, East End Ministry Center North Way Students is a dynamic environment where middle and high school students (6-12th grade) are encouraged to experience, know and follow Jesus. Weekly Gatherings Our gatherings are filled with unpredictable fun, relevant teaching, and small group time -- all designed to help students understand how to make sense of the questions they face in life and to live out what they are learning. Beyond our gatherings, North Way students experience incredible events and retreats, and have the opportunity to serve in ministry during our weekend services. And because we believe in partnering with parents, we equip families with application tools and resources to keep the conversation going beyond our student gatherings. Ultimately, as a student nears graduation, we are working to help pack that student’s bag with all that they need to own their faith as they move into the next phase of their life. Student Ministry Short Term Trips Student Ministry short term trips focus on partnering both with churches and established organizations on a local, national, and global scale. A cross-cultural ministry trip, whether around the world or to a city here at home, has the potential to be truly life-changing. You will be able to experience God and grow in your relationship with Him as you are removed from your day-to-day activities and routines. You will develop a God-centered perspective, allowing you to see your life at home through a new lens. You will serve others and live out the faith principles taught in Scripture as you grow, develop, and are challenged to truly practice your faith. You will grow in your relationship with the Lord, your teammates and leaders, and those in the community you enter. For more information about East End’s Student Ministry, email Ryan Lancia.
