This fall is different for all of us in ways we never expected. Work, school, and community all look different than they did a year ago. Perhaps in midst of social isolation, you’ve found yourself wondering what true authentic community looks like. Or have you wondered if God sees and speaks to regular people? Have you considered this might be the time to read the Bible – whether for the first time or at a deeper level – but are intimidated to get started? Join us as we dive in to the book of Acts together this fall.
Acts is a story of diverse and authentic communities where everyone is treated as equals. It’s a story of how God took a group of ordinary people and empowered them for good works and for the building up of His church. And, it’s a story of God’s provision and presence. Together we’ll take 11 weeks to walk through the entire book together. Each week, there will be a study guide with questions, a video teaching, and resources for families. Each week you’ll come together to discuss with your group what you’ve read and begin putting the things you are learning about community into practice. No matter your age, background, or church experience, we invite you to join us as we spend time in Acts – a story of average people being used by God in incredible ways!
To kick off our study of Acts, we spent 10 mornings together in prayer. And yet, when those 10 days were over, in many ways it felt like we were just getting started. So, we’re continuing in prayer together over the next 10 weeks and we’d love to invite you to join us! At the very beginning of the book of Acts, we find the followers of Jesus waiting in the upper room as Jesus directed them. Well we’re going to do that too! They met in the Upper room; we’re going to meet in the Upper Zoom. In one united effort we are going to meet on Monday mornings online to pray and wait on God. Everyone is welcome!
Throughout Acts, we read of both men and women accepting Christ and then immediately being baptized as an outward expression of the grace of God in their lives. If you profess faith in Jesus but have never been baptized, perhaps now is the time to consider what has been preventing you (Acts 8:36). Baptisms are happening at all campuses in early November. To get more information or to talk to a staff member, register through the link above. We’d love to walk alongside of you as you consider this next step in your faith.
Friday, November 13 and 14 with both in-person and virtual options.
As we’ve read throughout Acts, since the beginning of the Christian Church, there has been a commitment from believers to care for vulnerable people. With this conviction in mind, join us for the Imagine Conference to collaborate on effective ways to serve Pittsburgh and the world through mentoring, refugee care, engaging in racial reconciliation efforts, seeking justice through combating human trafficking, embracing life, adoption and foster care, and supporting local and global missions. You won’t want to miss out on learning from this year’s keynote speakers, Will Ford and Matt Lockett, authors of The Dream King, who will be inspiring conference participants by sharing their remarkable story of racial reconciliation and missional engagement. We’ll also hear from many different perspectives throughout the entire conference that will equip us to make a transformational difference with our lives in addressing some of the most significant challenges that our world is currently facing.

One of the markers of the early church was their generosity to those in need. Perhaps one way to reflect that same generosity within your own group is to consider participating together in One Warm Coat. We are collecting new or gently used, clean coats, hats & gloves for infants, children and adults. These will be distributed to various ministries throughout the Pittsburgh region to provide for those in need this winter. We are working with our partners to provide for their specific needs during this unique season so please go to One Warm Coat to tell us more about your donation. Please drop off donations in the bins located in your campus lobby through November 22. Thank you for your generosity!
Note: Dormont and Beaver Valley – you will be collecting TOYS for your local mission partners. More information will come from your Campus Pastors.
At North Way, one of the best ways to connect with others, grow in faith, and serve together in community is to join a small group. We believe it’s in these smaller environments where life-change happens best. Small groups are just what they sound like – small groups of people joining together to get to know each other, ask questions, and learn more about who God is.
Small groups meet all across our city in backyards, neighborhood parks, church buildings, living rooms, and of course – on Zoom! As you scroll down, you’ll notice groups are tagged with a “meets online” banner if they are a virtual group.
