Outdoor Communion Services

Our next Outdoor Communion Service will be December 6th at 10am. We will be observing social distancing and wearing masks.   A limited amount of seating will be available.  (You may wish to bring your own seating).  We will still provide our regular recorded worship service with music, readings, message and prayers at rbts.online.churchYouTube and Facebook.  You may watch the service before or after coming to the church for Communion. Our outdoor service will have invocation, confession/absolution, Scripture, Creed, Lord’s Prayer and the Words of Institution.

This year the class will review all 66 books of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Classes are Sundays at 9:45am via Zoom. It’s not too late to join in! Contact Pastor Augie for more information.

LWM Meetings

Due to current circumstances resulting from the Coronavirus Epidemic with its ever-changing and uncertain implications impacting our personal lives, normalcy has become greatly compromised on all levels. Because of this, I as President of LWML, am announcing the CANCELLATION of both the LWML Board Meeting and the General LWML Meetings until further notice. I suspect, the possibility of holding our activities until January 2021.
Of course, I am always HOPEFUL that LWML will be able to do something for the upcoming holidays. But, only Our Lord knows.
