Lake Community Church Updates
Worship Service Information - Updated 7/23/2020
Please note the following changes to our Sunday services due to the most recent Executive Order regarding face coverings. Both of our 9:00am and 10:30am services are MASK REQUIRED. We are asking everyone to respect and honor these guidelines. A few exemptions include children under the age of 5 and people with medical conditions that make it difficult to tolerate wearing a face covering. In addition, understanding the amount of exertion related to singing, if you are experiencing shortness of breath or labored breathing you can remove your mask while singing since we are socially distanced. However, we ask that you cover up immediately following singing. While masks are required, there will be people attending the service and in the building that will not be wearing masks according to the exemptions stated in the Executive Order. If you are not comfortable in this environment we encourage you to join us for one of our online services at 10:30am by clicking the LCC Live button at www.lakecommunity.org or finding us on Facebook Live.
9:00 am service - Worship Center MASK REQUIRED service
10:30 am service - Worship Center MASK REQUIRED service
10:30 am service - Online services - LCC Website and Facebook Live
Regardless of which service you attend, please use the hand sanitizers as you enter and exit, keep greetings contact-free, maintain social distancing recommendations, and gather outdoors instead of in the lobby or Worship Center.
We are excited that LCC worship services are now open! We have put in place some guidelines that we are asking everyone to follow. Please take the time to click on the button below and read the guidelines. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again!

UPDATE - posted 5/27/2020
Governor Tim Walz said Wednesday that the next phase of the Stay Safe MN order, beginning June 1, represents a “cautious, strategic turn of the dial. ”That new stage will include restaurants opening outdoor seating with limited capacity and social distancing in place, and salons opening with limited capacity.
"We're taking very seriously what the next step of that is," the governor said in response to questions about indoor seating for restaurants. "It was never meant to make people whole, it was one step in the direction."
He would not give a timeline for the next steps in the Stay Safe order for Minnesota.
UPDATE - posted 5/22/2020
President Trump on Friday announced that new Centers for Disease Control guidance will classify houses of worship as “essential,” as he called on governors to allow them to open “right now” after being closed during the coronavirus lockdowns.
Trump announced the policy for churches, synagogues and mosques, during a short briefing at the White House.
"The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now--for this weekend," Trump said. "If they don't do it, I will override the governors."
Attorney General William Barr already warned last month that coronavirus restrictions by state and local government should be applied evenly and not single out religious organizations.

Governor Tim Walz extends the "stay-at-home" order until May 18th.

UPDATE - posted 3/25/2020
Governor Tim Walz issued an executive order today asking Minnesotans to stay in their homes unless absolutely necessary. The "stay-at-home" order begins at midnight Friday, March 27th and goes through April, 10th.
People are still allowed to go places such as the grocery store, gas station and the doctor, and residents will be allowed to get outside for exercise, walk their dog or go on a hike with appropriate social distancing.
After two weeks, the governor said he hopes to scale back to more moderate social distancing measures for all Minnesotans for another three weeks. The more drastic measures would only be enforced for people at greatest risk of COVID-19 complications — mostly people who are elderly or have other health problems.
These are just a few notes that have been taken from articles. Please do your own research to get a full picture of what this situation entails.

COVID-19 UPDATE - posted 3/14/2020
Out of a desire to keep others safe and on the recommendations of our local, state, and federal government, we are moving our Sunday services online for the next 2 weeks. We are also postponing all other gatherings and meetings. Our motivation is the safety of those who may attend services and to join our community in the effort to keep the spread of COVID-19 under control.
