FIRST LUTHERAN CHURCH
St. James, Minnesota
Responding to COVID-19 / Updates
July 1, 2020
We are slowly opening up the building to some program activities with caution. See the church newsletter & calendar below for more information.
We continue to live-stream our worship services on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. To view and participate in worship go to our Facebook page (see link below). You can also view past worship services on our Facebook page or on our YouTube channel (see link below).
In lieu of our regular evening worship services on Wednesdays, a devotional message will be posted on our Facebook page earlier on Wednesday.
WORSHIP UPDATE: On August 2, our plan is to add in-person worship in our sanctuary to our live-stream. Those people who are feeling well and desiring to attend worship in-person need to know these things: wear a mask, maintain physical distance from others not in your household, sit in designated pews, no singing hymns or liturgy, wait to be ushered out at the end, and do not linger in the building. We are sorry it has to be this way but this is a common set of guidelines other churches are also enacting. We will have limited numbers allowed in the sanctuary (135 in main, 25 in balcony). If we reach capacity, you can go to the Social Hall where the service will be on the screen or return home to watch it on your computer.
We will need ushers to help administer our guidelines. Please sign up on the form below or call the church office.
