Our Ministries

Sunday School (all ages)

North Scott offers Sunday School classes for every age from nursery through adult every Sunday of the year. Classes meet from 9:15 to 10:10 am. All classes currently use Answers Bible Curriculum, studying through the Bible in three years. Since each class studies the same passage, parents can connect and reinforce themes with their children. We are intentional about memorizing God's Word and meet together for a 15-minute opening the first Sunday of each month.

Children and Youth

Kids' Lighthouse Clubs (Grades K-6)

Designed for students in grades 1-6, Kids' Lighthouse Club meets on Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00 p.m., from September through April. Club opening consists of pledges to the Bible, Christian Flag and American Flag, singing and a Bible or mission story. Students then break into age-appropriate classes to memorize Bible verses to earn awards. The final half hour includes games, award presentations and a short closing.

T.S.T. Youth Group

TST stands for Teens Seeking Truth. Young people in junior and senior high school meet together weekly September through April from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. The study of God's Word and application to life is the primary focus. Teen-led group activities, student-led worship, small group prayer time, Bible study, Bible memorization, and refreshment/fellowship comprise the time together. Monthly activities include bonfires, hayrides, Christmas caroling, Valentine visits to seniors, bowling, and get-togethers at teen homes.

Fellowship/Bible Study

Women's Bible Study

Women's daytime Bible study/fellowship groups meet weekly, typically in homes, on a day chosen by the class members. Studies alternate between a book of the Bible book and topical subjects. Leadership is shared by laywomen. See the "Calendar" page for current information or contact us for more details.

Men's Fellowship

Men's Fellowship meets Monday nights from September through May at the homes of group members.

Daytime Fellowship

Daytime Fellowship meets at 9:00 a.m. the third Thursday of each month at Dino's Restaurant in Portage for brunch and fellowship. All are welcome.

Thursday Night Home Bible Study

The Thursday night Bible study meets weekly from September through April to study a book of the Bible. The goal is to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. All interested are welcome.

Choir Program

The adult choir (grade 7 and up) ministers in service from October through May, rehearsing weekly from 8-9 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. Repertoire ranges from timeless anthems to arrangements of new hymns, from Celtic spirit to traditional American melodies, from sacred classics to gospel-style cheer.


Missions support has been an integral part of the church's focus since 1909 with regular monetary and prayer support supplemented by personal correspondence for missionaries serving in foreign countries and in the U.S. Additionally, the annual Pardeeville Community Car and Truck Show, a unique local project whose purpose is to be a witness for Christ and raise funds for various missions and charities, is actively supported by the congregation.
