Where are we in the process of regathering?
We are offering a quiet, contemplative in-person service at 8AM on Sundays. Our 10:15AM service is fully open again and will be live-streamed at christandstlukes.org/live.
Do I have to wear a mask?
In correlation with the Bishop’s Health Advisory Panel, we are asking that all in-person service attendees wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. We believe that this is the best way to protect and care for one another as as well as ensuing that anyone who wishes to attend church feels safe in doing so.
Do we have to sign up to attend?
Will there be music? What about singing?
Yes! Our choir is still staying small for the moment, but we are resuming congregational singing and looking forward to having our full choir back soon. The choir will also be fully masked during service.
Will there be a printed bulletin?
How will communion work?
Will there be childcare?
We are now offering childcare for ages 5 and under during our 10:15AM service. Childcare is available in the Lychgate Garden starting at 9AM.
How will the Lloyd Hall and Parish House construction affect regathering?
The breezeway between the Parish House and Lloyd Hall has been closed off, and the Lloyd Hall restrooms have been closed due to construction. Currently the only bathroom available will be a port-a-potty (which includes a sink, soap, and paper towels for washing your hands). Additionally, the church does not WIFI. Please come prepared.
How else will the service be changed?
Some changes will include an abbreviated service, no Passing of the Peace, and Offerings will be collected in a basket in the back of the church.
What happens if I test positive for COVID?
If you attend an in-person service at Christ & St. Luke’s and later test positive for COVID, please contact the church office at gro.sekultsdnatsirhc@eciffo as soon as possible. We have an obligation to inform all who attended the service as soon as possible.
