Governor Reynolds has issued new guidelines for Iowa’s COVID-19 response that allows churches to hold services for more than 10 people at a time provided social distancing practices are maintained. She continues to advise those at high risk to remain at home for now. That would include the elderly, those with compromised immune systems, those with ongoing health issues, and anyone who feels sick in any way.
In light of the new guidelines, St. John’s has begun holding Divine Service for all who want to come beginning May 10. Congregation members from different family units will be seated in pews at least 6 feet apart. We will continue to offer only individual cups for the Sacrament and fewer communicants at a time at the rail. We would also ask our members to please not linger and visit in the entryway before or after the service.
We will keep offering 20 minute devotions with communion on the weekends for those who wish to continue isolating for the foreseeable future. We will no longer be having devotions for individuals or families on Wednesday or Saturday evenings.
There will be sign-up sheets below and on the bulletin board in the church hallway as before. Thank you.
