Outdoor Worship Services
On July 5 and 12, we are planning to meet for outdoor worship services at 9am. This decision is something the worship and music team has worked on for a few weeks now. We feel that with precautions, we can make this "phase 1" of re-entry into in-person worship happen safely.
We will evaluate the services to see if this is something we wish to continue throughout the summer months. A task force has been formed composed of Jeanne Mueller, Sharon Oberheu, Julie Ische and Pastor Brent. We will work on a strategy for complete in-person worship in the church building.
The precautions that we will be taking for the outdoor services will include:
- If you are interested in attending, please call (262-377-0610) or email the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 10am of the Friday before the outdoor service to reserve a place in worship. This will allow us to see how many of you will be attending. Please leave a phone number or email by which we can contact you on Friday if we need to cancel the service.
- Please stay home if you are not feeling well.
- If inclement weather is predicted, we will contact you on Friday to let you know that the service is canceled.
- Half of the lower parking lot will be used for parking your car. However, we encourage you to use the upper parking lot or street if you can.
- Masks will be worn -- if you don’t have one, one will be provided.
- Chairs will be placed on the lower parking lot at least 10 feet apart. If you wish for more chairs to sit as a family, the chair rack will be placed outside the lower education wing.
- There will be two sanitizing stations set up for you when you arrive, if you wish to sanitize your hands before the service.
- The service will include communion. Pastor Brent will be the only person distributing the elements. There will be one table up front. You will be asked to walk up front individually or as a family unit maintaining physical distancing from others.
- Two verses of the hymns will be sung while wearing your masks.
- The service will last no more than 30 minutes.
- One usher will distribute the bulletins while you are at your seats.
- The door to the building will be propped open and the restrooms will be available for one person to use at a time (1 male and 1 female).
- At the conclusion of the service, please observe physical distancing and other precautions as you leave.
- The chairs will be sanitized and put away for you.
We hope that this will work well for us as a means to come together for worship -- even in this limited way. Also, keep in mind that we will continue offering online worship services as well. See you Sunday morning!
It's School Kit Time Again!
Send hope for a better world, around the world. Lutheran World Relief sends school kits to children whose lives are being shattered by war and poverty -- kids who may get to go to school but can't afford the supplies that help them be successful in school. You can provide hope!
School kits are especially needed this year, as many churches and organizations are not meeting to make them. Last year we bought notebooks, enough to fill 113 backpacks. Again, this year we bought in bulk with prices being cheaper (mostly). Here’s what was purchased:
- 120 boxes of Crayola (24 crayons)
- 72 erasers
- 480 pencils
- 492 pens
- 100 rulers
- 96 scissors
- 72 sharpeners
Your donation of MONEY is greatly appreciated. One filled backpack (minus the backpack and notebooks) costs $ 3.41. Please mark "school supplies" on your check or donation (envelope). We'll be collecting funds until Sept. 1. Hopefully, we’ll be able to gather to assemble the school bags in September.
Loose Change Offerings
Loose change offerings from July through September will go to supplies for school kits for Lutheran World Relief.
We Want To Hear From You About Sermon Videos
As of July 2020, we're thinking about discontinuing posting Pastor Brent's sermon videos on YouTube and on this website because we are now posting entire worship services, which include the sermon. If you would like to continue to see the videos of just his sermons, please email us at
email@example.com . Thank you!
