LUMC is back to regular hours. Tuesday to Friday 9 AM to 3 PM
WORSHIP IN-PERSON for September and Beyond
LUMC continues to follow the COVID-19 guidelines of the provincial government and the local Windsor-Essex Health Unit. We also have a congregational Covid Response Team that counsels our leadership. At this time we will alter our procedures to adhere to Stage 3 Opening and because of some “4th Wave” caution and care LUMC has a few September updates.
WORSHIPPING AT LUMC
Assistance will happen. There will be greeters in the lobby and at the Welcome Centre. There will also be ushers that guide you to suggested seats and they will also guide you at release time, when the service is complete. Please ask – if you have any type of request regarding seating. Make sure you are comfortable in your church building.
Summer is now complete. Youth and Junior Youth Activities are underway. You can contact Youth Leader – Mykayla – for more information. Children’s programs are also being developed for Fall. Check the bulletin and Facebook pages for information as these develop.
LUMC will continue to broadcast services online. Our YouTube channel is “LUMC Church”.
Services are LIVE at 9:45 on Sundays and available, later, as recordings.
While the global pandemic of COVID-19 has presented challenges, please be assured that our church is still present as a community of Christian care. We are adhering to all Health and Safety Protocols as we continue to serve the spiritual and physical needs of our congregation and our community. As protocols change we will accommodate and inform you. Church leadership (Pastoral Ministry Team, Deacons, Church Council and Education Personnel) are all active and ready to address any of your needs and concerns. Please call during office hours or choose any way that is comfortable for you. And if you see a need that may belong to a friend, neighbour or fellow congregant, please help us identify that concern, as well.
So, in this time of being “home” a lot, please know that you can reach out to your church. If you would like help with physical supplies, a listening ear, prayer — anything… call and we will do our best to get you connected to an appropriate person.
“We are all Sisters and Brothers in Christ, and we need each other to help bear the load.”
