QUESTIONS CONCERNING CHURCH WORSHIP SCHEDULE IN LIGHT OF CORONA VIRUS
Why are we “canceling” church services?
We are not canceling church! The Board of Elders has unanimously agreed that beginning Sunday March 22, thru March 31, 2020 that traditional church services, Bible studies and meetings will temporarily be suspended. Alternate worship and study plans will be made available to the congregation so that you may continue your worship at home. It was with prayerful consideration that these decisions were made to protect the safety and welfare of our church body during the pandemic by not gathering as a large group, following the recommendations of Federal, State and Local officials
How will I receive worship information materials?
Alternate home worship materials will be shared with church congregation primarily through email, text, and our website (http://www.gracelutheran-tx.org and on www.facebook.com/glcvictoria.org). US Mail or hand delivery will be made if you do not have email or internet.
We encourage you to use these materials at home to worship at our regular 9:10 am Sunday worship time and Lenten Midweek Services Wednesdays at 7:00 pm. While we will not be together as one church body physically we will be together as one body in worship.
Please make sure the church office has your current and correct email address. You may email Tammy at the church at, firstname.lastname@example.org , or contact the church by phone at 361-573-2232 or contact your Elder with your email information or other preferred contact information.
In additional the church is exploring other means of home worship through live streaming using our website, Facebook, YouTube, etc.. We are currently set up for a live stream service which can be found at www.facebook/glcvictoria.org. Current and past live streams are available. This is new to us all, so please be patient as we work through all the bumps and hiccups and call us if you have any questions.
Will the church be open?
At this time, the church office will remain open during this period. You may contact Tammy at the office by phone or email.
Will the Pastor be available?
Pastor Keith will also be available for any pastoral needs. Please contact the church office to confirm his availability. You may also contact your Elder by phone
How will I make my church tithes and offerings?
Contributions can be made through US Mail. The mailing address is:
Grace Lutheran Church, 9806 NE Zac Lentz Pkwy, Victoria, Texas 77904
It is important that our monetary tithes and offerings continue during this time as expenses for the church have not stopped.
