For the time being please join us for weekly services on your Youtube page. We hope to see you in person soon!
Live virtual worship services
Now that the temperatures are dropping outside, SALC is moving to a live virtual service via Zoom starting November 22nd.
Registering for live virtual worship
Registering for SALC live virtual services is easy and done through our Facebook page. Please note:
- Registration is per household device logging into the Zoom meeting, not the number of people attending.
- If your plans change after you sign up and you are no longer able to attend the service, please unregister so someone else can potentially join.
- If you want to sign up but there are no slots available, please check back in a day or so. Slots may become available later in the week as people’s plans change and they unregister.
What is Zoom and how do I use it?
If you are struggling with all this Zoom language, and looking for some guidance on how to even access Zoom invitations, this is a very helpful guide to folks of all ages.
Communion during live virtual worship
We will be celebrating the Eucharist during our live Zoom worship each week. We affirm that God is at work in the consecration of the elements. What you will need to have ready at home are:
–Bread: when Jesus broke the bread and said “my body, given for you”, he used the bread that would have been present at most meals in the ancient world. You are invited to use the bread, crackers, or even tortillas that your family regularly uses at mealtime. Please do not use chips or cookies.
–Wine: we will be using red wine at the altar in the sanctuary, and invite you to use a red table wine, or a pure grape juice. Please do not use soda/pop, milk, or other beverages. If you do not have wine or juice, the bread is enough! That’s called Communion In One Kind, and is a common practice for many communities.
–If you need both or either of these elements, please let Pr Jenna or Anita know, and we will make sure you have access to the prepackaged communion items we have at the church. They come with a wafer and a thimble of grape juice.
What if I need help during the service?
Join early on Sunday and see tips for getting help.
Online worship services
For those that prefer not to worship live in-person or are homebound, St. Andrew offers pre-recorded services each week on the St. Andrew YouTube channel. The latest video will appear to the right as they become available.
At this time we ask you to give whatever you can. St. Andrew Lutheran’s missions reach out in many ways to our community, and we can’t do it without your ongoing support.
Deuteronomy 16:16b, 17 – “They shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed. Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God that He has given you.”
