The congregation of Our Saviour Lutheran Church, Fort Qu’Appelle, SK, has implemented the following changes to services and church activities and visitations in an effort to prevent and control the potental 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 enjoy fellowship, hear the Word and serve our Lord. Please help us to avoid our last resort which is to close the church.

Effective March 15, 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.

Seating: Try to space out in the pews. Do not sit directly in front of or behind someone.

Communion: No more than 4 people at the Altar at once. Individual cups will replace the use of the Chalice. Pastor will either wear latex gloves or use tongs to handle the wafers.

Lenten Soup Suppers are also cancelled until further notice. The Monthly Men’s Breakfast regularly scheduled for the last Saturday of each month is cancelled until further notice.
