The Lord be with you!

We are preparing for the 5th Sunday of Easter, and we wanted to write to you and make sure that you have all the details on how you may participate.

If you go to the above page, you should be able to see our Livestream on Sunday morning. We’ll be testing and playing around with it the 10 minutes or so beforehand, but Lord willing, we’ll have it all up and going by 9 a.m. You can access it on a phone or tablet or computer. The suggestion is that you use a computer, or even better still is put it up on a bigger screen.

The Service of the Word

This Sunday we will be doing the Service of the Word portion of the Divine Service. That means the confession and absolution, Introit, Kyrie, This is the Feast, Collect, Readings, and the like. We obviously cannot have the Lord’s Supper. But the Word will be proclaimed, God’s praises will be sung, and we will pray to our Lord for His mercy during this time of trial.
