Transition Team Q & A for 11/06/20

November 6, 2020

Q: Is the [Transition] Team looking ahead to Advent and Christmas? Is there a plan to allow Christmas worship? How far ahead is the team forecasting?

A: In the early part of summer the Transition and Worship Teams began the discussion of various possibilities, alternative ideas, and safety measures for the upcoming Advent and Christmas seasons.  We are planning an online virtual service and work is underway for a number of outdoor nativity scenes telling the Christmas story.  Sadly, an indoor Christmas worship is on hold at this time.  As for forecasting, plans continue to evolve as we monitor the latest updates surrounding COVID. 

Thank you for your support and prayers.

Q: What information guided the decision to close the church building in October?

A: Upon assembling in May, the team used a comprehensive approach by reviewing resources such as the Greater Milwaukee SynodCDCWaukesha County COVID-19 DashboardWisconsin Department of Health COVID data, state mandates, county recommended guidelines and orders along with community resources that include local daycares, school districts, colleges, and universities.  The same comprehensive review of these resources will aid us in the evaluation to safely reopen the building.
