Join us for worship today using this video! You can find the order of worship we are using here. You may also want to have 5 candles available as a simple Advent “wreath.” Instructions on how to lay it out are in the order of worship and the video itself.
Out of concern about the escalating spread of COVID, and following Jesus’ command to love our neighbor, and the United Methodist commitment to “do no harm,” Bishop Laurie Haller of the Iowa Annual Conference has directed churches to suspend in person worship through January 10. In person worship at Glidden, Lanesboro, and Lohrville United Methodist Churches is therefore suspended until further notice. Online worship will continue, and we will continue to mail out worship services that can be done at home.
Currently Glidden plans to suspend in person worship until through January 10, as directed.
Lanesboro’s Leadership Council will meet December 9 to determine whether or not to continue with the suspension of in person worship though January 10, and whether or not to proceed with in person Christmas Eve worship.
Lohrville had already suspended worship for the rest of November and Ad Council meets December 1 to determine next steps.
I know it continues to be a wild ride, but loving our neighbor often means sacrifices. God ha been and will continue to be with us in these trying times.
Welcome to worship! Here is our worship video for November 15. You can find the order of worship here. Please let us know you have joined us for worship by sharing a greeting or a prayer request in the comments below.
Join us for worship this morning! In person at Lanesboro at 9:30 and Glidden at 10:30, or using this video. The video is designed to be used in tandem with our order of worship available here.
(Note: the theme and the fact that this is the Sunday after the election are a coincidence. The video was recorded before the outcome of the presidential election was known, and the election is not the focus of the sermon.)
