Dear Saints of Bethlehem Lutheran Church
As of Friday, May 1st, churches in Illinois now have “legal” clarification to gather in groups of 10 or less (See Bottom of Page 5). Granted, the church has this order by Divine right (Heb. 10:25) and is also protected from punishment under the First Amendment even before this new order went out. Nevertheless, we now have affirmative ‘legal’ documentation over and against fears of any legal punishments.
(1) In an effort for our congregation to return to its normal times of gathering around God’s Word and Sacrament, and (2) in order that we would be strengthened in the true faith during this time of testing, Bethlehem Lutheran Church is offering 25-minute Divine Services (Communion Included) to groups of nine beginning on Sunday, May 10th. You may sign-up for one of these slots HERE. You may also call Pastor Jennings at 618.545.9543 to schedule an appointment.
We will continue to post our 9:30am Sunday service and 8:30am Wednesday Matins on our Facebook page.
Your Servant in Christ,
Bethlehem Lutheran Church – Ferrin, IL
