Life Group Vision
Life Groups Are The Heartbeat Of Our Church The earliest Christians met together in homes, sharing meals and possessions, loving God and each other, and always welcoming newcomers (Acts 2:42-47). At Northlake Church we embrace this as our model for Christian community. To follow it, we build and support small group meetings in homes throughout Longview, Kelso and the surrounding area. These small groups are called Life Groups, and they are what we consider to be the heart of our church.
Life Groups are a great way to connect with God and with other people at Northlake. In each Life Group meeting there are times for prayer, worship and Bible study as well as times for fellowship and building friendships. Our Life Groups are open to all, and visitors are always welcome. Take a look at our current Life Groups below. There sure is one you can connect with!

Meet Christian Schmutz,
Pastor for Spiritual Growth:
Christian loves the church! He was raised in Longview at Northlake Church and has come back to join the staff here after being away in Boston for eight years. While living in Boston, God encountered Christian and deposited in him a great desire to live out his life in pursuit of surrendered communion with God as well as deep authentic Christ-centered relationships in the Church. Christian is passionate about the church becoming a safe space in which all people can experience the presence of God in genuine community like we see described in the book of Acts (2:42-27). He also loves a good light roast coffee, deep talks, and exercise. He would love to hang out and get to know you!
We’d love to help you find a lifegroup to connect with at Northlake Church. Fill out the form to get connected!
