Life at NorthStar
The book “The Trellis and the Vine” describes the relationship between “the people” and “the ministries”. The church – all of us – are the vine. We need a trellis – structure and shape and opportunities to minister, to serve, and to love one another. But the vine is the goal of the trellis, not the other way around. We seek to be in each other’s lives, to make disciples, to build one another up, and to share the gospel, and to be a loving beacon of light in our community.
Our philosophy of ministry is to support the vine – to provide ample opportunities for support and fellowship for the whole family – while not overloading the family with programs every night of the week. We want the ministries to be about the people.
