WAYS TO WORSHIP

NorthPark's Sunday worship in the sanctuary resumed on Sunday, May 23, 2021. The church campus opened for activities Monday, May 3, 2021. 

Here are a few highlights to keep in mind:

General Guidelines for All Gatherings

The following safety protocols will be followed for all events:
  • Masks are optional with the exception of staff and volunteers working in the church Nursery.
  • Social distancing encouraged.

Worship

Join us on Sunday for in-person worship at 8:30 & 11:00 AM or worship with us online at 11:00 AM. 

NOTE: Summer is almost here! Memorial Day – Labor Day (May 29 – September 4), the 11:00 AM service is moving to 10:00 AM. The 8:30 AM service will be on summer hiatus July 3 – September 4. Regular worship schedule resumes on kick-off Sunday, September 11.

Communion is celebrated each Sunday during the early service and the first Sunday of each month at the 11:00 AM service. Also, communion is received by intinction. The communion server will tear off a piece of bread, hand it to you, and you may dip it in the cup. If you prefer to use pre-packaged communion elements, you may find them in the Narthex.
