Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent. As you may have read earlier in the Informer, ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving also began. We have “God’s Global Barnyard” boxes available to our youngest members as a fun and interactive way to discuss this with our children.
Mini Resurrection Eggs will be available at church through Holy Week. The eggs are a hands on way to teach and tell the Easter story. Click the link below to hear our big announcement, listen to the story “God’s Promise’s to Abram” and sing a song.
Rise Again Team – Masks are now optional at Our Savior’s (but still recommended for unvaccinated).
The Rise Again Team met on 2/24 and recommended to revise our mask policy for the congregation and the Church Council approved the recommendation.
“The Rise Again Team recommends a revision to the current policy, which makes mask wearing optional. A sign that someone sees while entering the church might read. ‘At this time, masking is optional at Our Savior’s. We recommend that unvaccinated people wear a mask.‘ This guidance applies to all aspects of the church.
Areas of the current policy that will remain in place:
- Physical Distancing configuration will still be maintained through the Sanctuary
- Air Movement Strategy will be maintained through the Service
- There will be no Food and Coffee service at this time
- Reservation System will still be in place for Easter Services.
On March 31 the Team plans to meet again and review Covid nationally, regionally, locally, and at Our Savior’s. The Team will once again make a recommendation to the council based on that discussion.
