 Parish Worship

With a thankful and cheerful heart

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Please download and print the WORSHIP BULLETIN.

In-person worship this Sunday, July 12th, is at 9 AM at Strickfaden Park. The service will be broadcast to car radios in the parking lot of Strickfaden (it reaches all spots!) on 101.7, you can sit in the shelter house, or you can bring a lawn chair and find a spot in the grass. Click on the following link to see the Sunday July 12th Zoom worship at 10:30

  • Masks are required for all people over two years old. If you do not have a mask, you will be provided one.

  • For the foreseeable future, worship is back to the regular schedule, just in a slightly different location. We have communion on the first and third Sundays of the month.

  • Please bring your bulletin to worship with you. If you need one mailed to you, please let us know. This week, please bring a piece of paper and a pencil or pen for a (fun) sermon activity.

  • If there is rain, we will worship in our church parking lot so you can stay dry in your car. This will be announced in an email on Sunday morning by 8 AM.

  • Due to the increased spread of covid when people sing (even with a mask), there will be no singing. You are invited to hum or simply enjoy Morgan’s music.

  • Please sit with your family group and stay at least six feet from other people who are not part of your family group.

  • We understand that some people have allergies or cough all day, everyday. However, to keep everyone safe, if you begin to cough please return to your car.

We hope that this service goes well and paves the way toward additional worship together in-person. These decisions are made after so much prayer and discussion by the action team, and we follow the guidelines of the CDC, the health department, and our insurance company. We also act out of love for each of you! Please be patient, kind, respect everyone, and show how you love your neighbors and church family by wearing a mask. Who knows, you could save their lives!

Upcoming Dates and information

  • July 14th at 9:30 AM on Zoom is book club, reading chapters 3 and 4 of “Liturgy of the Ordinary”

  • Thursdays at 10 AM is weeding in the Giving Garden

  • July 21st at 1:00 on Zoom is Women’s Bible Study (this is one week later than I previously mentioned). If you would like a magazine, please let me know.

  • August 16th our seminary student for the year, Morgan Walker, will be with us. We continue to pray for her as she finishes Clinical Pastoral Education as a chaplain in a hospital before beginning her second year at the seminary. She is quite local and is from Vermillion! She will lead worship at the park AND on Zoom.

  • Hymnals are still available to be borrowed. Please let me know before you borrow one.

  • If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Walking with you in Christ,

Pastor Stacy
