Expectations for Our Worship
You can expect a message of good news of Jesus Christ crucified and risen. This proclamation is evident in our prayers, our songs, our sermons, and the sacraments. Our hope is that you will clearly hear this message of life and grace spoken to and in the midst of the realities of this world that you face daily.
Temporary Drive-In Service of Holy Communion Sunday at Good Shepherd
FAB Parking Lot. Enter from Hanson Avenue only. An assistant with gloves and a mask will distribute communion elements to each car on a disposable plate. Hold on to these elements as we will commune together during the service. The package is double sealed—the wafer is under the top seal and the juice is under the bottom seal.
Sunday at 9:30 AM (prelude music at 9:15 AM)
How to Tune In:
Set your radio to station 98.1 FM when you arrive. The FM signal is short range, so you will need to be in the FAB parking lot to hear the service on the radio.
What to bring:
You will need to print a bulletin to bring. There is a link to the bulletin on the gslc.com website. A limited number of copies will be placed outside the church office on a table by Friday at noon.
GUIDELINES AND SAFETY RULES:
- You are welcome to start your car during the service or leave it running if necessary.
- If you drive a large or tall vehicle, please be considerate by parking in a farther row back if possible to avoid blocking others from seeing worship.
- Stay in your vehicle before and during the service. Stay in your vehicle after the service unless you need to use the restroom. Restrooms in the FAB will be available after the dismissal at the end of the service. You must wear a mask and children must be accompanied by an adult to use the restroom.
- No yard chairs.
- Please, no physical greeting from car to car.
- The playground is off limits and locked.
- Entry to the buildings will not be available during the service.
Expectations of Our Worship
Worship is not a spectator event or a form of entertainment; the expectation of our worship is that it is the work of all the people. This means it is not just the pastors or others in leadership roles who say and do things while everyone else observes. Our bulletins (and members) will assist you with when it is time for all the people to speak and sing.
No one will force you to sing or speak if you do not wish to do so. (You definitely will not be asked to introduce yourself to the whole congregation.) We hope, however, that you will feel encouraged to give praise to the living God by participating in our collective worship.
