Worship Updates regarding the State of Minnesota, Governor Walz’s Mandatory Mask Wearing effective Saturday, July 25th:

As we continue to face the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and the Minnesota Mask Mandate, we THANK YOU for wearing a face covering/mask during the entirety of the worship service, as well as outside if not social distancing 6 feet.

Mask Exceptions:

  • Children under the age of five.
  • Those with respiratory ailments for whom wearing a mask causes distress.

Other COVID Worship items:

  • The pastor does not need to wear a mask while preaching and presiding. However he must wear a mask while singing, distributing communion and greeting members where social distancing is not possible.
  • The other previous precautions all remain in place.  Including using hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the church.  Social distancing of 6 feet.  Designated singers will be masked or behind a plexi-glass barrier.
  • During the July 19 Immanuel Voter’s Meeting, it was decided that we will not be singing in church until further restrictions are lifted.
  • It was also decided in the July 19th Voter’s meeting that bulletins and sermon texts will be on a stand in the back, instead of placed in the pews to avoid waste of paper.

It is understandable that these precautions are an inconvenience.    We remember Luther’s explanation of the 5th Commandment:  “We should fear and love God so that we do not hurt or harm our neighbor in his body, but help and support him in every physical need.”

Keeping your mask on is not only a kind and charitable act, but an outward demonstration of the love and respect we have for one another. 

Please bring your own mask.  If you forget – we will have some disposable ones for your use.

Let us rejoice in the risen and ascended Lord! The times may be uncertain, but our salvation through Christ crucified is 100% certain. Eternal salvation in Heaven is ours through the grace of God. Let us praise the One true God wherever we may find ourselves at all times for the wondrous things he has done!

May God bless you and keep you.

Thanks be to God for your generosity
