In-Person Worship and Activities Suspended at First Lutheran

By January 15, 2022News
Dear First Lutheran Members,
The Executive Council of First Lutheran called a special meeting last night to respond to the critical COVID situation in Lincoln. With input from the COVID Task Force, it was decided to suspend in-person worship and activities for the time being. We anticipate this won’t last long, but long enough to get past the Omicron peak, which we are expected to reach in 2-3 weeks. The Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department is asking residents to only go out to work, school, buy food or get medical care and vaccinations for the next four weeks. We hope we won’t need to suspend in-person activities for that long, but we want to be responsive to the critical capacity situation in our hospitals right now. (
We will continue livestreaming the 8:15 am service on Sundays from our Facebook page and website so there will be no Saturday evening or 10:45 am Sunday services.
The annual meeting preview sessions tomorrow and next Sunday at 9:30 am will be on Zoom with only the presenters in person. Contact Kathleen for the link to join the virtual sessions. More information will be made available in the next week about the status of the annual meeting on January 30.
The 2021 Annual Report and the 2022 Nominee Bios are now available online to read and/or download. If you need a printed copy of each, please contact Cyndi to arrange for a pick-up time at church.
Our event with Dr. Theresa Milk tomorrow at 4:00 pm will also be on Zoom. If you would like to attend the presentation, please contact Sharon Hardel for the Zoom link.
The COVID Task Force meets again on Tuesday so we can advise on how to proceed over the next couple of weeks. We will continue to offer updates, as needed, in the coming days and weeks.
Thank you for your resilence, understanding and compassion during these difficult times.
Grace + Peace,
Pastor Erin
