SINCE YOU ANSWERED "YES" TO ONE OF THE PREVIOUS QUESTIONS,
we respectfully ask that you refrain from worshipping with us at this time. In order to protect all that may attend Good Sam, we are allowing only a limited number of healthy individuals following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the recommendations from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), as well as complying with all of the local and state restrictions.
The Bible instructs Christians to be faithful stewards of Creation (Genesis 1:28-30) and to take care of their neighbors - not just their fellow congregants or fellow Christians, but everyone, including the social outcast (the parable of the Good Samaritan; Luke 10:25-37) - a lesson we memorialize in the name of our church. From these teachings, we take note that we must be careful that our actions do not cause harm to others - a teaching we put into practice by taking positive steps to prevent even inadvertent transmission of this disease, as far as it is in our power to do so.
Please consider joining us online, as we will continue to provide the service in a digital format. Details can be found on our website.
