Return to In-Person Worship: 2/28/21

We are excited to announce that we will be offering the choice of gathering in person again. Current 14-day Madison County COVID positivity rates have trended down for several weeks and are currently at 8% (2/17/21). Please understand that your Council does not make this choice lightly and please understand that worshiping in person IS a choice. If you do not feel safe or if you are showing any signs of illness, please continue to worship online. If you do feel like you can come in person, please be understanding of the need to continue to wear masks and social distance. There are a wide range of feelings, even in our own congregation about returning to in-person worship. Please be understanding and loving with all of our brothers and sisters in Christ. Let’s overflow with Grace for one another!

In the words of some good old Lutheran Hymns:

Rejoice, Rejoice, Believers we have determined that it is again time to offer the option of in-person worship.

Now we Join in Celebration at our Savior’s Invitation to gather once again within the walls of St. Paul Lutheran Church.

For All the Saints have lost touch with one another, let us find that community spirit once again.

Greet Now the Swiftly Changing Year – it has been decided to hold one service at 9:30 a.m. beginning February 28th.

With him as Lord to lead our way
In want and in prosperity,
What need we fear in earth or space
In this new year of grace

How Blessed is the Place, O Lord, Where You are Worshiped and Adored and where we can prepare a safe environment for all in attendance. 

Now the Silence is still requested, mask up, social distance and listen.

How Good Lord to be Here, but we are in need of volunteers. Pat Nelson is recruiting readers and ushers so feel free to reach out to her: 515-468-0775

Songs of Thankfulness and Praise, Jesus, Lord, to Thee We Raise, for people willing to run the power point and sound. Contact Pastor Ioan if you are willing to be trained. 515-419-5224

Jesus, Refuge of the Weary, open our hearts for whatever way we decide to worship, even during these unprecedented times.

Soon and Very Soon we can get back to a more normal service but until that time we will remain one community of brothers and sisters in Christ, no matter where we are.
