At Northminster, we have more than a comprehensive list of ministries.  We have a combination of reliable and sustainable ministries, and we have others that are still emerging. We believe that there are many more that are yet to be.  

The heart of the ministry of our church is in the lives of our people.  You can find them spread out across the Puget Sound and beyond through out the week.  This is really where our ministry is happening.  We strive to support our people as they live out their mission throughout the week.   

There are various entry points that are provided as a way of joining the our work and our ministry.  Your best bet is to check out our current events or to read through our newsletter to see what's happening this week.  You'll get a taste of what is going on and where to jump in. 

There is more to come. 


Children & Youth

Sunday Opportunities during worship at 10:30 am

  • We have a Sunday School class that meets following the Children’s Sermon in worship.

  • Many families choose to remain in the service together. Our balcony is equipped with toys and coloring items to keep young hands engaged during worship.

  • We have Sunday School for kids 1st-5th grade, as well as middle and high school students. Middle and high school students are welcome to stay in worship or attend Sunday School as well.

  • If you have questions about the best place for your child, please contact Rev. Zac Calvo at

  • We welcome children in worship and to the Communion Table

  • We aim to support our children to lead the congregation in worship. Children are welcome to join the congregation as Readers or as Worship Leaders.

  • In our Sunday School classes, we use a curriculum that engages our children in a personal faith while still maintaining a commitment to the biblical story.


Wednesday Night and Beyond

  • Middle School Youth Group (grades 5 and up) meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7pm, after the Community Night Meal.

  • We partner with our deacons to gather resources for Mary's Place



When we eat together, we share our lives.  Body and mind are nourished from this simple supper.  We welcome families and neighbors, those who call Northminster home and those who are opening the door for the first time.  Meal service begins at 6:30pm on Wednesday nights and finishes by 7pm.  

Dinner have you wanting more?  Stay from 7:00-7:30pm for Adult Formation opportunities and Youth Group for kids 8 and up. 

Theology on Tap

Where talk of God meets talk of culture

A gathering for adults ready to dive deeper into theology, what it means to practice faith in our post-modern age, and how it all relates to the latest Marvel movie. OK, we talk about Harry Potter sometimes too. Join us for great conversation! 21+ only.

We meet at Brother Barrel Pub in Lake City.


Choir & Music

"All music should have no other end and aim than the glory of God and the soul's refreshment." - Johann Sebastian Bach 


A Rich Heritage of Music

Composers, vocalists, and instrumentalists all find a challenging and enriching musical life. Our choir sings a wide variety of pieces and embraces the musical diversity of our faith heritage.


All Voices are Welcome

We welcome all levels of experience at all life stages.  We believe that singing is a formational practice.  It integrates the themes and messages of worship and it shapes the one who is making the music.


Talented Leadership

Our organist, Eric Johnson, leads worship with beauty and conviction.
