Gathering at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m.

During our re-gathering phase at Northside, we will host three services on Sunday mornings at 9:00 and 10:45. 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.

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 we encourage you to leave two seats of space 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 required during our 9:00 a.m. service for anyone age 12 or older. Masks are encouraged, especially during transition times when physical distancing is difficult to maintain, during our 10:45 service. You will see most of our volunteers in masks. All high-traffic areas will be cleaned and sanitized between services.

Programming changes

Kids and youth programming resumes on August 2. All volunteers in our kids and youth areas will be wearing masks. Learn more about the precautions our kids and youth programs are taking here.

Our adult Sunday morning growth groups are resuming over the next several weeks.

You May Choose to Worship at Home

All of our services will be live streamed on Facebook and YouTube at 9:00 and 10:45 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.
