Northwoods Online

Finding hope in the midst of the coronavirus scare.

We can trust in the stable and vital power of Jesus Christ to sustain us through times of worry and challenge.

During this time, it is important to stay connected with the church and with each other.

We’ve been closely tracking the news of the coronavirus (COVID-19) both locally and globally. At the guidance and direction of goverment officials, weekend services will not be held on any campus until further notice. Instead, Northwoods will meet online only on Sundays at 9 & 11am. Additionally, all weekday and weekend classes, groups, and gatherings are cancelled until further notice.

Give Your Vital $20

We are committed to continue to minister through this difficult time we're facing, here locally and around the world. We are very aware that some of us are facing financial uncertainty in these days. We are in the trenches with you!

That's why we've started the Vital $20 effort. We've partnered with local vendors to make free coffee and ice cream available to healthcare workers who are working on the frontlines. Healthcare workers can show their IDs and get freebies at

  • The Spotted Cow in Peoria
  • Orange Java in Galesburg
  • The Coffee Hub in Lacon
  • Black Maple Coffee in Canton.

We are also partnering with the Dream Center to collect and distribute non-perishable food items and toiletries to those in need. This donations list displays the items we need. Drop off hours are Tuesday–Friday from 11am–3pm at the Peoria Campus.

Additionally, the Galesburg Campus and Re:New Thrift Store have partnered with Box Car Express to provide lunches to families in need. Pick up is available Monday–Saturday from 11:30am–1pm.

Your $20 Vital 20 gift directly supports these projects.

Discoveryland Online


We're so excited to introduce Discoveryland ONLINE!⁠
Discoveryland will be going live on the weekend with services designed just for our families!⁠ ⁠

We will offer a service every Sunday at 3:00 pm for our "Little Kids" (2-6 yr olds) and at 4:00 pm for our "Big Kids" (2nd-6th graders). It will be just like being in Discoveryland! ⁠

Parents, we suggest you have your kids watch on the Northwoods Roku Channel, if you have a Roku, while you tune in to to take advantage of the chat features to talk to Discoveryland staff and other parents as well as request prayer.⁠

We look forward to meeting up with you on Sunday afternoon!
