Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
THIS EMAIL CONTAINS AN IMPORTANT CHANGE TO OUR IN-PERSON WORSHIP PRACTICES!!
This Sunday, November 22 we ask ALL WORSHIPPERS TO WEAR THEIR MASKS THE ENTIRE TIME THEY ARE IN THE BUILDING – ENTERING, EXITING AND THROUGHOUT THE SERVICE!
We are making this change out of prudence, because of current Covid worries across PA. We will reassess this practice each week as conditions warrant.
Sunday worship continues this week at Christ Lutheran and we look forward to receiving the strength of God’s Word and Sacrament and to praising our Lord together! Here are details about both our in-person and online worship.
Again, remember wherever people sit this Sunday, we ask them to please wear their masks throughout the service. If you know someone who does not check the website but comes to in-person worship, please pass this news on to them.
This Sunday, November 22 we will WORSHIP IN-PERSON AT ALL THREE OF OUR REGULAR WORSHIP TIMES – 8:30, 9:45 AND 11 a.m. This Sunday we will celebrate Thanksgiving. There will not be any children or adult Sunday School this Sunday. Watch for your December newsletter, and families check your email, for details about our plan for involving children in our celebration of Christmas.
During in-person worship we continue to sit at a social distance in every other pew, we continue to clean the pews between services and we are still not passing an offering plate or receiving Holy Communion up front, rather we receive communion at our seats using the pre-prepared communion kits.
We will also continue the Facebook Live stream. If you decide to join us in worship via Facebook, we will be Live at 8:30 Sunday morning. Our worship this week will be traditional with hymns, lessons, a sermon, prayers AND Holy Communion.
If you choose, you may participate in Holy Communion at home; communion kits are available to you here at church. A volunteer at the church will distribute them on Friday between 11 a.m. and noon. She will be in the parking lot by the office entrance (to your right as you drive toward the church building) to hand you your kit(s) and bulletin(s) through your car window. You are also welcome to come by and get a communion kit this week from the church office between 9 and 3.
I attached the bulletin below, just in case you do not get to pick one up. This will also be available for pick-up or at the in-person services.
Remember — YOU DO NOT NEED A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT TO PARTICIPATE!! ANYONE WITH INTERNET ACCESS CAN GET TO THIS LIVESTREAM from the Christ Lutheran Facebook page (www.facebook.com/christlutheranchurchdubois).
Take care. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the church office Friday 371-2470.
In Christ, Pastors John and Amy
Attention – Groups are meeting and activities are resuming. Please contact Pastor John Miller or Pastor Amy Godshall-Miller if you need their help in any way. They will continue to serve and pray for you and our community through this uncertain and difficult time.
