Be Encouraged
It’s certainly a unique season we find ourselves in. While I hoped it would be a sprint, it now seems to be more of a marathon. Just like all of you, I’m trying to find my new normal. I miss going in the office and seeing coworkers. I miss my drive time while listening to audio books, but I think most of all I miss seeing our congregation at the weekend services. Yet I believe that God is using this time in some incredible ways.

Happy Anniversary Kokomo Campus
This week I want to give a very special shout out to all of you who attend our Kokomo Campus. This is the Kokomo Campus two-year anniversary! Yay God! It’s so hard to believe that it has already been two years! I believe God has big plans for that community so thank you for the work you are doing.

Facebook
Make sure you join your campus Facebook group. You can talk with one another, be part of live worship and be inspired by devotionals.

THANK YOU for giving!
Also, a big thank you to those of you who have continued to be so generous. Because of your generosity, we are able to continue ministry to a lot of people who are in need right now. Will you join with us through giving at www.northviewchurch.us/give?

I am really excited about is the Good Friday service! I think it will really help prepare our hearts for Easter Sunday. Learn more about our Easter service times at www.northviewchurch.us/easter.

The past two weekends online have had an impact that I would have never imagined. When we made the decision to go to service online only, I was bummed. But we have seen some amazing God stories come out of this time!

A woman at our Anderson Campus shared the Weekend Service on Facebook. Her neighbor, for whom she had been praying for a long time, saw the service, and accepted Christ this past weekend! Marty, who attends our Carmel Campus, created a virtual 5k and used the funds raised to donate to our ministry partner, Brookside Church! God is doing something very special and it is powerful!

One way you can make an impact is by donating to the Northview Dollar Club this weekend. When we put all our dollars together, we can make a significant difference! We have a generous donor at Northview who will match every dollar given up to $20,000! Please make sure you jump on www.northviewchurch.us/dollarclub and participate in the Dollar Club this weekend!

Again, several of you went online to set up online giving this week. You have decided to automate the important. Thank you so much! You can set up giving at www.northviewchurch.us/give.

Be encouraged! In the midst of this uncertainty, let’s choose hope over fear and calm over chaos.

Love you guys! See you online this weekend!

Hey, guys,

It’s certainly been another crazy week! Just two months ago we had never even heard of the coronavirus, social distancing or self-quarantine. But we know this didn’t take Jesus by surprise, and He has not lost sight of you!

We want to make sure community at Northview continues, so we have developed several opportunities for you to connect online.

Facebook
Make sure you join your campus Facebook group. You can talk with one another, be part of live worship and be inspired by devotionals.

My Next Move
Along with ways to serve your community, you will find resources for kids, students and groups at www.northviewchurch.us/next!

Food Distribution
We are beginning food drop off at our campuses this Monday. If you prefer, you’ll be able to order food online and have it delivered to a campus. You’ll also find recommendations for DIY projects you can do for others in the local community.

Online Giving
Last week I asked you if you’d set up online giving. Several of you did that, and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it. Would you continue to join with us as ministry moves online? You can give one time or set up recurring giving at www.northviewchurch.us/give.

See you this weekend online!
Social distancing does not mean spiritual distancing. If there was ever a time we needed to hear the truth of God’s word, it is now! Make plans to watch the service online at www.northviewchurch.us/watchonline, and invite a friend to join you!

Hello, Northview Family,

Wow – what an amazing weekend coming together as a church. We were so thankful to be able to celebrate together. As information about the coronavirus continues to surface, we are monitoring news from the CDC, World Health Organization and Indiana State Health Department. Following the recommendations of the president that no groups larger than ten should gather, we are asking that all Northview groups suspend meeting at this time.

We have asked our staff to work from home and we will continue to answer phones and emails during normal business hours. If you need anything during this time, please reach out.

We look forward to worshiping with you online again this weekend. Join us during one of our services with live chat – 5 p.m. on Saturday or 9 and 11 a.m. on Sunday.

- Steve Poe

A message from Lead Pastor Steve Poe:

As you are aware there are a lot of things happening in our world concerning the Coronavirus. I knew you would want to know how we at Northview Church are going to respond to these concerns. After continually monitoring advice from the CDC, World Health Organization and the Indiana State Health Department, we have decided to host our Weekend Services online only for the next four weeks.

Services:
We will have Campus Pastors and Northview staff available to chat online at our 5 p.m. Saturday night services as well as our 9 and 11 a.m. services on Sunday morning. We will also broadcast our service every two hours starting at 1 p.m on Sunday.

Watch Online

Giving:
Even though we will not be meeting together for weekend worship service, ministry is still happening. Not meeting for services will create a financial hardship for our church. Will you help us by giving online? Thank you for being so generous.

Give Now

Students and Kids:
Our Northview Students Life Groups will continue to meet as normal. But, since we won’t have Northview Kids or Northview Students large group on the weekend, we have resources available for you to have spiritual conversations with your kids and your students. Recourse can be found here.

Encouragement:
We believe that God is in control of every situation and He does not give us a spirit of fear, but one of power and love and of sound mind. We know that the Coronavirus doesn’t just impact Northview Church, it impacts our city, our nation and our world. We know that some of you may be feeling the impact from all of this, from being out of work to not being able to follow through on certain commitments. I want you to know the church is here for you. Please reach out to us – we want to help.
