Four Steps

We want everyone to feel connected here at Northwoods. Take your next steps toward connection, membership, and service with the Four Steps classes! These classes will give a boost to your spiritual life, no matter where you are in your journey. You’ll hear the story behind Northwoods, our beliefs and values, and even what it means to be a member.

The Four Steps classes are available to take any time online. They are also being offered on our Peoria campus in February and in Chillicothe in March.


February 4 - Peoria & Chillicothe

Is there more to life than this? Who is Jesus? Why did He die? Why and how do I pray? Does God heal today?

Alpha looks at these and other questions, providing a practical introduction to the Christian faith. Over 11 weeks, Alpha explores the meaning of life, revealing that Christianity can be every bit as relevant to life today as it was 2,000 years ago. Join us for dinner at 6:30pm, followed by teaching and discussion in small groups. Dive into different issues, find out what others think, and make new friends along the way!

Get Free

January 28 - Peoria

Freedom is the ability to respond fully to God out of whom He created and redeemed you to be. Get Free provides a basis for seeking freedom and healing from physical, emotional, and spiritual issues. You will learn:
  • God’s value of you
  • God’s promises for freedom
  • How God changes us
  • How to hear God’s voice

Each week spend time discussing what you’ve learned with those at your table.


January 30

Are you looking for a place to find community and grow in your faith? Get involved in a small group! You're invited to Group Launch where you will have the chance to meet new people and join a small group. Dinner included!

Get Prayer

Canton & Peoria

We all have seasons when life gets complicated, confusing, or challenging—and we need people praying with us! Get Prayer is a safe place where prayer team members will listen and pray for you or for someone you are concerned about.

Understanding Israel

January 30

Have you ever wondered what God has to say about the promises that He made to Israel in the Old Testament and whether those promises still hold true today? As Gentiles, how do we play into those promises and the eternal, jealous love that God has for the Jewish people? This 4-week class will help answer such questions while also looking at the role of Jerusalem, exploring the covenants that God made with Israel, and considering what Paul says in the New Testament about Jews and Gentiles becoming “one new man.” The class will conclude with a traditional Passover Seder. Special Guest Speakers will include Cal Rychener and Taysir Abu Saada.
