GRACE LUTHERAN CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENTS
Sunday, April 5, 2020
There will be no public, in-person worship at Grace Lutheran Church through the end of April. This includes Sunday worship, Lenten Wednesday evening prayer services as well as Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday worship.
All social and educational events and activities are cancelled. This includes Lenten soup suppers, fellowship hour, social events, Bible study, choir rehearsals, concerts, etc.
Please share this information with others from Grace who you are aware may not check or receive email. We will be trying to reach out to everyone, but your help is appreciated!
The office will continue to operate for the time being. However, we ask that you not enter the office itself. Calling (850-877-5423) or emailing (firstname.lastname@example.org ) are the best ways to reach out. In case of a pastoral care emergency, please contact Pastor Jenn on her cell at 850-800-7197, as usual.
Committees and ministry teams who feel that they must meet during this hiatus, are asked to do so via conference calls, Zoom or the like.
If you have not already done so, sign up to receive our weekly, electronic newsletter, which will help keep us connected as a church family. And be sure to watch for emails that shall be sent from the office throughout the week, with updates, reflections, etc.
Even though we are not meeting for weekly worship, we do ask that you not forget that we still need your benevolence in order to continue to operate from day to day.
Again, we ask you not come to the office in person. You may mail your offerings and contributions directly to the church at 2919 Miccosukee Road, Tallahassee, 32308. Our expenses continue just as yours do. We truly appreciate your generosity.
JOIN US FOR ONLINE SUNDAY WORSHIP. Our Worship service for this Sunday will be posted on Saturday at 5pm. You will be able to go to our website at https://www.gracelutheran.faith/ and click on a link in the green box on the home page. This link will take you to a recorded worship service, at Grace, led by Pastor Jenn. It will include the texts for this week, as well as a homily. More information about this service - as well as a few other things - will be available soon on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mygracelutherantally.
UNFORTUNATELY EASTER LILIES AREN'T GOING TO BE POSSIBLE this year - however depending on when we celebrate Easter - hopefully sooner than later - we might want to include spring flowers - like tulips or another seasonal plant. Karen will provide additional information as we get closer to that possibility. If any questions or suggestions, please let Karen Suchman know at email@example.com - or call or text her at 727-215-3546.
THERE WILL BE NO ALTAR FLOWERS WHILE CHURCH IS CLOSED. If you had signed up to sponsor flowers for the period that the church is closed, you may choose another open date on the flower chart, once the church opens again for worship services.
THE 737 PARTY HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED to Saturday, Nov. 7.
CHRIST IN OUR HOME ONLINE is temporarily being offered for free via Augsburg Fortress for the remainder of March and April, due to physical distancing during the Coronavirus outbreak that prohibits members from picking up their hard copies right now.
