WORSHIPING WITH COVID-19
St. Luke has returned to both in-person and online services. Service will be live streamed on YouTube. If you would rather join in by phone, just call 1 (512) 402-2718 and put in the PIN: 155 952 833#.
In order to do worship safely, we will hold to the precautions we took while indoors this fall, enforce them more carefully, as well as add new precautions to the mix.
Here’s what we’ve been doing and will enforce more strictly:
Masks are required before and after our service. During the service, the lectern-side of the sanctuary will be masks-required, and the pulpit-side, masks-recommended.
There will be a one-way traffic flow through the church. Please enter the building on the west side, under the carport and exit from the south doors of the sanctuary.
As you enter the building, please take a moment to wash your hands (or at least use hand sanitizer.)
While you are free to fellowship with one another outside of the building, please do not mill about indoors.
Seating in the sanctuary must be socially-distanced. To assist in this, every other pew has had its cushion removed, and we’ll ask you to sit at least six feet apart from the next household.
After the service, we will try to turn things around as quickly as possible for Bible Study. Remain seated if you’d like to stay for it, as we’ll be holding it in the sanctuary. If you cannot stay, please immediately leave the church out the south doors of the sanctuary.
Here are the additional precautions:
As you enter the church, you will have your temperature taken. If you have a fever, you will be asked to return home.
If you are sick or have recently been around someone with the coronavirus, please do not attend in person. (This has always been the case, but we need to be thorough here.)
If someone who attends with us in person later tests positive with the virus, you will be notified and we will move back to holding only virtual services for at least the two weeks following to make sure we’re not spreading it within our congregation.
This plan is not without risks and you very well may catch this disease while you are worshiping with us. But if you so greatly desire to receive God’s gifts in person and you knowingly choose to take this risk, you have the option. I say that not to dissuade you from attending, but to be clear and aboveboard with the situation we’re in.
None of this is anywhere close to the ideal Christmas we all want, but if it allows us to more safely gather together to receive the gifts of God in person, then we’ll do it.
With or without the disease, God is faithful. In person, online, or over the phone, services will continue. Whether we can meet or not, Christmas will come, because God has come. Though this year is full of changes, we hold to our God who does not change. In all things, He is our rock and our foundation.
St. Luke offers shelf-stable food and health / hygiene / cleaning supplies to the greater Nunica community. Located in the main entry of the church (on 2nd Street), the Care Cabinet is open 24/7.
We also offer information for Love In Action, if you need assistance in other aspects of life. Devotionals are available, as well as information of upcoming Feeding America food trucks.
Our Care Cabinet is 100% donation-driven. Please, take as you need and give if you can!
