We miss each of you and look forward to the day we can safely be together again, in-person. The million-dollar question in everyone's mind right now is this: When will we return to in-person gatherings? To be honest, the answer to that question is still somewhat unknown. That's not indecisive but rather because this is a very fluid situation. Our NorthField family is one of the larger and more diverse gatherings in our county.
Our state and national leaders are developing guidelines to reopen our country. As we seek to be God's family to this community, we want our plans to be in compliance with government guidelines. As we formulate our next steps, our greatest concern is to balance both serving and protecting our entire community, giving special emphasis to the most vulnerable people in our church family and the surrounding area.
To help us achieve that, we would like to get your input, ideas and suggestions as we develop a plan to return to in-person gatherings. We have created a survey to express your thoughts and concerns and can't express how important it is to hear from you. Some of the questions may be difficult to answer, and you may not be certain about where you stand. That's okay. This is all new to each of us, and we will work through this together as any family would. Just be as honest and complete as you can at this moment with your answers.
(As we are able to return to in-person gatherings we will most likely return in phases. Phase 1 will be our 9 and 10:30am worship services only. This will be a family worship experience with no children or student classes.)

Our greatest desires are to lead this family faithfully in worship each week, keep you connected to us and each other, find needs in our family and community and meet them and most importantly, continue to love God, love people and make Jesus known. Please let us know how we can serve you, help you or be of assistance to you during this season. You can put that on your digital connection card each week or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
