Keep scrolling for in-person options and guidelines.
Update: Service INFO July will be on-line only services We will update on a week by week bases. When we do return to in-person services the following protocols will be in place.
Please trust that we continue to make the best decisions we can with the information we have and the wisdom we seek from God. EVERYTHING WE DO NOW IS EXPERIMENTAL. We will evaluate from week to week and make advancements in our stages as we feel it's best for our church family.
This is the tiered approach for a safe and meaningful reopening that will honor the CDC's recommendations for social distancing and best health and safety practices.
NORTHPOINT'S STAGE 1* for meeting together on-site: => We the timing is appropriate. Northpoint will hold services in person at 10:15am. This will be a reservation-only service and there will be a limit of 50 reservations. We ask that you reserve a spot for each person from your family who plans on attending. Reservations will be first come / first serve. Please use your Church Center App to register - registration will open on Thursdays each week.
=>Continuing to worship online may be the best option for some of you and we consider online worship as a valuable and meaningful option. If you are healthy and do not have any of the limiting situations (see below) we encourage you to prayerfully consider join us in person.
SHOULD EVERYONE COME BACK? While we'd love to see each of you, we know there are some limitations that may prevent you from attending. Please review the following limitations. If you find yourself in one of the categories, please continue worshiping online:
senior citizen - cdc recommend 65 or older
at risk or have a compromised immune system
sick or have been around anyone that has been sick
your family unit has children who would not be able to practice social distancing
- all children who can adhere to these standards are welcome
you are more comfortable worshiping at home
Whether or not you are able to return to physical gatherings at this time, the most important thing is that we stay spiritually and relationally connected as a church family – in person or online!
WHAT TO EXPECT...Northpoint's role: - We ask that you remain in your cars until 10 minutes before the services begin. Doors will open at 10:05am. There will be family friendly engagement on the screen in the sanctuary while you wait for the service to start. -Our volunteers (ushers, greeters, etc.) will be wearing gloves and masks as they assist with your entry and seating. -Doors will be held open by volunteers with masks and gloves to minimize participants touching surfaces -We will not be passing the offering buckets or have worship folders.

Masks are required for everyone 10 years old and up as y0u enter and exit the building. Once you are seated and worship has began, it is discretionary. If our county has different standards in place we will follow those guidelines. We will do this to show others we care about them. This is a great example to each other and the children of Northpoint how we can serve all. -Sanitize your hands at our stations. -Keep physical distance from other attendees (6 feet); do not gather in groups before or after the service; please wave and say hello from a distance. NO HUGGING PLEASE. -Please do not attend if you haveany symptoms of any illness within the past 14 days
We refer to our worship times as experiences. We want to gather and experience God. We do that through engaging music, friendly people, times of giving and relevant sermons that teach us how to practically follow the teachings of Jesus.
We want you to come as you are. We dress comfortably and want to create a safe place for you to be yourself.
Our Sunday morning worship experiences are casual-- doughnuts and coffee are served before in the foyer.
Our Saturday night worship experiences are even more casual and laid back than Sunday-- we serve a variety of snacks and drinks during the worship experience.

How we live
At Northpoint we love God and serve all. This is how we do it:
This is whatever we place the most value on in our lives. We all worship something or someone. We believe God wants us to value Him above anything or anyone else.
This is becoming like Jesus...becoming a student of Jesus. Discipleship is Jesus' preferred method of evangelism, making more disciples and better disciples.
Fellowship is sharing, not just thoughts, ideas or a meal together. It's sharing everything like a family. We desire to show the attributes of Jesus...we cannot do that by ourselves. There must be others involved.
Whoever wants to be great must be a servant. Jesus lived this out. The foundation of Christian life is service to God lived out through service to others. It's a self-emptying, God-centered, others focused, sacrificial service.
God gives freely to us and He invites us to be givers because being a giver changes us. God teaches us to give our finances and our faith! Our mission is to give God away!
