Church and Coronavirus19

                                                                 Church and Coronavirus19

                                                                           (April 30, 2020)

The Lutheran Church of Hope is resuming worship services beginning May 3rd.

We require that everyone wear masks.  If you do not have one, one will be provided.  We ask that everyone spread out in the sanctuary, maintaining a distance of at least six feet between one another.  Family groups, may of course, sit together.  We also urge those in the "high risk" category (those in our nursing homes and assisted living facilities, those with compromised immune systems, etc.) continue to stay at home.  Everyone, use your better judgment.  If for whatever reason you deem it best not to come to worship yet, don't come.  Err on the side of caution.  Your decision will be supported and highly honored by the fellowship.

Worship is all we'll do until further notice.  There will be no physical contact (shaking of hands, hugging, etc.).  There will be no "Bible Talk," no formal collection of offering (although offering plates will be on the table in the narthex where you may place your gift before or after the service), no "Fellowship Time," and no Sunday school.  Just worship.

Except for weekly Deacon meetings, monthly Council and WMF meetings, all other activities continue to be suspended until further notice.

We remind everyone that sermons are posted on our church website.  Click the "sermons" tab, choose "Sunday Sermons;" scroll down to and select the sermon you wish to read (read also the texts provided) and read.  Spend some time in prayer, and go ahead and sing -- sing out to the Lord!  "Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God" (Colossians 3:16).

In addition to sermons, a daily "Morning Meditation" is provided on our website for your daily spiritual nourishment, consisting of a Bible verse/passage to read and meditate on (pray it, pray through it, meditate on it).  You will find it on our "Ministries" tab.

Pastor Greg will continue to be at the church every day, in and out...  Feel free to stop by... for coffee, for prayer, for counseling, or just to visit.  Call, text, e-mail. 

I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD!"  (Psalm 122:1)
