Your safety comes first.
In light of the changing landscape of social gatherings in the midst of the current global pandemic, we're closely monitoring current health news and following local and federal guidelines. Our top priority is to ensure the safety of our guests and our multi-generational church family by creating an on-campus environment that instills confidence while meeting spiritual and emotional needs.
Latest Regathering Update | July 2
Listen to an important update from Robin Wantland, one of Northwest's elders
Due to the recent increase in Dallas County COVID-19 cases, we have decided to postpone our plan to regather for worship services on campus.
Our goal has always been to provide meaningful and safe worship experiences for our church family. It’s clear we cannot do that on campus right now. We have been worshiping together in meaningful ways online and we’ll continue to do so during this time. We will reassess our plan to regather for worship on campus once we've observed a two-week downward trend in cases of COVID-19 in our area. We’ll update you as soon as we have new information. In the meantime, the latest updates will be posted on this page. Read details about the latest update from the email sent to the church body on July 2.
NOTE: Our buildings are currently closed to the public. The summer events that have been approved have completed a detailed ministry plan and all safety measures will be upheld. As we move closer to regathering for in-person worship services, we'll keep this page updated with additional news and safety information.
UPDATE – JUNE 25: We are requiring masks for all indoor on-campus activities to comply with new guidelines from Dallas County. This will include worship services once we resume those on campus. If you attend an indoor activity on campus, you're welcome to bring your own mask, or we will provide one to you at the door. Thank you for helping us comply with government guidelines and for practicing good citizenship!
