The doors of Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church are now once again open.  Attending worship is your choice. If you choose to attend, we ask that you follow a few simple guidelines:

1.  Please be respectful of others already in church by maintaining a minimum distance of 6 feet from anyone who is not family or a companion (if you rode to church with someone, that is considered a companion).

2.  Wearing masks will not be mandatory, but if wearing one makes you, or others with you, more comfortable, then wearing one is strongly recommended. Wearing gloves falls into the same category.

3.  If you are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms, please do not attend worship until your symptoms are gone, and you are confident you are no longer contagious.

Also understand there will be no formal fellowship in the community room for the foreseeable future, but we are discussing other options as the weather warms. The sanctuary has been modified to video record services, which we shall do for the foreseeable future as some will not feel comfortable gathering for some time yet, if ever. We will celebrate Holy Communion, but how we do that has changed a bit which will be explained prior to the start of the service. For those who do not wish to attend the service, but would like to receive the sacrament, Bill Wendorf LLM will be available following the service until 11 AM to serve sacrament to any and all who wish to come to the church after the service has concluded.

 

May God bless us all in the days, weeks, months, and years to come.
