Come meet our staff and tour the facilities! Tours of facilities will resume the week of June 15th. Call the Office to schedule a tour.
Please stay safe and keep all in prayer before the Lord at this time.
Holy Ghost will resume these services with the following safety measures:
We encourage the sick, compromised, and those who are yet “uncomfortable” to stay home.
We will continue to record a service and post on Holy Ghost Lutheran YouTube Channel. Bulletin News will continue to be emailed to families. Limited copies will be available at services (cost saving measure).
We will encourage social distancing as best we can. This may include marking off pews for seating.
We encourage the use of masks but this is a personal choice.
The Children’s Message will be done from the front of the church but children will remain with families.
Use of the Nursery and access to the Choir Loft is restricted. Please check with an Usher first.
We encourage elbow and fist bumps as you greet each other and in the receiving line.
We will sanitize pews, doors, door handles and knobs, rails, etc. in between services.
We will have hand sanitizing stations at the two entrances/exits of the church.
We may have ushers open the doors (touchless entry), and congregants can pick up their own bulletins and take home with them (touchless worship). Worship service will be printed out in its entirety through the month of June as an additional safety measure (hymnals and Bibles have been removed from pews).
We ask that offering envelopes be placed in the offering plate at the entrance to the church (no passing of plates) for those not giving their tithes and financial gifts digitally.
Distribution of the Lord’s Supper:
a) Pastor and Assistant(s) will sanitize hands.
b) The Common Cup will not be used for reception until further notice.
c) Communion will take place in a modified, socially-distanced, continuous line. Only one line.
d) The host will be placed into the hand, not directly into the mouth.
e) The individual cup will be handed to the communicant.
Faith & Fun Hour and Pastor’s Bible Class will resume in September.
May our gracious Lord and God bless and keep us as we strive by His Spirit to feed and to protect His people as we gather together in the name of Jesus to receive His gifts. The Lord be with you all.
