COVID-19 Updates

Updated: December 19, 2020

We're gathering in-person and online.

Join us in-person on Sundays at 9 and 10:30 AM.

You can also stream our services on Facebook and YouTube.

In light of the rising cases of Covid-19 in Kansas City and the updated COVID-19 guidelines issued by Kansas City, we thought it appropriate to let you know how we are addressing these issues in an effort to provide as safe an environment as possible.

  • We have reduced the number of chairs in the sanctuary to provide even greater distance between household groups.

  • We are now reopening the previously closed nursery and 3 & 4-year-old rooms for Sunday Morning Worship on Sunday, December 13th. We will still be offering children’s church for Kindergarten-5th grade where 6 feet of social distance can be maintained where we already had been, in addition to this reopening of nursery and preschool classes during both services.

  • We will continue to require that masks be worn (adults and kids 5 years and older) at all times while indoors.

  • We recently upgraded our live streaming equipment so that those who are joining us online will have an even better experience than before.

In his word, God instructs us to continue to meet together, to encourage one another and otherwise help each other to live the Christian life; and we want you to know that these measures are taken now with the understanding that they will not continue indefinitely, as if to become the ‘new normal’ at Northland. At the same time, we have committed ourselves to following the governing authorities and to do what is necessary to protect our own members from needless risk.

Staying Connected

  • The best way to stay connected with Northland is to subscribe to the eNews, our weekly newsletter, which we send each week with important updates.

  • Transform Student Ministry and Prayer Ministry are still happening Wednesday Nights.

  • Many of our ministries are still meeting. Check out our calendar for more info!

Before attending in-person Northland gatherings:

  • Self-screen to confirm no signs of illness, paying particular attention to symptoms associated with COVID-19.

  • Do not attend in-person if you or a child in your family are experiencing any of the following symptoms: persistent cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fever, chills, shaking, body aches, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell.

  • If you have symptoms associated with COVID-19, do not attend in-person until at least 10 days have passed since the start of symptoms, you have been fever free (unmedicated) for 24 hours, and other symptoms are improving.

  • If you have been exposed to an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19, self-quarantine and do not attend in-person for at least 14 days from the date of exposure.

While attending in-person:

  • Maintain a safe six-foot social distance from everyone outside of your household.

  • Wear a face covering (adults and kids 5 years and older) at all times while indoors on our campus.

  • Sit with your household while attending a service. Please allow at least two chairs between each household or family.

  • All meeting spaces will be arranged to allow for social distancing. Each ministry space is unique, and seating will allow for social distancing between each family, group or individual party.

  • Be advised: Cleaning procedures have been enhanced, but we cannot guarantee that all surfaces are sanitized all the time.

After attending in-person:

  • If you or a child in your family tests positive for COVID-19 within two days of attending an in-person Northland gathering, please notify the leader of the ministry which you or your child attended.

  • Be advised: There is no campus-wide contact tracing program for in-person Northland gatherings.

  • Members of Northland will be notified if we learn of a positive case of COVID-19 and if the person attended a Northland event within 1-week of testing positive. Names and personal information will remain anonymous.

Caring for One Another Financially

We encourage all our members to give generously and joyfully, especially as we consider the people and families who are facing financial difficulty as a result of industry closures. If you are a member of Northland and have a desire to help us care for other Members experiencing financial hardship, you can give to the Love Your Neighbor fund.
