COVID-19 Guidelines for Safe In-Person Worship at Bone Lake

We are tentatively planning to resume in person worship at the church beginning Sunday, April 11th at 10:30AM.

There will be limited seating, as Covid-19 precautions and policies will be followed.  Seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and when the seats are filled, anyone remaining will be invited to worship from their cars.  Please be sure to read our guidelines prior to worship.

Prayer Beads with Pastor Mikayla

Many of our neighbors around the world use prayer beads as a spiritual practice.  Did you know that Lutherans can too?  Would you like to learn how to use them or hear some suggestions on how you can use them in your life of prayer?  Join Pastor Mikayla February 14 at 6:30PM on Zoom for a tutorial on how to make and use prayer beads.  Please RSVP to Pastor by February 1 so that we know how many kits to get and send out.

Annual Meeting

Join us for our annual meeting on Sunday, January 24.  We plan on starting around 11:30, following the worship service.  This year we’ll be having a “Parking Lot Meeting.”  You’ll be able to stay in your car and hear the meeting through you car radio.  There will be a few meeting helpers assigned to be outside to assist with the meeting and voting.  We ask that everyone else stays in their car.  See you then!
