Our Current Practice:
In-church services restarted in July but are again suspended due to COVID-19 numbers and are currently livestreamed. As St. Paul's moves forward we will continue to have one livestreamed service every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. until further notice. It is a worship service with hymns and songs, and typically lasts an hour.
Currently, Communion in the Parking Lot is offered on set Sundays at 11am.
Members can also participate in communion while at home via video.
When church services resume in person: Communion packets are available to the worshipers as they enter the church. The ushers will hold the trays as they pick up their packet. We realize that some are difficult to open, but this is the safest way to serve communion during this pandemic. Upon direction from Pastor Teklu, the worshipers will eat the wafer and drink the grape juice or vice versa at their pew.
The service follows a setting in the Lutheran Service Book, and hymns are led by our organist, songs are led by the worship team, "Whatever". Items in the service are projected onto two screens at the front.
Due to Covid-19, St. Paul's Sunday School is virtual instead of meeting in-person every Sunday, September thru May. Children ages 3 through middle school are invited to join.
Younger children are always welcome in our worship services, however if need be, parents and children can listen to the service from within the conference room or in the narthex.
Adult Bible studies are held from 11am to 12noon every Sunday by Zoom or conference call (1to 2pm when Communion in the Parking Lot is offered).
