Beginning in June we will begin to gather together outside only for worship on Sundays for outdoor worship.
No one except worship staff and volunteers in the building those days.
Everyone will be asked to bring their own lawn chair, and be respectful of the physical distancing norm of six feet distance apart between each other.
Families will be encouraged to sit together.
Those who still feel vulnerable because they are elderly, have underlying health conditions, or are families with young children will be encouraged to stay home or at a minimum remain in their cars for the worship service.
If it is raining, again, we will proceed with worship outside but ask everyone to listen from the inside of their cars. An FM transmitter is being purchased so that people can listen to the service from their car in the parking lot.
We will set up in front of the building near the bell tower. The driveway will be blocked off there.
We will continue to post the Sunday morning worship service on the church website, Church YouTube channel, and Church FaceBook page.
As we attempt to begin meeting outside we will also attempt to make our worship service available livestream on the church FaceBook page in real time.
St. Ansgars practices open communion. All who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are welcome to the Lord’s Table. We offer instruction for “first time” Communion in 5th grade. If a child from another congregation has received instruction at a younger age, we honor that instruction. If parents of a child younger than fifth grade believe that their child is ready for instruction, we will offer that instruction to children younger than 5th grade.
