What to Expect
We want you to be able to experience the great music, encouraging messages, and friendly people that make up our services at Northridge Church and discover that we really are "a hospital for the hurting."
We know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions. How do I get there... what's available for my kids... what should I expect in church? So, here's a quick look at what you can expect at Northridge Church.
What time does the service begin?
Northridge meets Sundays at 9:00am for Bible Study and 10:00am for Morning Worship Service.
How do I get there?
We meet at 2075 East 9 Mile Rd in Northeast Pensacola. We are located ½ mile east of the University of West Florida main entrance.
What's available for my kids?
We offer classes for ages birth through 2nd grade which are divided throughout different classrooms in our children's ministry building based on age. Children in grades 3 through 5 join with their families in the sanctuary and then are dismissed after worship for children's church in our FMC building.
At Northridge, your child's safety and security are our priority. Our workers are carefully trained and our children's ministry building is equipped with a video monitoring system to ensure safety as well as provide you with a way to observe how your child is being cared for.
What should I expect in church?
When you arrive, our greeting team will be available to help you find anything you need, including where and how to check in children to their classes. As you enter our main sanctuary, our greeting team will welcome you, give you a bulletin and help you find a seat. The bulletin will tell you some of the latest about what's going on at Northridge. If it's your first time, don't forget to stop by our visitor's table in the Foyer for an information pack and a free gift.
Enjoy the Northridge experience.
We hope it will become the best hours of your week. Our church is blessed to have many talented musicians and vocalists who will lead us in vibrant Spirit-led worship. Then, our pastor, Charles Stanford, will share timeless truths that are insightful, interesting, and engaging. There is time at the end of each service where people can come to the front and receive prayer for any need.
Check out our Information Center after the gathering.
In the foyers, you can find information about our Small Groups, previous messages on CD, and information about our various ministries. Stick around and meet some of the staff and/or other friendly members. Feel free to ask any questions about Northridge Church as you get to know us better after the service.
