In-Sanctuary Worship and Livestream
Messiah Lutheran Church
November 20th Announcements:
Christmas Eve Worship:
We will have opportunity for in Sanctuary worship on Christmas Eve. We are asking to have RSV's sent in with numbers attending so we can cap the number at 70 tops per service and keep social distanced. Also, absolutely we need everyone attending to wear a mask! The times for the service(s) are going to be 3:30 and 5;30. It will be a candle light service. We need a bit of time to clean/disinfect between services. If there is a huge outpouring of desire to worship on Christmas Eve, in the sanctuary, we will be open to add a third service at a later time. Please contact Becky with RSV's. The deadline will be December 15th. Also, there will be NO Christmas day service this year. If you have any questions or concerns make sure you contact Pastor Mark at (218) 851-3153.
Annual November-December Food Drive
Due to Covid-19, the food drive looks a bit different this year. Thrivent is not doing the item match this fall. The council has earmarked $1,000 to go toward the Hoffman-Kensington Food Shelf this month. In addition, we are asking for individual contributions in cash from members to go toward this important local need in our community. We have a box set up in the entrance to the sanctuary where checks or cash can be dropped off at time of worship or through the day. The box will be secured and emptied each night. Please consider giving to this important need in the next month to come. I plan to have this available through Christmas Eve. Thank you in advance. I know we will have a great response to this plea!
November 16, 2020 Announcements:
Per the decision to go to on-line/distance learning at the school, there will be no more Sunday school in the sanctuary until further notice. Also, it means there will not be a Christmas Program, as was planned.
The Quilting and Missions Fellowship will not be meeting on Thursday Afternoons until further notice.
Impact is meeting at the church Tuesday November 17 at 3:30 to 5:00
Office is closed November 26 and 27th
Messiah is currently looking for a custodian willing to work about 7 hours a week with mostly flexible hours. Please contact Becky at the church if you are interested by December 1.
We thank you for giving to the roof fund. If you have not given your 2020 pledge, please do so before the end of the year if you are able.
