Whether you've never been to church before, you attend Northview regularly, or you attend another church on the weekends--you are welcome here! Join us at one of our Bible studies!
Together we will slowly work through a book of the Bible, discovering how God wants to challenge, encourage, and change us.
We offer a variety of weekly study opportunities, with occasional conferences and retreats to supplement the regular study of the Bible.
All of our studies are expositional (working through a book of the Bible or section of a book sequentially) and inductive (asking a series of questions which help us observe, interpret, and apply the Biblical text).
Women of Northview! We are so excited to invite you to gather for a night of worship and prayer this summer on August 18th from 7-9 pm. We will be spending the evenings focusing our hearts in worship as we praise, pray, testify, and hear from God’s Word together. Registration will open just so we know how many people we can prepare for, but is not required. Looking forward to seeing you there!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This summer we invite you to spend time studying what the Bible teaches us about prayer. It has been a difficult year and we likely have more challenges ahead, yet we have no better place to turn but to our sovereign God in prayer. Through this study you will learn to imitate the faith of biblical examples and approach God with both humility and confidence that you may “receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 3:16).
This 8 week study is now available as a downloadable pdf or a printed booklet. You can pick up your copy at our weekend services or at our Downes Road Office. This is a self-paced study to do on your own, with your family, your community group, or a group of friends. (There will be no weekly meetings or teaching sessions.)
An Inductive Study of Numbers using Northview Curriculum
The book of Numbers is an often overlooked book full of fascinating stories about talking donkeys, poisonous snakes, spies, and battles! In it we enter the wilderness with the people of Israel on their way to the Promised Land. Their journey is marked by extreme contrasts of obedience and disobedience, just judgment and sinful rebellion, trust and doubt – sounds a lot like the journey many of us face daily! Join us as we learn obedience and see how God is faithful when our faith is tested.
This study is approximately 2 hours of weekly homework.
The Book of Acts (Fall/Winter) Join us as we embark on a study of the book that tells us the story of the beginnings of the Church. We’ll start at the point of Christ’s ascension, His mandate to all disciples and His assurance that every believer would have the power to proclaim the gospel and make disciples throughout the entire world. We meet Peter and Paul and Barnabas and Mark and we see the gospel spread over space and time. Come and learn what the church is, what her call is, who the people are and how that mission applies to to every day of your entire life. Come and study who Jesus promised to empower and embolden His brothers and sisters; come and discover the power every believer has to live out the Great Commission.
Philippians (Spring) Do you know what it is to have joy in every circumstance? If anything, our collective and personal joy has been tested and tried this past year in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. Let’s hear from Paul as he writes his beloved church in Philippi…from prison. He teaches how to think, how to worship, how to give, how to have joy in all situations – because of where our true hope lies. Join us as we discover the gospel foundation for true and lasting joy in the life of each and every believer.
These studies are approximately 3-5 hours of weekly homework with the option to attend at our Downes Road or Central Abbotsford campuses.
A huge part of the Northview Women’s Ministry is the provision of childcare for moms of young kids at our morning Bible studies. This year, as we rebuild our Children’s Ministry team in anticipation of fall ministry start up, we are hopeful that we’ll be able to offer childcare again to support moms as they dig into God’s Word!
The cost for the year is approximately $300 per child ($3 per child/week). A large portion is subsidized by the church, but in order to keep costs as low as possible for these women, we are reaching out to see if you would like to partner with us in this ministry! If you would like to support the childcare ministry at our morning Bible studies, you’ll be able to select the option to give when you register (gifts are not tax-deductible).
What is Inductive Bible Study?
We believe God still speaks today and that His primary and authoritative way of doing this is through His Word; all 66 books! We believe taking in Scripture is a necessary part of the growing Christians life.
We desire to GROW in knowledge that results in women who look more like Jesus. We desire to SUBMIT to His Word. We desire to KNOW God: His character and ways. We desire to KNOW Jesus: what His life, death and resurrection accomplished (the gospel!).
We use the Inductive Bible study method. This method utilizes 3 tools: #1 Observation (what does the Bible say?) #2 Interpretation (What does this mean?) #3 Application (What do I do?) Through personal daily study, participation in weekly discussion groups and the teaching that follows, we strive to grasp God’s Word at a deeper and more impactful level.
