THE RACE

At Northside, we call our spiritual development process “THE RACE.” Hebrews 12:1 tells us to “run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Paul said, “I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Unfortunately, many people start the race strong but never finish, either getting discouraged or hindered by the sins that easily trip us up. Our desire is that each member crosses the finish line a winner!

If you’ve ever run, you’ve probably discovered that it is more enjoyable and much easier when you are running with someone else. God never intended us to run alone—that’s the purpose of the church. In this class, we will learn about four things that unite us as we “run” together—Our Salvation Story, Our Mission/Vision/Strategy, Our Beliefs and Values, and Our Commitments. Because Northside is made up of people from many different backgrounds, this experience is intended to clearly explain who we are, what we believe, and how to get connected. Childcare (ages 11 and under) will be provided by reservation only. Completion of this class is required for membership.

2020 has been quite a year for everyone!  Many have found themselves facing unexpected illness, financial hardships and our world has never looked quite this uncertain.  But, we know that God’s Word, the Holy Bible, is certain and is TRUTH!  Pastor Steve will share how to best study your Bible – you will learn how to unlock truths of the Bible and how to apply these truths to your life.

Running a race requires discipline. Our enthusiasm will help us get started but it won’t take us across the finish line. The same is true in the Christian life. That’s why the Bible says, “Take the time and trouble to keep yourself spiritually fit.” In this class you learn the spiritual disciplines that are critical to your success in “The Race” God has called us all to run. Deadline to register for childcare is the Wednesday before the class. Prerequisite: Running Together.

People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided

Group: Bible Study Fellowship
Dates: Tuesdays, Beginning September 13
Time: 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Cost: None, donations only

Good and evil kings. Passionate prophets. Prophecies that shape our modern age. The Old Testament is full of theologically rich books that both recount and shape history. They also set the stage for the long-awaited Messiah, containing more than 300 prophecies covering His birth, life, death, and resurrection.

People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided will unpack a fascinating period in Israel’s history across 15 books, from its split into two nations, through dozens of kings and prophets and ultimately to the heartbreaking exile into Babylon.

Jesus loved the Old Testament. And you will too.

Explore 15 of the books Jesus deeply loved in community, discussing questions around the goodness of God amidst calamity, mercy, ultimate allegiance, judgment, and salvation. Join others in finding answers and how they apply to modern life.

The fourfold method of BSF includes personal study questions, discussion in a small group, a lecture time and printed notes each week. For more information, go to www.bsfinternational.org and choose FIND A GROUP. If you have questions or need assistance with joining, please email and specify the Northside Baptist Class: bsf.colaew1105@gmail.com (for ladies) and John.myers26@yahoo.com (for men).

WEDNESDAYS

HOUSE OF PRAYER

When: Wednesdays (Resumes On September 7)

Time: 6:00 – 6:30 PM

Location: Auditorium

Today there is a desperate need for men and women of God who know how to pray: People who will not be satisfied with what they can accomplish in their power. Instead, they long to see the power and the glory of the Living God invade the Church with supernatural displays of His Deity! Jesus said, “My house shall be called a house of prayer.” The phrase house of prayer is from Isaiah 56:7, where it is used twice: “These [foreigners] I will bring to My holy mountain and give them joy in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; for My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

The church in Acts was birthed out of a prayer meeting. The great Revivals in America were begun with prayer! It is time for Christ-followers to fall on their knees and pray to the One who can change our country, our community, our church, our families, and our very lives through the power of the Holy Spirit.

It is clear that the place where believers worship will be a place of prayer. It is our desire that Northside will be known as a HOUSE OF PRAYER. Join Pastor Rocky as we gather for a time of prayer and worship. A time where we humble ourselves and ask our Heavenly Father to show us mercy and to anoint our lives and our church with His power! Asking for revival in our world and lifting needs in our church to the Lord. Simply come, no registration is needed.

INTRODUCING NEW STUDIES ON WEDNESDAYS after HOUSE OF PRAYER

Miracles: Believe It or Not!

Instructor: Dr. Lawrence Ford
Dates: Wednesdays, September 7 – December 14
Time: 6:30-7:30 pm
Materials: Handouts will be provided
Location: Choir Room 135

Miracles: Believe It or Not is a new Bible-focused series that will reveal the details of the major “miracles” in Scripture — from Genesis to Revelation — in order to make sense of the natural and the supernatural, and to increase our faith in the God of miracles, the God of Creation.

Did God really split the Red Sea in two for the people of Israel to escape Egypt? How? Did the walls of Jericho actually collapse when the Israelites walked around the city and shouted? How? Were the three Israelite prophets in Babylon unharmed when they were thrown into the fiery furnace? How? These are just three of thousands of questions people have about the miracles they see in the Bible. The text of Scripture says they happened just that way, but how can we be certain? And aren’t there scientific explanations for all of these “miracles” that don’t depend on the supernatural? What about miracles today? Do they really happen?
