Re-Opening Task Force Survey

Dear Friends, 

In his letter of May 13, 2020, Bishop Roth states:   “We will be renewing gathered worship, because simply reproducing the past is not an option.”  Our Re-Opening Task Force has been working diligently to understand the ever-changing guidelines on the safest ways for us to re-open our building and renew gathered worship.  

As we consider a variety of options we’d like to know your thoughts.  Please click here to complete a short survey about worship preferences.  If you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any member of the Task Force, or amy.chamley@gmail.com.

Many, many thanks to the members of our Re-Opening Task Force for their very important work:

Jim Hack, Nancy McCowen, John Hart, Marla Todd, Jenelle Keene, Greg Fisher, Mike Massey, Sam Fisher, Dan Corkery, Sandy Reifsteck and Ron Meyer.

Wash your hands, wear a mask, and keep praying!

Commemoration of the Emanuel Nine

The ELCA Prayer Service for Commemoration of the Emanuel Nine on June 17, 2020 marks the fifth anniversary of the evening nine people were shot and killed during a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. We join in a time of repentance, mourning and prayer as we remember these nine martyrs and renounce the sins of racism and white supremacy. www.elca.org
