June 2020 Update

Beginning June 7

Christ Lutheran will be offering two worship opportunities on Sunday mornings:

  • 9:00am In-person Outdoor Worship
  • 10:30am Virtual Worship via Facebook Live

Here’s what to expect:

10:30am Virtual Worship Service

This service will be broadcast on my personal Facebook page and shared later on the church Facebook page. This service will also be available on our website. Basically, it will be the same format that we have been doing the last couple of months.

  • Margaret Dietz & Darla Steinert will be leading the music, so we will be drawing from the songs in the hymnal.
  • We will post the lyrics on slides so that you can sing along at home.
  • If you would like to stop by church and borrow a hymnal so that you can read the music at home, please do! If you let us know ahead of time, we can leave one in the outside dropbox for you.
9:00am Outdoor In-Person Worship Service

We will worship God together in the field directly behind church, setting up the altar in the area underneath the big window. We will be doing Communion! Yay! We have worked out some procedures so that we can ensure this is done as safely as possible.

  • The people helping with distribution will be masked and will bring the elements to you. We will offer further instructions at the time.
  • If you want to attend, but do not want to risk receiving Communion, that is ok too. We will just skip you in the distribution.
  • You will need to bring your own lawn chairs or blanket to sit on. If you wish to remain in your car, there will be parking for cars in the back.
  • Otherwise, you can park in the parking lot and walk over to find your spot in the field.
  • You will be required to practice social distancing for the entire service – no touching or physical sharing of the peace, etc. We will be strict about this for the care and concern of those most vulnerable.
  • Masks will be encouraged but not required.
  • The bathrooms will be open, but you are encouraged to use them only if necessary. No other parts of the building will be open.
  • We will have bulletins & printed song lyrics to follow. The music will be led by members of the praise band.
  • If the weather is questionable, the Outdoor Worship Service will be cancelled and become a Virtual Worship Service beginning at 9:00am instead. We will post a cancellation notice no later than 8:00am on Pastor Chad’s & the church’s Facebook page that morning.

If you are feeling sick or having any symptoms, please stay home and worship virtually. One way or another, I hope to see you in worship soon!
In Christ,
Pastor Chad
