CORONAVIRUS UPDATES FROM PASTOR LEAH

(updated Sunday, 6/14/20)

Governor Murphy ordered all public gatherings to cease on 3/21/20.
Recently the Governor has placed the state in several phases of a reopening process.

We are reviewing the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), New Jersey Synod ELCA, & New Jersey Office of Homeland Security & Preparedness (OHSP) Considerations for Returning to In-Person Worship. We also sent out COVID-19 Worship Surveys for alternative feedback.

At this time, we will continue with Conference Call Sunday Worship Service @ 11AM
Join us on our toll-free number 701-802-5170. Then, use the access code 8221190,
& hit the # key. Log in & announce your name. Grab a cracker or piece of bread, along
with juice or wine, so we can have Holy Communion together. We will continue to use this

Conference Call Line for Church Council or any other meetings as well.

All programs, groups, in-person meetings, coffee hours, & fellowship time outside of religious

services will remain CANCELLED AT THIS TIME for the safety of everyone.

Our Food Pantry Hours of Operation are every Thursday from 10AM-1PM, & the Last

If you, or someone you know, whether they are from our congregation or not,
desires to have Holy Communion by phone, please notify Pastor Leah.

Please do your best to continue keeping in touch with one another.
Call each other, talk with one another, and pray with one another.
In the darkness and loneliness, we all sometimes need someone to talk with.

Please do not hesitate to call for any reason.
