We are pleased to announce a return of LFCC gathering together for corporate worship! What you need to know:
· Weather permitting, on May 17, we plan to begin outdoor worship services at 10:30 a.m. on the church lawn that allow us to physically distance between family groups.
· It will be shorter than our regular service, and we are asking people to refrain from going into the church building.
· For those who are able, please bring your own lawn chair.
· We also ask that if you plan to sit on the lawn, you park so that we can leave open areas nearer the sidewalk for those who may wish to park there, remain in their vehicles, and still hear the service.
· We are working on a communion package that allows us to serve you in the most sanitary way possible. It may or may not be available for the first time or two that we meet.
· We will be sending song lyrics for the service via email that you can print off beforehand at home if you wish or read on your phone if you are able.
· Our offering time will look different, with buckets or a dropbox for people to leave their tithe as they go instead of passing a plate. When arriving and leaving, we need to respect the social distancing guidelines and refrain from hugs and handshakes.
· If we must cancel due to weather, we will activate the phone cancellation list and also announce it on Facebook and via email.
· On May 24 at 10:20 a.m. (also outdoors), we plan have a brief congregational meeting to approve officers, followed immediately by the installation of officers.
· The elders will continue to monitor the situation and make changes as necessary.
We are sharing via the link below the recommendations from Governor Holcomb about the guidelines for places of worship. We thank you for your support and prayers and ask that you remain patient as we iron out the wrinkles in this new phase. While this is not ideal or what we have come to think of as church, we want to be good citizens of this world and the next. We wish to be together and to do so in a way that shows love and concern for our church family and community, knowing that we bring a wide variety of experiences and viewpoints. We understand that some may not feel comfortable with returning yet, and our prayers continue for all of our most vulnerable members. For the time being, we will continue to share some sort of online message for those who need to remain at home. Please contact the elders or Pastor Pat if you have questions.
