In order to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the most vulnerable in our community, some aspects and ministries of First Lutheran Church remain closed. However, we are resuming worship in person starting June 14. Please see details about in person worship below. 


We recognize that we are still living with the risks and work of COVID-19, and so we will be re-introducing in-person worship as carefully as possible. You can expect a few new aspects of worship:

  • Worship will be a 30 minute service on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am and 10:00 am. 
  • Worship will also be live-streamed at 10:00 and the link to the livestream will be posted here. We encourage anyone who does not yet feel ready to be out in a group of people to make use of our live-stream worship, knowing that you will be joining us in just as meaningful a way as in person!
  • We are asking everyone to sign up ahead of time in order to keep worship attendance to around 50 people. Our sign-up system is designed to leave room for walk-ins- even during COVID, all are welcome here!
  • Sign-ups will also include volunteer opportunities for worship, including: clean-up crew (basic wiping down surfaces and sanitizing), lector (read scripture), and Communion server (assist pastor in handing out Communion at the end of service). We are so appreciative of all our volunteers who will make worship happen, so please consider signing up!
  • Precautions will be taken in the building and during worship to minimize risk of infection, including: not sitting in every pew to maintain distance, not passing objects during worship, not reusing bulletins, not having a lot of movement during the worship, and not singing. This last point is hard for me, because singing in worship brings a great amount of joy to many of us. In order to be as safe as possible, for now, we will refrain from singing out loud together. However, we have a fabulous line-up of organists and musicians who will be bringing meaningful music to our worship in other ways!
  • At this time, we are expecting everyone to wear a cloth mask while inside the building. Please bring one if you have one, or FLC staff will have a supply in the entryways. 
  • We will not be having a nursery (but parents, a shorter service is a great time to have your young kids start to learn how to worship!)
  • Because of the size of the chapel and the needed staff and personel to make worship happen at this time, we will not be having a Saturday evening option for worship. Please know this is not a permanent change, and as soon as we are able to expand worship options, we will include Saturday night.
