April 1, 2021

Dear Friends in Christ,

Now that we have resumed ‘in-person” worship services at 9:30 a.m.  we have special needs!  There will be a Time, Talent and Interest insert in your Holy Week bulletins with immediate needs in bold print.  Every baptized believer of all ages are gifted for a ministry!  Please place them in the offering plates after the services.

I am hopeful you will invite someone to the informal and casual, 7:00 a.m. “Easter Sunrise at SouthPark!”  An Easter Egg hunt will follow the service as well as the more classical service at 9:30 a.m.  Please use SignUp Genius via www.tlclawrence.org for all 9:30 a.m. services or you may call the church office for reservations in order that we stay within our “60 seated in the pews” limit.  The in-person worship services are concurrent with the live-stream which also can be accessed via www.tlclawrence.org.  The KLWN radio broadcast continues at 11 a.m.  In the spirit of loving our neighbor masks are required and the offering plates and communion elements will be in the narthex.  Please take the elements to your pew so you may commune where you are seated.  Bulletins are placed where you are encouraged to sit in encouraging social distancing at all times.

In Christ,

Jeffery Alvestad, Pastor
