Welcome Home

 

The sudden transition that our church made in March to a fully-online experience was disheartening and full of challenges for our staff as well as everyone who calls TrueNorth home. However, as soon as we entered into this unique and unpredictable season, we were confident that a regathering would occur and thus we began making plans for how we might regather in the safest and most accommodating way.

We are ecstatic to announce that we have set that regathering date for Sunday, August 30th. Our church family will regather on Sundays at 9am and 11am in 4 unique environments that we believe will allow the most people to attend in a way that is sensitive to medical concerns and personal safety.

Please take a look a this video to hear this exciting announcement from our Lead Pastor, Steve Davis!

  • In which environments are masks required?

    Upon regathering, masks will be required inside all buildings at TrueNorth for everyone elementary age and above including the main auditorium building and TrueKidz buildings. Masks will be provided for anyone who needs them.

  • Why are masks required indoors?

    Our leadership has met extensively over the past several months considering what measures might need to be in place for our regathering. The decision to require masks indoors was informed by consultation with our medical advisory team as well as in consideration of numerous other churches and organizations which have assisted our pastors with advice on proper safety measures.

    As we strive to create an environment that is available and comfortable for those who desire to worship indoors, we feel that requiring masks from the start allows us to honor those with medical concerns and to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This decision is not based from a place of fear, but rather a place of love and compassion.

    Philippians 2:3 reminds believers to “regard one another as more important than yourselves.” As we consider the example of servant leadership taught by Jesus, we believe that wearing a mask indoors at our church positions our people to serve those around them and love them in the best way at this time.

    Our outdoor environments provide adequate space for assembling at a safe and considerate distance. To this end, masks will not be required in our outdoor spaces.

  • What do I need to know about the outdoor environment?

    We are so excited to open our brand new temporary outdoor environment!

    This environment includes 2 large screens that will be viewable on our green spaces in front on the main auditorium building. We encourage these attendees to bring an outdoor chair from home. In order to create a great experience for everyone, we are not allowing tents or umbrellas that might impede other attendees’ view of the screen.

    Bottled water will be available in our outdoor environment.

    People who choose to view the service outdoors are welcome to use our main auditorium building restroom facilities. However, masks will be required upon entry into the building. Masks will be provided for anyone who needs them.

  • Are restrooms available for outdoor viewers?

    People who choose to view the service in our outdoor environment are welcome to use our main auditorium building restroom facilities. However, masks will be required upon entry into the building. Masks will be provided for anyone who needs them.

  • Will you still be serving coffee and water?

    Coffee will not be served, however bottled water will be available. 

  • What changes might I expect during services upon regathering?

    We will no longer pass a physical offering bucket. Rather, attendees are encouraged to use our convenient online giving options available at truenorthchurch.com/give or find our new giving boxes located throughout campus. 

    We will no longer pass out programs or sermon notes. The very best way to access these resources is by downloading the TrueNorth Church app available on all smartphone app stores.

    In an effort to limit physical touch, we will not have a meet + greet time during our services. Additionally, attendees are encouraged to welcome and greet one another before and after services at a safe and respectable distance.
