Beloved of God,
I feel like a whole flurry of activity has happened since last week's newsletter! Much of that is due to the fact that on Wednesday evening, Governor Walz replaced the stay-at-home order with a stay safe order. Please know that our congregation's leadership is working hard to figure out what all of this means for St. Paul - doing research, checking with the Synod Office and other congregations, praying, and discussing. We ask your prayers and your insight as we all navigate the next step in this global pandemic.
Here are some particulars:
- A team of congregation members to lead us in communication, safety and congregational care for as long as we are living in the Covid 19 pandemic
- Preparing for Drive-in Worship, including Confirmation on May 31st and Senior Recognition Sunday on June 7th
- A communication survey to get your feedback
- Reviewing orders from the state and other scientific experts to make decisions about safe gathering at church
Thank you for your prayers and your diligence at this time. As always, please be in touch with any questions or concerns!
And remember Jesus' words: "I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:20
Peace to you, Pastor Sarah
