While we want to urge you to use the time God has given us during COVID-19 to rest, reflect, and resist the urge to fill up your lives during this time, we also cannot forget that God created us as relational beings. The very first “not good” of creation was God’s statement “it is not good that man should be alone” (Gen. 2:18). With that in mind we want to provide you with a few weekly opportunities to digitally connect with your brothers and sisters in Christ around the Word and in prayer in an effort to "not neglect meeting together" (Hebrews 10:25) during this time of social distancing.
We are using Zoom, a video conferencing tool, for all of our meetings. Zoom is available for free for MAC/PC, iOS, and Android devices. Keep in mind that a camera and microphone are needed to see and be heard. A smartphones and tablets have these built in as do most modern laptops. If you don’t have access to any of these devices you can dial in by phone and participate as if on a conference call.

Afternoon Prayer Meetings
Mondays & Thursdays @ 12pm
Gather online Mondays and Thursdays to pray together for 15-20 minutes during lunch!
We will begin these prayer meetings promptly at 12pm by reading a short passage of Scripture to frame our time together, and then we will invite all participants to pray briefly in response so that as many people as possible have an opportunity to pray. We will conclude by 12:20pm so that those working can return to work.
Online Youth Group
Wednesdays @ 4pm
We are planning to "gather" as many of our youth (6th-12th grade) and youth leaders as we can on Wednesdays from 4pm to 5pm over Zoom. During this fun time plan to connect around scripture and prayer as a large group and breakout groups!
Online Growth Group
Wednesdays @ 7:30pm
Join this meeting for believers of any age to catch up, pray and continue our study of Christians and the Government! Plan on these lasting about one hour.
Home Worship Guide
This is a separate page on our site that does not use ZOOM.
This guide is patterned after a Northwood worship service and is intended for you to do at home with your family, friends, neighbors, church family, or by yourself! It includes lyric videos to sing with, Scripture to read, a sermon to receive and opportunity for prayer. Even though we cannot physically gather this enables us to be shaped together as we sing the same songs, pray for the same requests, read the same Scripture, and listen to the same Scripture preached.
