Dear Church!
 
A virtual hug to all of you on this blessed Good Friday. You should have received the link for our livestreamed Good Friday worship from Deanna Gaunt yesterday: https://youtu.be/7nvSpkBfDyU. As with all of our livestreams, this will be recorded and viewable on our YouTube channel if you are unable to watch it live.  Deanna will send out the link for Easter Sunday worship tomorrow, which will be livestreamed on YouTube at 11am, April 4.
 
Closed Monday, April 5
The church office will be closed Monday, April 5, so staff can rest!  We’ll be back at 9am Tuesday morning.
 
Return to In-person Worship
Our planned reopening is April 18.  Worship is available at 9am and 11am by reservation only.  You can make a reservation beginning April 12 when we email you a link to use to make your reservation.  If you have a computer, we respectfully request that you click on the link to make the reservation rather than calling us.  We wish to use phone reservations for those who do not have computer access.  We are limited to 40 seats at each service.  Masks are required, your temperature will be taken before entering the building, and we ask that you sit six feet apart from anyone who is not in your immediate household, even if you are vaccinated.  We will share more information with you next week. 
 
April Shared Harvest
Shared Harvest is a joint ministry of several local Lutheran churches who deliver food once a month to working-poor families.  They deliver up to 52 bags of groceries each month.
While we are worshiping online, you may drop off your Shared Harvest donations at the church office on Mondays between 9am and 4:30pm (except for April 5 when we’re closed) or Tuesdays through Thursdays between 9am and 2pm. 
 
The last day to drop off your donations for the April assembly is Thursday, April 22.  Our shopping list for April includes:
  • Canned Fruit (We need 26 cans.)
  • Powdered Milk Packets (We need 26 packets.)
  • Peanut Butter (We need 17 jars.)
  • Laundry Detergent (We need as much as possible.)
