WE are open for Worship Services Sundays 10:00am!

 

Updated July 13, 2020 2:00 pm

 

 Brothers and Sisters, 

 

Sunday Worship  Yes we are open, it’s real, live, in-person worship again! 10:00 am.    
There are guidelines and policies for in-person worship and you can read them here on our website.  These are to comply with civil authorities but more because we believe in respecting and protecting  health and life – that of ourselves and more importantly, that of others.   If you have ANY questions, just email back.

 

This Sunday: “Take Heed in What You Hear”  St. Matthew 13: 9 ESV  

 

Still Streaming! 
Some of you will be remaining in isolation, and we’ve gained a bit of an internet following during all this, so we will continue to stream the service online at our website and also at our Facebook page.   Both will remain up for the week.   There are a lot of videos up on the Facebook page, so be sure to carefully note the DATE of the video and whether you are accessing the service or just the sermon.   And we really appreciate the “likes” and positive comments about the service and especially the “shares.”  NOTE:   Beginning this week, we will stream the Communion distribution.  It is very unlikely your face will be shown but it is a possibility.   Please be aware, this will now be streamed on the internet.
 

 

 In order to worship together we ask that each person in attendance please adhere to the following recommendations:

  • Wear a mask while singing, when speaking responses, and within 6 feet of non-family members
  • Maintain 6 ft. of separation between families whenever possible
  • No handshakes or hugs
  • Wash/sanitize hands frequently.
  • Stay home if you are sick or if you are in an at-risk group and don’t feel comfortable joining with others for in-person worship. 

 

 Some other things you will see when you arrive that are different from our usual practices are listed below:

  • Bulletins will be provided by ushers wearing masks and gloves.
  • Half of the seats have been removed to provide sufficient space between rows for social distancing.
  • Offering envelopes, info cards, and pens have been removed from the seat backs.  Any of these items needed will be available from a supply table just inside the front doors. 
  • The service will be live streamed and be aware you may be part of that video.  Communion distribution will not be on video.  Personal prayer requests will not be on video.
  • We request that restrooms and the Child Care Center use be limited to 1 person or family at a time.
  • There will be no offering plates passed.  An offering box has been placed on the supply table at the entrance of the church.
  • Communion will be self-served and participants will social distance while progressing up to the front where the elements will be on a communion table.  After taking the elements please proceed to the outside aisles to return to your seat.  Floor signs and arrows are provided to show the flow of traffic.  Please wear masks except when actually taking the elements.
  • Exiting after service will be from the back to the front and facilitated by an usher.
  • After worship, there will not be refreshments outside at this time but you are welcome to fellowship with each other, just please use appropriate social distancing.
If you have ANY questions or concerns, please contact the church.

Pastor’s Bible Study! 

The Pastor’s Bible Study is BACK!  
9:00 in the Community Building
Great New Study on the Lord’s Prayer!  We’ll begin with an insightful and inspirational look at prayer… with lots of Scriptures and discussion (and even a really funny play).  
It’s a GREAT time to start a GREAT habit! 
We’ll be “social distancing” and wearing masks and proving this doesn’t hinder the Holy Spirit or the Bible or us.
Sooooo…. get out of bed (yeah, I know some of you have gotten lazy during all this) … and join us!   And you’ll be here for worship, too!
Come join Pastor Allen on Sunday at 9:00 am.
  

Please send your Prayer Requests to me at KolkmanAllen@gmail.com and I’ll include them there, so we all can join with you.

Our Lord’s servanthood reaches its ultimate limit.On the cross Jesus became the lamb who was slain for sinners. There he was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities (Isaiah 53:4). There he revealed God’s love and became the living way into the “sanctuary” (Hebrews 10:19-20) that is communion with God the Father. Good Friday is not a funeral service for Jesus. It is a celebration of the triumph of the cross! In John’s gospel, always the appointed reading…
