At Northpoint, we believe that circles are better than rows because it’s through our connection with others that life change happens. In groups, people find a space to belong, receive care, and are encouraged to pursue healthy relationships and spiritual growth. We currently offer community groups for couples, men, women, and young singles. We also offer a variety of short-term groups.
Community groups meet either at Northpoint or in host homes throughout the Austin area. Groups meet weekly and generally last from 18-24 months. Currently, we have groups for couples, men, women, and young singles. Though topics of study vary, the purpose of groups is to create a place where you can pursue healthy relationships and grow spiritually.
Hear about the first-hand impact of groups:
"Our group leader is always willing to go the extra mile-whether that means sharing something very personal or dropping everything to help a member in need. His dedication to our group shows and has made our group a community we can count on and look forward to attending!"
"My group has helped me to not only grow in my faith but to see that there's always a reason for what I'm going through and that God never has and never will abandon me or fail me. Our leaders have shown each of us that we're loved and accepted and cared for, no matter what is going on."
Starting Point is an 8-week conversational small group environment where people can explore faith and experience community. Starting Point groups are a safe place for people with questions about faith as well as those who want to learn about the Bible and Christianity. Groups consist of people who are curious about Christianity, those who have recently started a relationship with God, or those who are reconnecting with God after being away from church for a while.

What if there are other reasons why your marriage really matters, reasons beyond the hum of daily life? What if, with some time, intention, and an understanding of why God created marriage, we could see how our marriage makes us better able to love, serve, and heal? And what if our marriage really matters, not only for ourselves and our family, but also, for the world?
Pathfinders are parents of children who have special needs and who are navigating new and different roads for their children and for themselves. This group provides an opportunity for parents to come together in support of each other no matter where you are on the journey and no matter what type of special needs your child has.
Every group needs a leader
