Gathering at 8:00, 9:45 and 11:30 a.m.

During our re-gathering phase at Northside, we will host three services on Sunday mornings at 8:00, 9:45 and 11:30. These service times provide us with an extended transition time to sanitize high traffic areas, plus it allows us to seat more people in our new spaced out seating arrangement. An overflow space will be available in our new High School Worship Space adjacent to our main lobby.

We know many of you have been ready to gather together in person for weeks. We know many of you may not be ready to gather in person yet, whether you are in a high risk category or just don’t feel like it is a good option for you or your family. And, we honor and respect wherever you may land. We encourage you to make the best choice for your family and situation as you consider attending an in-person service or continuing to worship online. Our online services will match the times of our in-person services.

What to Expect at an In-Person Service

Spaced out seating

Physical distancing is encouraged and expected. Seats and rows will be rearranged in our Worship Center to create more distance. Family units can sit together, but two seats of space will be left between each family unit.

Touchless experience

Service will be a touchless experience. Single-serve communion can be picked up as you enter. Plus, we will continue to use text-to-check to complete our connection books, and sermon notes will be available online. You can continue to give online; offering boxes will be located at the back of the Worship Center.

Masks and cleaning

Masks are not required but encouraged, especially during transition times when physical distancing is difficult to maintain. You will see some of our volunteers in masks. All high-traffic areas will be cleaned and sanitized between services.

Programming changes

No nursery, children’s classes or youth programming will be offered during this phase. Pack an activity bag or grab a Praise Pack from our children’s team on Sunday morning to help engage your children with the message. No Sunday morning Bible studies will meet in-person at the building. No coffee will be served.

You May Choose to Worship at Home

All of our services will be live streamed on Facebook and YouTube at 8:00, 9:45 and 11:30 a.m. Continuing to worship online may be a great option for you if you are in a high risk category, immuno-compromised or just aren’t quite comfortable with returning yet.

If you are feeling ill, are experiencing any symptoms or have potentially been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you continue to worship online.
