Wednesday Evenings at Church

mostly “Curbside” – everything outdoors, masked, and

socially-distanced

led by our Confirmation Students and open to the entire congregation


Wednesday, Feb. 24 ~ Curbside Soup Drive ~ 5:15-6:00 pm

Missing our Soup Suppers?  Let’s honor the tradition by donating cans of soup (or other non-perishable food items) to the Food Shelf.  Drive thru the lower parking lot at church.  Confirmation students will be here to collect donations.


Wednesday, March 3 ~ Pick up a Lent Luminary ~ 5:15-6:00 pm

Confirmation students will be making Candle Luminaries for Lent.  Pick up a luminary outside at church and take it home.  Display this luminary at your house – inside or outside – throughout the weeks of Lent. 


Wed., March 10 ~ Drive Thru Bible Story ~ 5:15-6:00 pm

As we prepare for Holy Week, experience the story of Peter’s Denial in a new way.  Drive thru the parking lot at church, passing groups Confirmation students who will recreate scenes from the story around campfires. 


Wed., March 17 ~ Circle Prayer at 5:30 pm: One Year Later… 

It has been a full year now since we met indoors for in-person worship.  Join us at 5:30 pm; we’ll form a large social-distanced circle in the parking lot, and we’ll say a prayer to mark this anniversary.  (Similar to what we did on Christmas Eve with singing Silent Night.)


Wed., March 24 ~ (It’s Almost Easter) Egg Hunt ~ 5:15-6:00 pm

Confirmation students will hide eggs for younger kids (and the young at heart) to find.  Also, take home Easter Eggs with Bible Verses inside to help you honor and celebrate Holy Week at home. 


Stop by Church anytime between 5:15 and 6:00 pm

There will also be an online worship service following our in-person activities



The Annual Meeting of LCGS was held by Zoom on Thursday, February 11 at 7 pm.

Thank you for joining us for worship! 

We are missing you in the building, but know that WE are the church and we are praying for you! 

Please sign up for our e-mails below. We are also on Facebook! Currently our office is closed but if you need to contact us, we will be checking our messages and e-mails regularly. 

Here we are friends.


We will not be gathering to worship in the same place - our church building, we hope to provide a worship experience online. 

We will be learning as we go, how to reach out digitally to as many people as possible. 

 


We are following the CDC and the State of MN Guidlines for use of gathering space. Please stay home and take care of yourself and your loved ones.
