On May 16, 2021 the session of Good Shepherd eliminated the mask requirement for indoor worship in accordance with the governor's order rescinding a statewide facemask requirement. The city of Minnetonka also no longer requires face coverings indoors.
On June 5, 2021 the session of Good Shepherd eliminated the distancing requirement for indoor worship.
We will maintain the three options below for the morning service.
1. The indoor worship service (9:30am);
2. A livestream of the indoor worship service (9:30am);
3. The outdoor worship service (11:30am) continues as weather permits. We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Please bring your own chair.
The evening worship (5pm) continues to gather in the sanctuary and will also have the option of livestream.
I urge all of those who have concerns to consider their circumstances, such as wearing a mask, continuing to distance, joining for outdoor worship service, or watching on livestream.
I urge all of you to strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord (Heb. 12:14). Let us all aim for the greater goal to stand firm in one spirit with one mind and strive side by side for the faith of the gospel (Phil. 1:27).
