As per the directive from Governor Ricketts the restrictions for the Coronavirus quarantines have been eased. What this means for us at Hope Lutheran is that the limit of 10 people per room has been removed. Beginning with our service on the 8 July 2020 we will now be able to allow up to 50% occupancy in the worship area as long as family units are seated together and at least 6 feet from other family units. What we are doing here is welcoming all of you to worship with us in person or you can still worship with us online. As we are still following the regulations that Governor Ricketts have set up. This includes:

  • Maintaining 6-foot distance between family units
  • We will still be thoroughly cleaning everything in the church
  • If you are not comfortable in person, please feel free to wait to come back and worship with us online
  • If you are elderly, showing any symptoms, or been in contact with anybody showing symptoms please stay home
  • Bulletins are printed with all orders of service and hymns so that hymnals are not used

Sunday School will start back up slowly based on when teachers are comfortable coming back and families with children start coming back. We are going to wait for Bible class to start up till the 7th of June.  VBS will continue to be held online with weekly packet distributions through the end of July.  Adult Bible class will be streamed online after church. Of course, the situation can easily change. As the spread of this virus effects man, please know that Pastor Awe is always available for any questions or concerns that anyone may have. We look toward Jesus our great physician and healer to give us the health and comfort and peace that we all desperately need.
