Thoughts from Pastor Brian of Lord of the Valley Lutheran Church
While our sanctuary is closed our hearts are open! We have moved our Sunday 9:30AM worship here, from our website, with a live streamed service on Zoom. Use the link above to join us. We also gather outdoors at 11:00AM, weather permitting. Please bring a chair.
With more people receiving the vaccines for Covid-19 we look forward to a time when we return to our sanctuary for worship and small group gatherings. But our current worship formats will continue for a while yet. We would prefer to be able to offer worship in person in the sanctuary, and look forward to doing so in the future, when we are confident it is safe to do so, for our members and friends, our musicians and staff, and those who visit Grand County. We will announce any changes here on our website.
In addition we are also offering an outdoor service in the parking lot at 11am on Sundays as the weather permits. Dress warm and bring a camp chair. Bulletins and elements for Holy Communion are now being made available or you may download or print the worship materials (above) and join us outdoors.
As a community in Jesus Christ we want to extend our care to those around us. Part of our expression of Christ’s love is to be mindful of the risks of transmitting this virus, especially to those most vulnerable. This describes a significant portion of our membership and friends who regularly would be present in worship. We do well to follow the wisdom of staying at home, keeping appropriate social distance, correctly wearing a mask or face covering and practice healthful ways of living through good diet, exercise and personal hygiene.
We are all encouraged to grow in our spiritual practices of prayer and meditation, scripture reading and study, writing and other creative activities.
Be kind and generous, to your loved ones, friends and neighbors… and yourself!
Let us continue to lean into the creativity that God has given us so that we remain close and connected during this time apart through phone conversations, email, text messages and other means of looking out for one another. God walks with us in promise and peace during these uncertain times.
Let us remain in Christ’s love,
Pastor Brian Bergum
