"Therefore we will not fear though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. The mighty LORD is with us. The God of Jacob is our fortress." Psalm 46
We thank all members who have shared input and prayed as we discuss how best to bring God`s Word and Sacrament to God`s people during this time. As of this writing, state law prohibits gatherings of ten or more people. There are many Biblical issues involved. God commands us to gather for worship to hear his word and encourage fellow believers. Biblical examples show this was done in person.
The Bible also commands that we obey government authorities and help and be a friend in every bodily need. We understand that some people feel a strong need to gather for worship. Others have a strong need to avoid gathering to avoid spreading the disease and showing love to our neighbors. It is important that we not judge those who might feel differently on this subject, but instead show kindness and respect to all views that come from loving, Christian hearts and are striving to follow God`s Word.
Praying and considering all options, the council has decided that while face to face gathering for worship is still ideal and always will be, for this time we will be offering worship online. Details for how to view and participate in worship has already been emailed to the membership. Feel free to share it with your friends and neighbors. The recording will include as much of the service as possible, with a live audience of less than 10, to enhance singing.
This decision was made taking all points into consideration and with much prayer and concern for all members, as well as the perception in our community. We look forward to resuming in person worship as soon as possible.
Pastors and Vicar are willing to meet with anyone individually to share God`s Word and serve communion. This could be done at either facility or in your home. Pastors and Vicar are also happy to meet and do a personal worship service with you.
We ask for your continued prayers at this time. We continue to trust our unchanging God and his promises. "All things work together for good to those who love God." "In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! Jesus has overcome the world."
