The Church Council, the Board of Lay Ministry, Erica, and and Pastor Miller unanimously and wholeheartedly have decided to end the recorded service and restore congregational singing to our in-person gatherings.
We made this decision on the basis of the current metrics of the COVID-19 pandemic in Minnesota and the extremely high rate of vaccination in our congregation. At this point, nearly 100%! of eligible members (age 12 and older) have been fully vaccinated.
Beginning on Sunday, July 4, we will discontinue the recorded service in its current form. We will offer the Divine Service in-person at 9:30AM. We will record portions of this service in audio form for distribution to our members who are unable to come to services in-person.
