Four Steps

Take your next steps towards connection, membership, and service.

We want everyone to feel connected at Northwoods. Take your next steps in the Four Steps classes! These classes will expand your spiritual life, no matter where you are on your journey. Learn the history of Northwoods, our beliefs and values, and even what being a member here means.

The Four Steps are made up of four classes that include a mixture of teaching and activities for you to do. Once you've completed the Four Steps, you can attend a connection meeting with a Northwoods staff member where you can get answers to any questions you might have. You'll also have the opportunity to become a member of Northwoods and can take your next steps to joining our volunteer Dream Team!
