Worshipping Together Online

As we begin to live-out being church and worshiping together in Phase 2 of our reopening strategy, worship remains at the heart of all we do; yes, even apart – yet connected in new ways.

Our full liturgy Sunday services, which include at home communion, will continue to be live-streamed at both 9:00 and 10:30am on Facebook and YouTube as will our 30-minute midweek Wednesday worship service at 7:00pm.

Animal Blessings & Praying for Saints

On Wednesday, October 7 we will celebrate our annual Blessing of the Animals service, and on Wednesday, October 28 we will pray for the saints of Good Shepherd and those in our community who are experiencing loss.

Outdoor Worship in October

New to October: we will hold two small, socially distanced outdoor worship services on October 11 and 18 at 10:30am in the parking lot at our Verona Campus. These brief “Word and Prayer” services will include a sermon, song and prayer. Registration and masks will be required for these services. Please bring your own seating as chairs will not be provided.  (Registration links at the bottom of this email) 

As with all in-person gatherings, if you are ill or have been in close contact with someone known to have tested positive, you should love your neighbor and refrain from attending. As we begin exploring in-person opportunities, we will be following safety guidelines from our Covid-19 task force, and above all, we respect your own level of comfortability during this time.

Worship in All Seasons

Worship is an invitation by God to us, his people, to enter into a conversation with a loving and holy God. We worship God in all seasons – liturgically and communally – and will continue to shape online worship for feast days such as Reformation, All Saints, and Thanksgiving.

We are here for you…we love you…and we look forward to worshipping with you however you choose in the weeks to come.

Sincerely,

Pr. Chris Enstad
