Chapel will celebrate Worship with Communion this weekend!

A full list of precautions and procedures is available here
In order to be able to worship in person while allowing for social distancing, we need your help. We have two Saturday services (4:30 and 6:00 p.m.), two Sunday services (8:00 and 10:45 a.m.), and the Monday 7:00 p.m. service, as well as the Wednesday 11:00 a.m. service (set aside for higher risk members). The pews and Narthex will be cleaned between services. 

To help spread out attendance this weekend (August 29–30), we suggest that families who would have normally attended Sunday service please try for last names A–K to  worship on Saturday and L–Z on Sunday. Obviously, this may not be possible every week, but if we all try our best to accommodate this schedule, it will help us keep Worship safer, more evenly distributed, and orderly. Our goal is to have 80–100 people per service on Saturday and Sunday to accommodate our average weekend attendance. Next week, September 5–6, we will alternateAs always, our Livestream will be available every Sunday at 8:00 a.m. and then On Demand at chapelofthecrosslutheran.org/online.

Morning Devotion with Pastor James

Hebrews 11:17–40 "Swap Your Uncertainty for Certainty"

  

 

Chapel will celebrate public, in-person worship this weekend! Please watch this video so you know what to expect. A full list of precautions and procedures is available here.

In order to be able to worship in person while allowing for social distancing, we need your help. We will add two Saturday services (at 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.) during this transitional time. We will still have the Sunday 8:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. services and the Monday 7:00 p.m. service, as well as the Wednesday 11:00 a.m. service (set aside for higher risk members). The pews and Narthex will be cleaned between services. We highly encourage you to abide by the following guidelines:

1. If you usually worship at the Monday 7:00 p.m. service or the Wednesday 11:00 a.m. service, then please continue to do so.

2. If you usually would not worship Monday at 7:00 p.m. but would like to for the time being, then please do. We anticipate being able to accommodate the current Monday night crowd with more added to that service.

3. If you are 75 years or older or at higher risk for another reason, please consider attending the Wednesday 11:00 a.m. service. If you are not in a higher risk category and would normally not have attended this service, please allow this service to remain exclusively for our most at-risk members. We feel we can accommodate those who regularly attended and our 75 and older members at this service.

4. If you regularly attended Sunday 8:00 a.m. or 10:45 a.m. services, we ask that you would alternate throughout the summer between the newly offered Saturday and your normal Sunday services if possible.

If your last name begins with A–K, worship on Saturday, August 1, at 4:30 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. If your last name begins with L–Z, worship on Sunday, August 2, at 8:00 a.m. or 10:45 a.m. The following week, August 8–9, L–Z  worship on Saturday and A–K on Sunday. Obviously, this may not be possible every week, but if we all try our best to accommodate this schedule, it will help us keep Worship safer, more evenly distributed, and orderly. Our goal is to have 80–100 people per service on Saturday and Sunday to accommodate our average weekend attendance. As always, our livestream will be available every Sunday at 8:00 a.m. and then On Demand at chapelofthecrosslutheran.org/online.

Sunday morning Bible class will continue to be offered online.
