Latest Update 07/19/2021

In person Services have returned to Christ Lutheran on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM and Sunday morning at 10:00 AM.  Most of the hard previous restrictions have been removed including row spacing.  We continue to monitor the air freshness in the sanctuary and data thus far has been below the ASHRAE threshold. The C02 level continues to show  minor increases each week as more and members worship and we deplete oxygen during the service. We will continue to monitor these levels as long as rules are in place for similar venues such as school auditoriums.

Here are the latest recommendations and rules from our Church Council President Gary Williams.


As most of you know, the CDC has stated that individuals who have received the COVID-19 vaccine are highly unlikely to contract coronovirus.  In addition, they are unlikely to spread the virus to others.  On June 2nd the state’s mandatory mask rule will be eliminated.  With these actions in place, Council met on 5/18/2021  AND 6/08/2021to decide how Christ Lutheran should respond.  The following was decided:


1) Mandatory masks at small group meetings will no longer be required. Persons may still wear masks if they desire.  It is strongly recommended that those who have not been vaccinated continue to wear masks.  A small group is considered to be 13 or fewer persons.  Sign in for the meeting should continue to allow for contact tracing in the unlikely event that someone attending a meeting should be diagnosed with COVID-19.


2) Mandatory masks will no longer be required at worship services.  A straw count at last week’s Sunday Worship service found a majority of persons had received full vaccination status.  This greatly lowers risk.  Council voted to allow healthy, vaccinated persons to attend without a mask. It is strongly recommended that those who have not been vaccinated continue to wear masks                                                        


3) Reservations for worship services ( and other Sanctuary events) will no longer be required.  We also ask persons attending services to sign in to help with our requirement to be able to contact trace.


4) Singing at worship services presents additional risk. Council will monitor this at the next few worship services. For the present time, only one or two (if song is short) verses will be sung.


5) Communion will continue with the handout cups through the month of July.  Beginning the first of August, up-front communion (only by intinction will be re-introduced ) Watch for worship committee guidance for that future change in serving the Lord's Supper.


6)  In a separate action the council has voted to discontinue use of the common cup until further notice.


Council is hopeful that this will allow us to return to a more normal Church setting while still keeping us as safe as possible.  As time goes on, we will continue to assess further actions to finally return to pre-COVID life. 


We will be video recording the Sunday and/or Wednesday services and they will be available on line usually by noon that Sunday.  Further details will be posted on Facebook CELC E-Church Group and
 CELC HEATH channel.
