Worship resources are moving to their own page. Please be patient while it is under construction,
We held our last in-house worship in March! For many weeks we have fasted from gathering in person not simply because of Gov. Wolf’s directives, but because we are called to act in love, bearing one another’s burdens, and having compassion for one another’s needs. What we know about the SARS-CoV-2 virus has grown since March, and how we respond may change as more is known.
We're preparing to gather in-house again!
We realize that there are differences of opinion and strong feelings moving forward, even among faithful followers of Christ. We are also aware that we have different comfort levels in being in contact with others during this pandemic. In the midst of these realities, we want to encourage all to be patient and kind to one another (1 Corinthians 13:4). Our Lord calls us to love one another for that is how we will show the world the truth of God’s love (John 13:35).
As Christians, we are called and strengthened to have a faith-full and practical response in the midst of crises. While we’ve never faced a crisis like this, we have come through many crises before, caring for one another, our community and for the world. We are people of hope.
Your faithful giving allows us to continue to care for our congregation and our community. You can still give securely online through our website from the secure giving page. Your giving enables us to continue serving, and supporting one another in these days. We Lutherans can be shy about money – this isn’t a time for timidity but bold service and generous hearts.
Here's what we're doing to enhance safety, and ensure we're not contributing to the spread of SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, and how you can make a difference
What we've done:
Tables, chairs, handrails, and other high-touch surfaces have been wiped down with hospital grade disinfectants.
Tables are set up to encourage social distancing.
Worship resources for use at home will continue to be made available.
How you can help:
Wear a mask! Yes, there are strong feelings. We understand. For the safety of each member we are following the guidelines of multiple medical experts and institutions and require a mask to enter the building and participate in worship. We'll have a few for those who forget theirs so not having a mask at hand will not be an issue - we have one for you!
Please bring a filled reusable canteen or bottled water with you. We will have some prefilled glasses of water set out, but hope you will bring your own.
We realize that attending is a personal decision and we will respect each other’s need to practice self-care. Feel free to shelter in place if you are not comfortable yet with in-person gatherings for whatever reason. We especially affirm your decision if you fall into an “at risk” category.
We ask that you stay home if you have the following symptoms: cough, fever, loss of sense of smell or taste, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle aches, flu-like symptoms, or simply feel unwell.
We ask that you self-quarantine from in-house worship for fourteen days if you’ve recently traveled to a high risk area as defined by CDC, or if you have been exposed to COVID-19.
o To practice universal good hygiene while you are here: use hand sanitizer frequently, wash your hands for 20-seconds, cough or sneeze into your elbow, avoid touching your face (eyes, nose and mouth).
