Lake Community Church Updates
COVID Response Update - Updated 12/2/2020
We are excited to share that we are resuming in-person services on December 6. We will have in-person services onsite at our regular times of 9:00 am and 10:30 am. We will continue to stream the 10:30 am service online via Facebook Live and LCC Live.
Thank you to those of you who prayed for the Pastoral Leadership Team as we wrestled with this decision. We struggled with the high importance of being present with one another in worship and honoring one another's concerns about the pandemic. Covid is real and has hit our community hard. We are thankful for the sacrifice and hard work of those in education, healthcare, and other frontline and essential workers. Lake Community Church will return to in-person worship in a safe way and in compliance with the guidelines given by the Minnesota Department of Health. This is critical as we see cases in Douglas County remain high.
Please help us create a safe place to worship on Sunday morning. Here is a link to the health and safety guidelines for in-person worship. We ask that you help us by following these guidelines. Basically, try to keep social distance, wear a mask, and don’t linger too long. These three simple behaviors can go a long way in helping make Lake Community Church a safe place to worship.
We are excited to join voices with you in-person or online as we declare Jesus as Lord. Despite all the noise of the day, God is STILL on His throne and we will continue to seek His face. We love you and look forward to seeing you this Sunday.
Small Groups and larger ministries will resume at different paces. Children’s Ministry is anticipating a re-launch in mid-January. Student Ministry will resume next week (12/9) with adjusted guidelines. Small groups are able to meet again following guidelines so if you are in a group watch for information from your leader.
The PLT will continue to monitor the Covid situation. To help keep us connected, below are a few links that may be helpful for you.
Please join us in praying for our community, teachers, medical workers, essential workers, and the many families impacted during this time.
Worship Service Information & Guidelines
Masks are required for all services, events, and groups.
How can you help?
1. Wear your masks! There is a lot of hype and arguments related to this mandate, but the essence of this is the call to Love your neighbor and do your part to help prevent the potential spread of Covid.
2. Sanitize Frequently. We have numerous touchless sanitizer stands and pump dispensers throughout the building.
3. Maintain Distancing. This is challenging and unnatural for us as we gather to be together, but giving space in our conversations and groups is important and helpful.
4. Participate Wisely and Respectfully. If you have any of the Covid related symptoms, please be respectful of others and the potential risks and choose to stay home rather than bringing that to public and group gatherings. Also, people are testing positive while being asymptomatic so if you know that you have been directly exposed to someone who has Covid, recommendations are to self-quarantine until you are sure that you are not infected or contagious.
Health & Safety
The health and safety of all those who worship at Lake Community Church is extremely important to us. We want to keep you informed as we are making decisions and cancellations. The COVID-19 situation is dynamic and could change at a moment's notice. Please be patient and gracious as we do our best to communicate information during this time. Updates will be posted to this page.
