Congregation public worship re-entry update #1
Grace Lutheran Church in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin,
With the decision of the Wisconsin State Supreme Court; our previous guidelines under "Safer at Home" have changed. This weekend (5/14&17/2020), we are going to maintain what we have been doing the past months with online "Thoughts for Thursday" and recorded Sunday worship.
We are waiting to see what guidelines come out for our community of Elkhart Lake to see how we proceed from here.
We will meet as Church Council to discuss and plan what our process will be as a congregation, bearing in mind our desire to worship together and commune as the family of God in Christ Jesus while exercising Christian love and understanding for all as we plan the schedule, design, modifications, practices, and surroundings of our congregational worship, life, and ministry for the future.
Please keep our congregation, its leaders, all members, our world and its leaders, in your prayers.
Shalom in Jesus, our Risen Messiah!
Congregation public worship re-entry update #2
We are planning to get the Church Council together early next week (week of 5/17/2020) to get some concrete plans of the "whens" and "hows" for resuming worship services (in a revised fashion).
We will inform everyone as soon as possible once that date has been determined.
We look forward to seeing you again.
Continue to keep all of us in your prayers as we meet and plan.
Shalom in Jesus,
