Micro Churches meet one Sunday morning each month in homes all around Cincinnati for a deeper community experience of our normal Sunday celebration. We watch the live video of the Sunday service in a small group setting (10-30 people). Meeting in this smaller environment allows us to dive deeper into community and grow closer to Jesus! Come drink some coffee and make some lasting relationships! Sign up @ Connecting Point, or by emailing Cody at firstname.lastname@example.org

prophetic prayer & communion
Every few months, we host a corporate time of hearing from God and remembering His promises. We meet in the auditorium from 7-9pm quarterly on Friday nights to experience corporate prayer and communion. A brief time of worship and reflection will lead us to a time where we invite God to speak to us through His word, His Spirit and His people. Join us for this unique prayer experience. Contact Rusty Geverdt at firstname.lastname@example.org
The School of kingdom ministry
The number one reality Jesus spoke about is the Kingdom of God. He wants his followers to minister to one another and others in this reality. This may seem scary or intimidating but it doesn't have to be. In fact we can be naturally supernatural. If you'd like to learn how then the School of Kingdom Ministry is for you.

the Story-formed life
The Story-Formed Life is a discipleship training tool that exposes that invites us to enter into an epic story in which God himself is the central character. The Story deepens our faith. The key concept is understanding that we are living in God’s story and not our own. And if we truly grasp that truth, everything should change. We’ll be walking through the Scriptures to help make this discovery over the 10 weeks. The Story-Formed Life is offered twice per year. For more info, contact Adam Kasel at email@example.com or 513.668.0485.
It takes dozens of volunteers to keep everything running smoothly at Northstar. Consider regularly serving at Northstar during a Sunday morning gathering or during the week.

A Discipleship Huddle is a training group of 3-4 people that teaches discipleship strategies to help us be more intentional in living like Jesus. Huddles focus on learning to hear the voice of God. Huddles typically last 9-12 months and meet 2-4 times per month. They are both organized and organic while providing high challenge to change and high invitation into real relationships.
