FAQ

We know that checking out a new church can be intimidating! Here's a list of some of the most common questions people may have before deciding to join us in person or online.

When will New North officially start meeting in person again?

As the Bay Area begins to reopen, we’re excited to finally offer more ways to gather in person. On June 6, 2021, we will begin meeting regularly every Sunday at 9am at our San Francisco campus located on 777 Brotherhood Way, San Francisco, CA 94132.

If you can’t make it onsite yet, we’ll still be meeting for Church Online at 9am, 11am & 5pm (PT) on Facebook, YouTube and our website.

Know that we are still making plans to add an additional service. At this time we do not know what time the service will be and when we will be able to launch it. One thing is for sure, we’ll need many more volunteers to come back and serve with us again.

Where is New North Church meeting on Sundays?

We’re meeting at our temporary San Francisco campus located on:


777 Brotherhood Way
San Francisco, CA 94132 


We rent Lake Merced Church of Christ’s (LMCC) auditorium and classroom spaces all week long. On Sunday’s, you might see LMCC’s congregation as they meet on the campus at 10:45am. We’ve been working alongside their leadership team and have a great relationship with them. Even though we are two different churches, we are working together to make and mature followers of Jesus Christ.

We are continuing to pursue a permanent facility on the upper Peninsula. You can learn more about the future of our church here

When will children and student ministries resume on Sunday?

Our Generations Ministry continues to remain a top priority at New North. Starting on July 25, 2021, we will be welcoming back our Preschool and Nursery aged children (0-5 years) for Sunday ministries at 9am. All individuals (2 years and older) will be required to wear a mask while inside the Generations Building.

We offer weekly lessons for preschool and elementary aged students on Facebook and Youtube every Thursday. Teacher Sam also hosts Park Days every Wednesday at Cuernavaca Park in Burlingame. See more information here.

For middle school and high school students, Life Groups meet weekly and you can learn more here. 

What safety precautions are being taken in light of COVID-19?

We are staying up-to-date on state health recommendations and want to do what is best for the health and safety of our New North Family.

With the commitment of cultivating an authentic community of believers who love and serve people, we want to be respectful of our community, our neighbors, and the congregation that’s sharing their building with us. 


As of July 2021, all Bay Area counties encourage that everyone, even if vaccinated, wear face coverings in indoor public places as a precaution against the increased circulation of COVID-19. You can read more about San Francisco’s face covering guidance here.

As we open our children and student spaces, all individuals (2 years and older) will be required to wear a face mask while inside the Generations Building.

Hand sanitizer will be made available throughout the building and face masks are available at the welcome kiosk. 


Any communion elements, coffee or snacks are individually wrapped and handled by a small team. Frequent sanitization of common surfaces occurs before and after services and throughout the week. 


Pre-registration for Sunday worship service is not required but there will be a sign-in when arriving at church. If you are sick or have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, we ask that you join us for Church Online.

What does New North believe about Water Baptism?

What does New North believe about Baby Dedication?

Mark 10 tells of how Jesus was at a house teaching his disciples privately. Upon hearing about Jesus, people began “bringing children to him that he might touch them” but his disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw that, he told them to “let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.“


Jesus clearly stated that “whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” Then Jesus took the children in his arms and blessed them, by laying his hands on them.


Here at New North Church, we do not baptize babies or small children, instead we dedicate them to the Lord. We believe that baptism is for those who have personally trusted in Christ as Savior and Lord and really are at a point where they understand what that means. At our Baby Dedication services, we have the opportunity to bring children to the Lord as an expression of our faith, to reaffirm the Christ-centered role of parents, and as a body to show support to parents and families as they commit their children to Him. 


If you would like to dedicate a child in your family, please contact our Kids Director, Sam Cerdena, at samc@newnorth.church.
