Safety is our priority

COVID-19 Updates

After a significant amount of prayer and preparation, we have resumed services.  We’re continuing to monitor guidelines and best practices for gathering in a safe way.  We're committed to creating an environment that meets government recommendations for safety.  To make that possible, our weekend services have been redesigned to create a touchless environment that allows for physical distancing.  
This includes significantly reduced capacity.



With careful planning, we’re excited to offer our Northgate Kids ministry at our locations!
Like our redesigned weekend services, we’re taking additional steps to keep our Northgate Kids environments safe  (and fun) for your family.

  • We’ve increased hygiene and cleaning protocols in our Northgate Kids spaces during and between services.
  • Additional hand-sanitizing stations will be available in Northgate Kids check-in and hallway area.
  • All toys and hard surfaces will be sanitized at every service.

When you arrive, be ready for a redesigned check-in process to help support a safe environment.

  • Every staff member, volunteer, and child in Northgate Kids will have their temperature taken before checking in to Northgate Kids.  We aren’t able to check in anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher.
  • Our touchless experience will extend to check-in as Northgate Kids volunteers will help you at the check-in kiosks and handle sign-in sheets for you.
  • We encourage you to only send one parent into Northgate Kids for drop-off and pick-up to help limit traffic in the hallways.
  • Be sure to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before entering Northgate Kids. Encourage your child to do the same.
  • You’ll see lots of big waves, but let’s avoid hugs, high-fives, and handshakes.

We’ll all need to work together to help keep Northgate Kids safe, 
so please stay home and participate in Northgate Kids Online if your child:
  • Has had a fever in the past 14 days.
  • Shows any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Has been around anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Northgate Church Online

Remember: You can always attend Northgate Church Online if you or a family member doesn’t feel well,
