We will be working with health and government officials and updating you along the way, about how we will continue to phase into the building.
What is the “Family Service”?
Phase 1 of Reentry
Under the guidelines of government officials, Northplace began in-person Phase-In services on May 30th. However, things will be different than usual.
While we cannot guarantee a germ-free environment, we are taking steps to help prevent transmission of Covid-19. You can read more about those steps below. If you are sick, have a fever, present any signs of cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has had COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please stay home.
Our Guidelines for Your Safety
Our sanctuary has been re-set to allow for social distancing. We’ve measured and observed the federal standards – six feet between family units.
During Phase 1, we will have our auditorium services only. There will be no kids ministry activities, nursery or childcare. Small groups will not meet in person and will continue to meet online. And for now…Youth service will be streamed live online on Wednesday evenings.
To help prevent the spread of infection, we are recommending (not requiring) that everyone wears a face mask.
Common areas and gathering spaces of the building will be closed. That includes the coffee bar and any place where people might congregate.
Before every service, the sanctuary and all high-touch surfaces will be disinfected. We will only allow people in the room after that procedure is complete.
Hand sanitizing stations are set up throughout the building. We encourage their frequent use.
If you need to sneeze or cough, please cover your mouth and nose or sneeze into your elbow.
We will continually wipe down surfaces in the restrooms and other high-touch areas.
We will not distribute any printed materials. Offering envelopes will be placed on the chairs. Extras will be removed and destroyed between services.
Greeters will not shake hands, hug, or high five. Instead, we will air hug, wave, and smile.
We encourage you to continue giving online. We will not be receiving an offering during service. Offerings will be collected in designated areas as people leave the auditorium.
Parking & Entering/Exiting
When you arrive, you will be directed to a parking lot. You will need to wait in your car until approximately fifteen minutes before the service. When the sanctuary has been cleared and disinfected, you will be invited to enter.
Entering & Exiting the Building
When you enter the building, you will be directed to a seating area for your family. We will seat people from the front of the room to the back of the room. After service, we will dismiss you and direct you on exiting the building to ensure a quick, safe exit.
