Worship

God has not given us a Spirit of fear, but rather a Spirit of Power, and of Love, and of a Sound Mind! 
2 Timothy 1:7

Worship online Nov. 22-Dec. 13!
 
People are advised not to gather with anyone outside of their household, and there are restrictions on many businesses. The number of cases is high and rising, and hospital capacity is a significant concern.

The Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church has ruled that churches are in the Red Phase.

Church buildings are closed. Specifically, this means:
  • Churches should worship online only.
  • Pastoral care visits should be done by phone or online.
  • Staff, leadership team, ministry team, youth group, and other group meetings should be done virtually.
  • Weddings and funerals should be postponed if at all possible. Outdoor weddings and graveside services can be conducted provided no more than 10 people are gathered and those present follow social distancing guidelines and family units remain at least six feet apart from one another. These gatherings should be live streamed when possible to allow greater participation.
  • Under state order, there can be no wedding receptions or post-funeral gatherings through Dec. 18.
  • Church volunteers should cease activities that require them to leave their homes.
  • Having a few people record or live stream worship from your church sanctuary is permitted. If you do this, be sure everyone in the building follows social distancing guidelines and that the number of people does not exceed 10 in compliance with Minnesota Department of Health recommendations.
  • Clergy can leave their homes in order to do essential work that cannot be done remotely; they should remain at home and connect with people virtually whenever possible.
