Our Church Council met this week and made the following decisions that will be in effect this weekend:
The Center for Disease Control recently declared that transmission of COVID by touch is extremely unlikely (Less than a 1 in 10,000 chance, even less if people are vaccinated, Therefore we can safely and confidently use hymnals and hand out bulletins.
Since the county health department has suggested 75% capacity for public spaces (, the lectern side of the church will continue to have every other pew roped off for those who wish to continue social distancing.
New guidance from the CDC ( states that those who are vaccinated do not need to wear masks and can return to previous activities without restrictions. We will assume those who are not wearing masks have good reason to do so (vaccinated or breathing issues) and those who wear masks have good reason to do so (unvaccinated or cautious).

New Service Schedule   Starting Thursday (June 3) & Sunday (June 6) church service times will be changing to 6:00pm on Thursday nights and 8:00am & 9:30am on Sundays with a 30 min Bible study starting after the 9:30am service at 10:40am.  Friday service at 1:30pm will also still be offered.

Thank you and God’s Blessings For the next few weeks, gift/card baskets will be placed in the back of church for any and all well wishes for our kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Erin Krebs, and for our 5th grade teacher, Mr. Jacob Bohlmann, who have both taken calls to teach at sister congregations.  May the Lord continue to bless their service!
