You may be wondering when and how we are going to start having in-person
services again. The Council of ALC has created 5 different teams to determine how and when
we can safely worship together again.
The five teams are: Worship...Facility...Fellowship...Outreach...Stewardship
Information about reopening safely seems to be changing daily. We are making many plans as we go forward. We are learning how to do things differently in these challenging times. You may even find some of the new things are fun! Please check back often for updates as we discern the best processes for reopening safely. Virtual worship & ministry continues.
Creative Arts Camp Update:
Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel this year’s Creative Arts Camp, which was scheduled to take place June 8th-12th.
We were very much looking forward to this event, as
we know many of you were. We are truly saddened that we will not be able to
spend time this summer laughing, playing games, making crafts, enjoying
creative snacks, and sharing Bible stories through drama and music.
We have made this decision out of an abundance of caution and a deep desire to love the members of our community the best way we know how, by maintaining physical distancing.
We look forward to Creative Arts Camp 2021!
Lord's Pantry Update:
The food pantry of ALC continues to operate weekly, Mondays from 6-7:30p. A drive-thru (walk-thru) procedure is in place at this time with prepackaged groceries for families.
The facilities task force is reviewing many areas in preparation for a return to in-person worship and activities:
Cleaning & sanitation: supplies, preparation, & training
Space consideration: only using areas we need
points; limiting touching of surfaces & clustering in common areas
Seating; how to maintain social distancing
Operational concerns: what to do with pew materials, parking, etc.
Volunteers will be called upon to service on various facilities service teams.
Advent Lutheran Church is in the Northern Texas- Northern Louisiana Synod of the ELCA.
