Because of Christ’s love, we want to be as physically present for each other as much as we can while also working diligently to serve and love each other and keep each other safe.
Consider these factors: on the one hand, COVID-19 needs to “burn itself out” as a pandemic.
On the other hand, if there is an outbreak in the Big Lake area and surrounding areas, there is great potential for more people losing their lives than would have with a more slowly spreading virus, because an outbreak would overwhelm hospitals and equipment availability.
With all of that in mind, we are resuming in-house, in-person worship with a LOT of caution and precautions.
Worship indoors, in-person in the Saron Lutheran Church sanctuary at 9:30 a.m.,
OR online through YouTube or Facebook.
Please DO NOT attend in-person if you have any symptoms or have been around anyone with symptoms.
Those in the more “high-risk” group are encouraged to find a way to worship online.
Households will need to remain at least 6 feet apart and we will only be able to accommodate 50% capacity (which should not be an issue in the summer.)
Masks are highly encouraged.
In the event of an increase in the rate of cases in Sherburne County OR someone who had attended an in-person gathering at Saron being diagnosed with or testing positive for COVID-19, we will discontinue in-person, in-house worship services again for a time and go to strictly online or online combined with drive-in services.
Your prayers are powerful. Pray that God would guide us and shine brightly through us. We can do this. And, through Christ Jesus, God will do even more than we can ask or imagine.
Saron's ministry to Saron members and impact on the community is increasing online. The word of God is going out even more than before. And we will continue, Lord willing, even after COVID-19.
Because of this, Sunday morning Tech Team members are needed!
The goal, to begin with, is 4 people every Sunday, at least 20 people total, on rotation. Run a camera! Push buttons! Adjust audio! Key grip! (Well, maybe not key grip. Yet.) Or be a part of creative support (images, video, design, editing etc.) that are a part of what's behind everything that goes online.
WHAT WE'RE AFTER: hope, peace, freedom in Jesus Christ COMMUNICATED; and community EXPERIENCED. Believe it or not, technology, when used wisely, can encourage relationships. That's what we want.
We need your gifts, skills, and interests!
