We will start our Summer scheduled church services at Grace Church on Sunday, June 7th. 
We will be observing some special guidelines for a while until further restrictions are lifted.  In an effort to maintain "social distancing" at church, we will only be using every other pew.  We will be placing bulletins in the pews that we will be using.  When you enter the sanctuary, please only sit where the bulletins have been placed.  Generally, only three or four people who are not from the same household will be seated in each pew, to maintain six-foot buffers as best we can.

Please note these additional items:

 
*If you have a fever or feel ill, please refrain from attending church services.
*If you are considered "at risk" due to an underlying health condition, please consider not attending.
*We will continue to live-stream our service on FacebookLive, will continue to have it available on our YouTube channel and will still have DVD's available to anyone who desires one.
*If you have a mask, you are encouraged to wear one.
*Hand sanitizer will be available in several locations in the church.
*We will go without shaking hands and other physical contact.
*Upon entering church, please go directly through the main doors of the sanctuary to be seated.  Try to maintain a six-foot distrance from others who are entering.  Do not congregate in the narthex.
*When the service is over, Pastor Rimmert will remain at the front of the church.  The ushers will usher you out in reserve order from the back to the front.  Again, we are asking that you do not congregate in the narthex but go directly to one of the exit doors.
*The offering plate will be located on a table in the narthex.
*We hope to resume offering the Lord's Supper in June, after additional precautions are taken.  Should you desire a personal devotion and/or communion, Pastor Rimmert would be happy to arrange this with you.
*After the service, all seats, hymnals and Bibles will be sanitized.
*At this time, there will be no Sunday School or Bible Class.

Streaming WELS Churches
Nearly 500 years ago, the first Lutheran hymnal was published with just eight hymns.  In a little more than a year, we'll publish our latest hymnal with more than 600 hymns.  These hymnals won't just be for use at church and school.  Built into your new hymnal is a wealth of resources that will support personal devotions wherever you may be.  A daily devotion guide, sets of daily readings, Luther's Small Catechism, and a variety of personal prayers make the hymnal a perfect choice for home use.  You can learn more about this new hymnal by visiting the website christianworship.com  This new website will provide a more in-depth preview of our upcoming hymnal. 


The Good Steward Resale Shop is OPEN--but not taking any donations!!
The Good Steward Resale Shop is located at 1930 Rose Street.   There is always something new at The Good Steward and purchases help with Luther High School student tuition.   So, when you are cleaning closets or doing Spring/Fall cleaning, remember that The Good Steward is always looking for items.
This is your church!  We have resumed the practice of having greeters at our services.  Greeters are to offer a friendly welcome to worshipers at our services.  There are many times during the year when the church needs your help.  Please consider helping with one or more of the following tasks:
Greeting
Cutting the grass
Helping with Sunday or Vacation Bible School
Being on a committee
Cleaning the church
Being an usher


If you are interested in any of these areas, please let Pastor Rimmert know!
