Quarantine Update at Estherville Lutheran

As you are probably aware, this week the governor has passed a resolution, which included the ability of churches to go back to public worship. However, there were many stipulations included in the order that would make it very difficult to hold worship at this time. After attending a conference call with the Western Iowa Synod, the Bishop announced that the ELCA Churches of the Western Iowa Synod will set their Quarantine date to May 31, to be re-evaluated at that time. I got the impression that the Synod is looking towards the first or second week in June to re-open the church for public worship. (Subject to change).

The ELC council also agrees that we are better off to be safe than sorry. It does not make sense to re-open until we are prepared to protect the members of this church. We will continue to record our weekly services as we have been doing and finding new ways to communicate with all of you. I know this is difficult for everyone; however, we will… get through this and be even better than before, as we shine the light of Christ into the world. Thank you for your patience in these difficult times.

Pastor Tim
