Dear Christ Lutheran Church family,
We’re writing with an update on the work of our Re-Opening Task Force, which has been meeting since May to discuss our plans, procedures, and goals during the pandemic. I hope you'll take a few minutes to read this update, which is in three parts: What CLC is doing now, what considerations have guided us as we've made our plans, and our future steps for the rest of the fall and into the winter. And as always, we invite you to be in touch to share your needs and concerns.
I. What we are doing now:
II. Our guiding considerations
III. Future Steps
Thank you for taking the time to read this update. We are aware that this has been an emotionally exhausting and controversial time for everyone, and we know that no decision we make together will satisfy everyone's needs and priorities. We are thankful for the assumption of good faith that has been extended by the congregation to us and our work. We will do our best to be worthy of it. We know that this period will end, and we pray that it will be soon. And we are deeply thankful to God for your continuing prayer and support, without which nothing we do or hope to do will be possible.
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Ben Dueholm
