Although Church activities are limited, First Lutheran is conducting services with limitations, defined by the CDC, as the council seeks to slowly reopen. During this unprecedented time, the safety of all individuals is our main priority. Online services will still be provided here, Wednesday service is at 6:00 pm, and Sunday service at 9:00 am.
The office is open and staffed M-R from 8-noon and 1-4:30pm, Friday from 8-noon, or by appointment. We continue to limit the staff in the office, keeping the safety of each employee our priority. We do check the office phone while there, but please call Pr. Jeanette with any emergency needs on her cell 612-636-1533, or email email@example.com with questions/comments/concerns.
The work and mission of the church continues, though in a new way. We will continue to post some reflections, conversation topics and activities you can do to grow in your faith on Facebook and sent by email. Please call/text/email Pr. Jeanette if you would like to be added to the email list.
If you or someone you know needs assistance getting any supplies or in need of food,
please let us know. Let us know how we can support you.
Romans 8:28 notes, "We know that God works for the good for those who love him." Indeed, it is so disappointing to not be able to gather in our traditional ways. The threat of COVID-19 is frightening for many of us, and the economic implications are difficult. Even still, we trust that God will provide for us and guide us in this time.
For many years, First Lutheran has hosted the Community Thanksgiving Dinner in November and a Lutefisk Dinner in December. The committees have been meeting, and it has been decided that due to the pandemic, we do not wish to put anyone in harms way. Therefore, we won't be able to host the dinners this year.
Though we are as saddened as you are about this decision, we only wish for the best for everyone. We look forward to hosting again next year.
To help facilitate worship in the home, we are including worship services here. We will update as needed.
