Worshiping During COVID-19
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!
