Service Schedule for August and September, 2020

The council met through a mix of in person and online attendance on July 21 in the Parish House.

One of the topics of discussion was when/where/how to proceed with worship in the coming months.  We decided to offer the following opportunities for worshiping together.

August 2 Outdoor worship under the oaks.  We had originally planned to hold worship on the back lawn of the Parish House to utilize our space and patio. With the expected heat in August and lack of shade, we have moved the worship to the lawn near the playset.  You are encouraged to bring your own chair. Seating will be available on part of our circle drive for those with difficulty walking.

Physical distancing and appropriate mask wearing are expected.  If you have not been with someone prior to this service, please maintain your physical distance of at least 6 feet..  When we share the peace, you are encouraged to use an alternative, non-contact means of sharing. When we sing, you are encouraged to sing with a mask on or hum if you choose to not wear a mask. We will celebrate communion together August 2.

While it is important that we make efforts to gather in person to share in worship and community, it is equally important that we a) keep one another safe, and b) help one another feel safe.

Please RSVP to the church office to let us know if you will be attending the August 2nd worship service under the oaks. The First Lutheran office email is: office@firstlutheranri.org

August 9, 16, 23, 30 Worship will be provided through Facebook, email and website.

September 6, 20 Outdoor worship, similar to above

September 13, 27 Worship will be provided through Facebook, email and website.

For October and following, council will decide as new information and guidelines become available.
