Dear Northside Family,
We hope that you are enjoying the longer days as we enter into the Spring season. Because you are an important part of our family, we want to share with you what we are planning for this summer.
God continues to bless our church family with growth. And, just like any growing family…the more members you have, the more room you need. When we moved to this property in 2011, we had 60k square feet. As you know, God quickly grew our church and in 2015, we opened Phase II giving us a much-needed additional 46k square feet. God has been so good to Northside!
We have grown at our Lexington campus by more than 42% since moving here in 2011 and we have also experienced a 77% growth at our West Campus in just five short years. Due to the growth at our West Campus, we are pleased to announce that we are starting a second service on Sundays beginning Easter Sunday. At our West Campus, the service times will be 9:30am and 11:00am. Both campuses are having a facelift to the preschool and children’s ministry areas that we are very excited about. With the growth at our Lexington campus, we want to keep our same service times. To accommodate that, we are excited to announce we are expanding our current worship center this summer. We are adding a balcony that will give us 300 additional opportunities each service to invite “your one” to accomplish the mission God has given us.
The mission God has tasked us with, as a body of believers, is to use the preaching and teaching of His Word to change lives and accomplish His purpose. We are a kingdom-focused church and we are called to reach our community, country and world for that “one”. The growth God has brought is a direct reflection of the Lord working in our church through each of us. We value worship and we believe that mankind was created to worship God; therefore, worship is our highest priority and the core motivation behind all we do. This worship center expansion gives us hundreds of opportunities for you to invite “your one”. Who will be “your one” that will fill those new seats? This is a great time to invite more friends, family and community to Northside. We challenge you to join us in prayer and fasting asking God to speak to your heart and show you “your one”.
We are working with architects and contractors developing a plan to make this a smooth transition period over the summer. We will be posting pictures and updates on our website, lobby monitors and in our email communication with you. This summer we will have the opportunity to continue our same service times (9:15am and 10:45am) by using our Gym as our place of worship on Sunday mornings.
We will continue to have lives changed for Christ over the summer of 2019. We are thankful for your flexibility as the Lord grows Northside when so many churches are struggling. We cannot imagine a better church family than our Northside family!
