Coronavirus Updates

NEW COVID-19 POLICIES

We love worshiping with our Church family. The time that we spend together in worship is one of the best parts of our week. Due to the recent up-take in Covid 19 cases the Pastors and Staff have prayerfully made the decision to pause on some ministry activities for the foreseeable future. We will continue to have in person Worship and Kid’s Church at 10:30am on Sunday Mornings. All other life groups, fellowships, and events will not be meeting on campus at this time.

Please continue to pray for guidance and wisdom as we navigate the best ways to worship together safely. Your patience and understanding are of great comfort in this time of the unknow.

Following are a few of the steps we are taking to ensure the health and safety of our church family. 

  • In-person Sunday worship services will continue at limited capacity. Service time is 10:30am
  • Worship seating will be according to CDC and local government recommendations of ½ capacity. Please leave two chairs vacant between seated parties.
  • An overflow area will be designated in the Fellowship Hall. This room is also available for those wishing to exit the sanctuary with children that are having a tough day.
  • All Sunday worship services are available live and online on YouTube
  • Sermon notes will be available on your electronic devices or you can pick up a printed copy in the foyer if you wish. We will not have a printed bulletin.
  • If you have any Covid-related symptoms, or have knowingly been exposed, PLEASE do not attend in-person services. Instead, worship together with us online.
  • Kid’s Church for ages 3 years (potty trained) through 5th grade will be provided at this time. The children will be in the gymnasium and asked to sit at tables of 4 children for the activities. All children and volunteers will have their temperature taken at the entrance. All volunteers and staff will wear masks.
  • While we are an affectionate church, we strongly discourage all physical contact (hugs, handshakes, etc). While you may be comfortable with this contact, we ask that you lovingly respect others in their concerns.
  • High touch surfaces and areas (doors, seating, bathrooms, etc) will be thoroughly sanitized before services and throughout the week.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the building. Please utilize these stations regularly.
  • We have provided online (https://onrealm.org/NorthridgeChurc/-/give/now) and ‘no touch’ wall box options for giving.
  • While masks are not required for attenders, you are strongly encouraged to wear one until you reach your socially distanced seating area. Masks will be available for you as you enter the lobby, if needed.
  • Masks are required for all church staff and volunteers serving in all positions.
  • Vulnerable individuals (refer to CDC criteria in FAQ section below) are strongly encouraged to use personal wisdom in choosing whether to worship in person, or remain online for safety at this time.
  • All in person Life Groups, activities, and events will pause for the foreseeable future.  Group Leaders will contact participants concerning the availability of meeting virtually on Zoom.
  • Life Groups: Online AND/OR in person in homes or at common public areas (following CDC and local government guidelines).
