We will be celebrating with our 8th grade graduates on June 7th at 1:00 PM. The sanctuary will only be open for the graduating students and their families. However, members of the congregation are invited to join in via a private live stream. All members we currently have an email address for will receive a specific link to view the worship and celebration.
If you have not received an email from us in the last week with other announcements, please use this link to be added to our email list. https://www.stpaul-millington.org/subscribe.html
In addition, we would like to celebrate our High School and College graduates. Please send us a picture of your graduate and the school they are graduating from and we will add them to a presentation video that will be run during the graduation live stream. You may submit them via our official Facebook page or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to announce that we will begin opening the sanctuary for in-person attendance on May 30th at 7:00 PM and May 31st at 10:00 AM. In order to do so safely there will be additional requirements that everyone must follow.
The pastors of the Frankenmuth Circuit met via Zoom on May 12, 2020. They discussed the current situation relating to COVID-19 and also the Executive Orders by the governor. The Circuit Visitors had a meeting the day prior with representatives of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) legal team. It is their legal opinion that the Executive Orders (EO) exempt places of worship from the ban for public gathering. Of course, proper social distancing and other safety measures should be followed. We would not be in violation of the EO nor subject to any penalty when we choose to return to the sanctuary for worship.
The Michigan District of the LC-MS allows for decisions to be made relative to the situation in one’s own area. As a result of this, the Frankenmuth Circuit pastors want to be working in conjunction with each other as much as possible. We came up with the goal of regathering on Pentecost Sunday the weekend of May 30-31. This has wonderful symbolism as the Holy Spirit brought many together as believers, and it is after the EO ending on May 28th. Although there could be an extension of present restrictions, we believe we can move forward as explained to the Circuit Visitors by ADF. Each congregation will need to proceed as their circumstances and facilities allow. If a congregation starts earlier or later, this does not mean they are in defiance to this group proposal.
We are excited to announce that we will begin opening the sanctuary for in-person attendance on May 30th at 7:00 PM and May 31st at 10:00 AM. In order to do so safely there will be additional requirements that everyone must follow. Please read the details to find out how you can participate and keep our community of believers safe during this time.
We will be continuing to live stream our 10:00 AM service for those who wish to stay home at this time.
Additional and updated information will be added directly to this page. Please review this page for the latest announcements.
If you are interested, additional information on the history of this decision is available.
