LOVING GOD, LOVING PEOPLE,
LOVING ALL FOR CHRIST
St. Paul Lutheran Church currently holds in-person worship at two separate services; 8:30a.m. and 11:30a.m.
We livestream most services and they are usually available in the videos page on the website shortly following the service. If you are at high risk for contracting illnesses or are elderly please consider attending the 8:30a.m. service as it has the lowest risk of possible contamination.
First and foremost, please be aware of the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and if you are feeling ill and exhibiting any of the symptoms (persistent dry cough, low grade persistent fever, difficulty breathing) please stay home and watch the livestream service.
Hand sanitizer and masks are available at the entrance to the sanctuary. The use of masks is to protect others from those with asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 that can pass the virus through water droplets in your breath especially during singing! We cannot stress enough that this is to protect others, especially those with weakened immune systems and high risk factors, from asymptomatic individuals.
When stricter precautions are being followed we ask that you sit with family units, specifically those family units that live with each other in the same household or are in regular, daily contact. Every other pew will be marked off so that six feet of separation is maintained between family units at all times.
Pastor will greet the congregation before and after the service but will not greet members individually and will refrain from shaking hands/hugging. We ask that members do not greet each other by shaking hands/hugging within the nave/sanctuary.
At this time fellowship time, coffee and refreshments, and food service continue to be suspended.
We are very aware that this is the most difficult time any of us have ever faced in our lives. We are also aware of the anxiety that these necessary restrictions put on people. If you have any question about the directives or are in need of assistance or counseling do not hesitate to contact pastor at the church office M-Th 9am-3pm during our regular hours or through our Facebook page or email. Your church family is here for you and while these changes are difficult, they are TEMPORARY! We hope to be able to lift many of these restrictions soon God willing as the virus subsides. Until then we rejoice that we are able to be with one another in the Lord’s House after two months of livestream only worship in 2020! We have learned a lot in this period of time and are excited to move the mission of St. Paul Lutheran Church forward and stronger than ever before. God bless you and we can’t wait to see you!!
