Pastor leads in a service our worship service for the 24th of January. Thank you to our guest reader.
Curbside Distribution Only
Due to expected extremely cold weather, on January 31, 2021, we will have "curbside" distribution of Holy Communion only by the elevator door on Elm Street. We have added Curb-side distribution from 10:15 - 11:15 for those that prefer to take communion at home.
We continue to look at the cornia virus numbers and our elders and ad board are in the process of discussing how we can safely re-enter the building,
Please continue to check back for updates.
In Christ, Pastor Pranschke
Pastor leads the third short service in a new series of short videos sharing about the importance of belonging and what it means to belong to a Lutheran Church. In this episode, Pastor speaks about the importance of holy baptism and what it means to your spiritual being. We pray these videos will help give some comfort and perhaps a plan of action during this challenging time. You are not alone, with Jesus you are never alone. Please call 201-664-1325 or email the church if you would like to speak to the Pastor.
