Update from Pr. Arthur Bergren

 

Dear Fellow Members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church & School,

Grace and peace.

We are excited to announce that in person worship will begins Sunday, March 7 at our 11 a.m. Modern worship. Here’s what you can expect:

You will register the week before the service you are attending. Check out the registration section below for more details.

On Sunday, you will walk through the Corson Family Riverview Entrance with your mask on. Then you will sanitize your hands at a hand cleaning station. You will keep 6 feet of distance from those who are not in your bubble.

As you enter the sanctuary, you will pick up an individual prepackaged communion kit. The communion supplies will be on tables right outside of the sanctuary. You will select a pew that is marked. There you will remain until the end of the service. You can speak softly and sing softly with your mask on. You can share the peace with those in your bubble. Worship Leaders will take their masks off when leading worship.

When communion distribution occurs, it is safe to take off your mask according to our doctors. There is no hand shaking, no food service and no offering plate passing at this time. You will leave providing the 6 feet of distancing.

Registration Information:

  • In order to ensure safety, we are asking those who desire to attend in person worship to register. You can register to attend in person worship, which will open Monday at 9 a.m. and close Friday at noon for the upcoming Sunday.
  • You can register by clicking HERE or by calling the church office at 352-3850. First come, first served. There is a waiting list in the registration system so those who don’t make it in the one week will automatically be placed into the top of the list for the following week.
  • The Corson Family Riverview Entrance doors will open at 10:45 a.m. Both the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services will continue to be live streamed. Assuming pandemic numbers continue to decline, we will reopen the 9 a.m. Traditional Worship on Sunday, April 4 for in person worship.

For any questions or inquiries, feel free to call the church office.

Together, we will keep one another safe!

 

In Christ,

Pr. Arthur
