*  Holy Communion, bread only, to be consecrated, shared, without contact as directed by the Pastor.

All attendees will remain in their vehicles and be able to "tune in" to the sound over their FM radio while myself and the worship leaders hold the service.  Paper bulletins (please consider bringing a tablet or other electronic device to view the bulletin to save paper and avoid contact), along with communion wafers in wax paper envelopes, will be handed out by greeters wearing mask and gloves, then you will be guided to a parking spot to view and participate in the outdoor church service.




Due to spiking COVID numbers, our Synod Bishop has recommended indoor in-person worship be ceased.  These are challenging times.  As your Pastor and on behalf of all of us elected to leadership positions in your church, we seek to continue in this ministry of the Gospel together responsibly, with the same care and compassion Jesus had for the sick and vulnerable he encountered, including you and me.  We do this now so that we may come together in fuller numbers somewhere down the line.  This is only for a time.

​                                                                                                                                                  Peace & Love,

                                                                                                                                                  Pastor Paul
