Northside Church Online

This Sunday Northside will gather online. Use the links below to watch the service “live” at 10:00am. Watch on your phone, desktop computer, or “cast” to your TV.

Welcome to Sunday Church, online! Here are some guidelines for you:

1. Be fully present
You’ll face a lot of digital distractions once the service kicks off. Choose to stay committed & engaged. (Don’t worry! Those notifcations will still be there when we are finished.)

2. Like, Share, & Comment
One of the great benefits of online services is we can have MORE interaction. So ask questions, comment, and engage with one another. Share the service on your social feeds, and invite you friends to watch with you.

3. Worship, don’t just watch
You can’t feed your body by watching other people eat, and you can’t feed your soul by watching others worship. So make this a spiritual time – sing, pray, and read the word along with us. Most importantly, listen for God’s voice and respond in faith to what He says.

This Sunday’s Message:

Questions from the Sermon for this week:

2. What kind of person were you when you became a Christian? How have you changed since that time? How does this relate to the sermon?

Statements from Northside’s Office

Letter To The Church – Pastor Barry



Yesterday, as Pastor Joel was leading us in our weekly Staff meeting, by Zoom, I was realizing that the Church is not limited by space or time. This is “BREAKING NEWS!”  God is everywhere! I was so encouraged to hear how each of our staff are reaching out in new ways to our church family. Thank you to Andrew who is helping all of us, especially me, with all of our technical needs! Our Youth and Young Adults are meeting by Zoom, with Pastor Greg, and in Chat Rooms, Megan is reaching the parents of our kids with new ways to teach and entertain our children while at home, Pastor Elizabeth and her Care Team are in contact with any who have special needs. All of us are finally getting to those special projects that we hadn’t had time for. (click here to read the full post)

 

COVID-19 UPDATE #2

Like everyone, your Northside leadership has been deeply engaged in monitoring and preparing for the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Coronavirus. Last night, your leaders reviewed and affirmed a whole range of plans, outlining potential precautions and closures that Northside may undertake as this pandemic continues. The situation requires us to be flexible and responsive, and so we wanted to bring you up to date on Northside’s current status, and on the ways you can help. (click here to read full post)

How should we respond?

We know that God is in control. We know that He wants us to put our faith in Him, to not be fearful, and to take comfort in His Word and in the peace that only He can provide. Despite the great amount of uncertainty and every-changing information concerning this outbreak, we remain certain of God’s love for us and His presence in this situation. God is our refuge and our strength, our ever-present help in times of trouble. We need to pray for those who are mourning the loss of loved ones, those who are sick, the caregivers in our community, our religious and political leaders, and anyone who is working tirelessly to try and stop this virus from spreading further or doing more harm. We need to do what we can to flatten the curve, love our neighbor, and prevent the spread of this virus in our community.

Pastor Barry’s 50-Day daily devotions through the Psalms

I (Pastor Barry) have a “50 Day Plan” to keep us together with devotions. Every day, from Wednesday March 18, until Wednesday May 6, I’d like us each to read three Psalms. There are 150 Psalms, so we can be reading together these meaningful songs that were all composed in either, challenging circumstances, or in times of Celebration. On each of the 50 days, I will go LIVE on our Facebook page to share a short devotion from one of the psalms, and then give a prayer point from the psalm, that relates to our current situation. That will help keep all of us together in our devotional lives.

ABOUT COVID-19
The current risk for Canadians is considered Low, but this could change rapidly.

There is an increased risk for people aged 65 and over; people with compromised immune systems; and people with underlying medical conditions.

The symptoms of the 2019 novel coronavirus, which can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing, are similar to other respiratory infections, including influenza.

Most people with common human coronavirus illnesses will recover on their own.

STAY SAFE
There are everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses. Take these everyday steps to reduce exposure to the virus and protect your health:

  • wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • sneeze and cough into your sleeve
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • avoid contact with people who are sick
  • stay home if you are sick
