We are definitely in an unprecedented time here in 2020. Due to the Covid19 outbreak and subsequent quarantines we have had to look and do ministry a lot different. Trying our best to use our digital tools and until we can gather again here is where you can find us. Wednesday nights we are continuing our Small Groups at 7 pm doing Zoom calls. You may contact Glenn, firstname.lastname@example.org, for the meeting ID and password to join along. Sundays we are meeting mostly with a teaching Live on our Student Ministries Facebook page, (@northsidestudents731) and our Instagram page, (@northside_students731) at 6 pm. You can also use both of those pages to stay up to date with the latest information as we share it during this time. Also, our annual Youth Musical, that was scheduled for the first of June has been rescheduled to the same time in 2021. Please, check back here and our social media pages to stay informed of the most current changes in our 2020 summer schedule.
“Sharing God’s Love and Making Young Disciples who follow Jesus Christ” is the passion of Northside Students. We exist fully to accomplish this mission. We strive to hit this mark through Missions, Bible Study, Small Group Discussions, Recreation, Worship, Prayer, Music, Drama, Relationships, Media, Family Experiences, Scouting, Confirmation, Discipleship, Student Evangelism and many more opportunities. We work with Students 6th through 12th Grade along with their families and friends. Below you will find our main gathering times here in our facility (the gym at Northside Church, 2571 North Highland Ave., Jackson, TN 38305) and ways to contact us for more information as well as our monthly calendar.
Sunday Night Youth Group “Weekend Wrap-Up”
Teenagers are changing and living at such a fast pace that it seems as if life passes right by us. Jesus encourages us to work, learn, celebrate, and function in groups, churches, teams, bands, classes, families, and other forms of “together” as we go about our lives here on Earth. That is what Sunday Nights are all about! Coming together from all of our different zones to eat, play, worship, support, and lean on one another as we work through these Teen Years together. We meet from 5:30-7:45 pm most every Sunday of the month in the gym. We invite you to drop by and spend some time with us in this adventure.
Sunday School on Sunday Mornings
We do still provide a traditional Sunday School time at 10:00 am on Sunday Mornings. We meet after the 9 am Service and prior to the 11:00 am Service which are probably our two most popular services for families with teenage kids. Classes are in the gym with the boys upstairs and the girls in the classrooms downstairs.
Wednesday Night Small Groups “Mid-Week Check-In”
Small Groups begin in the gym in the large Youth Room upstairs at 6:45 pm with announcements, songs, jokes, and gathering to prepare us all for our Small Group experience of the evening. We have a small group for everyone led by trained volunteers who give of their time, energy, talents, and hearts for our students. We dig a little deeper into a passage and life application during this time but we don’t walk past the opportunity to deal with something that is strong upon our hearts on any particular week. We encourage you to come and be a part of these little Sabbath moments in the middle of the week.
Confirmation (Discipleship for Pre-Teens)
6th Grade is a wild time as Students who are about to be Teenagers in our area are thrust into Jr. High School or Middle School. Confirmation meets at 6:45 pm on Wednesday Nights during the school year as the small group for our 6th Graders. It is a time when they sit with our Confirmation Team (Pastors, Youth Leaders, Older Youth, and Mentors) to learn about Jesus Christ in a focused manner. We look at making the decision to follow Christ if they have not and what that looks like as they begin their path as a new young disciple. We also walk with parents to help them as they transition to parenting teenagers and the unique differences that brings versus the stages up to this point.
