Dear Messiah Lutheran and St. Stephen's Episcopal Church family,
Due to community spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Council of Messiah Lutheran Church has prayerfully decided in a unanimous decision to suspend in-person worship at Messiah effective immediately.
There will be no in-person worship at Messiah Lutheran Church beginning this Sunday, November 22.
Plans are being made to provide resources for families to use for worship at home.
A prayer in time of sickness:
Almighty and merciful God, you are the only source of health and healing; you alone can bring calmness and peace. Grant to us, your children, an awareness of your presence and a strong confidence in you. In our pain, our weariness, and our anxiety, surround us with your care, protect us by your loving might, and permit us once more to enjoy health and strength and peace; through Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Messiah Lutheran Council
With the outbreaks of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the United States and around the world, our church and its leaders continue to minister to its members, to those who are hurting and searching for peace, and to those in need. You can help the ministries of the ELCA by supporting your local congregation and making a gift to the ELCA’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Your donation will provide funds to the ministries of the ELCA most in need and best positioned to help. This includes our congregations as well as local and churchwide ministries capable of reaching and assisting those in need. Additional resources for congregations and members regarding worship, stewardship and assistance programs are available at ELCA.org/PublicHealth.
