Good Shepherd Lutheran Church Family,
The situation surrounding the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to change rapidly. We have been monitoring information as it has been made available. On the evening of March 17, the Board of Elders with the Church Council met to discuss our response. The Board of Elders, having oversight of the church’s worship activities, decided to postpone all church gatherings and activities through March 30th. We will meet again at that time to reassess the situation.
We attempted, for the first time last Sunday, to stream the service via Facebook Live with positive results. We plan on making the services scheduled over the next two weeks available on our Facebook page. We will also continue to provide the audio of the sermons on SoundCloud and on our website. We will make future announcements on our Facebook page and through our announcement email list. If you would like to be on that list, contact the church office.
Please know that these decisions were not entered into lightly. This situation is unique to our modern times and causes us to consider anew how we can best show God’s love to our neighbor. We can find peace at this time by trusting that God has us in His hands and that, through His Son, our salvation is secure.
Pastor Silas Mehl
