  • Operating plan

    effective Sunday, January 3, 2021

    IN-PERSON SERVICES, CLASSES, AND MEETINGS WILL RESUME ON WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 6.  FACE COVERINGS WILL BE REQUIRED PER THE CURRENLY IN-EFFECT ORDINANCES ISSUED BY THE CITY OF KANSAS CITY, MO.


    Since March of 2020 when restrictions were imposed in an attempt to halt the spread of COVID-19, the leaders at Northland have taken all the steps required to stay in compliance with the ordinances issued by the government of Kansas City while continuing to conduct worship services and Sunday School classes in whatever format was available.  When restrictions were relaxed we  reorganized and relocated our worship services and Sunday School classes as best we could given the limitations of the facility in order to protect the health of the congregation.  We are happy to report that, due to God's protection and the measures that have been implemented, no one has contracted the virus as a result of being in attendance at a service, class, or meeting at Northland.  


    Two members of the Northland family did contract the virus, but neither contracted it at the church.  The one who attended services on Sunday, December 13, was at the board meeting on December 14, and was at Wednesday evening Bible study on December 16 and who tested positive for COVID-19 was, as of December 27, in quarantine for 10 days.   There have been no reports of anyone contracting the virus who was in contact with him on those occasions when he was at the church.  In order to be absolutely sure that no one who comes in contact with him will contract the virus, he has told us that he will not be attending services, classes, or meetings at church for another week.


    The leaders at Northland are, therefore, very happy to announce that in-person Sunday morning worship services, Sunday School classes, and Wednesday evening prayer and Bible study meetings will resume on Wednesday evening, January 6.


    NOTE:  FACE COVERINGS WILL BE REQUIRED AT ALL IN-PERSON SERVICES, CLASSES, AND MEETINGS.


    We will continue to live-stream the Sunday morning worship services and, on most Sunday mornings, 1 adult Sunday School class.  Those live-streams can be accessed directly by clicking the link below the picture on the landing page of the Northland website.   On those Sunday morning's when the Sunday School class is not live-streamed, we will leave the morning worship live-stream up for a while to allow those logged in to un-mute their devices and enjoy a time of "virtual fellowship".



     


  • wednesday evening bible study

    IN-PERSON WEDNESDAY EVENING PRAYER AND BIBLE STUDY MEETINGS WILL  RESUME ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6, 2021.  FACE COVERINGS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR THOSE WHO ARE ATTENDING IN-PERSON.  WE WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO LIVE-STREAM THE BIBLE STUDY MEEINGS.   USE THE SAME INSTRUCTIONS TO SIGN IN TO THIS STUDY AS YOU WOULD USE TO SIGN IN TO SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP.    HOWEVER, YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE MICROPHONE ON YOUR DEVICE UNMUTED  IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DISCUSSION.  




  • SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS LIVE-STREAM

    In-person Sunday School classes will resume on Sunday, January 10, 2021.  One adult Sunday School class that normally meets in the Upper Room will continue to be live-streamed most weeks.  On those Sundays when the class is not live-streamed, we will leave the live-stream from the morning worship service open so that those logged in can un-mute and enjoy a time of "virtual fellowship".  On those Sundays when the Sunday School class is being live-streamed, log-on will be the same as for logging on to the Sunday morning worship service.  You will need to log-on to it after the morning worship service has concluded, and YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THE MICROPHONE ON YOUR DEVICE UNMUTED IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DISCUSSION. 



attendance and active membership notice

The Elders have determined that attendance records from September 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021 shall be used to determine active member status prior to the next annual congregational meeting. Attendance will be recorded for both Sunday Worship and Wednesday Bible Study. Both physical and “virtual” attendance will be recorded and counted. Under the Constitution and By-Laws of Northland Christian Church only an “active member” is eligible to vote in congregational and special meetings. At this time physical presence at the meeting at which voting will occur will still be required in order to vote. No absentee or remote voting will be allowed. These requirements may need to be adjusted in the future due to circumstances prevailing at the time.
