We are staying up-to-date on health recommendations and aligning our guidelines with San Francisco and California's mandates.
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 and want to do what is best for the health and safety of our New North Family.
The Apostle Paul makes it clear in Romans 13 that as believers we should seek to obey the civil authorities God has placed over us as best we can. Because of that, we are following the city’s health guidelines that masks are no longer required but strongly recommended, especially for unvaccinated people and our kids and students.
We want to love each other well, protect our most vulnerable, and want to be people of peace in the community God has placed us in. People can choose to wear masks around others whether it’s required or not for added protection.
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.
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.
