GUIDELINES

Please stay safe and healthy during this time. If we can help you or someone you know in anyway, please let us know. You are in our prayers. We will see you soon!

HEALTH & SAFETY

  • The current guidelines require that religious services be limited to no more than 50% of the lowest occupancy of the room. For this reason, please use our online reservation system to reserve your seat. 

  • Children's programming is available for Kindergarten through sixth grade.Reservations are required each week and may be made by emailing Gary or Chrissy at youthministry@bvu.net. Lesson's for our NorthStar Children will continue to be released on the NorthStar Facebook Page and NorthStar Children's Ministry Page each Sunday and Wednesday.

  • Sunday Night Youth has resumed in person meetings each week from 5 to 7pm. 

  • Please take a moment to self-screen before coming to church each Sunday:

    • Are you or any family member showing flu-like symptoms?​

    • Have you or a family member had a fever of 100.4 or higher in the past 14 days?

    • Have you or a family member been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19?

    • Are you or a family member at high risk to contract COVID-19?

If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," we encourage you to enjoy

worship online this weekend.

  • ENTERING & EXITING. Please remain six feet apart while waiting to enter the building. Please also note that the second and third floors of the building will be closed. The sanctuary doors are the only points of entry and exit.

  • FAMILY SERVICE. During this time, some of our Children's programming is temporarily suspended. This means we will have all ages joining us during service! Please be patient with families with young children and help them feel comfortable by welcoming them!

  • TEMPERATURE SCREENINGS. Every attendee will have their temperature taken prior to entry. If you or anyone in your family has a temperature of 100.4 or higher, we ask you that you return home to worship online with us. 

  • FACE COVERINGS. On May 29, 2020, the Governor of Virginia instituted Executive Order 63 which requires everyone aged 10 or older wear face coverings in public buildings. As a result, we are asking each attendee 10 years of age and older to comply and wear face coverings as you attend a church service. We will have face masks available for those who do not have their own. If this causes health concerns for you, the Governor has stated that you are NOT REQUIRED to wear a mask. Thank you for your continued faithfulness as a member of the NorthStar family.

  • RESTROOMS. Restrooms outside of the sanctuary doors will be available for use and thoroughly sanitized after each service. The restrooms in our Children's Area will also be available during Children's Church. 

  • Our number one priority is the health and safety of our church family and community. We have formed a COVID-19 Outreach Team to deliver groceries, medicine, supplies, etc. to the elderly and immune-oppressed who should not leave their homes during this time. If you would like to volunteer or are in need of assistance, please email Gary at youthministry@bvu.net.*

    • *According to the CDC, individuals over the age of 65 are most at risk. Therefore, we are asking only those under the age of 60 and in good health to volunteer. Thank you!​

  • Pastor Bill has resumed our Wednesday Night Bible Study in an online format at 5:30 pm. These can be viewed on the NorthStar Facebook Page and the church website

  • A number of our Bible Studies have been moved to Zoom: 

    • Men's Bible Study: Mondays at 7:00 PM

    • Youth Girls Bible Study: Thursdays at 7:30 PM

    • Family Bible Study: Wednesdays at 6:30 PM

  • The church office will be open during our regular business hours. Our staff will be rotating each day in order to comply with social distancing requirements. ​​
