Important notice from Oak Grove Lutheran Church
Church Council has moved to suspend in-person worship through January 10th 2021 - with the exception of Christmas Eve. There WILL BE in person outdoor Christmas Eve Services at 4:00 PM & 7:00 PM.
These were the following reasons named that informed Councils decision to suspend in person worship gatherings.
- The growing number of confirmed cases, suspected cases, and exposure quarantine occurrences in our immediate community.
- The Bishop's letter urging congregations to suspend in-person worship.
- To inhibit the spread of the virus and protect Oak Grovers.
- The desire to have Christmas Eve Services (if there was an exposure event before Christmas, we could lose the ability to have Christmas Eve services).
The Church Council has accepted the Worship Committees recommendation to have outdoor candlelight Christmas Eve Services at 4:00 PM & 7:00 PM. There will be a virtual only Christmas Eve Service at 5:00 PM. Stay tuned for more details!
With consultation with the Church Council, Pastor is lifting the current quarantine on the Church Building. Which means that you can enter the building if you have church business. While Pastor and family are continuing to use caution, at this point, there is a very low chance of risk, especially when exercising mask and social distancing precautions.
While we are beginning to gather physically we are still active virtually. Meetings are taking place via Zoom and worship services are streamed live on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/oakgrovelc/. Services can also be found under the “Sermon” tab on this website.
