 Northwood Updates amidst these changing times:

The Church Office is now back open. We have employed measure in compliance with Fraser Health to ensure safety of all people at the church. Office hours are Tuesday-Friday from 9-noon. 

Worship is exclusively offered in video and printed format. It is uploaded to both our website www.northwood-united.com (sermons tab at top) as well as our YouTube Channel https://youtu.be/dZC-20Rc44A on Sunday morning at 10:30 am. Many have been ‘tuning in’ on YouTube at 10:30 am and collectively worshipped together from the safety of their homes where you can comment, discuss and interact from your computer.

Sunday Coffee is now being enjoyed in a virtual format following worship (approximately 11:15). Join us on zoom and say 'hi' and connect after worship. You can either phone in to a local number or join via Zoom (a free and simple to use video conferencing app). It is the 2nd best thing to having coffee with one another! Check Friday’s email for the complete information on logging in / calling in or just call Rev. Scott at 604.9992.1033.          

Your Pastoral Care committee has worked hard in designing a ‘Telephone Tree’ where we can check in with one another and provide updates on our ministry. Each person, who wishes one, is now receiving a regular telephone call throughout the congregation via the tree.

Spirit Talk’ is a mid-week video broadcast providing an opportunity to learn more about the faith of various members in the church. Rev. Scott asks people about their life, their faith, and how they express their ministry. You will find it on Facebook and on the website ~ listed under the “Sermons” tab (top right corner of the website).
