Worshiping During COVID-19

Your health and wellbeing is extremely important to us. Click here for the current status and the COVID-19 plan to gather.

In-Person Service

Sundays, 8 a.m. at St. John Lutheran Church

For indoor worship service, there are various safety measures in place to make it as safe of an environment as possible for all. It will be a shorter 30-minute service with limited seating, air purifiers, hand sanitizers and limited singing with no mass-group singing.

Sunday morning indoor worship will look a little different for the safety of all.

  • You may enter church using the door by the church office.

  • All individuals will need to wear a mask when entering the building for the safety of all individuals, including our own church family members who are vulnerable and not able to be vaccinated.

  • You can choose where you would like to sit; you may sit together in your family bubble and leave three chairs between each bubble.

  • You will be able to follow along during service with the printed bulletin and we will also use the large projector screens for your convenience.

  • When service ends, you will be dismissed through the lobby and Pastor Josh will give you the Words of Institution and the Communion elements.

  • Once you receive the Words of Institution and the Communion elements, you will exit the church front doors.

Before you come

  • Print the bulletin for everyone in your car or have them available on electronic devices. Link to bulletin is within the Virtual Worship section.

  • Bring your own elements for communion, bread or crackers and a small amount of wine or grape juice. If you are nervous about liquids in your car, bread alone will suffice; we trust that all of the gifts Christ gives us in this meal are present in each of the elements.

  • Consider bringing a financial offering for the ministry we share and some food to donate to Stocked Shelves Food Pantry.

When you arrive

  • To receive the bulletin and prepackaged communion elements (wafer and grape juice) or to provide food donations and/or offerings, go to the carport using the northern entrance (closest to the carport).

  • Tune to 92.5 FM.

While you are here

  • Please do not leave your vehicle unnecessarily.

  • Restrooms are available for emergency use only; masks and filling out the COVID form with your temperature are required when entering church.

  • Windows may be down during worship, but please wear a mask. When we sing, please raise your windows.

When it's time to head home

  • Feel free to stay a few minutes in your car if you would like to speak with Pastor Josh or make an appointment for a visit.

  • Head out into the world trusting in God's love, ready to share the Bread of Life!
