COVID-19 Guidelines:

With thanks to God for the opportunity to gather for worship in His house, and with respect for His representatives in our government, we will follow health guidelines to the best of our ability.

Hand sanitizer and facial tissue are available throughout our building and in each pew. Please try to touch as few surfaces as possible. 

We have plenty of seating.  Please spread out comfortably in alternate pews for safe social distancing.  If you like to sing out, please don't sit directly behind someone else. You are welcome to sit in the Fellowship Hall.

Our Offering Plate is on a stand in the entryway. We will not pass it through the pews. Ushers will bring it forward for placement on God’s altar at the usual point in the service. If you didn’t have the opportunity to place your offering in the plate before the service, you are welcome to take it to the counters in our Fellowship Hall after the service.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you think of any other guidelines, please tell Pastor or a church council member.

Dime and Dollar Thrift Store at 3268 Church Street (Business 51) in Stevens Point relies on donations and volunteers to produce a profit that goes directly to Northland Lutheran High School. 
   Donations are being gathered: One of our members has volunteered to work at Dime and Dollar, starting April 23. Any donations you’d like to make can be brought to church until then; she will take them to the store.
    In order to continue in its current capacity, the store is in desperate need of your help. First, if you have an interest in retail management, the store needs a part time manager to organize volunteers and oversee its general operation. Second, the store is struggling to keep pace with cleaning, pricing, and displaying the goods with so few volunteers. We can train you to enhance any current skills or interests you have or develop a new interest in an entirely different type of work. We need volunteers who are actively involved with customers as well as those who might only work when the store is closed or remotely from home doing various tasks. 
    Our store is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday (we are closed on Thursdays and Sundays), but the work can be done any time of day. Please contact Debbie Durst at 715-457-2663 or by email at durstfam1@gmail.com.
