Small groups are where ministry takes place, relationships develop and people are encouraged and supported. Small groups give us an opportunity – no matter how “big” Northstar gets in our gatherings – to be “small” together. Whether in homes, dorm rooms, coffee shops or apartments, we’re scattered all over town, almost every night of the week. We gather to encourage one another in life as we seek to be authentic followers of Jesus Christ.
All of our groups are off during the summer. Click here for information about our BIGsmallGroup that meets on the first Wednesday of each month during the summer!

Monday Small Groups
Noble Small Group
The Noble group is sermon-based (which can be awkward since the “preacher” is in the group). There are snacks weekly to make up for that though. We have a mixed demographic with young adults, older and younger couples. All are welcome. We try to wrap up each week by 8pm so that you can plan ahead. Guests are always welcome!
Seaton Small Group
Our group meets over ZOOM only, and we are going through the "Psalms 119" video series by Matt Chandler. Each week, we watch a 10 minute clip and have discussions as guided by a list of questions. We enjoy our fellowship together and spend some time in intentional prayer for our families, community and world.
Kuczmarski Small Group
We are a group of young professionals and families meeting on Monday nights to grow in our faith. We utilize Bible study video series from RightNow Media to kick off our discussion and reflect on Scripture. We enjoy sharing life together and praying for one another. If you’re looking for a laid back small group that’s rooted in God’s Word, we’d love for you to join us!
Simpson Small Group
We are a group of graduate students and young professionals meeting together weekly on Monday nights. We are currently studying different passages of Scripture using the Discovery Bible Study method. This allows us to dig into a specific part of the Bible and approach it from a humble perspective. We regularly spend time in prayer for each other, and we try to stay connected outside of the group meeting times! We would love for you to join. us.
Wednesday Small Groups
Yalung Small Group
Our small group meets together on Wednesday nights in the Yalung home. We are a group people across a variety of life stages which helps enrich our discussion time together. Currently, we are working through a video study based off of the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan. Each week we begin our time in fellowship and prayer, watch the week's video lesson together, and then break into group discussion. Hosting this group has made Wednesdays our family's favorite night of the week.
Lavinder Small Group
We are a group of graduate students, older folks, and young professionals meeting together weekly in a hybrid (in-person/zoom) format on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m.. We are currently studying the Book of John examining John’s use of “believe” and “faith” and other unique and interesting language and symbolism utilized by John to show how it is MOST important that we believe in Jesus as the Son of God. We regularly spend time in prayer for each other and try to stay connected outside of the group meeting times! We would love for you to join us.
Farnsworth Small Group
We are a group of young families (including singles!) who meet together on Wednesday nights. We are currently studying the book of Esther, but also like to sprinkle in topical studies, such as a video series on "Race and the Gospel" or "Meaning of Marriage". Wednesday's are a great time of fellowship and study, including separate men's and women's times of prayer following the main study. Our group is very relational and you will often find us hanging out around Blacksburg/Christiansburg outside of Wednesday nights.
Thursday Small Groups
Petersen Small Group
This women’s small group is going through an Elijah study by Priscilla Shirer. Women from different generations come together and walk through life side by side. We share, we cry and we pray together. Our relationships aren’t limited to just these times, but we meet outside of the Thursday meetings as well.
Drake Small Group
We are a fun group who walk through topic studies. We have people from all walks of life and all are welcome!
Brooks Small Group
We are a group of graduate students and young professionals meeting together weekly on Thursday nights. We are currently digging deeper into the book of Hebrews exploring the superiority of Jesus. We regularly spend time in prayer for each other, and we try to stay connected outside of the group meeting times! We would love for you to join us.
