Wednesday Nights 7-8:30 p.m. | September 5 - May 8 | Cost: $10

Discipleship Groups meet on Wednesday nights at the church from 7:00-8:30 p.m. These groups are divided by grade and gender and typically contain 8-15 students led by 2-3 volunteer adult staff. The groups follow a three-year curriculum focused on systematically teaching key doctrines through the study of particular Bible passages.


Discipleship usually happens in the context of relationship. Our hope is that students, parents and leaders will develop fruitful and lasting relationships that will facilitate the effective ministry of God’s Word. The best way for these kind of relationships to develop is for students to be consistently involved in the life of their group. For this reason, we encourage students and families to see DGs a priority and an investment.


Each grade has a different curriculum track with a specifically designed theme and focus. Each school year session has 22 lessons. Lessons tend to build on previous lessons.

6th grade groups examine the nature of Scripture and the existence and attributes of God through studies entitled “Treasuring God’s Word” & “Knowing the God Who Is.” This curriculum is from the “So What?” series, which focuses on the importance of reading, studying, and applying God’s Word in context. 

7th grade groups will finish studying the attributes of God and begin studying salvation through examining the book of Romans.

8th grade groups study what it’s like to be members of the body of Christ and brothers and sisters in Christ, the purpose of the church, our relationship with nonbelievers, and evangelism through a study entitled, “Christ in Us.”

What Parents Should Know About OneEighty (180)

Is your son or daughter in (or soon entering) junior high school? Here's what you should know about Junior High Ministries at NorthCreek Church!

What is 180?

180 is NorthCreek Church's ministry to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students and their parents. We are not here to replace the role of the parent (the primary discipler of your student), but our desire is to partner with you in an effort to train, teach, and equip students in the Word of God with the purpose of encouraging a deep and sincere love for Christ.


What can we as parents expect from 180?

Here's what you can expect from us:

Sound, biblical teaching in our Discipleship Group program, as well as at our many yearly events that involve teaching from God's Word.

Opportunities for students to grow in their faith with other believers, both peers and adults.

A staff that cares about your students and desires that they know our Lord in a saving way.

Good communication that fosters a team spirit with parents. We send out a weekly email to keep in touch with you about upcoming events, deadlines, and other helpful info.


Are there any forms I should fill out?

Yes. Here are the important forms:

Annual Permission Form
The best way for us to know that your student is in junior high is through the APF. This form is required in order for your student to be driven in a vehicle by anyone other than you, their parent. It also provides our staff with necessary medical info. in the event of an emergency.

Plan to fill a new one out in May of each year, and drop it off at the Student Ministries Office, our Chapel drop box, or mail it in.

Click here to download the 2015-2016 Annual Permission Form now!


Motor Vehicle Release Form
This form is required for all of our Volunteer Drivers only once. It would be impossible for us to support our off-campus events without volunteers to drive, so please consider serving Ignite in this way!

You may drop it off at the Student Ministries Office, our Chapel drop box, or mail it in.

Click here to download the Motor Vehicle Release Form now!


How can I get involved?

There are several ways that YOU, the parent, can get involved with this ministry to your student:

Become a Volunteer Driver!
Drivers are needed to transport students to all our off-campus events. We can't support off-campus events without our drivers. Click on the tab above titled "Serve" to learn more.

Become a Discipleship Group Leader!
Each year, we have around 40 DG co-leaders walking our students through the Bible. It would be impossible to teach all of our students without dedicated leaders like you. Click on the tab above titled "Serve" to learn more.

Help us chaperone, set up, and clean up!
There are various events each year that require help to pull off. We will let you know about these needs via our weekly email and our event web pages.




Recommended Reading for Parents

Let's face it, good parenting is not an easy task and we can use all the help we can get.

For your convenience, all of these books should be available for purchase in our NorthCreek Church Bookstore.
