Resuming Worship Services In-Person
After much prayer, counsel, planning, and preparation, we are excited to announce that on July 5, at 9 & 11am, our morning services will resume at Northwest Bible Church!
We have been, and continue to monitor guidelines and best practices for gathering and are committed to creating an environment that allows us to meet in a safe and healthy way. To make that possible, we’ve taken steps to create a sanitary environment that allows for physical distancing.
We encourage you to make the best choice for your family and situation as you consider attending physically or continuing to worship with us online.
Starting July 5, we will resume our morning services at 9 and 11am. This will allow us adequate time to clean between services and allow guests to enter and exit the building in a safe fashion.
Doors will be opening 30 minutes prior to service (8:30 and 10:30am). If you arrive a bit earlier than that please be willing to remain in your vehicle until the doors open and we’re ready for you.
Nursery, Preschool, and NW Kids
At this time, Nursery, Preschool, and NW Kids will not be available. We look forward to opening those ministries at the appropriate time! Until then, we understand that you may not be ready to bring your little one out, or your nursery or preschooler might not be ready for a service in the Worship Center. We totally understand and would love to continue to worship with you online each Sunday morning!
For the past several months, we’ve been grateful for the ability to worship together online. We will continue to offer full services online.
If you or a family member doesn’t feel well, or if you’re just not ready to physically attend church, please continue to join us online. This is also a great option if you want to invite a friend to join you!
Full services will premiere Sundays at 9am on:
You’re part of the Northwest family no matter where you choose to attend!
Let’s Work Together to Stay Healthy
What We’re Doing:
- Staff, greeters, and volunteers serving indoors will be wearing masks.
- Staff and volunteers will refrain from handshakes, hugs, and physical contact.
- Additional hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building.
- All high-volume areas will be thoroughly sanitized prior to, between, and after services. This includes restrooms, countertops, pews, doors, and more.
- Nursery, Preschool, and NW Kids will not be available at this time.
- No water fountains will be open or usable.
- No hospitality food or beverages will be offered.
- No offering plates will be passed. You can continue to give online, mail your checks, or place your tithe into one of the offering boxes located at the Worship Center doors.
- Here are some simple instructions for how to start giving online.
- Every other pew will be blocked-off, and hosts will be stationed in the Worship Center to direct you to your seat.
- If you would like a mask or forget yours the Guest Services team will have them available.
How You Can Help:
- If you don’t feel well or have health concerns, please stay home and join us online.
- We encourage you to take the necessary health and safety precautions that you have set for you and your family.
- While it’s not required, we are encouraging you to wear a mask. This is one way you can help serve others as we work to make this a safe environment for each and every person attending. And if you forget yours, no problem! We’ll have one for you when you get here.
- Please wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often.
- Maintain a distance of six feet between yourself and other guests while seated in the Worship Center.
- At the conclusion of service please exit the building promptly as it will help us begin cleaning for the next service.
- Please bring your own pen or pencil for notes as we’ve removed all materials from the seat-backs.
