Update

Northshore Community Church

Governor Inslee has directed a ‘stay in place’ order for the entire state of Washington. As we look to local and state officials for COVID-19 recommendations, we are making plans for the next several weeks of livestreaming our Sunday services, as well as determining what our Easter services will look like. We will have more information soon. In the meantime, read Pastor Scotty’s letter below to see how you can make a difference in the lives of others around you.

Due to the new recommended precautions for COVID-19, until further notice, our building will be closed until further notice. You can still reach out to us through email or through the webchat and we’ll respond as soon as we can.

We have received confirmation from WA state officials that churches are allowed to have a small number of people on site to hold livestream worship provided we follow social distancing and health and hygiene protocols. We are doing every we can in order to make our livestream helpful, reliable and safe for our staff and volunteer, so there are times in which we have to record our services ahead of time. 


Northshore Family,

I’d like to take a few minutes of your time to update you on what’s happening at Northshore as we navigate the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in this part of the world which we call home.

First of all, I want to say how proud I am of this church family. The care packages that were assembled for residents of the Life Care Center, the resources that have been given and the prayers that have been prayed have been such an example of love in the midst of uncertainty. People of all ages are coming together for our neighbors, the next generation and those in need.

We’ve received phone calls from people who don’t go here to say thank you and strangers stop by to donate money. One local artist even auctioned off a painting and gave the proceeds to Northshore. All of this happened because people are seeing a church that’s living out of faith, rather than out of fear. So thank you Northshore for your courage and generosity.

Last fall, when we launched Northshore Online, we dreamed about how this could help more people hear the good news of Jesus and take a next step in their faith.  What we didn’t know then, was that God was actually preparing us for this moment when we would be called on to adapt how we do church together to meet the needs of our community and reach the hearts of our neighbors. So here’s what’s coming next.

Online-Only Sunday Services
For the foreseeable future, our Sunday services will be held online only. Service times will remain the same at 8, 9:30 and 11am. Our hope is to be able to gather together on our church campus in Kirkland as soon as possible, but in the meantime, we believe we can continue to learn and grow together as a church by worshipping in our homes. If you’ll be watching the livestream on Facebook, we encourage you to share it on your feed. If you’ll be watching on our website, consider inviting someone to join you by sending them the link.

For Families with Kids
Please know that your families will continue to be in our prayers as we navigate these circumstances together. Our hope is to keep your kids engaged and provide ways for them to grow spiritually. We’ve curated online curriculum for your kids through Right Now Media, which we highly encourage you to utilize. It’s super easy to register and is a great way for kids to do church online along with the rest of your family! We provide anyone who calls Northshore home free access to this service. After you register, head on over to the Northshore Community Church channel on the left side and you’ll be able to see all of the curriculum that has been uploaded to the NKids section. There are several videos for kids with optional discussion questions and activities that can be downloaded.

Mid-Week Programs
Since our midweek programs traditionally follow the Northshore School District scheduling, we are suspending all on-campus ministries for the next 4 weeks.  We will evaluate this decision week to week as the situation around the outbreak continues to unfold.  In the meantime, we will be providing alternative ways for you to grow closer to God and learn more about Him.

Opportunities to Serve & Give
While the impacts of the coronavirus mean some changes to our daily lives, the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of people have not been put on hold and we must continue to care for those around us. The residents and staff at Life Care Center of Kirkland have been going through a difficult time and we want to come alongside them to provide encouragement, hope and practical help. One way we can help is by providing meals for the employees there.

We’ve coordinated with the leadership at Life Care to arrange two meals a day for their staff through April 15.  We’re asking people to sign up to deliver store-bought or restaurant-made meals to feed either 10 or 15 staff members. You will not need to enter the facility or come in contact with any staff or residents.

Sign up here.

Consider gathering a group of friends or neighbors to share the cost. If you cannot provide a meal, consider donating to this effort by going to our giving page and choosing “Together for” from the dropdown menu. All donations will be used to support this initiative as well as others being impacted by this outbreak. We’ll be sending out an email soon with more information on how you can sign up, so be on the lookout for that.

Even though we’re not gathering in-person for church, you still have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others by giving your tithes and offerings through our giving page.

Final Thoughts
Even though our world has changed, the power of God has not changed. The truth of Scripture has not changed. The hope of Jesus has not changed. Our mission as a church has not changed. Let us not give in to fear. Rather, let’s fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.

In Christ,
Scott Scruggs
