Fellowship groups are a primary place where the people of North Shore Fellowship gather, grow, and go.
They gather to enjoy Jesus and to practice “one anothering” (Eph. 4) – knowing one another, loving one another, bearing with one another, forgiving one another, etc.
Ideally, four things happen at a fellowship group: Fellowship, Prayer, Word, and Neighboring.
Every fellowship group has a leader who is a member of NSF; they help create a welcoming culture in our groups and initiate the delegation of various roles (E.g. host(s), facilitator(s), communicator, childcare organizer). They are the primary contact person for and organizer of the schedule for the group. They keep the Fellowship Groups Director notified of needs and concerns of members of the group (especially when those needs exceed the capacity of the group).
The needs, focus, and feel of each group are different, and we value diversity in our body. That being said, a fellowship group ideally gathers in someone’s home, welcomes newcomers, fosters intergenerational relationships, and meets 2-3x/month with a pause or change of pace for the summer.

While some groups have childcare on-site, most parents choose to hire a baby-sitter. See our policy for ways NSF can help you.
