Laestadian Lutheran Church of Elk River Communication: May 22, 2020
As various activities resume, we await the time when we can gather at our church. Our scheduled activities as noted on our calendar continue in an online-only format, in most cases originating from our facility, with those individuals necessary to conduct and webcast the service present. Our church is not open during services and we encourage all to listen online. May we all remember how important and special it is to gather together around God's Word.
This global health situation continues to unfold and we wish to remember our President, national, and local governments and authorities in our prayers. We also pray for those who have fallen ill from this virus and those who suffer from the economic turmoil this situation has caused. Remember now, as always, how Jesus instructed us to care for our neighbor in love and with prayer. Let us encourage each other to trust that this, too, is from God and is happening for His purposes. The psalmist reminds, “Be still, and know that I am God" (Ps. 46:10).
