As we continue to move forward in this process, here are some important dates we want you to be aware of:
Sunday, August 4 - Merger Begins
We begin the journey of our two churches becoming one church with now 13 locations. Oakbrook people continue attending at their campuses. The primary change at this point will be the alignment via video teaching. Mark, Morgan and Eric will lead us as we participate in Northview’s annual “I Love My Church” series. The intent behind this series is not for Oakbrook people to immediately love Northview. Rather, it’s an opportunity for us to receive an introduction to what lies at the heart and soul of Northview. At this time, there will be two congregations meeting in Kokomo, one at the current Northview Kokomo facility and one at the current Oakbrook Kokomo facility. All Oakbrook locations will hold one service at each of their locations at 10 AM.
Sunday, September 2 — Sunday, October 6 - Combined Services at Northview Kokomo
All Oakbrook locations will begin meeting at the current Northview Kokomo Campus, 2021 E Markland Ave. The length of this time varies by location. The Flora Campus will return to meeting in Flora on Sept. 15. The Peru Campus will return to meeting in Peru on Sept. 22. The Kokomo Campus will move into what will be our permanent location on Oct. 20. This season will also include a focused small group campaign to connect us to one another locally and encourage us to grow spiritually.
Sunday, October 13 - Good Neighbor Weekend
This weekend there will be no Sunday AM services at any location. Rather, every year, Northview practices “Good Neighbor Weekend” where rather than having services, each campus goes into their respective community to do serving projects and make a tangible impact. Each location will participate in community services projects (including Kokomo, Flora and Peru).
Sunday, October 20 - Grand Opening Weekend
This weekend will be a grand opening/relaunch as fully branded Northview locations.
