Continuing Together In the Word During COVID-19
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has overturned the “Safer at Home” order which has freed the way for individuals, households, businesses and counties to determine how to resume activities. Our county has not adopted any additional measures, and our Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod’s district praesidium approves of our churches finding safe ways to reopen for public worship as long as we are abiding by local statues and recommendations.
The St. Lucas leadership team has approved the plan linked here to reopen for public worship and Bible class with the understanding that it is at our own risk and that the risks involved with the Covid-19 outbreak are substantial enough to provide extra safety measures for our public gatherings. We understand that each individual will have different comfort levels about attending our gatherings. We will continue to offer options for at-home worship and Bible study and respect a person’s choice to stay home. We will also appreciate attendees’ efforts to respect and follow the measures set forth in our plan as the recommended best practices for mitigating the spread of disease in church gatherings.
Since we were not able to gather as normal for Easter we invite children 3-10 to a one day VBS
on Tuesday, July 14 from 9 am to 3 pm.
Video Recordings of Weekend Worship
Even though we have permission to reopen for worship we understand if some individuals will make the choice to remain at home to protect their health. We will continue to provide a video recording of each weekend's service along with a copy of the service folder.
Continuing Ministry Support
We also encourage you to continue to remember your church in our prayers and with your offerings. Your continued financial support of our ongoing ministry will be very important as we anticipate lower church attendance. Our teachers are still offering online education to our students and our pastors will continue to find ways to minister to our people under government restrictions. You may mail in your offerings or if you are not already signed up for secure automatic giving from your checking account, savings account or credit card, you may call the office to sign up or sign up for automatic giving by clicking here.
Compelled by the love of Christ, we strive to make disciples for Jesus Christ through faithful use of the means of grace. Those means are God’s Word of Law and Gospel, Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper.
St. Lucas is proud to be a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
