Hebrews 3:1–6 "Why Perseverance Matters"

  

Noon Prayer with Vicar Mason

 

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 have ONLY ONE OUTDOOR Saturday service this week (7:30 p.m.). Please bring lawn chairs or blankets, and masks are optional. 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. 

Because of the variety of services offered this weekend, we are not dividing the congregation and suggesting attendance certain days this weekend. The following week, July 18–19, if your family normally worshiped on Sunday, please try for last names L–Z to  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 School lesson materials are available on our website (chapelofthecrosslutheran.org/health). Sunday morning Bible class will continue to be offered online. 

You are encouraged to continue to worship from home if that makes you more comfortable.

God's blessings this week!

Noon Prayer with Vicar Mason

 

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 have one Saturday service this week (6:00 p.m.). 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, July 4, at 4:30 p.m. THERE IS NO 6:00 P.M. SERVICE THIS SATURDAY. If your last name begins with L–Z, worship on Sunday, July 5, at 8:00 a.m. or 10:45 a.m.  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.
