In-Person Gatherings

We are now offering two in-person gatherings, at 9:30 and 11 am on Sundays. We are excited to welcome you to our Kirkland campus and will make it a priority to ensure that you and your family feel comfortable and safe should you choose to attend in person. We realize that not everyone is ready to attend in person. And that’s okay — you can continue joining us online for the same great experience. Northshore Online is still live at 8, 9:30, and 11 am.

To learn more about the safety measures we are taking, keep scrolling on this page. Additionally, our NKids Ministry will be available for infants-5th graders on a first-come, first-served basis. Whether you join us in person or continue to attend online, you can expect to see worship, pastoral teaching, and hosts to welcome you. However you choose to engage with us, we are still one Northshore family and still a church that is together for our neighbors, the next generation, and those in need.

What to Expect

We are committed to gathering safely on our Kirkland campus while we monitor current guidelines and best practices. That’s why our weekend gatherings have been redesigned to create a touch-free environment including physical distancing, enhanced sanitation efforts, and reduced capacity in our worship center. Read more about what to expect on Sundays in the sections below.

Physical Distancing & Masks

In keeping with state guidelines for church gatherings, our in-person gatherings will have reduced capacity and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to minimize the spread of COVID-19. To reduce close contact with other attendees, we will provide clear signage, dedicated entrances and exits, and appropriately-spaced seating. Masks are required on our campus for our staff, volunteers, and non-fully vaccinated individuals ages 3 and up at all times. If you forget to bring a mask, we will provide a disposable one for you before you enter the building. In accordance with the CDC, fully vaccinated individuals, who have completed the two-week waiting period after their final vaccination, are no longer required to wear a mask.

Sanitization

Cleaning of our campus will continue to take place at or above all guidelines set forth by the CDC, including but not limited to all surfaces in the auditorium, lobby, restrooms, and any other high-touch surfaces. Additionally, hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the campus for your use. We’ve also upgraded our HVAC systems to filter air throughout the building at all times.

Touch-Free Environment

Our team has worked hard to ensure that weekend gatherings are as touch-free as possible. If you choose to worship with us in person, you won’t have to open any doors or pass offering or communion containers. Additionally, we are suspending our coffee service for the time being.

Staying Healthy

To keep you, our staff, team members, and guests safe, we are following Washington COVID-19 State Health Department guidelines. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and join us online. Additionally, while on campus, we ask that you wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often, as well as maintain a distance of six feet between yourself and guests whom you do not live with.

NKids Ministry

We’re offering NKids ministry for infants-5th graders at 9:30 and 11 am. Once you arrive at Northshore, look for our NKids tent in the parking lot to check in your kids and drop them off. Upon drop-off, kids will receive a temperature check, then both parents and kids will receive their stickers used for a safe and secure check-out experience.

As always, your kids can expect a fun, welcoming, and safe experience designed just for them to hear God’s story in a way they can understand. For more information on registration, COVID-19 precautions, and online opportunities, keep scrolling below.

Physical Distancing & Masks

Kids attending NKids services will be appropriately spaced out in the Glacier Room. Before entering their classroom, all kids age three and up and volunteers must use hand sanitizer, wear masks and have their temperature checked. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4° F or higher will be asked to leave the building and worship with us online.

Sickness Policy

We need your help and cooperation in protecting other kids and families and our team members. If your kid or family member has had a fever in the last 72 hours, is showing COVID-19 or other sickness symptoms, or has recently been around someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, stay home.

NKids Online

Our team wants to come alongside parents to encourage, equip, and support parents with resources. We will continue to offer weekly NKids online curriculum for your kids to enjoy. There is also a Zoom class for elementary kids at 9:30 am on Sundays. To access these resources, please visit: northshore.church/kids/.
