It is with great joy that we announce a further stage of our re-opening of Jehovah Lutheran Church for Divine Service in our sanctuary. With a decline in active COVID cases in Minnesota and vaccines becoming more available, we believe the time is right for beginning a phased-in reentry to worship in our sanctuary.
In place of the two 15-minute communion services, we will begin holding one live service each Sunday that will last 30 minutes. Masks, social distance, contact tracing, and filling out the Jehovah wellness form will be required at this service. The service will contain a spoken liturgy, sermon, and the contactless celebration of Holy Communion. At this time, there will be no singing in the service. This will be the first step for us in coming back together for Divine Service in person, and other steps will follow when it is safe to take them.
This live service will be held each Sunday at 9:30AM, beginning this coming Sunday, February 21.
If you wish to attend these services please register online for the service at our own website, jehovahlutheran.org.
For the present, we will also continue offering the pre-recorded Service of the Word for those not attending the live services. This service will be available at our website, jehovahlutheran.org. If you receive the recorded service from Jehovah on a DVD or CD, we will continue to send you one, unless you request otherwise.
