Small Groups

Our Small Group ministry includes groups that gather weekly or bi-weekly for friendship and support, (such as home groups & Bible studies) groups that lead ministries (such as the children’s ministry) music groups (choir, praise teams) groups for activities (quilting) and groups for shared interests (book reading group, etc). They provide a great way to make friends and stay connected beyond Sunday mornings. Please contact our Small Groups Coordinator Steve Gossman at office@northpointpoulsbo.org or call the office at 360.779.0800. with any questions.
