MESSAGE OF HOPE
Greetings in Christ,
Living in this time of COVID-19 means daily, even hourly, changes. Schools, workplaces, national sports leagues, businesses, and religious denominations have closed down in order to slow the impact of this virus.
The Kingo Lutheran Church Council made the decision to cancel worship and ALL Kingo events until further notice. This decision comes under the advice from the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton.
In times of anxiety, worship has served as a source of hope for the community through proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. But, that also means we must consider what good news means for the entire community. The good news of Jesus Christ means caring for those most vulnerable to this virus as well as our health care workers and system.
Worship and prayer services will be available online until we can again worship in-person. We encourage you to share the experience of Midweek Connections with us during the week. Pause each day at noon to unite with one voice in prayer (see below). Then join All Peoples Church for a live stream worship experience Sunday mornings at 10:45 am.
May you know the comfort of God's presence in the sacred wilderness.
Pastor Carolyn Sellers Rizzo
