You may have seen that the Mississippi Department of Health recommends that, for the time being, people not attend church in person because of a recent spike in cases of Covid-19. We want you to know where we, the Staff & Governance Board of NorthPark Church, stand on that recommendation. Though we have great respect for our state officials and genuine concern for stopping the spread of this pandemic, we will continue to meet for our regular weekly services at this time. We believe corporate worship and Christian fellowship are essential, and therefore we must continue to meet.
We do want to encourage you to take extra precautions. FIRST of all, we ask you to use your best judgment about whether or not you should come to in-person services at this moment. Some of you may have good reasons to stay home right now. If that is you, we encourage you to do so and hope you will watch the live stream at SECOND, if you do come, we ask that you follow the recommended safety protocols which are:

1. Sit with your family
2. Socially distance yourself from others
3. Use of the hand sanitizing stations setup throughout the building
3. Wear your mask the entire time you are in the building
We have had a few cases of Covid among our church family over the last few months, but we are fortunate that, as far as we know, we have so far not had an outbreak in our congregation. That's at least in part because you have made wise decisions regarding your participation and compliance. Thank you for partnering with us to help keep church safe and clean during our weekly gatherings. Our leadership team is continuously monitoring circumstances surrounding this pandemic and prayerfully considering best practices for our church body as we move forward. We will actively communicate any changes we determine are necessary in order to ensure the health and safety of our congregation while remaining committed to the mission of our church.
