The burden has increased, so that we are now in Phase 2; however, the worship schedule will remain unchanged.

Sunday – 8:00 am – Sanctuary – socially distanced with masks 
Sunday – 9:15 am – Sanctuary with LIVESTREAM – socially distanced with masks  
Sunday – 10:30 am – Out doors on Celebration Patio, socially distanced
Thursday – 12:15 and 6:15 pm – Sanctuary – socially distanced with masks

These are the guidelines we will follow for in-person. INSIDE, worship – we will:

…care for one another’s health. If feeling ill, we will remain home and worship online.
…masks are required by everyone regardless of vaccination status.
…distribute communion elements as you enter.
…place an offering box at the entrance of the worship space.
…sit where the bulletins are placed, in physically distant spots.
…there will be no congregational singing – we will be led by cantors
…have overflow seating in the Narthex and Fellowship Hall if we have more than 80 people attending.
…share a non-touch peace
…indoor fellowship will be paused.
…gather for fellowship on the Celebration Patio as we prepare for our outdoor service at 10:30 am.

STORIES OF FAITH IN ACTION 2021-2022

Stories of Faith in Action” connects us as church and illustrates how, through your generosity, God is at work across the ELCA. It highlights how a portion of your offering, called Mission Support, advances the ministry of our church, helping the ELCA nurture Christian community, raise up leaders, serve our neighbors and strive for justice. Most importantly, it’s one way to thank you for your faithful generosity to your congregation, your synod and the churchwide organization — by showing your offering at work. Click here to dive into the latest issue, which includes:

  • A special message from ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton.
  • Nine inspiring stories from around the country and the world.
  • Your 2020 financial report on Mission Support — the portion of your offering your congregation shares with your synod, and your synod shares with the churchwide organization.
  • A story-based devotional for use at Bible studies or committee meetings.
RESTOCKING OUR PANTRIES

At the beginning of the pandemic, Social Ministry donated all the food and supplies that were on hand in the food pantry to central distribution centers in our community. Now all these months later, the ministry has decided to resume some pre-pandemic activities. We are looking for items for emergency food baskets, Easter food baskets, Wausau Warming Center cleaning supplies and our Lenten hygiene drive.

A collection area will be set up in the Fellowship Hall for donated items. CLICK HERE for a printable shopping list of the items we are collecting.

EMERGENCY FOOD BASKETS

For those in need, Saint Andrew will again begin distributing emergency food baskets. If you know of someone who could use a food basket, please contact the church office.
