The congregation of Our Saviour Lutheran Church, Fort Qu’Appelle, SK, is pleased to announce the resumption of worship services at the church effective Sunday, June 14, 2020. This resumption is part of the Phase 3 Saskatchewan Reopening Plan and we couldn’t be happier to be able to return to worship.
There will be two worship services on June 14 to accommodate the limitation of 30 people in order to ensure social distancing is maintained. Services are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
Some things will be different for worshipers in effort to prevent and control the potential of Covid19 infections within the congregation and the local community. We view prevention and control as the best options available to us so we may continue to gather for and enjoy fellowship, hear the Word and serve our Lord.
Effective June 14, 2020 the following practices will govern worship, evangelism and fellowship activities at Our Saviour Lutheran Church:
Gathering For and Leaving Service: Do not shake hands or hug. Use the hand sanitizer available at the door. Bring a box of tissues to leave on the pew for your use. If you are sick, please stay home until you are well.
Hymnals and Bulletins: Hymnals and bulletins will be available at the door for pick up and drop off. Hymnals will be wiped down with anti-bacterial wipes between services.
Seating: Every other pew will be blocked off to maintain 2 metre (6 feet) distancing. Do not sit directly in front of or behind someone.
Communion: There will be no communion.
Collection Plate: The collection plate will be at the exit.
Fellowship Meals Are Cancelled until Further Notice: The monthly breakfast potluck scheduled after Divine Service on the third Sunday of the month after Divine Service is still cancelled until further notice. The Monthly Men’s Breakfast regularly scheduled for the last Saturday of each month is cancelled until further notice.
