Since the “Safer At Home” Order for Wisconsin allows up to ten people to gather for religious services, St. Paul Lutheran Church will offer Communion on two days:
Palm Sunday (April 5, 2020) from 9:00-11:00am and Maundy Thursday (April 9, 2020) from 6:00-8:00pm.
Please note these special guidelines:
Stop by at your convenience during either or both of the two-hour times.
Since we are limited to ten people gathering at a time, a Councilman will be at the Larson Street entrance to ensure no more than nine people enter at any given time. (Pastor Strand will be the tenth person there.)
A table will be set up near the baptismal font with the bread and wine. Pastor will give Communion there. A plate with separate wafers will be there for you to take your own, as well as individual cups for the wine.
Please maintain six feet of social distancing at all times.
• Or text the word Give with the amount (e.g. Give 100) to 715-280-2876

Let’s pray that this will all be over soon and that we can get back to normal life.
God looked at our broken world and loved it. He sent his Son to bring God’s love and forgiveness to people in desperate need of both. The child born in a Bethlehem stable came to live for us, die for us, and rise from the dead to be our Savior. Join us to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ! Our worship will feature an inspiring message, favorite Christmas carols, and a place to find God’s world-changing love.
