Laestadian Lutheran Church of Elk River Communication: March 26, 2020
The MN Dept of Health (MDH) is asking everyone to stay at home except for essential needs from March 27-April 10 to slow the spread of COVID-19. We will resume our service schedule in an online-only format. This starts on Sunday, March 29. Wednesday evening activities will be replaced by an online service. The media committee is exploring the idea of holding Sunday school and Bible Class in an online format. 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).
