Grace Lutheran Church
COVID-19 & Grace Lutheran Church                                                                           (Updated 7/11/2020)

We pray that you are doing well and staying safe!  We will soon gather in our parking lot for outdoor worship on July 12! Please read the article below. We pray you are all safe and stay safe this holiday weekend.  We pray for the many families suffering from COVID-19 and for all the racial unrest in our country. Pastor Dan
 

Outdoor Worship
We have decided to give Outdoor Worship a try beginning on July 12, at 9:30 am, in our parking lot!  Our plan is to have Outdoor Worship on July 12, 19 and 26. Worship will not be exactly like it was before COVID-19, but it will be great to see one another! Please wear a mask! And remember all the social distancing rules we have heard so much about the last few months.

 

We will block off the large portion of the parking lot for our worshipers.  You may park in the south end of the parking lot or on the street.  Bring your own chair and we will sit social distancing ourselves from other family groups.  I am still planning the worship service.  We will have bulletins for you.  We will not have communion, but you may come into my office after the service for private communion, if you wish.

Office Hours

Please remember that I am at the church on Sunday from 9:00 to 11:00, Tuesday from 10:00 to noon, and Wednesday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.  Communion is available on request.  Please call if you would like home Communion or just to talk.  The best number is my cell 920-594-2015.  



Online Broadcasts
Although Grace will not be offering any worship broadcasts during this time, many online and broadcast worship opportunities are available in the Valley.

 
Here is a link to a previous member of Grace Lutheran, Pastor Alan Schaffmeyer's Sunday Sermons - Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church from Washington Island in Door County WI.
 

Please remember your offerings. We still have bills to pay! You may mail your offering envelopes or drop them off. You can also make payments from your bank account by using electronic banking.
 
Let us Pray,
Eternal God, amid all the turmoil and changes of the world your love is steadfast and your strength never fails. In this time of danger and trouble, be to us a sure guardian and rock of defense. Guide the leaders of our nation with your wisdom, comfort those in distress, and grant us courage and hope to face the future; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.


Blessing Box:
As part of COVID-91, we are getting a lot of daily use for the Blessing Box and are filling it daily.  With the warmer weather, we can start putting canned items out and we are short on them.  T
 
We can also use Spaghetti O's, pasta, boxed type of meals, etc.  If you find a deal on cereal we can always us more as it goes fast.
 
If you are able to help you can put the items under the table in the entrance on days that Pastor Dan is there.  If you cannot shop we can use donations and we will shop for you.  Again, those can be given to Pastor Dan.
 
Bless you and thank you all who contribute!
