Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is after great deliberation and with heavy hearts that we have come to the decision to cancel this Sunday's communion services. We know that these services have become very meaningful and special to many of you and we don't take this decision lightly. With the exploding number of cases in our city and county we believe, at least for this week, that this is the best way to serve our members and friends. An article from the Gazette stated that El Paso County has surpassed the county's highest levels and have surpassed the number of infections that could cause a "stay-at-home" order.
Please join us in worship on-line as we continue to record the service (music, lessons, sermon and prayers) and post it on our website - saintlukes-cs.org.
Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes are due this Sunday. If you have one to drop off please contact Deaconess Kathy to make arrangements. The church will be open, via the top doors, Saturday from 9:00 to 11:30 am. We will be recording so please leave your boxes on the atrium tables.
We are praying for all of you during this difficult time and we ask that you pray for us as we continue to be the family of God in spite of the physical distancing we must do. And please don't hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns.
Yours in Christ,
Lay Vicar Peggy
